    I think I'd go with the F430 Spider 6 speed...but everyone raves about how amazing the 458 is.

    599, however, is a must for me either way.

    Since the 488 is allegedly the same price as a 458, I'd go for a 488 ;)
    And yes the 599 is impressive (it was actually my previous car...)

    I have a 488 Spider and I’m picking up a new to me 10 599 HGTE on Wednesday.
    I think it’s the best combo.
    Super excited to get this beautiful GT cruiser.

    Toss up between a 458 and 430 Scuderia for me. Probably best for you to drive all of these first to see what you think.

    Scuderia. 599 is already a killer sports car and a great GT. But the Scuderia would be for when you want that insanely raw Ferrari experience

    I would try the Scud.. for certain.. . it is the polar opposite of the 599 in my mind...rough and beautiful

    No love for the F430 with a manual transmission

    I think if the poll gives you a free option on the Scud, it's hard to pic the regular F430

    I agree, none of those. I would go for a convertible.

    I just bought a 599. My other car is a manual 360. I’m not sure I could give up the 360. I’ve never driven a manual 430 so I can’t compare the two.

    When I bought my 599 I seriously thought I would keep the 360. After a few months I sold it, with a bit of trepidation. It was only a couple of weeks before I never looked back. As much as I liked the 360 I wouldn't buy one again.

    I’d go with a stick v8 - 355, 360 or 430.

    I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens with me, though I can’t imagine not having a gated shifter in the garage. The only thing I’ve really found wanting with the 360 is breaking power. The 599 is much less agile. It has other attributes that I really enjoy though. The steering in the 360 is more direct, and the car has less body roll. The 599 is worlds faster, and the interior is a wonderful place to be in. The cars are vastly different experiences. I might feel differently if I had an F1 360.
