£110k+ is everyday for you? lol

But if i were to chose a Performance open top car, I would head more towards Mercedes, But id rather have something else then these 2.

Now this is a battle of everyday sports cars. I think the Ferrari has an edge when it comes to performance. But the Merc might be more comfortable. It might just be more stylish too cus it looks lower and wider. Someone buy me both?
