In ten years time I'd hopefully be driving a Lancer Evolution XVI or something with 500 bhp on tap .

This thread has turned into a 'car you fantasize about' and not the 'car you see yourself driving 10 years down the lane'

First car after I graduate(hopefully), about 2 years from now: An used 10year pickup truck or an old civic.

5 years after I graduate, hopefully I will be driving: 2nd hand BMW 3 Series.

10 Years after I graduate, ideally:

SUV: LC Defender
Sports car: CorvetteSS( or whatever the new iteration is) or 911 turbo
Luxury car: Lexus 460h or S class
For shopping: Honda Fit

Hehehe but gas prices hovering around a $1/liter then it will be $2/liter, so I in all probability I will be taking this to work http://www.urbanrail.net/am/toro/ttc24.jpg

I fantasize myself in *THE* DB9

Realistically though, a 3 series BMW (any one) is fone for me!

I'd be buying and old Chevy Impala or the likes and restoring it to all its glory and driving it on the weekends within 10 years (hopefully). For the daily drive, I'll have some good sedan, I have least idea which one will be that. One thing's sure, European.

BTW, a great car that is, SuperSelect. Very, very well maintained.
