Yup. A few years ago I set a budget for a 'fun' car and looked at Aston, Porsche, Ferrari, Lambo, Ford GT, etc. I spent a fraction of it on a 6 year old Maserati as once I realised I could afford to buy one of those cars, I really didn't want one.
A few years later we tested a Gallardo. A manual gearbox, and orange. Very very orange. When we got back I asked the salesman what he would give us part-ex on the Maserati. MrsF said "You can have it if you want, but we're keeping that one". She knew I wouldn't want 2 money pits, so we never got one.
