2004 BMW X5 4.4i, toledo blue metallic with gray interior.
MG ZS in Trophy Blue, handles like a dream but a tad stiff for the UKs crappy road surface.
I dont have a car... but I used to drive my dads BMW 5 series for 3 years when my parents lived in London with me still... then also his Peugot 306 sport.
now that I visited him in germany I drove his NEW BMW5 series... so fast, even got active sport suspension over 200HP... was driving to my grandma with it... autobahn muhhahahah doing sometimes 210Kmh (=120mph) depeding on traffic but normally it was just short 1 minute burst of full speed then more around the 170kmh mark. very fast. the car feels absuluty solid in those speed and is silent. it has really fat tires too . oh and I drove the A7... that motorway goes though some small mountain all the time so there is loads of ups and down and LOADS of high speed turns that really push you sideways at those speeds.
then at my grandparents I drove my granddads brand new Golf.
ahhh man I will hate my first car after driving only amazing cars....
The MG is nice, but that color is not my fav.

Now that's a car!
Quote from GermanJulian: I drove his NEW BMW5 series
The new model is nice, but I still prefer the previous edition, especially the M5
Quote from Sharkims: So out of all of those, the GTO wins
You should watch "The Punisher" (2004 edition with John Travolta) it shows a very nice GTO, completly black, awesome.
Personally I drive a Peugeot 307, not because i like it but it's a company car so I can't complain. I was glad enough to get the 110HP edition. But i'm more of BMW lover, without the money to afford one
My car 2001 WS6
My lowRider truck with a ford 5.0 302 motor pushin around 400 hp
(old pic's though around last april)
375 knows his american! i like your taste!
i find most luxury SUVs quite weak for the most part (i.e. rx330, bmw x3/x5, fx35/45) although they have speed, very limited off-road and towing capabilites the few that are impressive are the cayenne, toureg and ML55 w/ AMG package. the rx330 is absolutely over-rated and so is the terrible murano. these cars are more like tougher station wagons rather than an SUV
now SUVs, lets talk american and oversized! suburban, escalade, denali xl, navigator, excursion, durango, pathfinder armada, G-WAGONS!, Seqouias and LX 470. those are TRUE suv's they absoutely conquer most any terrain.
Heres my friends, john hartman's
Or you an go with bart's 92 bronco2
I don't drive
man i cant date any girls without having a car now, i just feel so ghetto
edit- nice suvs there, the new bronco looks terrible god saw it at the autoshow and wanted to hurl! funny the was like stopped i think the same yr as OJ simpson's car chase WITH HIS BRONCO lol
Solid Snake, you're right those that you mentioned are not for a real Off-Road driving, it's just like a big family car to me, i also like a few American made 4x4's but i cannot maintain it myself, no dealer around where i live. anyway, let see you will like my other car a two-wheel drives small car.. 2004 or 2005 MB CLK 200 Kompressor Cabriolet (non AMG) i ordered black but not sure what colour in side the car that i'll get. i'll see it in a few months.
it changes the meaning of SUV to be utterly meaningless
call it a sport luxury wagon, or as chrysler likes to call the pacifica the sport tourer which i think is very suitable
BMW called it xDrive, all-wheel drives, but it' not a true SUVs really., i alway say let take the big one. so it's a big car for me.
xDrive varies torque between the wheels, dont get me wrong x5 fully loaded and maybe tuned is insane, but its over-rated.
well it's a very fun to drive on most types of the road but i have no doubt it's being a beter car for off-road driving than a real 4X4s that made for driving off-road truly. not sure what you mean about it's over-rated.
well, looks like theres a very good chance im ditching that old 1990 pontiac this weekend.
im looking at a wrecked 1997 Camaro RS right now, with very minmal damage. 5spd manual, black, leather interior, fully loaded. its not the Z28 with T-tops ive been looking for, but the price is definatly right. sunday night is when ill know if i do get it.
Solid Snake, i think i understand what you were saying now, i think they call or class the car as a SUV has something to do with it looks too, like the Volvo XC90, i think they also class it as a SUV, and the XC70 series will be like a "sport luxury wagon' i think. but i don't know much about that. lol.
maybe I should aim to "win" for the slowest/worst maintained car?
Fiat126p... and yes I can break city speed limit... if I try hard
xc90 is a very solid car, but i mean lets take it into jeep territory and see how long it survives
