Hey! Awesome Forum.

Just bought a 2016 Ghibli SQ4..

What is the first thing you guys bought for the car? I'm trying to find a badass key chain/Matts/ Licence plate frames etc.. if anyone has links to the best ones send them my way!

Thanks!

new sound system lol. but seriously, replace the stock speakers. it makes an incredible difference even if you don't go as far as adding a powered sub like I did.

you can get easy to install puddle lights with different variations of the maserati logo which i think are pretty cool (and others definitely think are cool when they see them)

my wife bought me this pretty cool carbon fiber key case, although it makes the already fat key borderline obnoxiously big. pretty sure she found it on amazon.

congrats on your new sq4! post pics!

air filters, enjoy for a few months and when you get used to the performance go get a tune. Will change the car completely from what i hear.

I started with a lot of cosmetic features. I would say tinting the headlights/taillights and doing a chrome delete made the car look wayyyyy more aggressive. You can see some of my before and after pictures. I vinyl wrapped all the wood grain trim, as well as the window pillars, mirror caps and door handles in black carbon fiber. Put in the Maserati emblem puddle lights (super easy.) Lastly, you can see the red and black diamond floor mats, goes extremely well with the red and black stitched leather interior.

Here’s the links:

What subwoofer solution did you go with. I have the Harman Kardon system and really it seems fine for now minus needing a boost in the subwoofer output.

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

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

Currently Stock

Thinking of getting a chrome delete as well but have this fear of "Blacking my car out"
I cant decide if I want to change my rims black or brushed metal for a lighter color lol I guess its a good problem to have.

I've had this car for about 3 months now.. So far still love it no issues! but I did finally feel the lack of high quality materials on the interior, its a minor con.. All in all it's a badass car and def turns heads!

tune and air filters. if you live in an area where roads are maintained (not NY) drop it a hair to get rid of wheel gap. Leave the looks of the car alone. These cars look best in stock form other then the ride height (my opinion). Have the tuner have exhaust valves to stay open 100% in sport mode, you won't be mad.

You don’t have to delete all of the chrome or tint the lights.

I still have the chrome emblems and side vents but the trim is blacked out.

I had the Formula Dynamics ECU tune and it was great except every time I went in for service it would be overwritten. Sending it back to FD was too disruptive since it’s my daily driver and only car. I had use JB4 previously on BMWs with good success and know it’s a quality product, so when they released it for the Ghibli I ordered right away. You can change the tune from you phone via Bluetooth which is really cool.

FD sport springs and sway bar are the best ones I have found for the Ghibli.

I did the Formula Dynamics Sport Springs and the FD 22mm wheel spacers. I have the Titano 21" wheels. The FD additions totally changed the looks.
