    I'm almost tempted to sell my BMW for a 3000GT.

    Gorgeous, the 159 is a beautiful car, and the V6-equipped ones are heavenly. There was a red sportwagon with the Q4 and V6 up the road from me for a couple of years, with tan interior. Certainly brightened up the commute!

    That would be a very, very brave thing to do. The 3000GT is a ruinous harbinger of b0rk.

    Hmmm.. Well, these days. Mk6 Escort Cossie, Capri 3000GT, and a Mustang of some version. Ideally 69 Fastback, but that might need a few more pay rises..

    I already have the Mk1 Focus RS, so that's one of four ticked off!

    My ultimate car to own would be a Dodge Viper I just love the way they look.

    Alfa 4C or Cayman S it's a tough call between those two for cars I could afford.

    Subaru Impreza WRX wagon, bug eye or older would be amazing. Had a Mk1 Legacy RS for a banger rally and I need another subaru in my life.

    Uber-wafter, e.g. RR Ghost

    Fair weather toy, exotic enough to be emotive, but not so exotic as it falls to bits e.g. Aston, R8

    G-Wagen for Mrs_Tad. Just waiting for it to be a sensible proposition to swap her current car (which currently represents fairly cost-free motoring, until it starts to break)

    I really do, can't get enough of it. I can't imagine going back to anything else for a daily driver.

    I look at the M, S, RSes and gaggle of Porsches (that's the collective name, right?) in the office car park in think they're all mental.

    The V6 is actually even cheaper than the normal diesel ones. The running costs are pretty idiotic which is why they are so cheap. I looked for a Q4 for ages before buying mine but they are so rare for the 2.4 dieael...

    I have done the DPF removal and remap and it now kicking 250bhp. Not far off the V6 and can do 42mpg on the motorway. I am well chuffed...

    I'd like a Evo 9, then moving on a Tesla of some sort.

    This is going to sound weird, but...

    A 4 door Mitsubishi Fuso cab over with a diesel engine and a short shop body.

    The idea is to have a vehicle that can comfortably carry 5 people and 4 kayaks plus all the requisite gear, can tow a trailer and has a space for changing into wetsuits or that a couple people could sleep in. After a couple of years of thinking about it this is the best solution we've come up with.

    Waft for daily, mental for weekend imo. The two opposites provide a wonderful juxtaposition, and the benefits of each seem more mad when you do have them.

    Man maths justification for buying a Caterham R300 on top of the 7'er. :D
    I'd give up 10mpg for the noise, that V6 is just heaven. Even the fantastic GM 2.4 can't compete with that.

    I'm currently saving for a mk7 golf gti. I'm totally smitten by them. Abit bloody expensive for what they are though. Think I'm going to be saving for some time.

    Hmm, I have a few.

    Realistic:
    Mitsubishi Starion
    Subaru SVX
    Toyota Celica Supra aka MKII Supra
    Nissan 200SX S14 (save it from the drifters)
    TVR S2 290

    Slightly unrealistic:
    MX5 with a LSx swap
    1st Gen Camaro
    Pontiac Transam WS6
    Audi RS2
    Renault Alpine A610

    Not realistic in the slightest:
    Nissan Skyline R34 GTR
    Plymouth Roadrunner Superbird
    The Corvette in my avatar

    Stunning car!

    Here's mine [​IMG]

    Not quite as striking as the red but stromboli grey is really nice and subtle in person :) It's somewhat of a compromise, being the 1.9 jtdm lusso.. would've loved the 2.4 ti (could never have justified the running costs of the petrol engines, especially the V6 lol) but I've already done 20,000 miles since May and replaced the rear tyres with the fronts due soon.

    Do love her though!
