My words of wisdom, so long as the money is not at issue: do it!

Re: I need somebody to talk some sense into me!

Saw a black Superamerica broken down recently - very embarassing

I wonder if it was Webby's friend (who has a black one)?! Can't be that many in the UK...

I am diagnosing you with a Vitamin F deficiency; accordingly I am willing to write you a prescription for one Ferrari (no refills), Dispense one only; please check to see if your universal health system in England covers it, I am pretty sure they will if it's medically necessary...

Agree - replace the M6 with the Ferrari!

Re: I need somebody to talk some sense into me!

You guys are out of my league. I'd keep and drive the M5, sell the M6 for the cash to use on vacations or for the down payment on an ocean destination for the M5, and then use a picture of the Ferrari as wallpaper for my computer.

Re: I need somebody to talk some sense into me!

FM, the Ferrari is sweet but personally I would hold out for the 997TT unless of course that's in the cards anyway.

Lust does not come cheap.

Re: I need somebody to talk some sense into me!

Forget the ferrari, the M5, M6. Sell all your cars and one of your houses. Buy the Bugatti Veyron

I would consider buying one, if it wasn't due to the fact it costs freakin 30,000,000 DKR or 2,800,000 here in Denmark.
