Hey guys, been a while since I have posted here but I was hoping I could get some real world feedback. Should I get the Gran Turismo I've always wanted since '08 but never had a chance to buy or do I go with the tech filled S Class. In my budget I am looking at either as a CPO, I can afford an '18 S Class but can't quite make the stretch for a post '18 Gran Turismo with the newer technology. I have driven both of these cars a bit and I am familiar with the driving dynamics, I have done all the excel math on cost of ownership, but I want to know what are they actually like to live with, not at 10/10 driving, but 3/10 driving on the daily basis. Back seats are important but at the same time they are only for occasionally driving with the girls in the back (all sub 60kg) and I have other sports cars so speed and sportiness are not necessarily the deciding factor. This is going to be a grand touring/daily driver type car. Here is my question list: How has the CPO experience been for you in either brand? I am somewhat worried about Maserati because their dealer network is so small compared to Porsche or Mercedes. If you had the Maserati Pre 2018, has the old infotainment system been something that annoyed you on a daily basis or did you just learn to deal with it? How bad can it be? If you had the S Class, did it become too boring, or did you appreciate it more over time? Call me vain but I love the ambient lighting of the S Class, but maybe after a while I would get annoyed by it and turn it off. Is the Gran Turismo a car you would be happy driving in boring situations and occasionally in traffic? Or would you eventually wish you had a boring car for boring driving? Is the Gran Turismo comfortable on 150-200 mile trips? How did passengers feel in either car? If the wives are in the back seat for extended periods of time are they going to b*tch and moan on long trips or will they be comfortable with the Maserati? If you tell your friends let's go out and take the car, are they going to cringe at the Gran Turismo and prefer to take something bigger? Anecdotes are welcome. In my circle of friends they all say Gran Turismo because to an enthusiast it's easily the choice we would all make. But when we aren't out having fun together I actually have to live with this car every day and maybe a big luxury boat would be a nice balance to the other sports cars. But my only experience with the S Class on a long term basis was a '91 we had 10 years ago, I'm assuming it's a different experience today. And really any feedback would be great.
