Which new car next?

I can make up my mind guys and every car I have in mind is pretty much the opposite to each other lol

So the options are:

Range Rover Sport TD6 SE
BMW 335i Coupe (Twin Turbo 300bhp woohoo! lol)
Porsche Cayman 2.7

Which one you think guys? Or any other suggestions to confuse me further.... hehe :thumbsup:

i am in between the range rover and the porsche also. not an easy decision.

the porsche would be fun (im looking at the cayman S) and very sleek to look at. The RR is nice to look at also- and the golf clubs along with a few other sets would fit easily into the boot but...... you cant through it about like you could the porsche.

what do you drive just now? I have a TT and previous to that I had a couple of BMW coupe's. Im then thinking that I have done the sports/coupe cars and that a 4x4 would be a bit different!

the RR will really annoy you if you want to go fast.

I know it's such a hard choice. The Porcshe looks amazing, and would be pretty sporty. Only has 2 seats though, and like you mentioned above, a lack of space!

The Range also looks amazing (but in a very different way) but would be slow as hell but has the space and it comes with a lot better spec standard. I decieded to go for an SE over an S.

I imagine they wouold both cost about the same to run and service.

The only thing swinging it for me at the moment is insurance. As I'm only 21 and the Range is quite a bit cheaper to insure.

Currently driving a MK5 Golf GTI turbo (chipped to 250bhp) so won't be much fun going from that to a Range regarding speed anyway.

Could be a coin flip desicion? :D

yeah do pretty much. to buy i costed them up at the same- around £50k eash after all the extras had been fitted to both.

MPG are around the same. even the top range diesel engine for the RR only returns something around 19miles per gallon- due to the fact that it weighs about 3 ton!!!

Servicing costs are around the same also- although with the RR the service interviles are longer- so the Prosche would cost more in the long run

I have had a few nice cars, including M3 CSL's, S4's, 535d dms tuned etc. But the best all rounder was the 335i, get it tuned, 380bhp and a ***** load of torque, will do 0-60mph quicker than just about anything else on the road, 4.4 seconds, and still return 25-35mpg all day long.

You can get 4 adults in, and it is fairly sublte, unlike the Porker, this may not be a problem for you though.

Depends what you want from a car?? The RR Sport is nice, but you need the V8 TD as the 2.7 is slow as ****, and the Supercharged one will be lucky to see double figures on the consumption. Even teh TD V8 is pretty horrific, mate has just done 20k miles in his and it is showing 14mpg, his older V6 was showing 18mpg.

The E92 coupe is great looking imho.....

Oh, buy it 3 months old, mine was £42650 list and I paid £34k for it with all the toys, this was an M-Sport Touring though, but coupes are pretty much the same.

Is that really true??

My 911 only requires a service once every 2 years or 20k miles so I assumed that the Cayman would be the same?

What are the intervals on the RR?

It's a surprising dilemma that you have - not many people have to decide between a sports coupe and a 4x4!

I take it this is following on from the IT contracting thread you had in GC where you were inquiring about claiming VAT back if you leased a car.

If you are 21 I dont think you will be able to lease such expensive cars. I was under the impression that you had to be over 25, maybe even 30.

Yep, it is. And it's fine. It's only renting cars like these you have to be 25+. If you're leasing it, it's fine as you have to find the insurance etc.
 
Thanks for the feedback guys! Made up my mind on the 335i! Amazing car, test drove on at the weekend. Can only imagine what it's like when chipped :devil:
