Default Love...

True Love comes first for me, anyday. We do need someone who we can rely on, for emotional support, however strong we are, mentally.

You might say that you can go for a long drive in your dream car when you are upset and that can calm you down, but there is nothing like sharing those things with the one you love. Besides, you can take the woman along with you on the drive, isn't that better?

If you ask me to choose between paris hilton and a Lambo Gallardo, I would definitely go for the Gallardo!

We chose love because we love someone truly.

Until I met the girl who became my wife, it was cars all the way. Now, I live for her and cars are just things to enjoy. But I was dying to buy this car but hesitating for over 8 months, especially since its enormously price, but she pushed me to buy it and fulfill my desire and she was very happy that I bought it. Here she and I are, picking it up.

@hyper you maybe right, but personally, when ever I had been disturbed/dipressed whenever I needed emotional support, they only place I found solace had been my car.

I am a bachelor, that does not mean I never had relationships with girls, I had my share. But I am yet to find someone with whome to share those things. Maybe you had been lucky, my freind.

Till then it is cars any day, I am in love with my baby.

Only future will tell what I will think tomorrow, whatever my babies will never be abandoned, for sure.

That is why I highlighted 'true love', meaning to say that you will stay together for the rest of your lives - happily (important).
Same reason why I'd choose a lambo over paris hilton. hehe..

Thanks Sumit! Luck is on my side for now!

On the topic of this thread, after I got this car, I get SO MUCH attention from the ladies that my wife said I should have bought it before I got married and used it for maximum benefit!

I wish I had it in college! haha!

btw is the Elise Pre - Owned ? How much BHP in this car ? I had also thought of buying it but dumped the idea finally because the car is too small and very dangerous to drive on highways.

I thought the Exige was the best Elise available.
