agree that is fecking gross! And when they put on a UK number plate it's even worse!

For some reason the pic I posted looks stunning methinks.....must be the dark colour

edit..my pic is the M3 Competition

come on you gotta love tech sometimes

The new M3 is certainly well equipped. In addition to the usual suite of driver safety aids, there’s also M Drive Professional which includes a lap timer, driving analysis coach, data recorder and – I kid you not – an M Drift Analyser to rate your skids. It’s a tough marker. A huge drift through Quarry corner at Castle Combe – 160 yards at 24 degrees of oversteer, according to the car – was rated four stars.

That M3 competition is a nice car for £80,000. Stick with my MX5 for now I think.

yeah bloody stupid price....I make a few shekels and I start getting carried away xD I drove an MX5 once, then I nearly bought a brand new one from Japan, that was when they stopped doing the pop up lights and I really like the look of the latest one

I always fancied a Caterham 7 or a kit type thing.....think I should just stick with my push bikes and a boring Civic :)

There's really nothing quite like a 7.  Extraordinarily nice to drive.

I had an MX5, one of the old ones. Lovely motor back in the day. Then had a Elise for a short time, wow what a driver that was. Didnt really like the sound of the old rover engine though, but the driving, it was another level from the MX5. When the crypto is finally mooned, i quite fancy an R8 (V10 of course )

You will like this, Connaught 2.0 Litre 10,000 RPM V10 going into an MX5.

My 2010 M3 had little robotic hands that used to come out of the seat and feed you the top of the seatbelt so you didn't have to arch your body all the way to the right to grab it. I've not seen them on any of my BMW cars since, it was inspired. Plus carpet in the door pockets, to prevent things rattling. Again not seen that since, I think BMW are going downhill and their heydey was fifteen years ago. Best BMW I've ever had is the old V8 M3.

Bet you can get an E92 for less than ten grand now.

I got mine for £45k odd, brand new. It's ridiculous how they've doubled in price in 11 years but nobody seems to care.

I think I already have my fantasy garage.

1990 MX-5

1994 Lancia Delta Evo2

2004 R53 Mini Cooper S.

1 of each 

Rear wheel drive, four wheel drive and front wheel drive.

Normally aspirated, turbocharged and supercharged.

I like that, although your mx5 is a bit new for me.....

I have never driven one, but I fancy a Gallo fly F355 spider, manual gearbox. 

It's the popuplights. That do it for me really.

Mines an April car, 1st batch.

I've driven two of those.

Trans Am, gave up trying to keep it in one lane, easier to just work the indicators as it changed direction of its own accord.

Otherwise ok unless you tried to do anything ambitious, like stop, or go round corners.

Aston Martin, fastest transit van I've ever driven.

@Sucralose Ray Leonarddude those cars are fecking revolting! Lardy as fuck too, you'll be in the nearest ditch next time you take a corner at speed xD

Er, King Burt never struggled when Smokey chased him, i'd have rockets and ski's built into the Aston and i think you will find that particular Lambo has ample air bags if you know what i mean, nudge nudge wink wink ;-)

Besides, i'm a cruiser rather than speed demon. The M62 in rush hour does that to you.

My mates dad had the v8 vantage. I remember sitting in the front seat and the front of the car lifting as he accelerated. Impressive at the time but probably due to crap suspension.

Bit late to this thread but hopefully still time to share 3 of my dream cars.

You wouldn't want a Mark 2 Jaguar. You need the S-Type with the independent suspension, as seen on the Sweeney, escaping a Ford Granada, every episode.

But what would you use to take rubbish down the dump?

That's why all fantasy garages should have a Ford Transit. 

(Or perhaps Land Rover, G-Wagen or Pinzgauer).

don't like old cars.....apparently you only need 3 cylinders nowadays too :P

Limited edition, trying to convince myself I like the blue color.....I think it looks like a 'Porsche blue' o.O

don't like anything without dark wheels either :)

NB forgot I've already got an A110S in the garage so I might have to get rid of the Cayman xD
