    Had a chat with a bloke who had a white diesel Ghibli outside M&S in Moortown in Leeds on Sunday evening.

    He bought it for his wife about 4 months ago and a few of his mates had QP VIs. He wasn't smitten and said one of his pals described Maserati ownership as the difference between a ball point pen and a fountain pen. The ball point does what you want all the time - you pick it up, it writes - whereas the fountain pen smudges, you get ink on your fingers, the odd blot but overall its just nicer! Thought that was a great analogy.

    I love fountain pens and can't write properly (comfortably, legibly or elegantly) with ball points. The latter require the application of pressure to the page whereas with a real pen my hands glides. I think this analogy still holds well to driving a Maserati!
