After reading so many threads lately from Maser owners on whether or not it is a good idea to annually replace the F-1 relays on our cars, I spoke today with Service Writer Mitch at Ferrari-Maserati of Orange County (California). That dealership has done all the service on my 2003 Coupe CC and Mitch has always been a "straightshooter" with me. After confirming with him (via check of my VIN#) that my car has received all of the F-1 clutch software updates over the years, I asked Mitch his opinion of the annual replacement of the F-1 relay. He said that Maserati neither recommends for or against it. He said his Technicians typically only replace the relay when they replace the pump itself. He said for those who decide to do it more often, the part is about $90 and the labor would be about $60, for a total of about $150. FYI.
