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

Shim, Ive seen some impressive cars around there recently... (I shop for groceries at Wegmans right around the corner...)

In the past week:

Red F430 coupe

Dark Gray Gallardo coupe (new model year with new design wheels)

Yellow 360 spyder

Maroon Maserati Quattraporte (sp)



I love Ashburn

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...
