Plus you can't enjoy those cars unless you take it to the track, which probably 1% of owners do. I consider there to be a "sweet spot" with cars. Meaning a group factored on price, performance and fun; M3, RS5, 911, C63..
I totally agree and that's why most exotics have such low mileages. Dead on with the "sweet spot" cars.
