We've all seen topics about the cars we own and the cars we dream about but I don't recall ever seeing one about our future car.

I'm sure that sooner or later we'll all change our trusty machines with new and/or better ones. So which will be your next car and when do you expect to buy it?.
(BTW, be realistic.......I doubt that anyone here has the economic capacity to buy an Aston Martin, a Ferrari F50 or a Mclaren F1).

I have 3 choices.
My first is the BMW M3 E30 which was the first M3 on the road. Has a good deal of power (190+ Hp if I'm not mistaken) and the looks....there's something I love about that car's looks. Even more than the two later versions of the M3.

My second would be a Peugeot 306 XSi. I've owned a Pug for over a year now and I have no complains about the car so I would be keen to stay with that brand. And the only other 2L coupe car available here is the Seat Ibiza Cupra but I'm not convinced with the representation over here.

And my last would be the Renault Clio 1.8 16V soon to be realeased over here.

Now......when will I buy any of these cars? No sooner than 3 years from now.....But no later than 5 (I hope!).

My next car won't be that spectacular than your M...it will be the new Mondeo TD, the limousine. In my eyes, and I also tested it, this is just a great car. And I love the design as I like the serial leather in the Ghia version I will choose.

When I've saved some money and the trusted 9 year old Rover 416si starts to cost me more in repairs than petrol a month, I'll change to, I would like a new look Astra. 1600cc at least IF I can afford it. Been eyeing up the Corsa's but not heard brilliant reports.

If I won the lottery, it would be a different story....

I won't have a next car. If I win the Lotto I'll buy a driver.

Well I hope I can buy a car soon. May be in two years, and my choices are basically the same than the ones from my friend sharky. I like french cars so it is between the renault clio or the peugeot. But if I can save some money I think I could affort the audi S3(day dreaming).

Now, I could talk entirely true to form and start going on about how a sharp Aston Martin DBS still only costs the same as a new Mondeo, but we are talking about practical everyday road cars here.

I have to say, I am sorely tempted to try Italian machinery again. The words Alfa Romeo are nagging at me, and I'm wondering if my next car choice shouldn't be an Alfa Romeo 164, before they all become a little too old to be trustworthy daily drivers.

Alternatively, a coupe Alfa GTV6 might be rather fun.

Can't cope with all these little hot-hatches, I'm afraid. Not enough to them.

My dad is taking me to the Mini garage this holiday, so you can guess what I'm after.

(When I told my friend this, she seriously believed I meant a mini-garage...)

So Minardi Fan, just how big a mini-garage are you looking to purchase?

Hmmm- tricky one....
The Hurricane will be with us for many years to come (long enough for 'Bottle Junior to borrow it as a tool for attracting the opposite sex, whichever that may be (for those who don't know, he/she dosn't arrive until Sept)
The Granada is a terriffic family car, just needs rear belts fitting, but it's getting a bit old now (17 years) and will need to be replaced by something with good MPG which is a good family transporter and can tow (and stop) an unbraked box trailer, and convertable would be nice as well... Any ideas?

How about a nice Maestro camper van, Bluebottle?

There's a nice junior-sized rear seat option, it town fantastically and gives at least 70mpg.

Presently I have a fleet of Peugeot 504 station wagons (or Familiales) and no thoughts of replacing anything... too handy, not enough money, and I've got a stack of spares. While I have the spares nothing will break, of course....

But I want to progressively outfit them all with five speed gearboxes (anyone got a BA7-5 box going cheap... any conditon?) and Kugelfischer injected engines, though one may be converted to a mini-camper and to run on LPG.

I also have a Jolus, more or less a Lotus 7 made out of Peugeot 203 bits... which has never been finished, though it was started (and driven) in 1963.

If the money was there, I would only get one other car... the 504 Coupe.

fingers crossed, something nice. my olds are selling 'my' car soon, so the dream replacement is a really old new body shape bmw 320i, about l reg, french plates, etc.
that would be nice.
however, i do like those new fiat puntos. if i got more in the old pay packet than i do right now, i'd seriously look at buying one. they have a wicked stereo, and look quite impressive.
on the other hand, those ford pumas are very sext indeed. it'd have to be on french plates, which is where the problem lies. the french aren't in love with them as much as we are.
