2014 Ghibli S Q4 & 2008 C350
C350 -> Ghibli

Just pulled the trigger on a 2014 Ghibli S Q4. Still keeping the C350 for a while yet since the wife wants to drive it for a bit but we'll probably replace it with a ML350 sooner than later. When that happens I'll probably list a bunch of my mods on here for sale.

I've only driven the S Q4 a few times and two of the cars I drove had the sport package (w/ sport suspension) and I have to say that it does drive really nice feels a little more planted than my C350 but it also feels heavier and less nimble than the C with what I've done to it (springs, anti-roll bars, wheels/tires, strut brace). Should be interesting to compare them more when I take delivery and can drive it on my tuff.

I really thought my next car was going to me an AMG and that honestly still weighs on me a bit but having a little slice of Maranello in my garage should help me get over it...

Love the Maserati! Would like to get the Gran Turisimo Sport, maybe in a few years. Nice color choice!

Great choice man. Maseratis have such character, and you got the good looking one that is for sure. Congrats.

Factory ordered 2012 MB C350 w/Dynamic Handling Package currently @120k miles.
Congrats! A true gentleman's ride.

Did you cross shop this with a Panamera? If so, I'm curious why you chose this one?

I did not cross shop the Panamera. Love Porshe but not a huge fan of the styling on that one, although it has grown on me over the years.
