    Cant seem to find this topic, I know it was here, mabye became redundant?

    Anyway, this is my 'seen' thread.
    The supercars were out in Richmond today, countless Bentley Continentals, hard and soft-tops, x2 Lamborghini Gallardo Spiders on the main street, one yellow one orange (by M&S), a Ferrari F430 coupe on the green, this was grey, silverstone i think, with nero interior 05 reg, Aston Martin V8 Vantage on the green, grey that was. I was in one of my F430 Spiders.

    Yes, Richmond Surrey, I am often there as I have a home in Petersham, and I enjoy a drink near the river on a sunny day, and I agree, it seemed an exceptional day for 'exotic spotting' today. Must be the sun.

    My girlfriend had a Gallardo Spider, did not enjoy the E-Gear at low speeds, especially when parking, and for somebody who spends a large proportion of her time in central London, parking can be a nightmare. I have always had 2 430's, usually one coupe and a spider, however she wanted a Spider for daily use, as did I, so I px'd the coupe for another spider. Her is much nicer with the challenge grille.

    There are a few pictures of the Enzo floating around, it is just another Rosso on Nero, completly standard.

    Im hoping to get something new in the next year or so. Already owned a Gallardo Spyder very briefly and really enjoyed it. It was an e-gear. Im not expert on the 430, but i just like the G Spyder better as a package. Im still not a fan of the looks of the 430, especially the back. I change my mind all the time on what i might favour, but i think a Manual G Spyder would be nice.

    We shall see.

    Never see an Enzo be defined as 'completely standard' before ! ha ha

    Not an Fcar but worth a mention, saw my first Carrera GT 'on the road' in Brighton a few weeks back. Bright yellow, guessing there can't be too many in the country in that colour? The chap driving saw us all looking at it from the football pitch next to the road (just off the roundabout at the end of London Road), slowed down and then briefly stamped on the loud pedal, that V10 makes the most incredible noise.
