Dream car from 10-12L Parts bin-

Fiesta Chassis, suspension, steering with Verna's CRDi engine with VW/Skoda DSG/Manual gearbox.

Dream car from 20-22l Parts bin-

Skoda Octavia 1.8 TSI with DQ250 6 Speed DSG/MT(to handle more power from Remap) with after sales peace of mind from Toyota.

Higher price point-

BMW M235i or at least a M135i at reasonable price point
