Skillie:
timbosan: Actually, I DO have a car I would like:

AMG GLA45 Edition 1 - The only SUV I have seen that I like:






I prefer mine without the "Edition 1" styling - getting good fuel economy too - 7.5l/100km 


I actually like the styling difference on the Edition 1 models, adds something to differentiate it from the "normal" AMG SLA45.

Fuel economy? I am more interested in the performance - 0 to 100 in 4.8 seconds is quick for a vehicle this size.

Banana?

I have one of these:



That is a stock picture (from Wikipedia), so obviously mine is RH drive.

2007 Mazdaspeed Axela. 2.3Turbo, 6 Speed Manual. I like it, goes well, and fast.

My dream car for a while was an RS Audi (any flavor, but preferably an sedan or coupe). Not so sure on Audi now though, so am re-assessing the dream. I like the new Jaguars, a lot, and the new Ford Mustang V8 looks OK too (not sure how it drives).

Another Audi driver here cool. The blue A3 is mine and the silver A4 is my wife's.


My dream car would have to be an RS4 Avant.

Jeremy Clarkson said in a review of this car, it was like an Ax Murderer trying to kill him the entire time he drove it. It's a nice car, but I'd not buy one. Too much power for the Chassis to deal with.

Considering you can't really let it go here - would you really notice if it had too much power?

Based on that, why would you buy one then?

Most cars that do over 150KM/h can't really be "let go" here.

Exactly, and yet they're still bought.    Just cos you can't legally get it up to top speed is not a reason not to buy it.
