How bad is Maserati parts supply

Someone pulled out in front of me on 24th March and it damaged my bumper and grill. Anyway long story short the car was collected a week later and taken to Chartwells in Derbyshire.
I still haven't got it back due to the poor parts supply from Maserati.

I really can see the end for Maserati now that Ferrari are stopping engine supply and they don't seem to care about their customers

Surely this is an issue with any limited batch production car... Maserati, Ferrari, Lotus, McLaren, Lamborghini etc. Situation will be similar with all of these.

If you want easily available parts with lots of pattern options I suggest swapping to a Mercedes E Class Coupe :)

I’ve never had any issues with parts if I’m honest in fact I would say they are better than most.

I use Meridien for all my parts.

I order from Land Rover a lot and if you order before 15.00 hours that part is here next day
With Maserati everything seems to be on back order
I understand they are a low production car but surely fast moving parts should be on the shelf?

Is it worth ringing JCT or similar and see if they’ve got one or can get one as a main dealer and then get it sent to the guys who have the car?

Why didn’t it just taken somewhere local in the first place?

Admiral said they send their high end cars to Chartwells in Derbyshire rather than your standard body shop as they deal with Lambo, Ferrari etc.
I don't think JCT600 have a body shop David but I might be wrong.
