    Compared to the hassle of driving thu a Chicago winter on summers or ruining my winters by driving on the year-round? Yeah.

    looks like the 360 is the servicing cost sweet spot for modern Ferraris :slayer:

    oh, and feel free to send me any forged wheel/tire combos that no longer fit in your living space or garage. i'll happily "store" them for you :happy:

    Not that anyone cares, with all this Ferrari vs Porsche vs Aston nonsense, but...

    My list of cars over the last 18 months, accompanied with semi-humorous brackets:

    78' Fiat 124 Spyder (Best driving experience... Ever... Not kidding)
    BMW 545i (The chix loved the automatic blinds in the rear)
    Acura TL (Most uncomfortable car I've ever owned. Hated this shit)
    Ford Explorer (7 Passenger winter bus)
    Audi S5 (for the ghirls)


    Trading in the daily-driver Fiat at the BMW dealer for the 5 was pretty funny.

    where is that Ferrari pricelist from? The prices are really reasonable.... but doesn't go over some of the expensive services that are also needed, like belt service on the 360...

    Experience Auto owns Ferrari of Long Island. Can't add much else to the date from that. Nice showroom though.

    To whoever I was having a discussion the new GS350 with, I got to say by the reviews, I am starting to be impressed. I got to try and test drive one now.

    It actually won over the 535i, A6 and M37.

    just saw a DB9 this morning, they still look great after all these years. Get one with the later split-5 spoke rims for sure.

    My sister in law has a Toyota Soarer, which is the SC430; they made it as the Soarer for a couple years before they introduced Lexus in Japan. Most cars got a clean slate new model intro like the LS, GS, IS, etc, but the SC and the RX330 (Toyota Harrier) were the only ones to get the badge changeover (and price increase, I think) mid model cycle - so you see Toyota and Lexus versions of those running around.

    They sure do. I like sports car but i'm thinking of a classy one but still little ''sporty'' so DB9 is for sure. And one day in future I will get the DBS that's the dream car!

    I am thinking Jags XKR more affordable. But Merc SL 65 and CL 65 are lovely bang for the buck. Even Maserati. I am talking used 5 year old garage queens.

    I dont like Jaguar and mercedes that much. But Maserati sure do nice cars I like the Quattroporte S and Granturismo S, maybe will try to test-drive those bad boys :)

    But my mind is on the DB9 for sure, I drove it and it's amazing!

    DB9 is to rich for me, but I do love the car. Hopefully by the time I am 30 I can afford something exotic. Most likely no kids, so very possible.
