Very nice looking Ghibli!!! Is that a wrap or plasti-dip? I did something very similar to my first 2015 Ghibli, color scheme wise. Did a matte gray plasti-dip, very similar to what you have there,...

The "Wave" (or non-wave)

Got the friendly Maserati wave today from a black GT, first time I've gotten a wave in a while. For me, it's only GT or QP owners that wave first or wave back. Very rarely do other Ghibli owners...

I have that same JL Audio aftermarket sub installed where the spare tire used to go. I had the oem sub removed so it's open air. No rattle. That said, mine is a 2018. I think the 14-15s and maybe...

It may be you're just being impatient with it. Both my Ghibli's were the same. Sometimes it takes a few minutes for the temp to reset to the correct reading. But it always does.

the oem pirelli's blow (literally). Definitely get the Michelin super sports. It's a no brainer and there's lots of posts on this forum about those pirelli's.

I've posted about this before. Sadly it's true, it's harder to replicate the "shift boom" in the newer models. I was shift-booming all around town in low gears, zooming from stoplight to stop sign...

JL Audio 10TW3-D4
Shallow-mount 10" subwoofer

I placed it where the spare tire used to go. I'm happy with this choice.

Good call on both ends. It seems the maratea is one of the rarer colors. Mostly black ghiblis where I live and I only see the occasional white, blue or grey.

Great color, I'm a grigio maratea man myself. I love how it changes colors in the sunlight versus shade, the paint can really pop. Congrats!

Another forum member and I discussed this last year. I'm pretty sure all granlussos come with the standard suspension, which is the softest suspension you can get on a Ghibli. Your '17 sport...

This is a pretty good description if you ask me. I had a 2015 SQ4 and now a 2018 SQ4. The 2018 has a more refined, precise sound. The 2015 screamed wildly, especially on cold start. I personally...

That's a good point, so we're not really comparing apples. I have a 2018 with the Harmon 900W stock amp. So I had no need for a new main amp and just added that same sub you're looking at with a...

I did what you described in option 3 (same sub) but upgraded the front 2 door speakers. In hindsight, I would have also upgraded the center dash speaker. The stock speakers are very basic and low...
