+100, but there are exceptions. Some needs for better things are ok, i call it "drive" or "motivation"

However, failing to value what you already have, no matter if you wished for better or not, is not good.

i'd rather have an LP640 Lamborghini anyways......ferrari 599 is ok. Sure ferrari's handle great, sounds great, and look sleek. But Lamborghini is what does it for me, much edgier and more aggressive then a ferrari

It would be an addition, rather than a swap. If you need to trade in your bimmer for a Ferrari or any exotic, then you really can't afford it (if it's a new/barely used exotic).

355s sound so good though, that would be a trade in that's worth it.

My step father went from an M6 to this bad boy.. 2004 Ferrari 575 Superamerica. $300,000 later.. and he's still stuck with a "rag top" (although the less then 10 second hard top drop is pretty quick), and who can argue with 540bhp.
