    488 GTB, as a daily I switch between 997.2 4S Covertible and a BMW M850i Gran Coupe. Honestly, right now I prefer the (new) BMW over the F car.

    Looks ok, but feel the design is a bit soft… like the new G wagons…soft.
    For truck duty I like the old style G’s

    My 991.2 GT3 Manual is my local daily, and for work trips across SoCal I’ll take my Defender 110.

    If I’m taking a super long trips for want to fly under the radar I’ll hijack the 2017 Manual Transmission Toyota Corolla SE that was once my first car and I have since gifted to my younger sister :D

    Interesting you went with the CLS considering the AMG GT 4 Door. Was that also a contender?

    Traded my 2018 Race Red SuperCab Raptor for a black 2020 SuperCab Raptor. Last of the SuperCab Raptors. The '19/'20 Raptors have active suspension, and it's way better. This one also has every possible option but the Power Moon Roof. The B&O sound system is awesome, and there's carbon fiber everywhere. I may get a gen three SuperCrew, but I'll never sell this one.

    Money. I had the 505 hp Alfa Quad Giulia, then then the E43, but crappy brakes, so CLS550. I had the Panamera , it was great, fast and fun, but just waaayyyyy too big , started leaving it home all the time and driving the Abarth. I've had 30 Mercedes and they are really let down the past 15 years quality wise. let's just say I don't want AMG anything. Best sedan is by far the Porsche. The GT is just super ugly to me. But Looked at one with red inside..... nice, but you lose your rear end in two years it will drop about $50,000.

    Great for daily driving on the streets and very capable on the track.
    I am in love with this thing. Best daily I ever had. It is fast, well built and sporty yet comfortable.

    Last time I want to Costco, I parked way away from the other cars, only to come out later and find another car parked reght next to me away from all the other vehicles in the lot. Sooooooooo I don't go to Costco often and not take any "special " cars there.

    That's funny. I think if I ever see an exotic car parked far away from everyone else and I am in an old beater, I will not only park next to it, but REALLY close. :D

    That happens anywhere. Only to exotics or high end cars. People are *******s and do it on purpose

    The Alpina B7 is a magical daily.
    Alpina did wonders to the suspension,engine,sound, and interior luxury.
    600hp with a living room back seat.
    My wife loves her 991.1 turbo S with 35k miles so far. The others get about 3k miles a year
