I appreciate the insight @ErikDiSomma ... and the "collusion" concern @M&MM... and the moderation attention @mods -- thanks. I usually trust my gut but it's such a beautiful car. Sometimes beauty gets me into trouble I'm going to see a 2008 Sport GTS tomorrow (unknown Carproof/Carfax at this time) -- Alcantara! I will report back.

It's quite re-assuring knowing that I've got this incredible resource to bounce questions and ideas off of. Thanks Maserati Life, its contributors, and moderators. Truly appreciated!

This is a great and very valuable website and I would never want to see it tainted.
I've called out businesses that don't identify themselves before and dealing with different IP addresses is usually pretty easy to spot. We can't be everywhere all the time, but we try to keep this a nice place to hang out

What happened to your post happens every now and then to new members and even to others on occasion. The software behind the forum kicks them into moderation and then we approve them. Very easy and I fix one or two every week or so. There are many more that it catches that the user needs to be (and is) banned for spamming. That's why the algorithm is there.
This. In spades. I agree that just because you're not paranoid, it does not mean the world isn't out to get you, but there are limits.

Dave, how did you release that post? I couldn't see anything to let me.
