    Battery? ‘11 GTS MC Shift

    Thanks, I did check the terminals and did think they seemed ok, but after wiggling them with a little more force there was a very small amount of play on the positive terminal. I’ve just tightened it up and will leave it until tomorrow to see if this resolves the issue. If anyone has any other...

    Battery? ‘11 GTS MC Shift

    Hi all, was wondering if someone could help. The last few times I’ve driven the car, there has been the odd occasion where it seems there was a spike in the power and the lights flick off momentarily, it knocks it out of sport mode and a few of the times it has come up saying ‘park on’ and then...

    2011 facelift ??

    Front bumper was replaced.. This was for sale a few months ago. I actually even test drove it when it was for sale previously as it was only down the road from me, and at the time I hadn't driven a GT. I had no intention of buying because of mentioned wing, the fact the bonnet was butchered to...

    Maseratis - Spotted

    Shelsley Walsh breakfast club today, lovely white Granturismo S parked down in the paddock, and again on my way home a lovely white Grancabrio followed me from Malvern link up to Great Malvern. Nice to see there’s others locally!

    NEWBIE

    I personally think that the number of owners on cars such as these is not necessarily a bad thing. Because of the type of car it is, its not really a car the general public would stumble upon to get from A to B and run into the ground and neglect, you'd have to want one to get one. If a car had...

    Detailing result

    Of course! amongst the other seemed-a-good-idea-at-the-time items!! That's not a bad shout. I'm currently looking for a banger to use until my new company car arrives as to not use the maser daily, so I shall probably inflict my awful cleaning skills upon that until they are up to scratch...:cool:

    Detailing result

    Thanks for the kind words and the tips chaps. I've always been a bit useless at cleaning cars.. I've bought all the kit a while ago, but used it once and produced a less than desirable result and not touched it since. I'll dig it out and have another go, and if its as bad as my last attempt the...

    Detailing result

    So I dropped the car off to be detailed the other day.. picked it up this evening, and what a result. It’s had a two stage machine polish, ceramic coating on the bodywork, glass coated and the side PPF replaced. It was done by Tom at Ultimate Auto in Worcester, and if you’re local I can’t...

    Stradale with blue interior

    I personally think the blue interior compliments Bianco Fuji extremely well, purely for the MC12 factor. Add some blue graphic details as per the attached and I think you would have the most stunning strad on the road.

    Stradale with blue interior

    I like the blue interior.. but not on that body colour. Needs to be a blue metallic, or Bianco Fuji for an MC12 feel.

    GT MC Shift... Clutch Failure, and where to get it replaced?

    I'm new to Maserati ownership so have no real experience to speak of, but I recently booked a service with Migliore in Bromsgrove and got a quote for a clutch change for future reference. Although they said the parts price tends to fluctuate a bit, i was told currently it would be around £2.5k +...

    I'm 28 with 8 years NCD, and it costs me around that with Churchill for my Granturismo 4.7.

    Question of the day

    None of the above.. a clue is it’s part of an engine

    Question of the day

    No problem and thank you! Right, ok.. I’ll continue the Maserati theme with perhaps a bit of an easier one. Before their race cars, what were Maserati best known for?

    Hi.. Another potential owner

    Thank you! It's certainly a credit to its former keeper!

    Hi.. Another potential owner

    So following on from my original post here, at the end of last month I finally bought a GTS MC Shift that I imagine some on here are familiar with, as I bought the car from Ewan after seeing him list the car for sale on here. Thanks again to Ewan for his hospitality and being such a gent, and...
