Default What Next - Gallardo, F430 or AMV8 ?

Hello All

This is me - I don't have too much time to post sadly...

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/introd...o-tokyo-2.html (Hello From Tokyo)

Anyways, what do you guys reckon I should get next?

Lamborghini Gallardo
Ferrari 430
Aston Martin AMV8

I will keep my 997 for a few more months and buy my wife a Boxster S - she likes cabs but not the look of the 997 Cab - I agree. The Boxster is a much more attractive car as a cab.

Interested in your comments.

Don't think many of us here[me included] could be of any help especially from an ownership point of view,but yes do keep us updated on what you would go in for.

Porky - Congrats on the new car purchase in advance!! Now from all these mouthwatering choices, you can't make the wrong one but I personally would either go for a Red 430 or an Orange Gallardo!

Best of luck with the car hunting!

My wife says Lambo but my heart is telling me Ferrari - I got the bank details of the Ferrari dealer and have until the end of the month to confirm my order and join the waiting list! Next question is colour. I am thinking tour de france blue with blue carpets, blue dash, crema leather and blue stitching.... The red's are great but quite in your face....

The other thing is, it has to be a manual box. I love that gated shift - the first time I got my hands on a Ferrari (2003 360F1) I got bored of the F1 shift quickly. The manual is for "man" the F is for female - : ) I only kidding

Amen to that, a proper gearbox is always always more fun than flappy paddles.
