I currently own a Fiat Palio 1.6 S10 and the car has pampered me big time with it's europeon build quality, great lusty engine and superlative ride quality and handling. Hence, the car's i would choose from now own will have to have amazing performance and brilliant handling.
So here are my 3 cars, needless to say they are all Europeon products :

1. BMW M3
2. BMW M5
3. Merc SL 500

subaru Forester (too good to be called a Chevy)

Merc E270 D to be launched soon

here's my list:-
1. Skoda. Would have been Peugeot if they still existed in India. Petrol versions only!
2. Judo - fitted for looks (am not getting into details).
3. HM Contessa - fitted out for looks & performance (V8, etc.. u get the point)

i would use the 'substantial amount of money' for the modifications

My next car would definitely be a white SWIFT DDiS, LDi.

The things I would do on it are fit power windows on all doors, then retro fit the DZIRE stereo system, spinners, xenon type front and rear lights, navy blue racing stripes on the car from front to back and then low down on the body in the sides; finally split the SWIFT badging all across the tailgate
