    Gotta love that Knight Rider, TT. Nothing like some Gas Guzzlers! I like the look of the old Ford Mustang (as in, 'Bullitt' era)

    +: I could never see myself in one of those pickup trucks they all have.. it'd just look wrong on so many levels.

    The turbo V6 is faster anyway and has better balance than the 8, the only thing you get with the 8 is a better sound and a lesser car. They are still somewhat primitive from an automotive point of view though.

    Solely from a noise POV get an HSV, you get a very full helping of the V8 sound and feel (infrasound). I prefer my cars to handle though hence my car will still beat one in most conditions that are not a straight line with a run up.

    The V6 sounds alright to and are a much more advanced engine block that puts out a good bit of kick. I think FPV does a Typhoon which is the 8 supercharged and must sound epic but they had a nasty habit of eating gearboxes and driveshafts along with anything in their path.

    1966 Mustang is the only car that could tempt me away from my Z3.

    Never mind the muscle, feel the Cool.

    no vauxhalls (which is a shame as you can get the hsv's over here as vxr vauxhalls) but every vauxhall ive driven has ranged from bad to dire

    Still in my BMW 123d M-Sport - 3 years now (longest I've ever owned a car) and I'm still, just, 29!
    Other than the initial outlay the running costs have been great, serviced by a mate who is a police mechanic.

    Would love to trade up to a nice Jaguar XF, maybe in another year :-p
