Problems You'd Like to Have?

What Costs More To Maintain Per Year, a Veryron or a Private Jet?

Perhaps on a per-mile basis, the jet is more efficient. But what about annually? Do you think a jet is cheaper than a Veyron to run?

Buying new rubber for the Veyron will produce similarly heart-freezing bills, a set of four tyres costing 23,500, in part because they have to be capable of 253mph, more than 100mph faster than Concorde’s landing speed.

Worse news still is that at every fourth tyre change the Veyron’s rims must be stress tested for cracks – a sensible precaution in a car this fast – and replaced if they are found wanting at a cost of 7050 per corner.

As per the title....i'd like to have a bunch of Mercedes and have the problem of choosing which one to drive every day. Then of course you would have the related problem of getting the keys mixed up
