  1. POLL: How a man's car should sound ?

    Modern Maserati
    I did a blind test and voted for the Maserati. The 2nd vehicle sounded like it was trying too hard.
  2. When your wife has a faster car....

    Modern Maserati
    My wife drives an '06 e55 wagon & loves it. I don't mind that her car is faster than mine. Hers may be faster, but mine is a more involving drive. At least that's how I justify it. In the meantime, I've got a 997 GT3 coming in February along with several other 4-wheeled mistresses that my wife...

    Modern Maserati
    ...and no tickets. We had a great time. Thanks for putting it all together and showing up. We met some wonderful people and look forward to the next one. These are some incredible vehicles. Did anybody get photographs?

    Moderators - please delete the previous multiple posts. Just trying to get a tally of who and what will be in attendance on the June 10th drive.
  5. NorCal get together for Maserati

    I could go for a Napa rally in mid may.
  6. Buying a Maserati does not guarantee you got taste.

  7. QP first impressions

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    Isn't this the same as putting it in manual and not shifting out of 1st?
  8. What does throttle "blip" mean?

    Modern Maserati
    Unfortunately, they also don't teach paying attention to the surrounding traffic. Seriously. Now, back to our topic.... http://www.turnfast.com/tech_driving/driving_heeltoe.shtml
  9. QP question: how well does the cooling function of Comfort Seats work?

    Modern Maserati
    It prevents sweaty back, but not it as not as powerful as Mercedes' cooled seats. Get the comfort seats. You won't be penalized for it.
  10. About to order my Quattroporte - Need Advice! (Jan'06)

    QP5 2003-2012
    Spray the brakes with water under fairly strong pressure (not a pressure washer). The brake dust collects and causes the squeal, and this will fix it. All of my cars with high performance brakes have done that, and they have all been remedied with this fix (assuming you still have decent life...
  11. Quattroporte Sport Delivered

    QP5 2003-2012
    The exterior is Nero Carbonio. As for the Gatorade, I waited until I got TO the gym to drink it. I know better than to drink and drive
  12. Quattroporte Sport Delivered

    QP5 2003-2012
    Definitely go with the black dashboard and steering wheel. I have the Cuolo Sella leather with black piping and stitching, along with black carpets and beige ultrasuede headliner. I would recommend contrasting piping and stitching. It looks incredible.
  13. Quattroporte vs XJR vs RS6

    QP5 2003-2012
    I had an RS6 and replaced it with the QP The QP doesn't have the power the RS6 has, but it is a much more enjoyable "big car" to drive and own. When driven enthusiastlically, neither have the seats to support you. I will agree, although the QP has a great engine, it feels anemic and could use a...

  15. coupe or clk55

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    I've got a Merc E55 wagon (wife's car) & a Maserati QP. The Merc is fun, but the Maserati is irresistable. I use the QP as a daily driver.
