What Should My Next Car Be?

Post by phunkydude » Tue Aug 20, 2013 11:07 am

I thought i can leave the car scene and settle down for a boring family car as a daily.
But i starts to hesitate/2nd guess my decision the moment i handed over the keys of my FTO, watching it scraping down my driveway and get driven off.

Would like to hear your thoughts to see if anyone else had the same feeling before. :eye:

The JDM scene is full of colossal tossers, I'm going for the wolf in sheeps clothing look next time. Something a bit more mature like a GT Liberty or a RS4 Audi.

I would say Golf R32 would be my next thing to move on to ...

But doubt that will happen .. I think I only want to stick with 2 cars ... And sure as sh*t, I won't be selling the Evo ...
I just had to add it ......

Parents had a GT Liberty, did not feel that quick, but was very nice inside, massive restriction of an exhaust though, if it had a bigger one probably would of opened up a lot.

Don't really like the new ones though.

More this style.

Yeah the B.4..

Oh & don't worry about 'exhaust restrictions' and the like lol, It'd get the Bennoz horsepower treatment. Exhaust, intake, intercooler, wind up the boost & Haltech.. in that order lol

I like how this turned in to a self ownership thread instead of for the poor O.P bugger. :lol:

I've been having similar thoughts and I've been strongly considering a Toyota Aurion for my future car...

Huge on the inside (like a TARDIS really), can look really sleep if you want it to, fuel efficient (9.5L per 100km or something) AND the motor's pretty damn quick as well.
