    unfortunately i writ my baby off while driving on the motorway. the damage is pretty bad and would probably cost 2k to fix, im thinking I should just sell it to the mechanic at the garage instead of waiting to get it fixed that would take months.

    Im thinking to get a BMW Z4 Coupe or a Alfa Romeo Brera, what do you guys think? What cars do you guys own

    Heres my nissan 350z

    That sucks - what year was it/what's the current value of it?

    If you're into sports cars, try getting a Mustang :)

    you could get a g35 or something of that since im guessing your a 350z type of guy you'd probably want something comfy and somewhat fast.
    i drive a gtr and much rather have gotten a lambo or r8, gtr's just don't hold their value.

    From England, London. It was a 05 Plate, Imported from Japan in 2008. only had 49,000 Miles on the clock.
    My area is pretty rough if they see me driving an R8 id have the hoodrats after me, the amount of money I had to splash out because people use to key it, reverse into it etc. People here cant drive for shit.

    I like mustangs but there hard to find in London, and if I imported 1 no one will insure me on it, im only 24 and insurance here is a rip off. to insure the 350z on a third party fire and theft policy I was paying £2400 a year. and the petrol here isn't a cheap either, Unleaded petrol cost £1.44 per litre.

    That's one of the cars I've always dreamt of owning, and one day it will be mine. Must have been a pretty sad day for you.

    That sucks man, hopefully the insurance covers the pain. I had one of these five years ago in bright red. Like yours she was a Japanese import.really cool looking car but they are not much fun to drive, lazy V6 only comes to life when you really rev it hard and the amount of plastic inside gets depressing after a while. I chopped mine in for a murano for the wife.

    I've had 3.0 alfas as well and that is an incredible engine if you find the right car.

    My choice would be a BMW but not a Z4 I would get a 3 series coupe. 325 is sweet 335 has almost M3 performance. If you do big mileage you would be amazed at the torque in the 330 and 335 diesels.

    I really like the Alfa Brera, but people are telling me there very unreliable and have alot of problems. I like the 3 series but there are way to common up here, the reason I sold my 1 series last year. I wouldn't mind the 535 Though. I really need to look for a garage to rent monthly, the next car I get needs to be locked up otherwise im better of getting a Nissan Micra

    I wouldnt get insured on a masareti or a M3/M5 anyway. Not round here anyway. Probbaly might be able to if I gave them a low risk postcode but then the Police will start giving me hassle

    Love it. Had a good crawl around one last week. My kind of car.

    There will probably be some decent contract lease deals knocking about, could be worth looking at.

    I'm also coming across new Shape civic type Rs from £6500 up. Lot of car for that money.

    Scion is just a rebranded Toyota for marketing reasons. The exact same car will also be sold as a Subaru BZ.

    There's really only about 6 big car manufacturers that own all the brands.

    The 86 is sold under three different brands associated with its creators, Toyota and Subaru. Toyota (Toyota 86 in Japan, South Africa and Australia[SUP][1][/SUP] and Toyota GT86 in Europe), Subaru (Subaru BRZ) and Scion (Scion FR-S for the United States and Canada).
