    Just an observation, we dont get that many visitors from over the pond but lately, there have been a lot of our American cousins contributing.

    Is there any reason for this?....is all well with MaseratiLife forum in the US?

    2011 Maserati Stradale, 1969 Opel GT. 2015 Audi Q3 (daily workhorse)

    Perhaps with Brexit they're not pigeon holing us Brits with that lot over the English Channel who the Americans don't get on with.
    Gran Turismo Sport MC Shift in Blu Oceano/Nettuno one of them!

    Previous Italian Mistresses
    Maserati 4200 in Grigio Nuvolari
    Alfa Romeo GT 1.9 JTDM in Nero

    I think it's Frenchie who doesn't get on with Americans. The sceptics I know just laugh at them - they think they're all .... how best to put this ... French:

    Don't get me wrong - I very much enjoy France and I consider myself very fortunate to have a number of friends there.
    But if my friends in the US are typical, and I suspect they are, I understand their point of view too.

    All is as well as it ever was. However there may be a moderator suggesting that better answers might be found on SportsMaserati. Primarily when the questor is UK based, but others clearly read the posts......

    I just got back from nearly three weeks in San Francisco and hardly saw any Maserati cars whilst there - a QP and a couple of Ghibli's. Amazing that a search for GranSport in Auto Trader showed only 7 cars for sale in California. All above 45k miles.
    Poor ads with no description of service history, clutch life/clutch change etc.

    Prices were low (c$28k-$30k). No idea why......

    Didn't check prices for GT or QP.

    At a social get-together some guys were curious about my GS and knew very little about this model.
    Contrast that to the Porsche - they all knew the model and excited to talk about it and knowledgeable (they knew what an X50 factory option was).
    Current Week-End Pleasure:
    Porsche 996 Turbo with factory X50 option running larger K24 turbos and GT2 Intercoolers as standard. 6-speed Manual.
    "once bitten, forever smitten".

    2007 Maserati Gran Sport LE. A different kind of driving experience in sport mode.

    Never really bothered much with ML or MF as all you could ever need in the Maserati World is here under one roof.
