    Polar Silver. I know the red GTS 5spd - it's a 1992 Model Year - a stunning car - it's back in a magazine at the moment...

    My car's Bio - brilliant! The 928 S4 isn't an SE - but it's a very strange beast none-the-less. It was ordered in 1989 Model Year when the owner was told about the upcoming GT (also introduced in 1989) - the buyer wanted to order a GT but was then told he would have to wait for his allocation -...

    Always loved Italian cars and Maserati in particular - whispering quietly, but very few Ferraris ever did it for me... However, the practical me never allowed the "plunge" with my heart needed for a Maserati Ghibli Cup back in 2001 - hence Porsches and ///M cars ever since, and developing the...

If the workshop procedure is properly followed, then the shift is very good, considering the transaxle layout and the linkage mechanism which is more than 2mtrs long.

    Given that I own a GTS 5-spd, a GTS 5-spd race car and a late 928 S4 5-spd and that I work on them alongside 944s and early GT3s I think I am somewhat qulified to comment... The 928 is no more or no less complex than any car of the era loaded with options. There is a lot of stuff on the fuse...

    Correct me if I am wrong, but in the Porsche/BMW world, 40k is considered low mileage for a 2010 car. I wouldnt' have an issue with a Maserati with that mileage. Or am I missing something, given that the brand is totally new to me? The car is being bought to be driven, not as an investment...

    Thank you for the kind words, everybody! From what I am reading so far on here and in subsections of the forum, it almost reads like the issues I am likely to ecounter with my 2003 Imola Red E46 M3 coupe :whistle: Some ot the stuff is serious, but a lot of it is just normal on a 10yrs old...

    Hi, I have lusted after a Maserati ever since my parents gave me a Matchbox Bora back in the 1980s. For various reasons that ship sailed and anyhow I was too busy playing with Porsches when ropey, but driveable Boras were in the mid 30s. I am still playing with Porsches and BMWs, but the...
