    causes no harm, but doesn't fix the problem :)

    which would one rather have, from the following list?

    E39 Alpina B10 4.8S (like a 4.8L bored/stroked 540i with lots of bits added)
    W211 Brabus B11 6.1 (like an E500 bored/stroked to 6.1L, 430hp'ish I think, lots of stuff added of course)
    E60 M5 with SMG and the forged M6 wheels, plain jane

    It seems that Porsche has stopped all their weird colours purple etc.


    E39



    I like it, but it's to expensive for what it is and compared to what else is available.

    I don't kone where In Europe you live (car tax etc), but around here (denmark) a fully loaded 190hp diesel evoque is the better part of 160k€ and you can get a 530d or a a6 3.0tdi for less, so it doesn't make any sense, unless you want it as a luxury fiat 500

    Well hello neighbour, I live in Malmo, but I studied in Copenhagen for 4 years :) What a small world.. yes I know about that in Denmark it's really expensive. Here it's alot better then Denmark.

    Anyways, I was at Top Gear Live for 1 month ago in Forum, did you see it aswell?

    Haha yeah it's a small world.

    No I didn't go as I heard mixed things about it.

    Do you still have cheap insurance on brand new cars, a mate of mine had an evo when he lived in Malmø and it was like 20$ a month in insurance, for a 20 year old.

    It was really great (but to little show of the brand new cars as koenigsegg) was more of crashing cars and stuff, but fun. Well it really depends on what car you buy as for volvo and those brands you get really good insurance. It's more about how long you had your license, age that's make the insurance low here.

    I pay like $3000/year for my Porsche 997 turbo, year 2007.

    Okay a mate of mine told me that the music was so loud that you couldn't hear the engines etc. and he had paid for front row center, which the day before had been changed by Forum to second row in the corner behind a pillar, so he wasn't pleased at all.

    Yes that was very bad to loud music, and they showed the nice cars for like 10 min (so I thought many were disappointed) but I had no problem with my platinum ticket, if he had that also he could see the cars backstage after the show which was nice. The only car that fell my eyes were the Porsche GT3, love that car.

    I enquired about tickets to Top Gear when I was in London last, and was told that they were sold out, but if I put my name in they miiight have something for me in 9 months. at least the tickets are free, though.

    of the three, the Alpina is tempting but probably just a bit dated. and I can't remember any Brabus I've been a. fan of. so E60 M5 by elimination. an M5 with Eisenmann exhaust blew by me last night and dear god that sound was head turning. but lose the M6 wheels and go aftermarket

    E60 M5 would be my choice without hesitation.

    Saw it on the dealership lot. Not a fan. Looks too much like a Ford, an ugly one at that.
