A result of the banking sector thinning out their staff.

Has anyone found a car they would rather own (Ferrari 458 is the exception) but seriously for $$$ what would you rather have?

Whenever someone asks this question there are always people who respond with Ferraris, Veyron, etc. But for the life I live the real question is: what car would you rather have as a daily driver living in a city?

So far the 1M is still my choice at any price point because it's such a good blend of performance and practicality in a small package. I used to think I'd eventually swap to a 911 but I don't like the direction Porsche is taking that car--991 is BLOATED.

A couple weeks ago, I took a 2009 Aston Martin V8 Vantage (manual of course) for a drive. It still is a beautiful looking car to me, but the interior is starting to feel a little dated. Once driving, the little (odd) quirks were quickly overshadowed by the glorious sound of the V8. Just the sheer sound of it made me want to push harder...and yet I was barely at the speed limit. Thankfully this car was anything but fast as the brakes were average and the steering was vague.
I had always dreamt of driving an Aston, but as I handed the keys back an drove off in the 1M I realised the problem wasn't the Aston...it was the 1M.
It has ruined my Aston dream and there isn't another car I'd rather be driving right now, in the real world, than the 1M.

True the Aston v12 is special, but that wouldn't be real in my current world
