I would either pick the Porsche, 545i, the Evo, or the GS300 Turbo (with a paint job as sanhonda said )

It just depends on what kind of car you're looking for. If you want crazy speed AND comfort, the GS is probably your best bet

ok guys im back...took the chopper back as it started leaking oil like hell....got my bimmer back and traded it for f250 superduty crewcab....4x4 and little V10 6.8l...car is 2nd owner vehicle
lariat package,electronic brake,bedliner,toolbox,3" lift and 20s with 325 rubber all around...truck has good pick up with 310hp and 425+ trq
took it for a long drive today as got the tag transfered and drives great..no hidden leaks of any kind and drives strong but i averaged around 10.2mpg combined....
few pix after i washed it and waxed it

ordered a touchscreen pioneer receiver and pioneer speakers as ford radio and speakers are weak..

i will miss the 7 but i think in long run truck is better as parts are much much cheaper and we are getting a house by end of summer so i will use it ...7 was mostly garage gueen but this bad boy will be driven every day...

Looks good to me! My dad has this same truck that he bought new back in 1999 I believe. It now has nearly 140,000 miles on it and has been problem free. You are right about the pickup on these trucks; they are beasts! Sadly you will not get much over 10 mpg.

Welcome to the V10 club!
thanks bro...this one has 169k miles and there is no leaks anywhere its like car was never used...
but most important thing to me is parts are cheap and i can drive this truck every single day with out worrying what will break next or what will have to be replaced like i did with 7....and the mileage is not that bad taking into consideration how heavy the truck is....i should get around 300+mpg on full tank which is worth every penny as truck sits high and is like a tank...

i have to tell you my mom was rearended on 20th this month while sitting at redlight by some punk that was texting/drunk and im glad she survived...driving this truck i feel safe!!

here is pics from her car.....

Holy crap Dude..Please tell me he got arrested. 3 years ago one of my cousins died in a car accident after being ejected from his car which was caused by a drunk driver. I'm glad your mom is ok. Thank god.

Im sorry about your cousin...always good people die young

the driver that cause the wreck didn't even get a ticket....
there were cameras at red light and even off duty officer that saw what happened...so we are taking this a little further since i have a feeling that punk that rearended my mom has some connections since i found out his mom is working for health department....

Officers thought that since my mom has accent and has problems with english,that they can sweep this under carpet...


but like i said me and fiance we are getting investigator to dig a little deeper and find out truth about that punk....

You can still post here! You have a ton of knowledge to share. It's been almost a year since I sold mine and I still check in daily and have nothing to add.

That is awful what happened to your mother. I am glad she is ok, and I hope that they guy gets what he deserves.
