    Headlight problem on 2007 GranTurismo

    With such a poor/fragile design, I can't understand why others aren't suffering. We cant be the only two with issues! Or are we the only people who don't have a garage, and drive our cars in the dark and wet?

    THE ROAD TO LE MANS 2019

    Well that could have been embarrassing! Especially as she ripped off your manbits and stuffed them down your throats on the ferry. (Followed by mine as I was clearly to blame!) Close thing for all involved! ;)

    Car in for MOT & Service - fingers crossed!

    A pre-check might of helped, but here's the list: Waiting for an estimate. The annoying things are: - you fail for seat adjustment! (I only noticed last week that the seat wasn't moving forward when I put my bag in the back - thought nothing of it) - I never use my handbrake (am I alone?)...

    Parking Sensor Failure

    Mine stop working when there is the slightest moisture in the air. They were fine all summer, but have now hibernated - putting it down to moisture in the boot.

    Maserati GT Rear Parking Sensors

    You can see it through the near side removable panel inside the boot (about 6 inch square). Mine were working briefly in the summer but have now ‘flown south’ for the winter as well! Was going to WD40 the heck out of the unit, but think I need to take the whole of the boot inside cover out to...

    Maseratis - Spotted

    Nice Silver 3200 GT driving through Swavesey yesterday lunchtime. (Pity an ugly SLK got in the way - otherwise we could have 'promenaded' in style!)

    Wont start.

    Not a mechanic myself, but I like the 'Interference at Level Crossing' theory myself. So much more 'romantic'. The things you have to look out for when owning a Maserati!

    Stumbled across a Maserati dealership in USA...

    ...on a recent work trip. Was in Charlotte NC last week, and my hotel was next to an Import Dealership (Astons, Alfas, Ferraris, Bentley's and Maseratis) Enjoy!

    Headlight problem on 2007 GranTurismo

    Hi Phil It's a long story, but in summary: 1. Headlight must be cracked, as misting up. 2. Condensation is blowing ballast units (seen corrosion in connector of most recent ballast to blow - cheap ebay unit) 3. Decided to buy New unit from Eurospares (£1500) - Out of stock at factory, and no...

    Anyone know of an Offside Granturismo Headlight going cheap?

    Hi Safrane, Eurospares only have new available at the moment. What do you mean by "breaker only (forum sponsor)"?
