    Wow. That's terrible. I am going to guess that a hose connection let go or a drain plug came out. None of which are big deals. Of course, keep use posted.

    Only one hour for them to get a flat bed to your car? At least that shows Maserati comitment to giving the great service they are promising. Get the Tubi, I went in last week to hear one and the second he revved the engine I told him throw one on my car when it comes in. The sound was awsome, it blew me away. Sounded at least as good if not better than any ferrari I have heard.

    FMoW is a great place.

    I'd also highly recommend the tubi, we have it on our '02 coupe.

    Did you used to race Porsches, by any chance? "Ciao baby" is familiar.

    Cheers.

    Did not race Porsches, had a couple though the only car I currently track at all is my viper coupe. Ironically I traded in our 996 cab for the Maserati.
    Porsche had 40k mile no problems besides need for frequent wheel alignments :). Maser has much more spirit but at least for me I fear that it may not be mechanically as reliable as some of my German cars where.
    Thanks

    Sorry to hear about your problem with the Spyder, but I'm sure the guys at FoW will take care of you good. A good friend of mine used to be a tech there until he found a tech job at MB closer to home. Just out of curiosity does your Spyder happen to be yellow? I passed a yellow/black Maser Spyder on River Road (near Potomac & Chevy Chase) a few weeks back going south toward DC, but I had to turn before I could get a better look at it. Best wishes in sorting your car out :)

    Nope, our SPyder is dark blue,so far FOW seems to be taken pretty good care of this unfortunate situation, I will look foward to meeting some of the local car buffs as soon as there is a local track event, anyone for a FATT at SP??

    So what was the problem that caused the purging of coolant?

    What do you think of the Tubi sound?
