Nice combo, the F430 looks incredible as usual!

So are you really a fighter jet pilot!? That's pretty cool!

very nice combination of cars.

I know the F430 is awesome.

Had a chance to ride in one and the sensation is great.

But I am also a M owner and know that above 200 kp/h the M5/M6 won't let the ferrari go any further.

I guess, best of both world.

fast cruiser: M6
fast racer: f430

mv agusta+ferrari =perfect world

You may want to ask Boxer about it, he once drove an M5 I think, and he might not share the opinion...

Well, above 250km/h it will have to...

But anyway, both great cars with their own special abilities. Congratulations! Still love the way an F430 looks.

I dunno. On Saturday I went out with my 4 yr old son. Parked the 360 and took him off to a playground for a break. Walking back to it, it was surrounded by kids and parents alike. Still got that feeling as I walked up to it "God, I can't believe I own a Ferrari " And that's 2.5 yrs after I bought it. I think the car is depreciating faster than the feeling it delivers!

I know its a funny thing. I really haven't posted on a regular basis for quite a while. I wonder why nobody noticed....hmmm. lol Summer is alright, I am working quite a bit and I can't wait to go on vacation this coming week. It is much needed

Hey Gents thanks for the compliments. 2 months into it now and still loving the car. I don't think that "I can't believe this is my car" feeling will ever go away :-)
