      I'm pretty sure all parts are readily available, but I agree on the "finding a guy to do the work" part

        I don't think so. I have a basic b***h bmw and had to order sump bolts from Germany, no local dealership had them. Imagine what it's like with a rare italian luxury car.

      most reliability problems in maseratis are just lowlife leasing the car for 2 years just to floor it before warm up until they blow a gasket
      bmw solved this problem with a temporary rev limiter

        Lexus sole purpose is to be low grade/available "luxury". It's just a slightly nicer Toyota.

            yea but do you do it? please be honest. me i personally try to minimize lane changes since each one is a liability and the only people that do it are poor non-whites and women. So do you do it? have you ever even considered minimizing such a thing?

            So luxury cars are basically not worth shit since they aren't really all the popular among the general population so when the manufacturer moves on to newer/different designed shit. You're shit out of luck because there's no aftermarket for those parts.

      while it's common knowledge that luxury cars depreciate like shit, Maserati is the leader statistically. I think Quatroportes lose like 70 percent of their value in the first three years of ownership. that's why I'm asking-Im curious as to what is the reason behind. Actually, I've been thinking of buying a used Granturismo. they are fine looking cars and you can get an almost new one from nothing, but I do wonder if there's a catch

    No aftermarket parts. Even the oem are a pain. So I hear. I actually work in an aftermarket parts warehouse. Some guy driving on of these asked if we have a radiator.

    >"Wtf really?!"
    Dude you drive a fricking Maserati. Stop trying to be a cheap butthole. Driving a luxury car means you're just begging to get gaped unless you have "Frick you, I don't care" amounts of money.

      >plastic engine
      oh you are one of those people who don't know how composites work? plastic used in engines isn't the same plastic your pen is made of, moron. also, how is this a "plastic engine" by any stretch of imagination? the only thing made of plastic I see is the intake manifold, but that's normal, all LS engines have manifolds like that and nobody complains

          yeah, a naturally aspirated engine totally needs a metal intake manifold for all that added cost and weight! or what else do you want it obe made of? carbon? yeah, 10k extra for a fancy looking intake that is almost the same as the plastic one genius!
          >automatic good
          yes it is good in a big luxury car and a manual ha sno place in it. go drive your rusty manual honda, boyracer

      Why are you like this man? Nobody who matters actually cares about resale value. , of which a cast iron intake manifold has no effect anyway.
      This guy is just another "muh factory jobs" rust belt loser living off a decaying pension he never really earned driving his "dont make em like they used to 94 Dodge Ram" while schlepping his fatter every year midwest ham beast woman to bowling.
