Well , a tough one and a very interesting one as well .
But the fact of the life is that a Human always runs after the things he is deprived off , he doesn't give a damn or should i say doesn't understand the importance of what he has and only understands the true value once it is gone(i think am getting too philosophical) .

However, currently i am becar and there's no other option left for me to choose a car and moreover when there are the porshes , mclarens ,lambos are there for taking

Hey...what if the one you love is your car? Then you get both, right?

cars : you get a lot of choice, you can change it/them anytime you like, you are not scolded for dropping a jaw looking at somebody else's beauty, you dont have to remember her birthday or the day you met her for first time...... aah i could go on..
girls : you cant just dump her so easily , you have to shopping for her best friend's( and she's got to be a girl ) birthdays/anniversaries and what not.. - forgetting birthdays and anniversaries can be hell lotta mess with these etc etc...
SO BE CAREFUL WHILE MAKING A CHOICE

hey hkanitkar....

i think we were talking about love and cars here..... if you really love a lady, i dont think you are going to forget when her birthday comes........ you will find everything so good about her......and of course , metal does not expect you ro remember anything ( except service n fuel ).......

nothing personal, but i really think when you fall in love, cars will come after your heart comes.....

Hey nothing personal.... but in my opinion and experience....

I guess i must be obsessed with my car, because I pick out stones stuck in the tires, strain to hear not so normal (or imaginary) sounds from the car than listen to my woman yakking about something that is not so important.

I get a kick from listening to my car growl than listening to my woman rant and rave about some unearthly topic.

Hav fun, pedal to the metal !!!

for me it sure is the woman (thats my awesome WIFE) who I love over be it an enzo lambo or anything else.

for my way of seeing a car its - just metal, an engine and a set of 4 tyres(i dont care if it does 300 in 2 seconds or 300 in 3 minutes) and given my style of driving these cars(enzo lambo merc) really wont last their price. i like driving more offroad than smooth motorways. i m kinda too rough and care a damn to the luxuries provided in a car.
for me in a car all that is needed is a set of warning lights for oil water fuel brakes nice cooling AC and a small fridge. And i sure prefer to have an option for Power Steering Use (with power / without power) and a Manual tranny.
The reason for no power steering is that it helps me excercise by upper body and my wife and kid like seeing me flexing muscles in the old Mahindra 540DP

oh yes if the thing runs silent its excellent.

looking soon to acquire a used RANGE ROVER. its my BMW on Stilts.
