gggs,have taken delivery of my gransport at last,i went for black with full tan leather interior,no technical cloth.if any one out there is about to spec their car its an option i would strongly reccomend it looks great.
bimbo,i can assure you that i have a nice shiny black gransport in my garage with a full tan leather interior,includig the roof with none of the tacky technical cloth.was that not an option in your country.saemus
any one else out there ordered their gransport with no technical cloth and full leather interior,just taken delivery of mine and it looks fantastic,dont know why they spoiled an otherwise brilliant car with that horrible cloth interior.saemus
Your car was supplied by a British dealer wasn't it?
Look forward to seeing the pics - it must be very handsome. I requested full leather at the outset, and my dealer asked me to give him a few days to check whether or not this was possible on a GranSport.
He came back to me with the following reply:
"No, the GranSport is a limited edition, and they are all being produced with the new technical fabric."
As a matter of interest, when did you order yours? My order was confirmed in October, but I was unable to get a full options list even then. What a shambles!
ian,my car was supplied by meridien modena in lyndhurst i ordered it in september of last year. first saw the car at the factory in june & was told by the dealer then that it was available with full leather.saemus
I wish I couldn't believe it either, but it's fact. I even went through the leather samples with the dealer and told him exactly what I wanted, but it had no effect.
I put this down to misinformation on the part of F/M UK - not to my dealer's unwillingness. F/M UK wouldn't want the complication because it's far easier for them to stick to the 'standard' colour combinations and get the cars shifted as fast as possible.
seamus was lucky. He dealt with the dealer who was the Maserati importer before the F/M tie-up (I think that's true), and they naturally know their way around the Maserati world far better than the other dealers. Doesn't make me any happier though - I'm thoroughly put off and disappointed.
