Independent Maserati mechanic near Atlanta

Does anyone know of any independent maserati mechanics in Atlanta. My 06 QP is almost due for a new clutch. I was going to order the parts from Eurospares or Ricambi America whose prices are much cheaper than the stealer. But now my service advisor told me he has to get the ok for me to bring my own parts for service even though they are original maserati parts. The stealers' prices are almost double which is rediculous.

Just thought that i would second the request for any independent mechanic in the ATL. The dealer just quoted me $3000 for two year service on my 07 QP Auto. I knew that maintenance would be pricey but that does not sound right for a car with 6000 miles

That's the same price they quoted me. We have no other choice here in atlanta besides Ferrari of Atlanta. Most of the time I just pay it and complain to myself later. But now I'm trying to save some money by getting the parts before service. They won't waranty the parts just the service and the parts must be Maserati OEM.

Atlanta Independent Service?

Did anyone ever find a place to take their Maserati in Atlanta besides the dealer? I'm moving to Atlanta in a couple of weeks, and although I just had my yearly oil change/service, I'm coming up on 30k miles and will probably need the 30k service toward the end of the year.

I also have other items I'd like someone less expensive to repair, if possible!

To be honest, I was using the dealership, Park Place. But now that the car is out of warranty, I probably used them for the last time last week for my yearly oil change ($480) and because I'm moving.

Park Place has been fairly reasonable for a dealer.

There are a lot of others on this board from Dallas that can probably give you some suggestions for Dallas, however.

YEP! I don't know what else they did because they sent me the bill in the mail as I was in a hurry to the airport... I think they do a few other things than JUST change the oil, but not much.

They also charged $300 to charge the battery (It never fully charged after getting new battery - not from dealer) and reset the computer so they could complete my yearly state inspection. Again, a little pricey but as I was in a hurry and didn't have time to do it myself, I just paid it.

Sorry to dig up an old thread but I found that Ringtec Atlanta services Maserati. They replaced the clutch in my '06 QP. A couple grand cheaper than the dealer. 770.998.4930

Our regular price for a QP oil change is $225.

That includes an OEM Maserati oil filter, MOTUL full-syn oil and we reset the service indicator with the factory scan tool.

Update to previous post:

The fluid distributor that we used to get Motul oil from has unfortunately gone out of business, and I can no longer run the $225 QP oil change. Due to the fact we're paying almost twice as much for oil now, for the time being an oil service is regular price $310+tax, except when we're running specials.
We try to keep our overhead costs and prices as low as possible for you guys, and will continue to do so.

Hey Scott- Maserati recommends a 15k mile service interval.

That's fine if you're leasing your car, but if you own it I highly recommend an "in-between" oil change as well at the 7,500 mile mark. Even using the various pricey exotic synthetic oils that people put in these cars, after 15,000 miles it generally looks like mud when we change it.

The in-between oil change is just a little extra relatively cheap insurance for engine life.

Excuse me, I made a mistake there. The current Maserati factory service schedule is on a 12,500 mile interval. Functionally, the difference between a 12.5k and 15k oil change is negligible, but for the sake of accuracy, your in-between oil change would be on a 6,250 mile interval.
