  2. How to determine if 09-12 Quattroporte GTS has Skyhook

    QP5 2003-2012
    So I'm very close to squeezing the trigger and am looking @ a couple of the above iterations away from my area and will be depending on a PPI from a Maserati knowledgeable shop with a Leonardo. But I was thinking, is there a way to determine, say by VIN #, if the individual unit came with...
  3. My car shut down and wont start..please HELP!

    QP5 2003-2012
    Hey Damien, any updates? It's been 7 days since your last post. Good luck and I hope it was something truly simple like a new battery. Many of these units were sold with a battery tender when new I believe, so the manufacture knew they could indeed be electrically impaired so to speak.

    Wow that's great info. I'll look just to have the information. So if I'm vetting a year model 2009 it will have the older variators correct? Thanks Hans

  6. 09 and later Quattroporte Sport GTS PPI Questions

    QP5 2003-2012
    Yes it does help very much! Thanks! But, a question: I'm only one guy doing my own work so how do I get the hood back on after "taking it off to see if there are any Skyhook wires coming out of the ....." Sorry, but you left yourself wide open for that one ....and being the type of...
  7. 09 and later Quattroporte Sport GTS PPI Questions

    QP5 2003-2012
    thanks Kolohe...hmm...interesting as I spoke with a service tech @ a SoCal area Maserati dealership and he said all GTS's had Skyhook. Curiously the Q GTS that I'm considering is also a 2009 year model! Is there any way to determine, say certain character or number sequence in the vin # or...
  8. 09 and later Quattroporte Sport GTS PPI Questions

    QP5 2003-2012
    So I have a couple of fundamental questions concerning a possible purchase of the above iteration and the due diligence needed regarding the mandatory [to me] Pre purchase inspection. 1. Are these units Skyhook and if so are there any modules that can be inspected with a decent scanner or is...

  11. Looking to buy a 2012 S. What to check?

    QP5 2003-2012
    FliGuy: Have you considered importing a US Spec unit? Obviously they're much more numerous here and you probably have a better chance of finding one that hasn't been so neglected and with a complete service history. At the worst case, you at least have "done the behavior" and practiced vetting...
  12. New to me 87 Spyder few questions

    Biturbo Maserati
    Sorry you're having such problems, but it is 28 year old ITALIAN electrical system and "technology". Gives the Brits a run for their money, lol. My Alfas were always quirky, but not like that!! Seriously though, what is the back story on this base unit? Stored? Neglected? Auction? Like any...
