Hi, well I've always wanted one and I'm now in a position to look to purchase a post 2012 4.7 Granturismo S, either gearbox. Ideally a Grigio Granito Grey, with pale grey or silver alloys + Bose, circa 30K or less ideally and no more than 3 owners. Couple of queries of those in the know, as this would be my first Maserati. Is there anything in particular I should be looking out for? There are some cars I've spotted that could fit the bill. So, does anyone have any history information on any of the following cars:
YJ13EEP,
LJ60EBP
Cheers

Don't have Bose. You won't be able to upgrade to the SM CarPlay option.

Hi, pretty much total novice with the sound system. What is the SM CaPlay option and what benefits does that give you over the Bose system?
Cheers

A search tells me that both are pre facelift examples but that’s all I know.

It gives Apple/Android Car Play and reversing camera etc. There’s a massive thread on here somewhere. It’s £529 plus £200 fitting.

No, misinformation. All GT’s can have the Apple Car Play Navi Plus upgrade.
This was my understanding. Can't see any reason why it wouldn't be the case, having fitted a Parott to a Bose system. The Carplay is a touch more involved but the audio connections seem identical

Make the best short cut to ownership by talking to Richard Grace. His cars are very carefully chosen/sourced, put through a thorough inspection at Autoshield Maserati and anything picked up from that inspection is sorted prior to sale. Do not buy a car that needs work doing - it is false economy. I always prefer to buy a fully sorted car from the outset. Richard will help you narrow down the car spec and transmission that you want to go for. I bought my Gransport LE from him nearly three years ago - an immaculate example.

Apologies. I thought the Bose was an issue for both. My mistake and just my luck! The MD's are no help in finding me a disc either to try and get my nave up and running again. I must say if buying again, the Bose is pretty pointless and not worth the optional charge at new for sure. I have had Germans with better sound as standard.

It's a screen issue in the QP with it not being separate apparently. Not a gubbings or aux connection issue. :(

Sorry, Gaz. To be clear I was talking GT, not QP. The Bose in the GT is an add on (in the boot) In the QP it is, AIUI and different head
