Hi,

Does anyone have any knowledge of this '05 CC coupe for sale on Ebay? Looks like it needs new rear tires, probably the 18,000 mile service, and maybe a new clutch. So figure about $5-6K for all that right?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Mase...016QQitemZ260233545721QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW

Test drove a new '06 CC coupe at my local dealer recently....really a blast to drive. They're just down the street from us, about five blocks away, and have 28 Masers in inventory! Seems to be a strong buyer's market right now. So far the salesman is down to $74K on the '06...it's got a punched warranty.

Thanks,
Perry J.

Have had a number of P- cars in 46 years of driving. Own two now.

I thought they were typos. Who sits on new cars for two years with the warranty ticking?
It's the world's largest RR dealer. Bentleys and RR's are as plentiful around Palm Springs as MB is elsewhere. They've got all of their new Astons parked together on a small lot next to a furniture store so I go over there sometimes and drool.:D

While I was there for the Maser test drive a busty blond (some billionaire's trophy wife we suspect) driving a knockout '08 Bentley Azure came in and snapped up a black '08 QP. Just like that. You had to have been there. A very California moment!

I guess the dealer gets a kickback from MNA if they punch the warranty early. Would be interesting to find out how much they get.

I'm focusing on the '05s....vintage CC coupe. I like the ball polished 7 spoke wheels better than the stock alloys on the '06s for one thing. Plus I figure the '05s will be down in the $40-45K range fairly soon. Also, The WAF is not too good right now. She said yesterday..." Sure, you can get that Maserati.......if you sell the two Porsches."

[Old Chinese proverb: He who knows patience knows peace!]

Isn't that 4.2 L V8 the most beautiful engine you've ever seen? I can visualize myself sneaking out to the garage to pop the hood and gaze at it for an hour or two. The colors, the layout, the crinkle paint. And that exhaust note........wild thing you make my heart sing!:D

I love the look of the vintage pack too but I also love the sound of the GS exhaust. Looking for a spyder I have so few choices so I will just have to take what I find.
That black '05 GS GT for sale in San Antonio sounds pretty good. You going to have a look? Low miles!

Yeah, that car is a bit of a stripper. My 05 vintage had a $105k MSRP, so this one must be well under $100k MSRP.

I would budget:
18000 service, $1800
rear tires, $900
clutch $2750

ish.

Seems like a good purchase price, but...

Alabama, I would want to look for water damage.... get a full carfax. I'd also get a pre delivery inspection from a Maserati dealer if you can swing it.

Also, the brake rotors look a little grooved. My car has about the same mileage and my rotors look brand new.
Thanks for the info Glenn! The carfax looks pretty good on this one. It's a one owner corporate lease return purchased originally at the Maserati dealer in Coral Gables, FL and serviced there as well. Last recommended routine service was at 16,076 so it may not need the 18,000. Warranty has another year to go. The seller picked it up at auction. Wonder what a dealer or indie shop charges for a PPI on one of these?
