Are you hapy with the car overall and do you still enjoy driving it ?
Looking to purchase a Gransport Coupe 05 or 06 in the next 30 days or so have my eyes on a few.

I have had mine for just about 3 weeks now and I could never imagine not having it. It is to date the best car I own. I would focus on the 06's since the warranties go til 2010.

I've had my '05 for abt. 2 months and am enjoying it. It's a bit quirky and I wouldn't want to depend on it for a daily driver, but it's fun.

I've had my Gransport Spyder for 15 months and do depend on it as my daily driver, 25-50 miles/day. It's a blast.

I have an 05 Gransport and love it. It is a third car and not a daily driver, but I really look forward to the weekend to take it for a spin. I find every excuse possible to take it out of the garage and run errands or play golf (two things I look forward to doing). With the weather here as bad as it has been over the last couple of weeks, I am looking for some break in the clouds to open up the GS on the freshly cleaned streets.

A dream come true- everything I had hoped for-makes me grin every time I start it up and head out for a drive!
Don't agonize - do it!

Sounds like a Mercedes I had towed away last year!

Ouch! One of those infamous Friday production cars or what?

Love It 2005 GS

Best car I have owned, I have put 7K in less then 1yr on the GS, after 28K on my 2002 coupe. I am 50/50 on the daily driver thoughts, not a cheep car to pile on the miles and if your in a lot of traffic it sucks. Even though I am good and working with the CC it's still a pain in the but moving in stop and go traffic. Most of my miles are road trips and back road GT driving...

I should amend my position to say that while you can certainly daily-driver the Maser as I do, a Camry hybrid is a better fit. But life feels too short to live like that.

I've got some bits and bobs to iron-out, but nothing to the degree of the driver-side window just falling down...

I couldn't be happier with mine. And as I tell my wife, if one put a stethoscope to my nuts, one would hear the rumble of my Gransport V8.
