Sorry but you're full of sht... 40k car to a 100k car come on man... Lets just say you have this kind of money i'd say get any car you want under 40k and spend your 60k on investments... And if you feel like driving a ferrari go rent one for a day for like 1,000 (or whatever it is)

Dude i said im thinking about trading my car.. I never said i got 360. For your INformation, i already ask the dealer that have 360 .. They told me it will come out about 1200 per month.. I can always use it as a tax ride off cause i m stock investor and realty estate... anyways it is not my point. i just want weight the pro n con on the 360.. i did rent ferrari F355 in the past for my brother wedding. it was only 500 dollars per day. plus 1M insurance. lol Also for your information, chinese people have money .. remember that.!!! Right now. im paying 750 / month dollars and total 51K with interest to purchase.. 750 to 1200 is not far to reach .. price range...

Is this a joke...if you're seriously frustrated with your 335 and thinking about replacing it with a Ferrari then you must be nuts. I doubt very seriously you can lease...buy...whatever a Modena for $1,200 a month. Even if that were the case then no offense but if you're concerned about how much your car payment is then you can't afford the up keep on a Ferrari.

No one is questioning the financial situation of you and your family. And if you really had money, there would be no need to do payments and waste unneeded amount on interest, just pay the whole thing cash before you leave the dealership.

Also 750 and 1200 is quite far off...it is almost double of what you are paying now. Before you make the switchover, go look at the insurance and maintenance factor as well.

Is the location of the pics in your garage where you live? And personally, if I had a 100k budget, there would be many many cars that I would rather spend my money on than a 7 year old ferrari

I work at an exotic car store in FL called Fortlauderdale Collection and all I can say is do NOT buy this car as your daily driver. I get to drive these cars all day long and I wouldnt be happy driving one of these as my daily driver. If your serious about getting this car and want me to get u the price it should be at just reply with all the info on the car. Mike.

OP was being defensive but came across sounding rather snobby about his money. Definately not cool.

Whatever...if he has the money, then I say go for it. I've never owned a Ferrari, likely I never will. The cost of a oil change is about the same as my current car payment. A 3 series and a Ferrari are not even in the same league.

Beautiful car, but from what I have read/heard from several Ferrari owners...half the time you own the car it is in the garage getting fixed, the other half is pure driving orgasm that makes you think it is all worth it... I don't think I could stand for anything that high maintenance no matter how beautiful it looks. That includes both girls and cars.

For that money, and you want a semi-reliable car, I'd get a Porsche. Slighty cheaper to maintain (but still way more expensive than a BMW) and better reliability than a Ferrari.

Test drive the Ferrari 360 and tell us how much better it is than the 335i.

Please also let us know if the performance is worth the extra $60k.

Much better idea... Personally I'd go for a GT3 at that price, but any new 997 would be a better buy than an 8 year old 360. Plus if you want to finance you'd get way better terms.

He said he was a stock investor and also a realty investor. Neither of which im confident he is good at.

his occupation is investing in money. that doesnt mean he cant waste money either on something like a ferrari... just cuz ur an investor doesnt mean u have to live your lifestyle in smart money decisions. what concept are u trying to say here? that since he is a stocks and real estate investor he has no right to do stupid things with the money he's earned?

Im very humble if you get to know me in person. Not really cocky at all. im just responding to someone think im bsing about getting it.. im debating if i should get it or not. Once it break, it is too costly in part. However, im putting myself to auto mechanic school so i can tune my own car... There is no limit what you can learn right?At this point im compare the pro and con of that 360.. I would not go anything over 100K.. ANything over 100K , i rather buy another home to invest. my friend got a Ferrari 355 spyder. He is paying over 1 million dollars insurance for it. i think his was over 4000 dollars insurance preuim per year.
