Yup, I did buy a Maserati Coupe 4200 CC.

Also rented a Type R for a work trip. Was really impressed! Super quick, and easy to heel/toe. Suspension rebound sucks, as it's pretty bouncy. Love the big bolstered seats.

On to the 4200:

It's an 02 model in Verde Goodwood with the not-as-bad-as-expected Cambiocorsa automated manual. 49k miles. Parts availability kinda sucks if you need something local. Both Maserati and Ferrari dealers carry very little (Ferrari had nothing).

I like how it drives. Its definitely on the GT side of things, so not nearly as sporty as an equivalent 996. Engine sound is just fantastic. Love the rev matched downshifts too.

Will keep it for a little, fix a few things and likely upgrade to a GranSport.

Lovely car (and what a noise they make!), but by God you're a brave man; two ABC Mercedes and a Maserati. Luckily you're pretty handy at fixing things yourself, because I shudder at the potential for bills down the line. :ill:

Little update. Was able to get the build sheet from Maserati with all the options from new as well as an original dealer advertisement and 56-page brochure.

Also went to a pretty awesome collection with the Benz club.

Next up for the 4200 is the air filter, headlight bulb, and reflector. All parts have arrived.

Fixed some stuff, and more broke.

Headlight was out, so i figured it was just a bulb. Remove the wheel, and they give you a nice access panel. OE toolkit screwdriver pictured.

Bulb didnt fix the issue, so I'm going to look for an igniter next.

Glad i ordered the air filter. It also requires removing the wheel.

Replaced a broken reflector. Part is shared with Pantera, Countach, and I'm sure countless other Italian cars.

Then it blew a coolant hose at 7500rpm. Waited 4 hours for Roadside Assistance that never showed up. Ended up having a friend yank me home in his Cayenne Diesel.

Can see the massive rupture here. Odd, cause all the hoses are soft. All new hoses and reservior will be ordered.
