    I hope I’m not jinxing my car lol...

    .. 3k miles driving after oil last oil change ... I didn’t add a drop of oil .. my old 456 needed quarter every 1000 ..
    mile ..

    old and new cars I owned usually the exhaust full of black soot... after few thousand miles ..

    This picture for 612 2005 10k miles and maserati 2018 18k miles

    Mine stay pretty clean too. They should not soot up unless there is a problem or bad driving conditions. Sooty pipes indicate the engine is running too rich. Alternatively, if the engine is running too lean you get a build up of white/grey powder. I don’t see that on your pipes. To me it looks fine, but I’m not a trained mechanic.

    I get similar results with my 599. My 360 was a different story but the 12s have been good on this.

    599s don't burn oil in normal non-track use.

    Super clean exhaust tips.

    I'll use this argument if anyone says my 612 isn't environmentally friendly.

    Levante is turbo (as stated above); this accounts for the difference. 6 cats on a 612 too, so plenty of surface area to promote burning off soot.
