This was way worse than Pheonix Yellow.

Actually, I quite like Phoenix Yellow, mainly because it makes buying a second hand E46 M3 less expensive. Phoenix Yellow ones with less K's are almost always cheaper than similar age M3s in other colours.

I like Phoenix Yellow, as it falls into a special category of colours like that gorgeous orange the 997 porsche targa came out, that a friend bought. And when people ask why he chose it, and the simple response is 'when you can afford one, you can get what ever colour you like too'. Cracks me up everytime!

I'm another in favor of Phoenix Yellow. I suppose you either hate it or love it but that can be said for any colour.

Yeh, they are cheap cos 99% of people hate them, so they are hard to move...

Porsche orange can't be compare to PY... It's a much nicer colour, and actually looks good on the car

Very subjective..... but each to their own. The world would be boring if there was no individuality.

Ahhh, how true those wise words are

Spotted the hummer with the 28 inch wheels the other day coming home... Has a huge custom install in the back, with a tv that is probably about 50 inch!

I have seen a black hummer several times with DIMIR as the plates traveling on Mona Vale rd.

I think it's that leather lounge guy with the lambo (or similar) that he parks out the front of his shop at Chatswood.

If I ever buy something at his shop I will definatly be asking for a discount.

+1 I've seen the Murcielago as well as a Mercedes S65 outside that shop, both with DIMIR plates. I wonder if he is claiming them as advertising expenses?

Yeah I was next to the guy in his F430 the other day.

The H2 guy is a one of my good mates friends. He lives a couple of doors up from me and has a huge collection, F430, H2, F150 truck, 997TT, CLK 55, E55.

DEMIR Furnitures owners are like myself Armenian Austalians. We know there family and i must say they have a huge family. They also have as you've all seen a lot of cars that they share in between them. I personally love there black Lambo, F430 and S63AMG

My family have bought furniture off them and they don't like to discount by much so Gerifix no luck there.

There rule book:
1- Small discount = Higher chance of buying another exotic

E92 335s everywhere!

In the 30 minute trip home tonight I passed 11 (eleven) E92 335s going the other way! 3 Blacks, 3 greys, 2 silvers, 2 whites, 1 blue. (And they weren't in convoy) That's more than 1 every 3 minutes!!
