I still cant get my head around SUVs. If you want a 4 wheel drive luxury car with loads of luggage space that pulls like a train, you buy a RS6. In this price bracket at least. The only one I can really understand is the Range Rover, and that' only because if you want a luxury car to drive over a field, it fits the bill.

Get someone to drive either Snake Pass (A57 between Sheffield and Glossop) or Cat 'n' Fiddle (A53, A54 and A537 between Buxton and Macclesfield) in England. Both have a sheep hazard, which always adds to the mix and a each has a good pub.

Rover 75 V8? If only they put the proper cylinder heads on it.

@Speedhunters_Bryn @Acc Someone needs to tell Audi how to do this, then maybe they can start putting engines where they are supposed to be. Not hanging off the front of the chassis like a Morgan three wheeler.

Being designed and built by the original model's manufacturer. Doesn't matter if it shares nothing but shape in common.

@Brad_S There are plenty of cheaper options on the market (and I'm not talking about spring chops). You just get a lower grade product. You definitely get what you pay for with things like dampers.

Is that a leather covered trunk? I need to get on the case, need to expand my side pods to fit some audio equipment.

You would have to trade it in for a 330d first, then use the money left to buy some wheels and wrap.

I don't agree with the S badge on the grill. The grill mod is fine but leaving the S badge on it is no better than sticking a Type R badge on a D14 Civic or fitting an intercooler behind the grill to give the impression of a turbo setup. Its subtle but its still 'rice'. Or 'sausage' in this case.
Also S-Line and S are two different things entirely. S-Line cars say S-line on the grill. This just says S.
Have Toyota got so far out of touch with developing sports cars that they need a more experienced manufacturer to hold their hand these days?

@ComJive Those days of manufacturers being competitive 'to prove they were the best' has long gone unfortunately.
There should be a rule set by the FIA that to use a manufacturers name, the car must be built inside the manufacturers plant by a team of engineers who have x number of years experience designing road cars. Modern race teams have no soul.

That would be amazing but given the effort to rework it into a 2L N/A (which I don't recall Nissan having a good one) or a 1.6T makes running a 1.6T Juke a much more sensible option.
Cramming a R35 into the small engine restrictions of the FIA rules would probably ruin the car as a whole and leave it uncompetitive.

@speedhunters_dino That's awesome. Still, surely its life could be prolonged by not having it drag along the floor.

That Skyline must get through a few tow rings.
Actually you're probably still correct.
