Yeah right.

Porsche is for function. GT3 RS on track hell yeah.

But for looks, very outdated by gtr, aston, maser, lambo, r8...

Not ugly, just been there, yeah yeah, 1st glance not required. Great cars but no one buys porsche just for the looks, sans budget issues.

you know its funny that when i see pictures of the turbo online it does nothing for me but in person i always find myself looking. I think i stop and look because i know of its performance capabilities and wish i had a car with that much performance.

+1 They all look way too alike for my personal tastes. Not saying I wouldn't mind driving or owning one but if I had a choice I would choose something else that appealed to me more.

Wow, I've stirred up the hornet's nest with that comment.

Glad some other agree with me, however

Audi - dont agree with option packaging + price. in a way feels like honda from germany.
Lexus - re-badged toyota... styling gets tiresome quick...
Toyota - dont understand the styling... most are not my taste.
Infiniti - conventional brand everywhere else lux brand here... but same products. dont see the value.
Hyundai - There are many brands out there for me to try and want first...
Jaguar - feels like they are in a class of its own... wealthy + elderly by ford.
US domestic brands - had one and that was enough for me

Range Rover.

I love the way they look and the interior is gorgeous, but from what I've heard, reliability is a major issue. Same with Jag.

this is exactly how i feel.

if i might add nissan/infiniti, hate both equally and will never ever ever get neither. from a personal experience perspective with either car.

The only MBs that offer a manual in the USA are the C300 and SLK300. Base engines only.

I respect Chevy and Dodge for one car each built by them: The Corvette and the Viper. I won't buy either because of the build quality.

Honda, Mazda, Subaru and MB

Don't respect any other automakers and I can't imagine myself owning anything other than Bimmer now that I have one.

Kia. The new Kia Optima Turbo to be exact. It has almost everything you could ever want in a car, good MPG, pretty quick, luxurious, modern styling, great warranty, well priced...

But... it's a Kia.

I agree... I really like the Kia... over Toyota and Honda and Nissan

edit: Just read the OP. I take it back. I would buy a Kia.
