I have a 2015 Maserati Ghibli S Q4 and I live in Red Bank, New Jersey. I bought my Ghbili used with 11,000 miles from Manheim Auto Auction. At 16,000 miles, my brake pads were down to 10% so I took it to Ray Catena Maserati in Oakhurst NJ. They told me I needed new brakes and rotors and quoted me $2,567 plus tax installed ($423 for front pads, $650 for 2 front rotors, $214 for rear pads, $420 for 2 rear rotors. $860 for labor). I ended up calling local mom and pop shops to see if I could get a better deal. I ran across a shop with great reviews, Mustafa was the owner of the shop and he was able to order OEM Brembo brakes & rotors and have it installed for $2,000 flat with taxes included. I never believed in going to a shop due to the name as I've had bad experiences at chains like Midas and even dealership included, I believe in the mechanic that works on your car and Mustafa has lots of validation through reviews. The brakes run amazing and I'm happy I went to Mustafa. He has even put up pictures of him working on my car for his google search.

Shop details:

Good that you found yourself a decent shop but DIY could have saved you @ least another 1K. I only mention this because knowledge is power :p

Exactly, and replacing the rotors and pads are EASY. There is a DIY article or two on this site and YouTube videos as well.

I have a 2019 Ghibli SQ4 with barely 15K miles on it. I already changed my all tires and now need to change all brake rotors and pads. I have not received the quotation from a Maser dealer but it looks like it would cost $3000... My independent mechanic who works on my Ferrari and other cars quoted me $1800 plus tax. I am going to wait until I get the warning light as I am down to 30%. Dealer's annual oil change was $900 and they did not even wash my car... I am trying to avoid stealership for my brake job. This is my 3rd Maser ( I had an 05 Quattroporte and Spyder both purchased brand new) and the maintenance has become ridiculously higher than before from the dealership. Tires and brakes wear in the speed of light for my car... Is it normal? I did not experience this with my previous Masers..

Do you have a warranty that might void doing DIY? I do. I only paid $1500 for it (negotiated down from 4500 because the dealer made a mistake that almost killed the deal). Small price to pay for 4 years of PoM but it's restricting me from doing some work myself that I would enjoy doing (and save money!).
