    The GT is the baby brother of the 599.

    It has been great taking to you all - I've never seen another GTS F1 on the road - of course on the country roads where I live its tractors and trucks
    In the local gun shop they used to call me the rick guy on the mountain but now after 15 years its just John

    That's an interesting way to look at it - have fun with yours - I would send you all my sticky buttons but nobody up here to do that
    I can really drive but can't fix s**t

    John - give me a call. I'm sure I can connect you with someone to remove and re-install the parts.

    BTW, for any other interested prospective buyers out there......

    I came across this in my research regarding the cam variator issue --- this is the TSB issued by Maserati.

    Note - at 53k plus miles, my 2008 did not have this issue.

    I don't have the engine number but that doc mentions 2007-2009 so it's a pretty safe bet mine fell into that range. I've been told by techs that a driven car often did not have the issue.

    Unfortunately, I don't have the rest of the document --- the link I found only had the 1st page posted.
