Ben at Wheels Boutique is great, I bought many sets of wheels from them and I never encounter any fitment issue and always took care of whatever came up.

I had a chance to snap a picture of the high flow cats and the Larini X pipe.

I had a chance to counterbalance the car and surprisingly it is just about 300 lbs lighter from the OEM setup. I am sight, never expected this much of a weight reduction.

Car looks just like I assumed it would based on what I saw for detail in your first few posts. Where did you get the front splitter? I'm certainly a fan!

Maserati GranTurismo S MC SportLine Bianco over Nero
Lamborghini Gallardo Gated Spyder Arancio Borealis
Ferrari F430 F1 Rosso over Nero (sold)
Maserati GranTurismo Nero Carbonio over Cuoio (sold)

I got it from a company called APR Performance, they should be offering to the public now that I did the R&D on it. Thanks.

I am going to do a track event first to see how she behaves out there; the wing would come later. Mind I am looking at a 70" wing so it would be really big...

As far as I can see this is the OEM supplier. It is high temp - two part epoxy in the official Brembo red. I have ordered a set to touch up a chip on one of my calipers.
Some Feedback: got this paint and applied it. PERFECT match. Exact same colour and I would bet it is the same paint used by Brembo. Its a two part epoxy too, so should be hard and last.

Very fascinating read following this project.
Regarding 'sticky buttons': I currently have a Ghibli and will buy a 2013+ GTS very soon. No button issues on my 2014 Ghibli. But why not use electrical contact cleaner in or on the sticky buttons. Is the stickiness inside the buttons or just on the button surface?

2014 GTS Rosso Mondiale and black-red stitching interior. Factory "fixed rate suspension" with MC shocks.

The sticky is superficial not inside the mechanical or electrical mechanism of the bottoms, those are usually very high quality. What deteriorates is the very last cote of transparent acrylic applied on top of the bottoms for a comfortable look and feel, with heat, sun exposure, humidity it softens, melts that cote. Once you remove that cote the bottoms are naked more vulnerable to scratching, ideally a transparent cote of clear once they are clean is recommended but not always possible as the new clear may react with the residues.

A bit of an update, I added a fire extinguisher to the passenger side floorboard and Maserati shields to the seats. Also currently working on custom rear control arms to be able to further adjust the camber; a common problem on lower GranTurismos.

Just because I love Maserati owners, I thought I'd let you know that if you ever needed to swap your Granturismo for mine, I'd be ok wit that. Just out of the pure goodness of my heart.
