Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I try to download the data in Maperitive. I download successfully but the maps are missing bits that are in the online version. Why is this? it is really annoying. I have tried to download from the website which fails when importing into Maperitive, so i have to use the built in feature to work.

Maperitive uses a different map style than the map on www.openstreetmap.org; therefore it is possible that while the data is actually downloaded, it is just not shown by Maperitive. You can fix that by modifying the Maperitive rendering rules.

Other explanations are possible but a lot less likely - (1) the data you see in the online map might have been deleted meanwhile, and you're just seeing an older image, or (2) the data you see in the online map might be relatively new, and the database from which Maperitive loads the data might lag behind the master database.
