I agree, I saw pics of a new Brabus car in a magazine, I forget which model though it has a 700bhp Bi-Turbo engine and will do about 220mph, it's set to be the fastest saloon/sedan car!

You do realise that engine alone is probably worth 10 000, and then theres labour and fabrication involved. None the less that isn't a cheap car.

Correction. The word is looked. And that photo has been posted elsewhere on this forum for years.

as a daily driver my choice would definitely be an Acura TSX (based off the European Honda Accord). Its got all the features i like: reasonable price, big trunk, 4-door practicality, nice interior, relatively good gas mileage, manual transmission, sportiness but not overdone sportiness,

and of course the legendary Honda build quality and reliability

Well I'm sure you haven't said where you live. I do know that you live/lived somewhere in central South Carolina as of late 2005.

I'd be interested to know where you gleaned that information from.
