    Re: What Next?

    porky..if you get the chance to test drive a 430 do so and decide for yourself

    i am a strong believer that there is no absolute best car it really depends on what you are looking for in a car

    i for one used to believe, as many p-car oweners, that ferrari's are overrated and they are mainly looks etc

    however after experiencing it the driving dynamics and feel of a 430 are superior to any 997 or gallardo IMO..a gt3/rs are stiffer and lighter so they will run better times at many tracks but the driving feel is another story

    Re: What Next?

    Porky, I am after tiles and stone shortly as I am about to build a house later this year!

    You are right, Australia is absolutely the best place the live in. Like you, I travel extensively in my job and grew up in Asia, but always love coming home. One thing though, Melbourne is better than Sydney. :P Look forward to meeting you one day when you come back to Australia.

    Anyway back on topic, I will make sure I drive the 07 AMV8 after your comment. Do you know if the gearing was changed in the car? That would make a huge difference to the car I think. It is crying out for shorter gearing in the first 2 gears.

    Re: What Next?

    Hi Way, let me know when you want the tiles! My brothers website is:

    He delivers all over Australia, QLD + WA seem to buy a lot.

    Would love to catch up in Australia, probably would end up in Sydney though...Much prefer the VIC roads.

    Not sure about the gear ratios to be honest with you but the clutch and the actual shift have improved. Seems like brand new cars still have quite a stiff gear shift. After a 1000 km or so seems to get better! Let me know how you go.

    I am lost - I don't know what car to buy next. I only want to own one car. I hate having two or three (at least here in Tokyo) the parking is so expensive I could buy an apartment by the beach in Australia for what I pay for parking.

    I am really needing a change, the last non P car I owned was over 10 years ago and I was only 23 years old then.

    So your suggestions please! And before you all ask, I will use the car EVERYDAY, I couldn't care less about depreciation because I want to enjoy it. I don't go shopping in my cars, I don't care about picking people up or dropping them off, I don't need to worry about safety issues - I look scary

    What do I buy next
