Now that I have found a place to live in Jersey (not easy as I am treated like an Albanian bar tender - without any housing qualifications, and I wanted a place with storage for the 365BB), I need to address the question of daily transport.
There is one dealership on this tiny island, which has a monopoly on everything nice. Bentley, Aston, Porsche, BMW.
Obviously, I want to drive something that can rival my other cars, but it needs to stand out in the rain 200 days a year so I want something reasonably reliable, practical, and fun. It will need to do the run to Holland reasonably often too, so a good GT is what I'm after. I'm thinking about max GBP60k without importing costs.
Since there is an official dealership for BMW, Porsche, Aston here, I'm thinking of finding a 2nd hand car in the UK and having them ship it over here. This gives me the ability to find the car with the specs I want.
1. Porsche 997 Carrera 2S, new version if possible
2. BMW M3.
3. Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster
I've also considered a second 550 Maranello and even a 308 but I wouldn't want to leave it outside all the time. I've discarded the Maserati Granturismo although I love it - the problem is the roads are very narrow here and the car is rather wide (as would be a 550 of course). The 3 options above are nice and compact.
For me, the Porsche is attractive because I love its looks and it's a sensible option. I've never owned a Porsche either so that appeals to me, to try it out. Jersey has lovely summers so the Aston will be great for those days but I do feel it is a bit of a hairdresser's (or city boy's) car, the same for the Boxster. The M3 is awesome but I already own a 335i in Holland so it's a bit of a trodden path.
Does anybody have any other suggestions?
