Agreed completely the manual is THE version to go for! The F1 is for sissies!!!

if you're not into track days, then i'd suggest you go in for an Aston Martin. it's more exclusive compared to the others.
that's the one i would pick over your other choices.

if you plan to take your car onto the track then i guess the Ferrari would be more fun than the Lamborghini - unless you have really wet and slippery weather in Tokyo.

YES (as my avatar suggests!). After seeing this post of yours i am pretty sure you know what you want, and just wanted some encouragement here!

Im not too sure about the blueblueblue...maybe just on the outside..donno about the rest.

Heres a video that will make you feel like your money is going to be well spent on the 430 (assuming a similar amount of attention is given to the 430!) - The 599 GTB Fiorano in the making - Google Video

Man.. how many ppl get to make such decisions?? i feel the Lambo has more oomph.. then again the 430 has its own place.. the AM seems out of place.. I am also thinking of the Lambo or the F430..(although in a 1:18 scale) Good luck on ur quest!!

Regards,
Mav!

Thanks for the link! I am still not 100% on the blue, my last 4 cars have been black or blue! I hate making colour choices because I always end up changing my mind after a month of getting the car Oh well, the wife reckons black, will let her decide on the day and hold her responsible afterwards

I think he's bought a E-Gear Gallardo! Going from the videos he's posted in another thread.

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.
This is more like a bragging thread than an advise thread.... show off

That looked kinda like a test drive to me...hence the question.

However, remember that most purchase decisions are steered by women, so going by that and what he said his wife's opinion was, you might be right
