    Land Rover Defender 130 hands down.

    Unless I had more expendable income for endless track time in a cager I wouldn’t blue ball myself with a 600hp+ super car on public streets.

After some messing around and testing this and that I ended up buying a new fpr to replace what's in it, but while I had the intake off to do that I found the primary rail has been machined to accept the 850cc secondary injectors, instead of the oem 550cc. Do that math.. and they're 54% larger than they're supposed to be. So that's why it runs like ass, ha. I also found some really scary stuff in the harness while I was doing this, so I ordered some new terminals and I'm going to redo some stuff on the harness. Also found a broken tab on the tps connector which I'm replacing. I think two weeks from now I could have it driving nicely on a base map. Then I have ohlins coilovers for it and all new brake parts to install.

    Just kinda makes you wonder what else is fucked up, because honestly, nothing the PO did was done properly. Even the connectors for the intercooler fan are just hanging there. I have to figure out exactly where those need to be tied in.
    Did you order a few extra apex seals?

    An SUV may seem an odd choice, but it’s about function and performance, and a bit of luxury. Leasing makes it super dreamy. No fixes to worry about, I hammer it for three years then give it back and get what ever I want next. Warranty always in place. Dream vehicles for me are ones I never have to think or worry about. No problem paying a premium if it goes like hell, wraps my dishpan hands in luxury, and doesn’t make me want to puke when I see it in my driveway.

    I currently have my within reach dream car. I would like to lightly mod it for sound/power/track. I should say, I bought it for Kerry and she is the faster driver and much more into cars. My next "just out of reach" dreamer is a 718 Cayman.

    Fun fact. Caterham blinkers are borrowed from Land Rover Defender. As well as some other parts (fuel filter and coolant cap etc).

    And a track day





    Variety of flavors. There is a saying that "no 2 are alike" and that's very true. Besides even the different brands that make the 7, you'll never really find 2 Caterhams that are the same. Between colors and options there is a million varieties. 3 different frames alone. S3, SV and CSR. With each having different models like R or S. Older production models even came with bike engines in limited runs.



    Sorry for huge files. I don't like how this forum does resizing of attachments or linked images or limit on the locally stored files.

    Okay...throw e39 M5 and any flavor 4-door m3 into my STi/Evo/GTR group.

    I'm adding one more. e63 AMG Wagon. RS6 Avant is cool, but the Benz 100% wins in the looks department.

    After owning my 07 ltd STI and the M235i I basically want a subi awd system with an n55 in a hatch or wagon.

    Also a tarted up late 70’s grand wagoneer fits into this category.

    Re: What's your realistic dream car?

    Always wanted a Super Seven. Met a guy in South Windsor that had one with a turbo busa motor in it. So freaking cool. He also had a lotus esprit TT v8, that I lusted as a kid. After spending 5 minutes shoe horning myself into the drivers seat, I could never own one (for that and all the other reasons they are terrible).

    Man...... Im not tryin to say it was a supercar, nor did it have a full cage.....

    But back in the day my 2005 STI was such a monster, man I miss that car.

    450 hp to all 4 wheels, 460 ft/lbs, (600+ horsepower at the crank) 3200 lbs, 265 potenza re01rs, meth injected, fixed bucket seats, half cage, catless, every mount and bushing hardened.... Thing was a *street legal* race car. you were at 100 and had shifted 3 times in under 7.5 seconds....

    The key was that it would actually hook up on the street.

    The sound of that flat 4, 3" catless, EWG, spraying meth, Garret GTX3076r spinning at like 120k rpm.... fuuuuccckkkkkkkkk

    I'd say a nice 427 Cobra, either the original or a nicely done replica. The new mid engine vette could be the more realistic dream car. Also 65 Shelby 2 door, white with blue stripe. When I was a teen a guy around one had one and I got a ride in it one time. Just a cool raw car.

    They range anywhere from low teens for "DIY 7's Locosts", to low 20s for factory "offbrands" such as Westfield etc and the bottom price is starting at about low 20's to mid 20's for Caterham and up from there depending on the model. Decently equipped Zetecs of around year 2000 are about $30k, but BAT prices have been crazy. High end model 620R is about 6 figures brand new (310hp). 40's will get you a great used model.
