Well hello, my names justice, and i currently own an E46 m3. I love the twistys and drive my cars how they were meant to be driven. I love the maserati coupes and am currently in the market for one.

few questions... top gear reported the handeling at the limit.... psychotic. not sure what that means but was it sorted out in the 2004 models? I want a 6 speed which i understand is rare and i like the pre 05 gauges.

now is there a difference.... hmm basicly un-psychotic aftermarket skyhook springs combo out there? I really like these cars and would love to join your family. i just dont want to rely on traction controll in order to stay on the track....

thanks in advance !

The handling of the GranSport is quite a lot better than standard Coupes. If you can afford it, I'd get a GS, you will love it :)

so does that make it more GS like? problem with the grandsport is it only comes in CC right? i would really like to have a 6 speed. it took me a year to find my LSB m3 with black interior and a 6 sp.

Our springs will allow the car to handle much better than a stock GS. The GS only handles a small amount better than a standard coupe. If you want the manual trans it needs to be a non GS model. Just be sure to get the skyhook option it's worth it and will allow you to upgrade the springs if you want.

Unfortunately the stock Coupe and GranSport left much to be desired in the handling department. We have a good fix for street cars and even a special track spring available for those who really want to go for it.

in anycase thanks for the imput. now just to find the right car...
