Saw your post on the Maserati Owner's forum. What does NIT stand for - I'm not familiar with the acronym.

I dropped my dealer an email, asking if he can get the update done for my '02 Spyder - he has the car until next Thursday, so the timing is good!

I spoke with my dealer via email today - the NIT update was indeed installed on our '02 Spyder sometime over the last 2 weeks.

If I can see anything new, I'll drop a line on the forum.

I just picked up my 2002 Spyder after the dealer performed several updates, inluding the NIT. The NIT change updates the software driving the center console screen.

That update brings some new Nav and radio features - the one I like is the ability to turn NAV routing off (finally!). The actual Nav map display looks identical (I did not receive new disks as part of the update, so the maps themselves didn't change). I'll play around with the system next week to see if I can find any other new or changed features.

My dealer said there's an upcoming change to improve radio reception. It will be wiring change and takes 11 hours to complete. My guess is that the change requires the replacement of a major wiring harness. I'm not certain I'm going to have that update performed.

From memory, here's the list of updates applied by the dealer:
- New fuel lines
- NIT update as mentioned above
- Updated Cambiocorsa software
- Replaced clutch with 2004 spec unit (two-tang)
- Replaced AC control computer (fixes Battery Low problem)
- Steering column bolts recall
- Replaced valve covers and ground off post allowing cover to seal

There might be a couple more that I can't remember. Paperwork from the dealer is being sent my way next week, so I'll re-check the list then.

Brad,

Could you explain what this does.

Thank you,

Tom
I'm not blessed with much information on this topic, but apparently at least some of the 2002 cars were equipped with a clutch that doesn't hold up as long as desired (or is noisier than owners would like). A newer design was created by Maser and they offer a no-charge retrofit for all cars under warranty.

My guess is that the newer design uses dual springs for quieter operation and less 'jolting' as the clutch is engaged. That's truly a guess on my part.

On our 2002 (with NIT update), the radio turns back on once the NIT initializes. Takes a while (perhaps 20 seconds), but it does come on without any manual intervention.
