Default Room 101 - Cars

I'm going to vote to dispose of the Fiat Doblo. I've never owned one - but just look at it.

Default Re: Room 101 - Cars

Right now ... Audi - Because mine spends more time with them than me....

Cars: Hummers, Kia Picanto - I see no use in this world for either

Others:

Ridiculously body kitted older cars - Those Corrolas, Supra's (etc etc) where the flared arches / boot spoiler / sports exhaust kit, wheels and sound system actually cost more than the value of the car.

Nissam Altima. Why are they all owned by such bad drivers? Does anybody have a theory?

Default Re: Room 101 - Cars

My old man had a TVR and the wing mirror door openers failed more often than working, the roof was a shit thing to get on / off / up / down.....but the odd engine break down aside, it was phenomenal. Absolutely blew my mind and the noise made my nuts tingle.

So it doesn't deserve to go in, despite it's obvious failings. Nobody suggest the TVR (Chimaera in this case).

To go in;

Rolls Royce Phantom - they've become a toy for footballers / Arabs and people without ANY class, ruining what made a Roller a Roller.

Range Rover Sport - Buy the proper one, it's nicer, looks better and isn't driven by a ****.

Audi A8 - Unless you gave me it completely painted, i'd struggle to like it. There is no need for them to miss such a big bit of paint down the side.

Daewoo Matiz - I once, with a mate, pushed one of these over onto it's side. That cannot be safe.

Default Re: Room 101 - Cars

men who talk about cars for me - they're just a machine, nobody tosses off over microwaves or washing machines in the same manner

HR called me last week about a new one, she was all nervous until I said I couldn't give a shit as long as it had 4 wheels and an input for an mp3 player

Anything with those cheap looking clear plastic tailights. Just screams Fast and Furious wannabe.

I used to like G-Wagons but that was before they started appearing in videos and as a symbol of overt ostentatiousness. Same for Rollers.

Never like the Hummer H2 , just a big fat low ground clearance body on a GM platform. It's just a party mobile.

Stopped liking Astons when they started the Vanquish line. Looks like a Jag / spiffied up Jag. Astons now just give me a sense of meh.

Bugatti veyeron, don't like the concept. The McLaren F1 is still the standard for supercars (for me).

So did you decide to buy the Fj cruiser or not?

Hummers would be my choice for 101 plus the people who drive them. Both are chavtastic.

What sort of moron chooses a Hummer? Really ugly vehicle and totally unneccesary for urban driving.

Agreed - if they were in UK they would probably have a Pitbull or a Rottweiler too.

This was the beast I was looking for but couldn't remember its name - how can fiat keep producing such ugly cars.

I wonder if when you put on the lights near the windscreen you get really bad reflection off the bonnet. Looks like you might.
