Hi all this is my fist post I have been lurking in the background for some time but thought I could share some information on this one. You are quite correct that RAWS workshops must convert the speedo to KMH on imported vehicles however the need to convert the odometer to read in KM also has been removed since ADR 18/03 was implemented. Converting the odometer to read in KM was a previous requirement of ADR's 18/01 & 18/02 but the current guidelines no longer require this. I suppose most educated purchasers will distinguish between a RAWS imported vehicle compared to a locally delivered car and their respective service records will match the actual reading on the instrument cluster. Hope this sheds a little light on the subject for you guys.

I will take your word that it can be left like that as I can't be bothered ringing around or searching for it.....but to me it tells me that this raws workshop couldn't be bothered doing a full job on it.... especially when every other workshop that I have seen do maserati/ferrari/lamborghinis has converted them.

Oh well good luck with the sale :)
You can say I'm wrong, but my garage doesn't agree with that statement!!!

Can anybody see the problem with this car???

Hint: look at the number plate, the log books and the odometer reading  :doh:

I see the cambelt has been changed though  :tilt:

Minor differences; younger is LE 1 owner as opposed to 2 owner older model (LE??). Not sure if the LE 2007 is the Victory version however the killer IMO is the older car has the techno (carbon) cloth inserts rather than the full leather fit. Has a bearing on price in the UK and seems here as well
Obviously Zags pricing is always inflated - there is a great looking one in Syndey which is another $10k

The LE stands for Limted Edition it was not the MC Victory version.  basically the LE was never sold in Aus and is the run out model before the Grandturismo shape came in. It is fitted with a lot of extra's which you used to have to pay big money for.
Probably the best maserati made to date.
