One of our crew has a Maserati. I love it. Great lines, sweet motor. No problems. I’d say yours was well bought.
You bought the Maserati from @PokerRun388 ?! Maybe he/she IS real!!! 🤣 🤣 🤣Sold the Abarth a few days after the RS, price was right; $5k. Was planning on going car-less for several more months; work is remote into 2021 and classes are most likely going to revert back to online. Went car-less for a few weeks until a friend sent me a shady cars.com listing for a Maserati. It was 1 picture of this car, none of the info was filled out correctly (was listed as a Manual v12 FWD car...) I messaged the seller, said I'd agree to $6k if the car was solid based on a PPI at a maserati dealer and she said ok. I scheduled the PPI, then she sort of got cold feet about driving the car to the Maserati dealer (car hadn't been registered in a few months as she won it in a divorce and didn't get the title for a few months). So I said fine, you're really close, I'll do $4k, cash, skip the PPI. She said ok, I went, it started, I drove it home. At that price, I felt like I could at a bare minimum, get $4-5K out of the car if it needed a lot of work, or I can put around $5k into it (that's how much the clutch costs, with labor), and tires, then drive it for a few months and sell it for $12-15k. In decent shape, they're only worth about $20k.
Is it an RS, no, is it as fast as an RS, no. But it's a a 390 HP ferrari engine that my wife can drive that I paid less than what I sold my Abarth for. Should be pretty stout and reliable as it has a good history up until a few months ago with regular service (car got hailed on when sitting a few months ago, and it being Aluminum, is a pricey hail fix.) Some other issues like I need to put the wiper assembly back together. But I'm willing to put 2-3-4k into it, tires, drive it for a few months, then trade it in for something and hopefully make a few bucks. Sucks, I bought it a day before a long road trip, so I haven't been able to wash it and start taking stock of what it needs and what I can start doing.
My dad actually had a Spyder back in 2002. He had bought it new as a place holder in between some other cars. I always liked it; I was maybe 15? So having the chance to own that same car nearly 20 years later is pretty cool.
Anyone want to trade for an RS?!?! I'll add $15k!
Lol, that guy still lurking?! If I buy my 2nd RS before he buys his...
Not this car, clearly.I’m not going to overpay for a used vehicle. These dealerships aren’t going to boss me around. My price will start with a ‘2’ or I walk.... You loose 15-20% the minute you drive it off of the lot & 40-50% by the time the 3/36 is up. And these dealers want to sell 2-3yo cars at MSRP? It’s nonsense.... if a dealer wants to make a deal, then we can talk.
