Also one thing to note would be a good thing if the car is also relatively easy to work on. Hence the pre 2010 or so preference. Everything after that seems to be an electronics nightmare.

Viper GTs is also a good one. But something about it is a bit too bruteish
What are manual 612s going for?

Max whatever you decide buy the nicest one you can. Pay more up front and cry once, versus paying less up front and crying every time you need to dump more money into it.

Wonder what the price is on this thing.

It's ridiculously tempting if it's under $80k

Manual R8s are still hovering 80-100k for the later 1st gen.

I’m sort of curious about convertible values... while I think the idea of one is great as this would be a total toy.

Is it essentially like getting the “automatic” because .2 seconds 0-60 makes a difference in the street and you will be denied Valhalla?!

Also P cars sound pretty bad in the turbo trim, would love some “theater”. I have been looking at the R8s for a bit of time, but can’t really figure out the details. There are “2” generations, but some are more desirable than others. First gen has a really dated interior it seems, and that atrocious single clutch auto.

Does the 2nd gen come with manual ? In the V10 ?

911 Cabs don't seem to keep their value as much as the hard top equivalents.

Better price
At 30k I’m expecting original owner and a 3” stack of maintenance records from the local dealership, with Zillspec maintenance at full retail.

Speaking of merc, how’s the daughters sled holding up?

I helped my buddy buy a 2016 e350 with 80k miles he has since put, 45k miles on it (2 years). No issues at all and I did his spark plugs.... which wasn’t super hard the other day as well air and cabin filters. $1700 service for $80
The 2006 MBZ has gone from 88K to 99K without a hitch. Two oil changes, some headlight bulbs and I put new shocks and tires on it when I bought it. It sits around a lot during the VID. We took a road trip in it to the Midwest where it performed like a champ. I view the E 350 Sport with solid maintenance history and low miles as an intelligent way to roll in a nice, classy sedan that you can expect 250K miles out of for less than $20K. More expensive versions will lure you in with powah (E550 has a N/A 382 hp V8 and doesn't cost much more) , but they all come with air suspension and other shit that breaks.

I brought these up once and was almost drummed out of the forum for liking a Ferrari with the "engine in the wrong place." I have never heard any tale of their ease of maintenance (relatively speaking) until this morning.

Could be a good way in cheap, but resale will be difficult.
