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).

My dream car would have to be an RS4 Avant.

davidcole: Also for a more family friendly dream machines I'd get an RS6, or a Shooting Brake C63 AMG



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.
