As an owner of some 10 or 11 Bimmers throughout my life, I can say with certainty that my Masi Granturismo is probably the most fun to drive over any of my bimmers! (M5 and an M6 included). Not to be confused with the fastest, as my M6 was wicked fast!!! But the most FUN, yes.
Anyone can make a car fast, just depends on how much money you're willing to shell out. But "fun factor" to me, is way harder to purchase. Obviously just my opinion.


In the last 25,000 miles all I have done to the Masi is gassed it up, changed the oil 3 times, and put on a new set of tires!


On a side note, I have seen about 10 of those Merc's in the past week, and only 1 Masi, just saying..... And oh yeah, WELCOME!

The newer cars hold up extremely well...They do wear some brakes and they can get slightly pricey, but overall a nice car without a lot of problems...I would want a SQ4 Ghibli if I had a choice....The V6 is pretty powerful and can spin the tires on 2wd drive models at 50 mph when wet outside..Not my thing...Jason

That Qporte is way cooler than an E300. Actually that is one amazing Maserati for the price. If I were looking at a used sedan at that price the Qporte would be at the top of the list. A lot of car for the money and style like no other competing sedan. Good luck!

Welcome.

I think the car you found on cars.com is too much $ for that many miles, though.
It looks like a dealer. I've see better private deals on craigslist.com all the time
where I live near Philly. I'd say keep looking before you pull the trigger.

I bought a 2006 QP with only 16k miles for $25,000. And, it had several
important upgrades from Formula Dynamics. Body and interior were mint
condition.

They're out there.
