Just moving this conversation back over here (from Pic of the Day) for @Ebenezer @Contigo @Alan Surrey @Oneball @Motorsport3 to enjoy.

To answer Eb's question, Matt has a couple of little bits of trim to fit. I'm awaiting arrival of the steering wheel (hopefully the airbag won't have gone off in the truck). I also have a GT S grille on order, and a plan to have the callipers painted the correct colour (red), as seen here:

Plus I need to do something about the radio switch that Matt thought he might have fixed but hasn't. But maybe that's for my ICE guys in Cheltenham. Who could also install a dashcam, and maybe Matt's Android upgrade kit.

Also thinking about louder indicator clickers and Maserati-branded puddle lights.

Will book in with Matt when the GT S grille arrives from Italy.

Does anyone know: can leather in the colour of choice be retrofitted to a steering wheel with black leather?
Or perhaps the black leather can be recoloured.
Wouldn't it be nice it it matched the upholstery :)
I do fancy it.
Has anyone done it successfully?

Ah no puddle lights.....So Halfords and Max Power.

Yes it can be recoloured. I presume you’ve posted your dinner reservation in error.

looks like a classy place, they’ve even got a drive thru. Bit of a trek though.

Well, stage 2 of the upgrade is complete! (Stage 1 was buying something.)

My 'new' QPV has spent the summer in Hampshire having about 25 things fixed or improved. Now with correct-coloured callipers, wood steering wheel, concave grille (or grill - I really don't care any more), wipers that don't go clunk, etc, etc. Great job by Matt, but it did take a while!

Looking pretty sharp:

91788

91790

Now on to the next things.... Paint correction and ceramic coating, dash cam, Android Auto, sexy puddle lights, louder indicators, different number plate....

Nice Mark, glad it’s all fettled and up to standard now.
