That TT would look so much better lowered. Just seems to sit extremely high.

YOU CAN'T BE HAPPY CAN YOU?! mad.gif

It's being sold now anyways, I've got a month in which to make the most of it. And make the most of it I shall.

I disagree with Pieface, the car would not look better lowered. But I don't like the looks of TT anyway... I'm no fan of Audi but if I had to drive an Audi it would be an A8.

TT's look great lowered.

Higher MPG = less fun.

I remember some years ago, someone proved that a SUV (possibly a Range Rover) was more environment friendly than a Prius. Anyone remember that?

Prius' are extremely unfriendly due to the manufacturing processes. But Jeremy Clarkson proved a BMW can be more fuel efficient as it doesn't need to use all it's power to get to a higher speed.

I'd like to respectfully update my choice to a '72 Chevy Chevelle SS.



Would drop a 572 Chevy crate motor in it, chevy orange block, posi rear end, Holley double pumper carb, supercharged, and I'd throw a mean blower up through the hood to utilize all that raw Chevy muscle car power.

That's a very pretty little car there, Mattay. It may not be my favorite but I do really like them.
But I wonder if not a 572 motor is a bit heavy for that car. Fun for sure, but how is it gonna handle when it gets that nose heavy.

Handle? American Muscle Cars aren't known for their Handling, in fact the complete opposite.

I know, but some are worse than others. I think that one is one of the worse thanks to the engine. Maybe the picture decive me, but isn't that a small muscle car? Longer wheelbase would help stabilize the bomb.

Third gen Chevelle's were outfitted with a beefier chassis, but obviously never came stock with a 572. So yeah, you'd have to make some changes (i.e., thicker control arms, sway bars, etc).

I'd just keep it for the dragstrip. smile.gif

How much is 572 in the metric system? Around 9 liters? That's the same displacement as a small lorry or medium sized bus motor lol.

Got a new dream car, the Lamborghini Reventon...



Now I just need 1.5 million unsure.gif

In the mean time, I've managed to find a cheap BMW M Sport 330d which I'm picking up on Saturday (it'll pay for itself in a year compared to fuelling/constantly repairing my Focus):



That isn't the actual one but it looks exactly the same. Diesel powah!! /sarcasm

HI BTW!!! biggrin.gif

The Lambo looks like something from Star Wars...

I must say the BMW is VERY pretty, just a bit small for my taste though. smile.gif

Small? ohmy.gif That's about as big as cars get in the UK (apart from 4x4's etc). What sort of car are you thinking?

I'm thinking BMW 7-series. The 5-series is big enough but it leaves something to be desired. That's not a 5-series, is it? I thought they were longer.

The pictured BMW is larger than average, but I think average cars are like small boxes. Even American cars are small now, they're not what they used to be.

Ah luxury cars, yeah there's the 7-series, Audi A8, and other similar cars but I guess it all comes down to what you're using it for. For cruising and general room luxury cars like the 7-series are right at the top of the list, but in real-world terms they're a bit too big to, for example, park in a reasonably-sized space and they cost a fortune to tax and repair (not to mention fuel costs on the higher-end models like the 760Li). I've always looked for a car you wouldn't be too worried about taking to the track or really opening up on motorways.

And yeah, European cars have always been pretty small (I blame the French), and they're getting smaller partly due to smaller engines (don't get me started on emissions tax). Same with Japanese cars. I can't really say about American cars since I don't really know about them, but I think the proper muscle-car died in the 70's.

Anyways, I think it all comes down to personal preference. I'd take an M5 over an M3 any day, but that would be about as big as I could deal with.
