Since the old thread got lost, I thought it was time to launch a new version of the famous "What car do you drive?" thread. To give it a bit more structure, I suggest (optionally) including some information:

I'll kick off in the next post.

MAKE: Mitsubishi
MODEL: Evolution X MR
YEAR: 2008

LIKES:
Gets up to speed quick, handles great, looks the part (yet still is professional), best seats ever

DISLIKES:
Little bit heavy, satnav/music interface is not so flash compared to Germans, fuel/insurance costs, speeding tickets

FUN FACT/OTHER/MODLIST:
Got it for a steal during the GFC in 2009 since the 08 cars were piling up. Mods include HKS Hi-Power catback exhaust, Injen short-ram intake + Upper intercooler piping kit upgrade, upgraded horn (factory one was weak!), Pivot 3Drive throttle controller, GReddy Informeter Touch, Rockford Fosgate subwoofer/amplifier, RA OEM tail lights, various stickers. Recently got it custom tuned at MRT.

PLANS FOR FUTURE:
Boost gauge - just ordered an AEM 30-4406.
Probably going to hold off doing anything else since the next mod will have to be substantial and I'd probably rather buy something else. Who knows, maybe I'll go luxury next :S

MAKE: Peugeot

MODEL: 206CC

YEAR: 2004

LIKES: Its matching interior, looks, it's not powerful but it's still a lot of fun to drive, good fuel consumption, extremely comfortable seats, parking is an absolute breeze, great handling, a lot more boot space than you'd think

DISLIKES: The driving position took a little while to get used to but it's alright now, some days I just wish I had 4 doors, can lack power in the low rev range, being a 4 seater with only 2 doors means the doors are really long and that can get annoying in carparks, all other problems associated with the fact it's a Euro :p

FUN FACT/OTHER/MODLIST: The windscreen wipers are backwards, speedo starts at 10km/hr, it's got a Ferrari roof mechanism and a Porsche tiptronic gearbox system, I replaced the stock black plastic hoops with chrome Toyosports ones and had mudflaps fitted (if that can count as a mod lol), and the previous owner put 16 inch ROH International alloys on it

PLANS FOR FUTURE: None really

haha it's none of the above. It's definitely not what you expect.

Anyway I'll wait until I get it before I post it up :) Not planning to mod this one much though.
