I wouldn't brag about getting ripped off honestly....I honestly don't know what you had done, but a service on these cars doesn't cost 3K...Just saying...If you are happy then great, but I find that excessive to get one of those serviced...Jason
Jason not bragging .. Simply pointing out it could be worse $$$$ … I have neither the skills nor the desire to DIY … So maybe Jason you just stay in your “lane” don’t assume anyone’s intent with remarks in this forum …

Sock, the 38 a wheel, is that sensor installed and works on the 07-12 models? I know the 13 and up you can do basically any new sensor and it will recalibrate. From research the older GT etc even when you buy sensor, you have to go to dealer to program the car to them anyway.
Jason, Ive seen you countless times on older post, sorry if you feel like your repeating, last post I seen was like 2 years old. Hoping newer ideas have came out, at the very least, module replacement update so its like the 2013s and up. Im sure you can agree its little excessive to be paying more per part for an older car worth less, than a newer one.
Per Jason or anyone reading, black stem
2008-2010 Maserati GranTurismo TPMS Sensor | Huf RDE001 433MHz
is at 79.98 per, cheapest Ive found. I am assuming even if I buy there, I still am stuck doing the 3 hour drive to Maserati to program these to car, these are not plug and play doable at tire shops is it? Is there any equipment etc that can program these to car, at certain repair shops, or is this one of those maserati only. I know you understand what I mean, most my shops can reprogram a lot of stuff, but some cars have a 2nd computer bank that only factory can get into. Few of my porsches had 2ndary banks. Have to forgive me, I have dual doctorates, military engineer, but Im disabled now and my memory is just crap. From what I recall 2ndary banks are something to do with structural I believe, thus depending on what is reprogrammed is if some nicer shops with obd equipment that can do ferrari etc, sometimes can do reprogramming. Im not sure if you know limits, or what I could possible ask for locally.
Anyone reading that has successfully installed cheaper tpms modules, and had luck, or even if anyone has ordered modules, and had them installed at a tire shop and they worked with reset on tpms let me know. I don't mind bending on price for sensors, my shops are 3 hours plus drive round trip, not counting time there, and they just are a pain in the ass to get to even answer their phones anymore to schedule anything. I called about my RH headlight washer lid, even gave both dealerships parts department part number on answering system 80056810; and they cant even return a call in 3 days. Ill probably get it off of scuderia.com. Kinda funny though Jason, I had to drive right at Atlanta GA to get this car, but Im up here about 1.6 hours from Fort Mill Sc Maserati, and no offense, they suck; read reviews. Charlotte Maseratti, I gave information to service guy, and he took 15 minutes to find out what I did in 4 minutes myself; and only found the part once I gave him the LH side part number; and this isn't my speciality. I just don't feel comfortable with these guys. Michs Foreigh Auto in Hickory is close, but they are very limited, and can not program anything.
Thank you gentleman for responses, means a lot few people willing to offer advice.
This is the complete Huf part number RDE001V21 I just did mine got the sensors from Rock auto $59.00ea.
I needed a key, $ 583.00 plus $ 250.00 to program plus need the GT for 3 plus hours, so I contacted the local dealer, multipul times over 2 weeks. They dont even answer the phone in service or reply to the super fancy webpage contact sheet. Finally contacted Maserati off the web. Got a response and a date 2 weeks later for service 3 weeks in the future.

Here's some updates. Went to 3 local bug chain tire dealerships, they all said sensors dead. My buddy finally got home, used his scanner, they showing 70 percent life, and all was on scanner. Understand I just got car, so no idea what's been done or lied about. They stated sensor been going off since they had it. Just because tire scanner reads does not mean right one. Also upon testing it's not really finding ecu module. Please review pics, from what I'm seeing on scans and dash error, this seems like module is bad. I did pull it tonight, spayed the connector pins with contact cleaner, nothing changed once installed. Not sure if there is a reset to make it look for module, or if it's safe to say module is shot. If so I think someone mentioned an updated module for these v1.5. All these cars behave different, so hoping someone knows this.
Also as people post what tps they use on wheels and it worked, please post the year and make. I see people say how easy it is, yet have a 2017 on profile. 2013 on is very user friendly. 08 to 10 is just very finicky. Thank you for support.
Also code on LH external sensor for parking, Im assuming that is the LH driver side bumper one, not the grill one that would is LH as well? Any link to removing these from front is appreciated; seen somewhere much easier than rear, but cant find it anymore.

It looks like you can communicate with the ECU, but you have that fault that won't clear...You'll need a new ECU..There is no version etc..You need that 253 part# on the box...Here is the bad part..Good luck finding one...You can sometimes find them exchange from one of the parts places...The dealer here was selling you one only if they diagnosed the car and it was a special dealer request to Maserati...Just stupid crap IMO.. LH external sensor is just that...You can install one by removing the fender liner.. Jason
