    Wouldn't bother with the M3 - my boss hates the way his drives in the wet, sounds like no fun at all. nice for summer though [img]smile.gif[/img]

    That is R34 Territory though [img]smile.gif[/img]

    how can you sell a car without deciding what you want to replace it with?? [img]smile.gif[/img]

    You might decide you want a bug eye STi.. lol

    I'd spend as little as possible on an STi5/6 Type R and spend some money on nice mods personnally.
    Or how about an STi5 and an Elise..

    Well I still got my Range Rover and I was very bored with the scooby. And the right money came along at the right time.

    I've been offered a very attractive package on a spec c though.

    decision made then [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Think it might cost you a little to get it looking how you want it though... no spoilers, no colour coding and tiny wheels (for MY03 car).

    Spec C might limit you gearing wise if you like to cruise at high speed.

    You could buy a cracking used Skyline for £25k, but expect to pay to maintain it.

    EVO wouldn't be a bad buy at all I don't think.

    993 Porsche?

    Indeed, I go to switzerland allot and it's nice to cruise at 130-140 all the way down the A1 (when unrestricted)

    M3 / M5 would be best bet for that.

    SPec C is 0-100 in 11.1 which is crazy fast

    No I think it would look even worse than that! With 17" wheels and low level spoiler!
