Which winter tyres are best for Maserati Quattroporte?
"I run a 2008 Maserati Quattroporte in Spain. The tyres are needing replacing and as I am due to do some driving in Northern Europe this winter I was going to fit winter tyres shortly. Any problems that I should be aware of using winter tyres not in winter. My supplier can source Pirelli Sotto Zero 3 for the rear with the same specs, but only Sotto Zero 2 91V for the front. Alternatively the supplier can get Vredestein Wintry Xtreme with the 91Y rating - would I be better fitting these? On return fromplace them every 8-9000 miles). I would put PZeros back on the rear and keep the winter tyres on the front. Is that advisable? Thanks in advance for any advice you can give. "
Don't ever mix full cold weather tyres with summer tyres and don't use winter tyres in summer, especially where they will be subject to high temperatures. Sotto Zeros are Pirelli's high performance winter tyres. Michelin also does high performance winter tyres that offer amazing performance in snow (I've driven them on 911s and AMGs). If there is any chance you will be doing high speeds (in Germany), you must fit the high performance cold weather tyres all round.

Is the Maserati Quattroporte GT a good buy?
"I have seen a Maserati Quattroporte GT, registered in March 2005, with 27,000 miles on the clock, with FMSH and an asking price of £30,000. This is the Duo Select model which I have heard criticised and obviously an older pre-2009 facelift model. I have read your review of the Quattroporte, but wondered what I should be aware of before making a secondhand purchase. The car will probably cover 10,000 miles a year of mostly urban driving. I know fuel economy will be abysmal and I imagine servicing will be astronomical, but aside from this, are old Maserati reliability issues resolved? This seems like a good price and is sold by a reputable garage, so seems fairly tempting. It is in the metallic verde colour, which I am sure brings the price down, but I am quite happy with it."
A friend of mine has a 3200V8 twin turbo torque converter auto that he bought cheaply a couple of years ago and that has been totally reliable. I don't have any feedback on the automated manual Quattroportes on the basis of which to advise you. Maybe Googling will get you somewhere.
