You need to discuss the cars history with Mario, for him to work out what service is needed, and any other jobs that have cropped up.

Ok I will try and make this very basic.....

If a car is due for its 90 thousand Service, Belts, water pump etc.....including oil and filter.....

Assuming nothing else is wrong, how much would one of these services cost?

well, to be basic, a water pump is not part of any service.

and does it need tappets adjusted? When were they last done?

Often you see, these things are done out of schedule, and maybe you're happy to re do things that aren't due, but maybe you'd like considered advice.

But, as an FYI,  amajor, with water pump and with tappets etc, and with typical other things that crop up, will likely end up being around 40 hours of labour and another $2k in parts

or there abouts...

Getting away from servicing a Maserati,can anyone recommend an auto electrician to install a reverse camera to an existing dash navigation screen in a Maserati Granturismo. I am a little nervous because i had asked a guy installing a camera and he said he wouldn't do it.

Doesn't sound possible unless there is a connection built into the navigation system for a camera and the software is written to accept a camera as well. The only way you could probably do it is if the screen was separate to the navigation hardware and you could switch it from nav to reversing. Which is unlikely.

Post the video, I have a friend who is an electronics engineer that might do it for you, he was and R&D guy for Codan before going into his own business doing other things. A regular installer might be too scared of damaging your factory Nav system.

Adelaide is probably too small to have an auto electrical business that is as advanced as those guys but you could call these guys and have a chat. They seem to think theyre pretty good.
