4200 replacement radiator identical to the one that I pulled out of my car only over half the price of getting it from the dealer

The same company does them for other Maserati models. As they are the only "OE" alternative I am guessing that they are from the same factory as the OEM maserati radiators

No worries! I installed one in my car in August and did 3400 miles to Amalfi and back with no problems. The fit is perfect just remember to factor in some new radiator mounts as the section that has a bush tends to sheer off when trying to transfer off the old rads.

Small note on the price its not always on offer. I got mine for £160 delivered but the price immediately went up to over £200 after I ordered it so if you are in the market keep an eye on it and search the product code on google "MR2002"

Photos attached and the thread I did on it at the time: https://www.sportsmaserati.com/index.php?threads/maserati-4200-water-radiator.26723/

£160.39 at the moment with free delivery on Autodoc - wish I had seen this first! Managed to get nearly new showroom stock OEM for the 3200 parts bin but was more expensive. D@mn! D@mn!

I've seen some Audi/Porsche/VW TPMS ECU's on eBay for about 20 quid that look identical to the Maserati/Ferrari/Bentley ones, I'm going to take a punt on one since mine still doesn't work and two suppliers of seccy-hand ones have let me down recently.
Did you ever order these? Were they direct replacements?

I did, the circuit board looks more or less the same, but the connector is different.

I’ll do some pics tmrw, just driven from Dublin to Wakey via Bolton to collect my Fender Electric XII that my bro was going to get resprayed off a mate that’s he’s has 18 months and done nowt with so i’m knackered,

Took the QP, flawless.....

The springs were strong-as on mine, the rest was rotten, if you're going to have a problem I would say it would more likely to be with the backplate, incidentally, anyone with an auto, does the handbrake hold when you put it into drive?
This was the "good" side. And look at the state of that tie rod!

i replaced my backing plate couiple of years ago when they were still easy to get, they were so rusty.
and no i have never tried to hold the car on the handbrake, its an auto you dont need a handbrake :) its only for the MOT then you back it off so the shoes dont stick and get detached from the shoe carrier like they are in your picture!!! :)
