    Italian road trip ideas?

    What’s the point in having a continent crossing Maserati grand tourer and then, when the opportunity comes along, using the plane instead?

    Another would you rather: GranSport or tastefully modified manual 4200?

    You must have been driving a very badly set up 4200/GS. Every GS with a CC box I’ve owned has been significantly faster to change gear than any manual, and once you learn how to manage the gear change, there is no “clunkiness” either......

    Be honest please.

    Yes I did, but don’t see the relevance of an an arbitrary number like £1m. Affordability of a mortgage in retirement is a factor of retirement income compared to mortgage monthly payment and other outgoing. The mortgage monthly payment can vary substantially based on many factors, of which the...

    Anyone know this car? Newbie looking for a GTS

    That a very nice looking GTS at that mileage for that money. Looks well serviced too and, if variators done, could be a very good buy

    Be honest please.

    N Not really if you have a decent guaranteed personal or corporate pension in retirement. Like this whole thread, it’s all about individual circumstances. You can’t make blanket rules.

    Which one 4200 GS Spyder or Stradale for £50K

    I’m guessing you mean in the last 20 years? Personally, I’d put the MC Victory up there with it and even the Gransport. But I’d also say that a Strad doesn’t get close to an original Ghibli or a 3500/5000 GT in the desireability stakes when considering the entire Maserati back catalogue.

    Amazing... what could be more perfect for your Ghibli?!!!

    Why so rude to this poor bloke? This is a Maserati forum isn’t it? And he owns a Maserati doesn’t he? You couldn’t have made him feel much less welcome if you’d tried.....

    Is the damaged Ghibli a diesel. Nothing against diesel Ghibli or Levantes, but the petrol cars are a pretty different drive and make a very decent noise. If 4 doors aren’t essential, what about a Granturismo?

    Great looking car in a lovely setting. What is going to replace her?

    It’s an “interesting” colourway.........

    Marios the magician and a sorted F1 box

    I suspect badly set up gearboxes are to blame for a lot of the negativity out there about gear changes on the CC and MC Shift cars. As Ryandoc says, properly set up they’re a dream........

    New car offers

    When you park it, try to hide what model it is. A policeman mate said they are the most stolen to order/for a heist car at the moment.
