Right enough, that is a nice Mondeo. Don't think much of the inconsiderate twit who parked so close to it in the Ferrari mind [:cool:]

When me & a few of the lads were in Bournemouth about 6 weeks back,
we paid this place a visit www.bramshaw.net (Im sure mikedav knows it
[:D])

The fella was good enough to let us 3 (fairly thuggish looking) lads
roam freely Im the showroom and they happened to ahve two of these sat
in there - OMFG! They are gorgeous, they were all unlocked etc and he
let us open & sit in the etc, here's a good pic of my pal in the
F430:

I know if I had one of those I would certainly not be leaving it in some dodgy public car park! They are amazing cars ferraris, just magic the way that they never fail to attract attention. Saying that im not convinced they are biult all that well, made by the Italians after all. Companies like Aston Martin produce far better quality machines IMO, although im not saying I wouldnt want one [;)]

Hard to tell from the pic but that's no dodgy public car park, it's very much a private one and my mate was washing it for a high performance dealer in Dublin who he does a lot of valet work for so it was just out of the way of all the cars which were being cleaned at the time.

Hhhmm, disagree re Aston Martin quality.  My boss had the gearbox on his Vanquish replaced 5 times within six months before telling them he didn't want it back.  Massive problems with the flappy paddles  mucking up the whole system.

You would have thought that being able to afford one of those would mean you would also be able to pay for a driving lesson to teach you to park it straight and not sticking out the back of the bay.

Vanquish is not a patch on the DB9 and AMV8 for quality though, still
feels very Ford inside whereas the new ones are works of art...

Oh yes [:)] He had two Ford GT40s, a Carrera GT AND an Enzo a few months back. [:)]

If you like F430/360s, Bentley GTs, and Gallardos, Bournemouth is definetly the place for you...

They guy in there was so cool about us looking around & taking pics
- The only thing he said was about watching the zips on our shorts etc,
but we had a good crack with him - Must have been in there for over an
hour!

He had a Carrera GT in there priced @ ?320,000!

Yeah, its nice to think they are down to earth and not pretentious about it.

I drove past tonight, silver grey Carrera GT is still there next to two DB9s, Bentley GT, and an F430...sweet [:)]

Well it's a Ferrari so it has all those wow factors.  360 to F430 styling,  I think they should of been more creative with the rear end and most elements taken from the Enzo - so predictable.  I loved the rears of the 355 and 360 but this effort looks too fussy.

Mate at work's got a Moderna. Its simply gob smacking in every sense

The noise... oh the noise... <sigh>

They are completely astounding. We think we buy nice cars.. then you
get in a Ferrari and you realise the difference. A car that aint built
to a budget.. its just built to be amazing whatever the cost!![:D]

If I ever had that much wonga to spend on a car... I'd still have an
Aston. IMHO.. just the finest looking cars on the planet! Pure class![:D]
