  1. Maserati Discontinuing GranTurismo in 2020? Implications?

    GranTurismo
    So whatever they end up producing , will the Maserati’s competition be the new McLaren GT ? :unsure: A $ 210 K super car McLaren labels as a “ touring “ automobile but it still has just 2 seats , with an extra storage space for a couple of overnight bags..situated right on top of a very hot...
  2. speedometer different layout

    GranTurismo
    Is this the MC one ? I like the lighting display, but not crazy about the plain black and white daytime look of the panel. But then again I have a blue GT, so I love my blue dial instrumentation 🙂
  3. GTS 4.7 Trunk Struts ......Lift-O-Mat

    GranTurismo
    That’s a video I’d like to see as well , and if indeed there are struts / lifters that make the GTS trunk “ spring open all the way “ I’m definitely in the market for a set . But given the welght of our trunk lid I’m afraid this is the only hydraulic cylinder which might work ..
  4. Maserati Discontinuing GranTurismo in 2020? Implications?

    GranTurismo
    True, but on the other side of the coin I think in the current political climate the mere mention of a name or party can easily take the conversation on a tangent discussion and then it' usually though to get back to the actual spirit of the topic itself. Fortunately I think most ( if not...
  5. Black wheel craze

    GranTurismo
    I never paid attention to this but supposedly black wheels LOOK smaller than lighter color wheels . ( not talking about Todd’s car photo in the above post, although the wheels do look smaller than 20” ones .. are they ? ). I mean, in general the visual effect of dark wheels , at least in...
  6. Black wheel craze

    GranTurismo
    Beautiful !! ( also love the house behind it and the steeet as well ; looks like a very fitting neighborhood for a spectacular car like this 🙂 )
  7. Black wheel craze

    GranTurismo
    Error, sorry - see following post .
  8. Full manual transmission

    GranTurismo
    I could be wrong, but I’ll take a wild guess here ; although it’s likely someone can install a full manual transmission in your GT and the car will probably function and run ok, many of the ECU functions will not respond anymore .. doubtful the ECU can be reprogrammed to recognize a totally...
  9. Full manual transmission

    GranTurismo
    IMO, not in a big, heavy , luxurious, touring car. Great for sports cars.
  10. Refurbishing MC Centenario Wheels

    GranTurismo
    True ! Unfortunately not in CA where a single drop of mist on the road surface sends many drivers info panic and confusion .
  11. Refurbishing MC Centenario Wheels

    GranTurismo
    In many cases not driving in the rain or snow is not necessarily directly related to concerns about the effects on your cars from water , or , from salt poured on the roads to melt the ice, but rather, caution about morons at the wheel who drive some crap-mobile and / or those who haven’t a...
  12. Maserati Discontinuing GranTurismo in 2020? Implications?

    GranTurismo
    On a related note, there is legislation on the table in almost every state to charge ( no pun intended ;) ) EV cars owners fees which are much higher than what gasoline cars owners pay on average for road use and infrastructure improvement taxes as part of the per gallon surcharges at the pump...
  13. Recommendation for brake pads

    GranTurismo
    It’s always recommended to go through a hard braking, soft braking , braking from high speed , etc. routine within the first couple of minutes of installing new brakes.
  14. Sticky Buttons and Interior Finishes

    GranTurismo
    Ever since the first time I read about this flaw , I made a point of pushing the outer edge of the buttons, which I realize won't do anything to stop the eventual sticky problem, but I'm thinking the least amount of contact my fingers make with the white writing /symbols on the buttons will at...
  15. Wiper blades

    GranTurismo
    Well, I went for the easiest to install ( as I understood it , perhaps incorrectly ) never factored in the price , but they just happened to be cheap .. from what I read just about every other after market blade needs some retrofit mod, and that it can be a bit of a pain as a DIY job. $ 50 or $...
  16. Wiper blades

    GranTurismo
    I posted this in the general Maserati care & detail sub-forum on another wiper blades thread there, but this may be more of a technical topic than it is cosmetic, and specific to the GTs, so I’ll repost it here .. My blades are starting to deteriorate, leaving streaks and one even has a small...
  17. Maserati Discontinuing GranTurismo in 2020? Implications?

    GranTurismo
    Not even if it was free ! I’m not kidding .
  18. SF Bay Area meeting anyone ?

    GranTurismo
    9/15 works for me as well. I still think Rob’s ( BritMaz ) suggestion is tops ; Suggestion: 1) Meet at my house say 10 am in Woodside, (Woodside exit HW84 off 280) for medicinal and restorative Mimosa’s. 2) Drive up the 84 to Skyline. Alice’s is at this intersection and good for looking/being...
  19. Maserati Discontinuing GranTurismo in 2020? Implications?

    GranTurismo
    There’s one exception in that list.. a big one ; the Jeep Grand Cherokee . Not only rated by just about every automobile publication at the very top of reliability and multi point driving features charts, but it’s been listed by Consumer Reports for two or three consecutive years , out of...
  20. Recommendation for brake pads

    GranTurismo
    True, you get used to brake dust even though it's not something you want to see and clean all the time. I presume it does not show on black or dark graphite wheels, but I don't like those ( just personal preference ) so I suppose that means I can't have my cake and eat it too ...
