Thanks for the quick reply Jason. Yes, I am aware that the Skyhook is electronically controlled dampers -- my comparison to the air suspension is more to the point that sometimes you can't beat a simple mechanical system (e.g. coil-over damper) than add a bunch of finicky electronics/sensors that could end up costing $$$$.People usually don't say that...lol....I would rather have a later car personally...The Skyhook is not air suspension...Just electronic dampeners and fairly relaible...For a motorsports guy and gear head you are gonna want a GTS I would think... Jason
I live outside of Austin with some country roads that have "questionable" ride quality. Thus, having the variable suspension option in the Skyhook would be desirable "if" it's not a money pit. Is the Skyhook system considered generally reliable? (as compared to what might in a similar Mercedes AMG or BWM M sedan) Do you have any guidance on costs of damper replacement and replacement intervals? (40K miles, longer?)No problem....I can't leave the house according to the state.. ..Not really...It is just trim and the suspension etc...The fixed suspension cars do have a rough ride IMO...It is fixed and it is stiff...Skyhook cars ride much better if you care about stuff like that...J
Thanks.You don't normally replace the shocks...They are German and of high quality...Most of the issues are with the skyhook ECU that fails occasionally....Jason
Ok. What are you looking for? I simply gave you my experience with manufactures....You are aware people can disagree and it's not a total diss or disrespect? Your little rant is way off and all this WRONG shit is funny...Any time you want to answer hundreds of questions and get PMs from people about a Maserati then do it..Please don't ask me a question again...I got nothing for ya....And I sincerely apologize for not being right 100% of the time..As far as you points.
1.) I gave you an honest assessment...Apparently you disagree..
2.) Never proved wrong...Some BS Youtube video...I work with scan tools and ECUs everyday.. I would have to see it..
3.)I forget this one, but I'm pretty sure you were asking me and me not asking you?
As far as my tone..I'm pretty cool with everyone...I'm a direct no BS person..It has worked well for me...I'm pretty polite on ML until people comes sideways at me....Regards..Jason
Better there than a row house in South Philly!!!!!!I think it is absolutely hilarious that Maserati issues a bulletin to inform all the dealers to address the most widespread mechanical fault in Maserati history by sending the parts to a 1500 square foot private home in rural NJ.
