Has to be a Porsche Carrera S. But I'll even settle for the Boxster. By the time I earn 45lakhs+ to get it, it would probably be 60+. Heck, they even banned lottery here in Karnataka !!

If Evo is launched in India, I'm gonna get one.

Like GTO said its not just the expensive BMW and MERC or POrsche but also the VW which is relatively cheap to own. But they have SERIOUS reliability issues. I own one right now and its a PAIN in the Rear End. Its great great fun to drive handles sharp and power ful engine for its size. The new gti's are even better but i know people who have trouble with those too. Most problems are electrical. Mine too. They should wake their asses up now coz they own Skoda, Seat, Lambo, Audi and Bugatti.
I've known a lot of people here also have reliability issues with the 04 05 BMW's. Bottomline is I think the japs' although overtly technical about their cars lack passion but make reliable cars. Lexus I think wud be my expensive brand.

this i would decide based on my requirement, firstly if i am in india and drive mainly in city traffic and less on highway then its defiantely a Japanese car that i would prefer.

and if its aroad where the roads are much suited for higher speeds then its nothing else but the ultimate (atleast to me its ultimate) GERMAN made car i would want.

Although Japanese cars are reliable, i also trust the American ones. I love the American muscle cars, and SUVs.

But, all said and done, German engineering appeals the most.

i love these german for they are built for power safety luxury and nothing else the other are built for mileage and too many cost cuttings are done as far as where even safety matters..........

since the poll question is What car you prefer, i voted for German. but came to know from the posts that the choice had to be made keeping in mind, roads and drive in Mumbai and also how deep your pocket is .so in that case, i would go for Japanese.

For me,

Japanese - reliable, FE, less maintenance etc etc- 'THE BEST' for satisfying my need of transportation.

German - Innovation, engineering, design etc etc - I drive my Passion
