    It’s fun to have something that’s a bit different.
    An M140i is £80k here in Denmark and a Golf R probably around £70k because of our insane car taxes... so they are very rare here (anything with more than 250 hp is).

    Anyway - nice choice on the Stinger. I never thought I’d like a Korean car, but it is actually a very nice car! I’ll be killed if I replace my car already again, but I have actually considered the Stinger for my next car... but that is still two years out!

    Good luck with the stinger, they look fantastic.

    I went with the bmw and I have to say, after nearly a year with it, apart from the engine and gearbox, they are garbage...

    Cars are also getting way too expensive these days. Costs an arm and a leg if you want a new performance saloon.

    totally agree... uk its at least £35k to get something with VXR siggy overall ability... yes the golf r etc is a bit cheaper but also smaller and not a true family sized car..... everyone thats seen and ridden in mine cant believe its a VX car... even some BMW and Audi owners are relatively impressed.
    A mate has the new M140i... with option it cost over £40k and he cant use it to take his family to the airport for holiday... 2 kids and all the luggage just dont fit.
    Also barely quicker than a mapped siggy....until its wet... lol

    Yep, your right. I have 3 kids and need a bigger car. As you said £40 grand is the rough ball park figure for a decent non Vx performance saloon which is allot of money. Go M, AMG or Audi RS and you are in pop star territory. Unless you have very, very deep pockets you could never afford one. Well not me anyway!
