OMFG!!!

I knew about it (it's a personal import as all were presold). How many are there - 54 or 56? All silver like this one apart from 1 black, 1 blue and 3 white?

Why did he convert the rear to the 2004? This kind of car is supposed to be kept original.

That's THE V8 to have! Apart from the last 15 Final Edition cars (like the $150k blue one for sale) which are basically Sport350's with all the luxuries.

Hmmm... I would LOVE a S350. If this was the Black car, I'd be all over it. Just like if the blue one was one of the two orange cars, I'd be all over it. Hmmmm...... I think I might check it out. I didn't think it was that low in km. And if it was $50k extra, I'd still be just as interested, so the price is a bonus.

I know, just don't tell my wife (things are finally good again).

But I think this shows what a bad deal the Evora is. The S350 would DESTROY it in absolutely ANY comparison you can imagine.

Talking about spending... I am negotiating right now (should know by Tue/Wed). I am not going to say what it is as I don't want to be a gunna, but I have got it down to $225k on road. I want $200k on road, so will see.

Talking about the wife... I finally got her head around this possible $200k purchase. She also thinks the Evora is a Aug 2010 delivery, not 2009  :? If I turn up with this Sport350...  :scratchchin: :scared:

I was just thinking that. Swap the 348 or the S4s...  :scratchchin:
