MASERATI MAINTENANCE PROGRAMME
With service intervals of 12 months/12,500miles for diesel models (and 24 months/12,500 for petrol models), your Maserati won't be spending long in the service bay.

Well it's due one then, I service yearly regardless of mileage, to get health check etc. Peace of mind on highly strung cars!

Stunning colour combo. Mine has the same interior (dark charcoal exterior), but is MC Shift. I absolutely wanted that interior. But I realize that it's a personal preference.

This has been for sale for ages. I think it may have been wrapped in pink at one stage. Look at the interior pictures and you can see it around the doors and window frame.....unless it's a trick of the light but I do seem to remember the original advert many months ago which I think had the wrap on.

No trick of the light, you can see the pink flank in the mirror of one of the photos. Wonder what, if any, paint damage was incurred applying and removing the wrap.

Pink wrap and DKR interior... subtle.

To merge two different threads, if she did it would be interesting whether this increases or decreases the value of this car... could be Messi!

They have now changed some of the pictures but left the interior ones where you can see the wrap. Why would you not take 2 minutes and take new ones of the interior ?....No px on this one they say.

With any GranTurismo/QP you need to get them up on a ramp and inspected. They really are not doing well in that department.

Chassis plates, well we all know they disintegrate but are simply a bolt on part so easy. The main are of concern is the triangular box section of the front subframe that runs between the upper inbound wishbone mounting points. Water sits inside it and they rust from the inside out.

Poke it with a screwdriver, chances are you will go through it on most 8-10 year old cars and older.

If there is one thing you spend money on it should be an underbody corrosion treatment and seal.

All the pipes/unions are tarnishing badly too.

The other common are we are seeing is front upper wishbone bushes. They last 25-30k and no more.

Very true, the corrosion on mine from one year to the next was quite shocking and fortunately was caught in time by AV Engineering, and suitably cleaned up and protected last year. But ignore a rusty subframe at your peril, it will be the death of many Granturismos for sure
