What a fantastic car!

I was a bit sceptical about the exterior (sides) and interior design initially, but I am starting to like it more and more. My interior is black leather with the dark grey fabric, esp. together with carbon inserts it looks just great (and it smells so lovely new...).

The engine sound marvelous (I like it the most when doing parking maneuvers in an underground garage), and the overall feeling creates endorphine poisoning. Maneuvring when parking can be done surprisingly smooth, I am impressed! The chairs are very comfy. Build quality is great, there's no rattling at all.

Only very minor complaints so far:
- car tends to follow imperfections in the road surface (just slightly, might be the P Zero Rosso tires as I've had the same in my former car with the same tires, and it went away after switching to P Zero Nero with the former car).
- The Auditorium sounds good, great clarity, however there's something rattling in the back starting at mid-level sound pressure (I think it is the cover containing the subwoofers behind the rear seats).
- Almost no containments for little things (e.g. music CDs, mobile phone, etc.) in the interior
- The (gorgeous) Maserati watch creates reflections in the front window when the lights are turned on

I am very happy I did it, and can recommend the car to anyone!

It was mentioned at the 2004 Geneva Motor Show that it would be a 2 year production run of 1000 cars. The Singapore dealer here is getting only 4 cars... maybe 5. I'm trying to get the breakdown of LHD and RHD production numbers. What numbers are u hearing?

Which countries in Europe are LH or RHD? The UK is RHD rite?

I just drove my GS about 400km to KL from Singapore. We are here for a big birthday bash in honor of the Singapore Malaysia Ferrari/Maserati Dealership owner. He is 60. All out of town visitors...free stay at the new Hilton Sentral Hotel. What a big gesture by him.

Took the car up to 200kmh...didnt want to push it too hard. Its only got 250km on the clock when I left Singapore. Acceleration is very very good especially at high revs in 4th gear.

Much more stable than the Coupe at high speed. I drove up most of the way in Sports mode.

Leaving at 630am tom to get back to Singapore in time for the F1 race on TV.

Winter tires on Gransport

Have received mine with summer tires, as I thought in March, there would be no more snow...well, I was mistaken.
However, I will only get winter tires in fall. The owner's manual recommends 18 inchers, but I will try to get some which fit on the original 19 inch trofeo wheels, as they are so beautiful. Any idea if there is a tire which will fit (235/30 19 inch in front, 265/30 19 inch in back)?
