Nah that place has moved to Elizabeth street in waterloo now and they are my last resort for repairs if I have a choice, they are way overpriced, their mechanics scratched my Maserati, they have aprentices working on half a million dollar cars (there was a PR article in some of the southern suburbs papers last week about it), and there fkn arrogant.

Anyone know any Good private Ferrari/Maserati mechanics in Sydney?

Yes, take your Maserati to Vaucluse Auto Repairs and ask for Miguel. I often tried finding solutions myself first through Maserati forum UK and then getting it done by Miguel. Hid did my Rad, clutch slave cylinder and window actuators for a massive saving over the dealer. A friend with another Maser first recommended them.

Mate of mine took my 4200 for a couple of days, told me he did 160kph in 3rd on the freeway on ramp, he didnt realise how fast he was going, thing is it's only supposed to do 147 in 3rd  :eek:

1st: 72 km/h/ 44.7 mph.

2nd: 110 km/h/ 68.4 mph.

3rd: 147 km/h/ 91.4 mph.

4th: 187 km/h/ 116.2 mph.

5th: 230 km/h/ 142.9 mph.

Speedo slightly out ? My car is 10% out at that speed.

Could be.
The on ramp is downhill and the car accelerates fast as it is so he could have pipped 160 I guess, would have been in sport mode as that keeps the rev limiter at 7500 I know he wouldn't have gone into the red.

Probably the speedo :scratchchin:

No he's about my best mate and he can drive too otherwise I wouldn't have let him have it.

I'm tempted to take it up a bit in 3rd and see how much is there but I'd get caught, this wasnt just any on ramp it was a particularly long one.

not that we condone speeding.... but if the limmit is 110 and our super cars can do 300ish, then shouldn't these cars be allowed to go a little over the speed limmit (considering the limmit is in place taking into account the worse drivers on night/rainy conditions in average cars) Think about it  :doh:

Having said that a kia rio had no probs @ 170, it just needed 3 states to reach that speed and then the brakes melted  :doh:

If I go half the speed limit from now untill Wednesday I should have built up enough credits to go 160 on Thursday. I hope the magistrate understands my logic :D
