  6. do you know of any "easter eggs" to be found in the granturismo?

    There is the usual hold the unlock button down for a few seconds and all the windows/sunroof will start to open - keep it held down to open all the way. Conversely, hold the lock button down and any open windows/sunroof will close.
  7. In the market for '09-'12 QP GTS

    QP5 2003-2012
    Agree with GTS Man on all fronts. I think the QP GTS is one of the most beautiful looking and best sounding cars on the planet. Buy a good one and you cannot go wrong - aesthetics, aural pleasure, driving feel and general appreciation by folks from all walks of life. If it is out of...
  8. HID fog lights for GT-S

    Was that a pun? :thumbsup: ;)
  9. question for those with ZF transmission and DBW module

    Hi Jinster, a factory gear shift mapping reset is the best way to get rid of the kangaroo effect. The car tries to be clever by adapting the gear shift mapping over time to match the driver's style but is not very successful at it!

  12. look at what this guy did to his GranTurismo...

    This is so unnecessary as the the Maserati already has arresting looks!
  13. Cooling system problem

    QP5 2003-2012
    If this is a Spyder then you might have more luck posting in the Coupe/Spyder/GS section.
  14. Call me crazy but...

    Have you tried contacting Maserati HQ to see if they could help, even on a goodwill basis? Regardless of warranty periods (I assume you do not have a 2 year extended warranty), this should not happen on a 29,000 mile engine and speaks of faulty engineering. Are you likely to lose less money by...

    The clinking sound could be worn bushings on the front and/or rear control arms - it's basically metal on metal sound. I am not sure that if it were worn bushings, if would create the vibrations though. Replacing the bushings will tighten up steering feel, eliminate vagueness and make it feel...
