    I can't believe there isn't a car thread here, I searched and couldn't find a thing.

    Along with Guitars and Gear, Cars are one of my loves, and I am sure I am not the only one here who feels that way, even though I have much more gear than I do cars, seeing as how I only have one haha.

    Anyways, share what you got, what you want to get and are saving up for, what you want and will probably never haver, rumors etcetc.

    Anything car related goes in this thread so let us make this thread as awesome as it deserves to be!

    There were a few dedicated threads, the last one being in 2010.

    Still... I still want a Nissan GT-R.

    Until then, my 2000 Corolla will do until I run it to the ground. :lol:

    Most of the cars I want are BMWs. If someone buys me a new 750Li or M6, I'll return the favor by giving them a ride in it. :D

    Yeah dude, you can't go wrong with a BMW. Having test drove a bunch of them alongside a bunch of other cars I have to say I understand why they have the reputation of being "driver's cars". The way those things feel on the road just puts the silliest grin on my face, especially the E9x M3! So good.

    With all of that said however, the next car I buy will be a GT-R. I don't know when that will be, but that is one of my dream cars and I will have it someday, that is all that I know haha. I have been looking at them for the last year or so and watching the prices on the used market actually INCREASE.

    They are fucking investments haha.

    I used to be a massive BMW fan, as well as owner. To be honest, I think their styling has been hit or miss since the e36 days. I'm also not a fan of how the models have gotten progressively larger. I do like the 1 series though, if I had lots of cash to blow I'd consider a 135i.

    I'm into Jaguars at the moment. My xj6 makes my old 3 series seem awful and cheap. The bimmer had lots of plastic trim whereas the Jag has burled walnut. I have no idea what I'm going to do when I need a new car because I probably won't be able to afford something that will live up to the current standard, haha.

    Guess that explains this. :D

    I just realized I might get bored with a garage full of BMWs, so I should probably throw in a 911 Turbo S or two to mix things up. I guess the 3.1 second 0-60 time is good enough for the occasional trip to Wal-Mart. :spock:

    Currently drive a Civic.

    I have a thing for Audi, BMW, and Infiniti.

    If I had 400k to blow a Lexus LFA would be my choice. I don't realistically see that ever happening(even on the used arket), but I could see me in a position to have a Nissan GTR some day.

    I can't help but agree with Jeremy Clarkson about Porsche.

    I don't drive yet but I'm old enough to now, hoping to start learning soon...

    My first car will probably have to be something really shit (I think the term you have in America is "sub-compact" - that's what most people over here start out in because insurance is very, very unkind to 17-year-olds) but once I've got a little more experience I'd love something like a Ford Puma:

    [​IMG]

    They look cool and they're supposed to be really fun to drive... not very big for hauling gear around but you can always fold the back seats down.

    And you can pick them up for under £1000 over here so...

    Japanese high-performance stuff is always really cool too...

    I love those new GT-Rs that Bulb was talking about, and the Honda NSX is said to be wonderful.
    And don't get me started on the '91-onwards Mazda RX-7 :drool:

    A used car dealer up the road from me is selling an R32 Skyline at the moment...

    Currently driving a 2005 RSX-S and I really don't care to upgrade at the moment.

    If I did, it'd be an old school BMW M3, though. I really liked those kind of squared looking ones from the mid 90s.

    Haha no that's to fund Camera equipment because Photography has become a rather expensive hobby as well. I need to stop getting into expensive things, I wish I were into cheaper things than Gear, Cars and Photography haha.

    APR tuned, heading to Watkins Glen next weekend to run time trials with some race pads and tires, no other mods. It will be interesting to see how I fare against the Corvettes.
