I would assume than most of it was indeed. I guess my variators did not fail yet, which is why I didn't have that typical loud noise on start up. And yes, Maserati official distributor said it was the variators... Anyways, I end up with new variators, solenoids, chain guides, tensioners, belts, etc. At the same time I also replaced my expansion tank (second time in 5 years), this time it was not cracked but not looking great, as well as the AC condenser since it had a very small leak. So let's call this the BIG service ;) I guess the car is good to go for a while. We found the part, not cheap but we have it without having to purchase the whole head... So it should be fine

As a side note, after driving a 08 Audi S5 V8 in the meantime, I really enjoy the outrageously loud exhaust in sport mode!
