  1. QP Sport GTS...Gay or Straight?

    QP5 2003-2012
    it's good to be gay ;-) Oh yes definitely gay. You have to look at this in a context, where anyone who is not into acting like a lout, visiting strip joints, hunting animals or collecting guns, has manners, speaks with clarity with a vocabulary extending beyond 200 words, wears a jacket and a...
  2. What was your previous car - or current daily driver?

    QP5 2003-2012
    Never cry. You (obviously) had the money and you bought something you have enjoyed for a long time and will continue to enjoy. It (again obviously) appeared to be a good idea at the time. It is not as if you bought an engagement ring for the woman of your dreams who you found [email protected] the...
  3. I know what I want: a Bora

    Vintage Maserati
    Hey look who's here! Always enjoy a look at ivan's website.
  4. Quattroporte 5-speed

    Vintage Maserati
    There is somebody who imports 5 speed QPIIIs from italy. It was mentioned on this board some time ago (AFAIR). May be the cheaper route than to do the conversion.
  5. Radar Detector

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    v1 has a very long reach. It is very good. I have a passport srx in my jag xjr. It is the older top of the line unit with laser diffuser also. It is a nice unit that at one time you could only get dealer installed for $1500 or so. I do miss the arrows when I do not use the V1. I am usually too...
  6. A first for me

    Modern Maserati
    You are living my dream! Only I would get one 4200gt for the stick shift
  7. H wants to know how to make it faster

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    Speed is a very relative experience. On a twisting road 40mph in a poorly sprung Dodge Dart may be hair rasing. On a flat out straight 140mph in an AMG Mercedes may feel like nothing. If pure speed or the sensation thereof is your husband's main thrill I would suggest a japanese motorcycle. Most...
  8. New Quattroporte Centurion

    QP5 2003-2012
    I find this kind of cosmetic special editions silly. A bit like the Linconl MKIV/V Givenchy editions.
  9. How to Drive a Maserati...?

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    All the more evidence that the CC should be driven like a true manual. it is what I do in manual shift cars.
  10. How to Drive a Maserati...?

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    And do not worry about the resale value ;-)
  11. Looking for a 06 GS

    Modern Maserati
    Stephen please read up on these cars, just plough through a few threads on this forum. Otherwise you will just end up disappointed. I don't find what I read on the maintenance very dispiriting regarding owner costs, but then again I just had my old Jag XJR in the shop with an ABS failure. Is...
  12. $28k for a Spyder?

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    Michael, how does your XK compare to your DB9s?
  13. Hardwired radar detector? Recommendations for a good radar?

    Driver's Lounge
    I have this one http://cgi.ebay.com/ESCORT-PASSPORT-SRX-Radar-Detector-w-ZR4-Laser-Shifters_W0QQitemZ350148807023QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item350148807023&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1234%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A2%7C240%3A1318 in my XJR. It works great. It may have...
  14. $28k for a Spyder?

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    I'll do you one better. The cars were designed by the same guy, Ian Callum, did the DB7 and the Vantage V12, and afaik the DB9 and the V8 vantage also, then came to Jaguar and did the XK. The XK is actually a very good looking car, one of these that has to be seen inthe flesh to be appreciated...
  15. Debating on buying a Quattroporte....

    QP5 2003-2012
    Somewhat like: shall I date a woman or a man?
  16. $28k for a Spyder?

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    Then again, selling to someone you know may also end up to be a complete pain in the rear end. Disappointed acquaintances and friends - often unreasonably so - can be a real pain. "hey you never told me about that 1mm scratch on the wheel arch... " Ragtop Jag XK?
  17. My impressions after driving QP in snow/ice storm

    Modern Maserati
    Heh heh. I drive a 97 Jag XJR that according to the self-appointed cognoscenti is just about the worst car for snow, with a rear wheel drive and a high output engine. I put Michelin Alpine Sports tyres on it and have perfect grip. The tyres chew through heaps of snow, ice and mud, and the car...
  18. Fogged windshield/ coolant smell?

    Modern Maserati
    Interesting thought, and an occurrence to remember. However, as you describe in your previous message that you notice it in the cold weather, which is when you turn your heater on, and therefore allow hot coolant to circulate through your heater core, my money would still be on the heater core...
  19. Fogged windshield/ coolant smell?

    Modern Maserati
    Sounds like a leaking heater core to me.
  20. yellow gransport? in person how do they look?

    Coupe, Spyder, GS
    Here is another one for the yellow car (non-)appreciation thread...
