    I'm probably in the minority but I'd rather have a matte black Aventador than any Ferrari out

    FTFY. Matte's look great in print but are incompatible with the real world.

    Ahhh... the age old question Ferrari or Lamborghini.

    I'm not really feeling any of the colours available for the Aventador.

    I apparently one of a very few people who likes the FF, so I would get one of those instead and be the only idiot driving one of those.

    Though a Underground Racing kitted Gallardo, R8 or 458 sounds like fun.


    I don't have the money for one, so....problem solved :laugh:

    To honest, I'll take an Aston over a Lambo or Ferrari. Astons are just pure sex on wheels.

    Ummm, I said I would take it over any of them, I didn't say it was better in any aspect except I loveAstons look. I'd rather be driving and seen driving in an Aston than a Lambo or Ferrari. I go to the track every 3-4 months but unless I have a billion dollar of disposable income, I am not going to track any of these car either way so yes I'd be very happy to have an Aston over a Ferrari or Lambo.

    Yeah, me too. I'm more of an Aston guy, and would take that any day over a Ferrari or Lambo. And make that Aston a V12.

    I'm lucky enough to live about 5 streets down from an Aston Martin dealership. Every single evening I jog past some of the most mouthwatering beauty in the world. Its tough not to plan a break in....

    Yeah, Aston -12s seem to just have some sort of magical hold over those who love them. Each time I ask myself why the &U%& I'm in law scholl, I remember, oh, right, DB9, and then I think, right, good idea.

    Take them seriously.

    A HUGE part of the crisis of newly-minted lawyers and their struggle to find even meager employment is that pre-law students do not adequately understand their real world options, but base decisions on the myth of lawyers' status in society. The problem is that the US has FAR more lawyers than it needs, far more law schools than it needs, and far, far, far too many law school applicants. This is a supply >> demand issue, and the outcome of that is natural.

    To go to law school in this day and age you absolutely must have either:

    1) A plan for exactly what you want to do with your law career that includes research on the demand for and viability of your chosen career, a frank and honest estimate of your own abilities, a knowledge of the market in which you want to practice, and target GPA/LSAT scores.

    2) You absolutely love the law and are going to be happy with 75% or better of the law career options because that is what you want from life, and not because you are using law as a tool to get other things you want in life, like Aston Martins.

    Its harsh but true. And since you don't go to law school without a Bachelor's, the requirements of either option is not too much to expect of a college student. I am an option 1) sort of guy, and assured myself of my path with massive research, BUT I got lucky on top of that, partially because of the solidity of my plans and my ground for them (maybe one shouldn't even call it luck). They say that humans are vainer of their luck than their merits, that's doubly true of law students, but if you count on luck you will be left out in the cold.

    Out of the top richest lawyers I know, and I mean people worth $10+ million, none of them went to a top school. The very richest one I know, worth a minimum of $50 million, went to a true no-name school.
