    I'd love to know what's more secure than property. Cars depreciate. Shares can fall to nothing. Land is always worth something.
    again, it is of your own opinion that she's trying to make herself into something that she supposedly isn't. which is a valid point of view, but that being said... isn't her point of view just as valid? that she's buying it for her own personal investment and enjoyment? at the end of the day, it's her money and unless she's breaking the law or hurting people directly, then I don't see why you (or anybody) should have a beef with how she spends her money.

    besides, your views on monetary growth and assets may differ from the next individual. you think that property holds value the best, other people may not think so. what makes you so sure that she hasn't had money sunk into property anyway?

    take a chill pill mate.
    chicken fight!

    Yeah I know there's two sides to every story.

    I'm just well and truly sick of Singapore's 5 C's culture. You can't even enjoy a car in Singapore...there's nowhere to really open it out and do 120kmph down a highway uninterrupted by traffic or lights.

    TS is welcome to do what she wants with her money. But its very easy to take this thread as rubbing it in our faces.

    120km/hr? no prob wat... expressway, guts, and points enuff to cover that ride. then you'll get a 2 year suspension. try KPE... while you're at it, perhaps you might wanna try a little higher.

    *btw, try at your own expense...*

    oh ya, its mid year holiday now... try to relax abit...

    i'll take the gtr to appease the bengness in me. nvr had a chance to own the r32-r34 so if i have the chance, i would grab the new gtr instead.

    i prefer performance over form factor. i think the gtr will be a better car if i want to bring it tracking.

    120km/h?

    sigh...IF you drive in singapore, you'll realised you can easily reach that speed on expressway other than peak hours.

    anyway guys, please stick back to topic.
    thanks so much.

    the Jap based Godzillas are speed locked based on their GPS coordinates. I wonder if the ones that get brought into Singapore would have the same restrictions on their cars?

    i am sure if u are inclined, it shld be easily overwritten. like when the jap makers said they were gonna put a ceiling of 280bhp and bla bla bla on their cars but the dyno figures said otherwise.

    nothing that can be solved with $$$.

    the GPS lock is such that if you are not at a race course, you're not entitled to the full capabilities of the Godzilla. it's a sort of satellite based speed limiter. so if you're not within a given coordinate, you travel at x km/hr instead of km/hr.

    I would say GTR.

    Reason .. as good as the Audi S5 is, it is not a cult car .. unlike the GTR.

    The GTR is in a different league - that of the 430, the 911, the Gallardo or the R8.
    The S5 meanwhile, is a good contender against the likes of the M3 and the CLK55.

    Tan chong WILL bring in the GTR.but because now they had just launched the 370z, they wont officially launch the GTR.

    but tan chong GTRs will easily be priced at 330k and above, but their omvs are higher though.

    i dont think you can par s5 with m3, or clk 55 amg.
    they are really on different cats.
    s5 has been matched with 335i.
