Yes winter is coming and I will be keeping my ghibli in my garage - so want to get a cover for it. If you got one already would love to know where and if you recommend it.

Thanks

Yes, I bought the OEM Maserati Ghibli indoor car cover ... fits like a glove ... perfect fit.

Genuine Maserati Ghibli Indoor Car cover 940000345

Best price I found was at Miller Motors ... not always in stock, but gives a good bargaining chip for your local dealer to match. tjsbeer also bought the same cover for his Ghibli.

I find that my car is covered in dust when using the factory cover.

It could be because my car is so datk dark and shows everything.
It might be better for you with a lighter car.
But, I usually don't bother using the cover.

I have bought car cover for my 1st two cars. After awhile, I got lazy to put it on and off. If it is parked in the garage, I think it will be easier to get a quality duster and clean it once awhile. That way, you can still admire the vehicle and feel like you are doing something with it.
:D

As you are going to garage the car all winter, as am I, and I will not drive it from end of November through end of February, unless emergent AND no moisture or salt on roads...what do we do about the battery?
Is there a trickle charger recommended for the car?

I use the Maserati CTEK charger, (Maserati part# 940000275) if I'm traveling for over two weeks or in winter. It works great. You install in trunk and it hides away nicely. I wrote thread about it back in March. MRPA1999 also commented on how you can buy the same charger on Amazon without the Maserati name for less than $75. I paid $150 installed when I bought the car new.

AS an aside, I will run mine a good days between Dec-Feb to keep from getting flat spots on my Sotto3 Winter tires.

I used to dust my cars but that can led to fine swirls in a soft paint finish. I have a few outdoor car covers I bought for my other cars which novelty wore of quickly first time they got wet or dirty. I still use the California duster on my Escalade ... its way to big to wash and/or detail frequently.

The indoor Maserati cover works fine for me ... doesn't show the dust on Grigio Mareata, but also is a little extra protection from the occasional passerby. In summer I don't use indoor cover ... more for winter.

I keep my Ghibli parked in a middle bay which has extra room all around plus don't open the middle bay door unless backing out. Leaving the other bay doors open provides fresh air to garage and little to no dust on my Ghibli.

I'm going to use my Battery Tender trickle charger that I used my classic cars before I got the Ghibli.
