    BMW Supra

    I have been watching some of the YouTube reviews on the new "Toyota" Supra (BMW Z4) and I feel as though it is a total cop out marketing exercise. It seems to me that it's basically an attempt to sell more BMW Z4 Coupe's (Aka The Shoe) with a Toyota badge twinned with an iconic model name...

    FiFTY's Manual 4200 Build

    Hey all, I was recalling previous forum experiences and thought it would be fun to create a "build" thread on my Model Year 2003 Maserati Coupe 4.2 GT in 6 speed manual guise (4200 as we all know it). OK this thread is three years late so perhaps you can consider it a detailed three year...

    Lumbar support

    The passenger seat in my 4200 has a busted lumbar support. I can hear the motor working away when I push the switch to raise or lower it however the lumbar support does not push out of the seat into ones back. Slightly annoying! I have tried the reset procedure many times but it does not...

    Alloys again

    Morning people I dropped my car off to a well renowned alloy wheel repair shop who have helped me out in the past - they are very good - so they should be in Guildford where the roads are crumbling into the pot holes. I was told by a garage that I may have a few buckles - one of which I can...

I have...

    Cordless Impact Wrench - Worth it?

    I am tempted to buy a cordless impact wrench to add to my expanding tool box.

    Maserati 4200 Water Radiator
