    Going to be ordering an Audi A1 Black Edition in Daytona Grey with the 1.4 185PS engine in the not too distant future.

    I hope to own a Dodge Viper (either a GTS or an SRT10) or/ and a Lamborghini Gallardo in the future. I won't be having kids so the money I save will be going towards cars:lol:

    Saw a TVR Tamora yesterday; now know what I'm going to buy myself on my 25th birthday. :D

    It is awesome, and very reasonably priced too - if I was in the market I'd be making a trip to look at that beast.

    a custom built hot-rod :)

    Stop it. You keep on reminding me of all the crazy projects I have planned in my head.

    This'd be the kinda angle I'd take:

    90's BMW. I still don't have a drivers license at 24 y.o. though.

    That thing is beautiful, I would say though that the suitcase thing on the front kinda ruins it though.

    My dream car changes from time to time, but at the moment its this

    2012 Bentley Continental GT V8

    Perfect combination of pace and luxury - why didn't they give James Bond one of these in Skyfall?!

    Don't think that its beyond the realms of possibility that I could afford one of these in a few years time

    I'd probably look for a dark/midnight blue with cream leather interior

    I don't think Bond would want to be mistaken for a Premier League footballer.

    The only Bentley I want is the Arnage. Just make sure its the 07' model with the improved interior and better mechanical parts. Just a mental car with 6.75 liter engine, even comes with Twin turbos.

    An M3. And I actually would be able to own one in the future if things work out.

    After having a ride in one at way faster than the speed limit, I will say, Do want.

    I'm resurrecting this thread with another dream project I'd like to undertake. Something a little less extreme than the custom hot-rod ideas I have floating around in my head.

    I'm a fan of pick-ups, especially the Aussie Ute style ones, but there aren't any that particularly take my fancy. The old Ford P100 pick-up (which my dad owned a few of for using on the milk round years ago) look OK with Cossie gear, but are looking a little dated now.

    A pick-up would also be perfect for taking my mountain bikes to the trails.

    So the plan: take a BMW E46 330i touring, chop off 2/3s of the roof, weld up the rear doors, and custom fabricate the loading area in the back. I've done a quick photoshop mock-up of what it would look like:

    Fun stuff.
    I have since bought the realistic dream car of mine (took forever - ordered in Dec 2012, arrived in September 2013), and am taking it to a track for a day off hooning, as well as defensive driver training (can't have too much of that, I feel) later this month, the way it looks now. Expect pics.

    I'm reasonably happy with my BMW 630i, but next on the list is certainly a M5, or if I can stretch to it, a M6.

    I've got a 2007 Honda Civic Type S GT. Nice car, but being the bright red sporty number it is, it attracts too much attention and has been keyed six times now.

    Time to embrace my inner beekeeper and get a dull-coloured Skoda Octavia Scout. Perhaps a Yeti.
