Is it known what they are going with? The top Alfa engines are also Ferrari manufactured, but even more "Ferrari" than what Maserati had. The Maserati turbo engines I thought had a Chrysler block that assembled by Ferrari.

The V8 Maserati twin turbo would be the one to get in a Qporte, but doesn't sound as nice. Probably would with a Larini on it.

Sort of off topic for this thread, but thought maybe some of you guys might have opinions/advice. I"m eventually looking to replace my 9 y/o Ford Edge in the next year or so. Leaning towards something like a 2016-2018 Audi Q5 or the BMW X4 (hate the styling of the X5). Anyone have experience with either?

Youre the second person to tell me that. Coworker had the extended warranty, and it still cost him a lot to get a starter replaced.

The Cadillac XT5 is a heck of a suv. The new Xt6 is nice too if you want something bigger.

A friend leased a 7 series. He custom ordered the car for around 120K.

When the lease ended, he took a loan out on the car with a BMW extended warranty. 2 years into the extended warranty, he passed about 20K in repair costs that was paid by the warranty.

5 years since I first got the car, I bet it's worth less than 20K at best. Looks brand new and the interior is a marvel. He check boxed every option and then some...

I'm not a fan of any of the new BMW's at all. All the maint costs seem to be crazy. I'd have no problems buying a few older models though. The e85/86 Z4 3.0si or Z4M, E39 540i and M5, and any of the M3's before the F80 are all cars i'd have. ......and maint be damned I'd love an old 8 series.

Looks like I'm getting ready to sell our Volvo. We've really enjoyed it but it's time to move on. We'll miss that V8 sound coming out of a rather vanilla looking Volvo lol. I'm on the hunt for a 70's Cadillac now, with either the 500 or 472 V8. I didn't realize how difficult decent ones are to find, but the hunt is on.

I hope so. I remember my Dad's 84 Fleetwood with the floaty ride and super comfy seats, so I have a soft spot for older American cars like that. I don't want car payments anymore, so it should be some fun on a budget.

On my budget, "beautiful" will probably turn into "doable" lol.

Found one for you, if they do not cancel the Mecum auction at Indy this May. Could maybe go for less than you think, as these sometimes go for less than others, like a Chevy SS. Plus, it is offered with no reserve.

Whoa, that is a good find. I'll be keeping an eye on that, but I seriously doubt they'll run the auction in May.

I thought you'd like that. Also doubt May auction will happen, but at least you know this is out there for sale.

There’s a gold Deville in town I’d say a 72-73 daily driver when I first saw it it wasn’t bad but last time idk what they did but they took off half the paint.
