My 928:

Although since this pic I've gone back to the standard GTS wheels that came with the car.

How about your 635?

I couldn't decide which of my cars to enter... until today when I realized that Labcoatguy had already entered his X308. Since my XJR looks pretty much the same on the outside, I'll enter my other one. :D

Wouldn't it be easier just to let people vote on the cars that are uploaded in the "My car" forum thus including every car on the forum not just the ones posted in this thread. Also we would get more than 40 entries.

Quite probably but if only a few dozen people vote and the votes are spread over some one-hundred-and-fifty-odd cars it might not work too well. At least this way we only have the regulars and a few 'hangers-on' entering and voting so it should be clear-cut and easy.:cool:

On another note: When will the betting odds be established? I would like to lay down some heavy action.

Makes sense. So I guess I'm entering the competion with this, if it isn't too late already.
Btw finalgear folks have some really nice cars: Z3 Coupe is lovely, the 928 looks great, the Merc 280S is awesome, LOVE the 205 GTI (use to have onw myself), the X1/9 is beautiful. Will be hard to choose what to vote for.

I've met a lot of people who have said, pretty much, exactly that to me. They ususally wear baseball caps at funny angles and drive corsa's with stickers about how no fat girls are aloud into the car.

Agreed, very fun, chuckable little car, just a tad small on the inside.

True, I wish the seat went back just one more click. It'll do, but I'd be a bit more comfortable if it went back just a little bit more. Also, when the drivers seat is in my position, nobody can sit behind me. Unless they have no legs.

So the "no fat girls" sticker actually could be there for a reason.

You know what's missing in the Top 25 Cars of FinalGear?
Some warm-ish Diesel hatch of course ^^

I give you the Ford Fiesta "S" 1.6 TDci :)

http://pic.armedcats.net/k/ki/killpanda/2009/07/07/IMG_3963.JPG

And I give you the 1.6 Petrol variant, sold as the Zetec-S here in the UK :D

A 2008 model, one of the last of this shape Fiesta, so has fitted extras, such as voice activation & bluetooth, power fold mirrors, automatic headlights and wipers, and tinted rear windows.
