    My brother bought a 2002 Maserati Coupe GT from Dallass last week, so we went to pick it up. Here are some pictures from the trip. I hated the car before I got there, but it really convinced me.

    2002, 10k miles, 6 speed, Nav, 18" HRE 547s...The thing is sick. :eek3:

    EVERYTHING is covered in soft leather.

    They picked us up from the airport in a brand new Quattroporte

    We stopped to eat before hitting the road at some Pizza joint. Uptown Dallass is pretty damn nice.

    Even the headliner is covered in leather. Silver stitching everywhere.

    The car pulls like a motherfucker. It's much faster than I thought it would be. Handles pretty well, the chassis is stiff and comfortable. But the ergonomics suck. Nothing in the interior is where it should be. I was really impressed overall.

    Pictures don't do it justice. I thought it looked like an old Prelude, but it really grows to be beautiful once you spend time with it.

    The sticker was $93,500 ( :ugh: ), he got it for about $55k. :eek3:

    I drove the Quattroporte this summer and loved it. I'm still curious about those, my dad wanted to get the new SLK but i said to check those out as well. Oh and my house is like 5 min from park place(towards Highland Park Village not Downtown)

    He got it at a place called Park Place? There's a Park Place here in WA. They sell nice cars like that there. I wonder if its a nation wide company. Nice car btw.

    Pretty sure it is. The salesman was telling us that the owner owned about 12 dealerships.

    Nah I'm pretty sure its just a Dallas high end dealership. I personally am not a fan of them. Their fleet manager for Mercedes is great, however their service department is atrocious(at least on the Merc side)
