This was what I had to say an year back. Now am proud to say that I made the right choice. Now I got the love of my live and slowly I got a nice little zen in a few months.

I know you guys are talking about a dream car. To be frank, this car is my first one, and it means a lot to me. Check this thread started by me at the same time last year :

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shifti...m-too-far.html (Need a Car - Dream too far?)

At that time, I felt life to be unfair but now, evrything is just right! And that too at the right time.

Now when am comparing both, it just isnt right. I mean, both are different. Cannot be compared. The love for your soulmate and the love for passion of cars. They are just not comparable. But on gunpoint, anyday hands down, am ready to leave my dream car for her. Am sure many guys wont understand. When you guys find the right person, you will understand what I mean. She means a lot to me. Its a very special feeling which cant be put into words. At times, she does get bugged with me when I go on and on about cars, gadgets and all the stuff we guys are interested in. These stuff dont facinate her but she understands how crazy I am about them and cooperates even though she gets bored with those stuff. Thats what I love, we both understand each other. Now I have someone whom I can share everything and someone to support and stay with me through all my goodand bad times. Today I may want an EVO, a few years down the lane, ill eventually get bored and crave for something better. When it comes to gadgets and cars, the wants and needs keep changing. Today, I may like my car with swanky alloys, gauges, neons, strobes, boomy audio, etc. As I grow older, ill surely grow out of this "show-off" nature. I know it, I can see myself change. But when it comes to my love, its a different feeling and a whole different world.

Even though you have the best car and everything you ever wanted but dont have that special person, you feel the voidness. Now even though I dont have a dreamcar, I dont feel that voidness. Am content with what I have. Now its just my career I need to build up on, and am sure, within 4-5 years, i WILL own my dreamcar!!!

What more can I ask for?

time for an update: Read My Signature!

ETC must be having a tough time - sometimes she just can't take it anymore - she thinks that i am going crazy about my cars - at times she shouts at me whenever i donot slow down on a rough patch on the road - well yes! she at times cares about Planet and Sonja. Once when my car spun out of control - she thought that i was "drifting" - aint that sweet?

It nothing but car. Love can wait and will be left waiting.
Basically, cars are more faithful and realiable than love.
And I love cars.

Must have a classic exotic car first. Say, a 1932 Dusenberg. Sell it for the 50 crore it is worth, buy a Prada or some chick magnet for under 30 lakh and sit back and reel them in!

Well it depends. If you already have love in your life, then you'd be stupid to give that up for a car

On the other hand, if you don't have a girl in your life, the car will spur new interests, and theres more than one reason why cars have backseats
