    If I was looking realistically at the moment I would be in the 458 camp but honestly, I am very happy in the Strad for now and like others have mentioned, an Alfieri S with 500bhp plus is the only thing at the mo that would make us separate.

    Been out in a 488 and just did not gel with the turbo setup. Savagely fast but its not all just about that is it?

    The 458 is a beautiful machine and about as fast as you need to go but on the flip side the thought of having to go out and buy red trousers is off putting a tad

    I can vouch for the Cali 30 if 4 seats are useful, I think they are good everyday cars. If itís two doors then lots of options.
    V12 Aston could be an itch. Agree re : lambos.
    I've been hovering on another forum and the people on there have to me this, not jst 1 person either.

    Agree with you matt. I didnít like the 488 drive or sound at all. To save 30-40k and have a N/A is a no brainer for me.

    Would be worrying if the work wasn’t covered under warranty. Worth asking The guys at AV engineering for their honest opinion. Not many people put good news stories on the forums- tales of woe are so much more interesting.

    Not a bad shout but what about something a bit unusual?

    Spyker, or what are Koninseggs going for these days?

    Ascari’s or are all these stratospheric?
