I have decided to order a 2006 Quattroporte Sport GT and wanted to ask for some advice from Quattroporte owners ( never owned a Maserati) who would certainly be more knowledgable than I am, before I actually place the order. I have been told that the markup on the car and options is approximately 17% over dealer cost, or working backwards from MSRP, 15% below MSRP ( e.g., Sport GT package, dealer cost is $ 7,500 and MSRP is $ 8,850, Executive GT package, dealer cost is $ 11,190 and MSRP is $ 13,170 ). The base price of the QP is $ 102,200, which means the dealer cost is approximately $ 88,000, or a $ 14,000 markup before adding options. Including options, you're probably looking at a $ 15,000 to $ 17,000 markup. Can anyone comment on how much a dealer will discount from MSRP ? Also, regarding options, has anyone had experience with the Comfort Pack Seats ( Front $ 4,910 , Rear $ 4,995 ) ? My local dealer said they are an incredible waste of money and just order heated front and rear seats. GSM phone kit, does it work well for hands free use ? Also, the picture of the phone looks pretty big when you want to remove it from the car and take it with you. Any insight that can be provided would be sincerely appreciated. Thank you.
