    I reveled in this for a few minutes yesterday. That sound is intoxicating.

    Such a shame that the driver was some heavy set kid in his 20's who wore a t-shirt, jeans, and a backwards baseball cap. And who is, apparently, a fan of littering. Fucking jersey people.

    In US do you have many people who dress nice with cars like that? I get the feeling it's almost singers, players and like that who drive those kind of cars, no?

    :fu: the 430 even in base trim is perfectly lean looking, perfectly matched to it's sound. No need to add Challenge grilles and stuff, the 430 has this perfect proportion if body panel, grille, and lighting.

    With your post I remembered the other reason why I am less interested in the MR V8 cars - lots of the world's douchebags gravitate towards them. :fu:

    Most of the time I see young douche bags, with more money then they know what to do with, driving them.

    That's what I mean you may have in US more young rich people rappers or whatever coming out from a ferrari with adidas clothes. Then a ''business man'' with a nice suit? I think the older classy people in US drive like a fine BMW or something like that?

    Because here in Sweden you often have older people who dress nice and drive nice cars as Ferrari or something like that.

    I think this one was lowered a bit. Stupid thing to do, IMO.

    And while I do not particularly like black wheels, the set from the 360 CS on a 430 looks very nice. Would consider.



    As soon as one of these is within reasonable reach for me, I shall seriously ponder purchasing one. Wife already understands.

    Don't be fooled with what you see on movies and music videos. You do know most of the cars they show on music videos are rented, right?

    There are plenty of old/middle age people out there that owns Ferraris, Lambos, Astons, etc... that simply does not care how they look. Look at the high-end car meets (as such: http://e89.zpost.com/forums/showthread.php?t=666087) and you'll rarely (if ever) see a rapper or hip-hop artist all blinged out there.

    There are also a good number that wears suits and drives their baller whips to work.

    Most suits that I know who could reasonably afford one of these (plus one or two I know who actually do own) do not actually drive in NYC. Taxi it is (or more usually, black cabs it is).

    It's the young twats who like to make a big stink about their cars by driving them in to the city.

    Most of the people on cribs don't live in the houses they show and most older car collectors, don't give a shit what they look like.


    RFX: SO SO many cars I want in that thread.

    I live in Cali and there are plenty of those who drives Ferraris, Lambos and Jags. They may not use it on a daily basis but they do use to work once in a while. Heck I park next to a 360 Modena at least once a week, dudes daily is a 550i and said he is waiting for the lease to come up to get an M5. Other cars in the lots include a Panamera Turbo as a daily but dude also drives a GT3 once in a while, another has an XJ as a daily and an SLS, other has a Cayenne but he drives a Continental GT more often. All of them worse suits, not MC approved but suits nonetheless.

    Go to Rodeo Drive and you see more rich (old money?) with baller cars than younger ones trying to stunt. I mean there are those young idiots with speaker blaring that can be heard from 3 blocks away to make sure they get your attention but those idiots tend to have a used M3 or some fixed up 535i than Ferraris or Lambos. I just see more older cats ballin with these kind of cars.
