OK, I am new to the Maserati world, but my previous ride was a Ferrari 360 Spider. So I can tell you all baout the good and bad that comes with an exotic.
Do you live in an affluent area? That helps alot in how people will react. I love in Orange County, CA, so exotics are a dime a dozen here.
I have had a lot of great experiences, and several not so great. I had a cup of Soda thrown in my 'Rari with the top down once. It was a truck full of guys passing by. Not much I could do. Somehow by act of god, the lid stayed on! So joke was on them.
I have also come out to my car parked and spit on, several times. It comes with the territory.
With all that said, I also have had kids ask to sit in it and start crying from joy because I made their day! Once the kid even had Ferrari shoes on, he was a true fan!
So if you are buying to "Flex" on people, you certainly will. But remember it can go both ways. I'm not as young as you, and congrats on being so successful at young age. But remember to stay humble and know that attention will come, good or bad.
