And our service department would not frown upon a modified clutch delay valve.

In fact, we would modify it before the owner took delivery.

Many times more than that, even for a smaller/less profitable store. Plus, BMWNA will not approve the sale unless you have some very qualified/experienced candidates to run the dealership.

Lucky, I would park in the Ferrari lot everyday. They'd probably get suspicious.

Did you see this one?

I wouldn't mind having this one:


Maseratis don't do anything for me, even the MC12.

I LOVE the front of the gallardo and its side profile. The rear is ok.

AWD and that V10... I could be in some big trouble if I were driving that...

The F430 still wins my heart in that battle...

The quattraporte was pretty good looking in motion. Not my cup of mashed potatoes, but a nice car nonetheless...

I'd still get a Ferrari over a Lambo too, but I like that orange one.

But I mean...if I had that kind of money, I would probably just buy them both.

Well, you will need your rainy day sports car... The AWD will help you drive through those puddles...
