No issues, drove to France in June with people in the back and crammed full with luggage and belongings, it sat down perhaps another 10 mm on that occasion but absolutely no issues.
The spring rate takes into account the drop.
You’ve convinced me! I might need to see if I can get another set made up

Fit new rubber boots to the springs (inexpensive) reset the geo to 1.5 front & 2.5 rear camber and away you go.

Dropping the rear by 25 mm gives the same tyre to arch gap front and back. The OEM rear gap is twice that of the front.
Do you know I have never noticed that the rear is higher until you mentioned it. Wonder why this is ? No wonder the stance didn’t look right out of the factory. Seems a pretty cheap fix just doing the rear and adding spacers. So much better than Maserati intended. You learn something new everyday…104223

Exactly Andy, it just doesn’t look right with that 4 x 4’ish rear gap, looks like it’s on stilts.

It has always been the one thing that just didn’t look right and now I know why as front is lower than back. How come Maserati very looked at the car and said the same I wonder. Yours looks spot on now my friend.

Congrats - facelift MC is a fine choice. Especially in red :cool:

the silver strips on the interior are easy to pop out with trim removal tools, and you can get a carbon wrap. The trim down the side of the head unit (with the sport button etc) does not come out the same way though.

I might give the carbon wrap a go
I’m sure it cannot look any worse than the silver
Ps how do you remove the bit with the sport button etc ?

If you want a more permanent finish, I had my wood trim in the QP hydrodipped silver carbon.

Full centre console strip down, head unit out etc I think.

I have the same silver trim and considering wrapping carbon. - might experiment with an overlay sticker for the buttons panel.
