    Shadows? Well, we'll see about that one.

    Well, i already said my choice. Nissan GTR. If you have tons of moolahs, get the Audi RS6. Pimp it to the maximum

    Pimp your ride with the GTR! but GTR fuel consumption is on the high side.

    by looking at the two pictures... the GT-R has more appeal. it's design is fresh compared to the dated S5.

    if i have the means to indulge myself with such expensive toys, i wouldn't care less on how much the maintenance cost may set me aback. such costs are nothing compared to the sheer pleasure of driving the ultimate machine. money can be earned back... but driving pleasure is priceless.

    so for me... the GT-R would be it

    which one will you buy?


    Please:i know they are quite different in league.each have their own plus points.Dont have to remind me on these 2.i know and had driven them both.
    now it just boils down to 1 decision.

    i'm just curious which one will you choose given the choice and why.

    inputs please.
    TIA
    With the absolutely ridiculous price of cars in Singapore (car + tax + COE + ERP etc etc) I won't buy any of them. Not even a Nissan Sunny. How many people actually have a valid reason to look at buying a car other than just as a silly sign of how 'successful' they are? MRT + taxis is all I'll ever need.

    And btw, you're FAR better off putting your money into property instead of driving around in an artificially expensive depreciating asset. Think with your head, not your testosterone.

    hahaha... a typical stereotyping a person. japanese car drivers are 'ah bengs' while continental car drivers are 'classy'.

    but i've seen 'ah bengs' driving Merc CLS, BMWs, etc. so these must be 'classy ah bengs' eh?

    really? would you like to tell that to the Nissan folks, who clearly modelled the Godzilla as a Porsche 911 killer?

    by your logic... anybody who drives continental cars like Audi should have their egos check because they drive like they own the road.

    stereotypes are just that. stereotypes.

    when you consider cars like these, fuel consumption is not a consideration factor.

    No of course it isn't. Contribute to global warming as much as you want. Consideration for future generations doesn't apply to you.

    Why don't you post this on a car forum?

    I prefer Audi for its more executive look...more understated.

    Sounds more to me like you just want to flaunt your future car in our faces. If money isn't a factor then just get both and be done with it. Why don't you start your own fleet?

    As is choosing whatever car you want to waste your money on.

    Btw, do you actually own your own house or are you still living with your parents?

    I can't help but feel you feel personally offended by this thread based on your replies to this thread.

    honestly mate, is there anything wrong with garnering opinion from peers on what to get? even if she does go on to get the car, is there an issue with her choosing how she likes to spend her money? again... no.





    and, if you really want to be pedantic, property isn't the most secure way of investing one's money. but hey... whatever swings your boat.

    Sorry man, this just totally comes across as if this woman wants everybody to sit up and take notice of what a big spender she is and fuel her ego. Not exactly modest. It's the middle of a recession and she wants people to know that she's Singapore's next Donald Trump.

    I'd love to know what's more secure than property. Cars depreciate. Shares can fall to nothing. Land is always worth something.
