    Hypothetical question for you . . .

    Let's say you had a rich uncle, grandma, girlfriend or whatever and they said to you "I'll give you $80,000 for any vehicle of your choice.". What would you get? So this could be a base vehicle with any upgrades you want blah blah blah up to 80K.

    I think a R8 is a bit over $80k isn't it.... I vote for GTR also but I think its also a bit over 80k but not by much.

    Whatever you don't spend on the vehicle you lose in this situation. And I guess I should've said that this will be a daily driver and you don't have another vehicle. I should've specified those details in the OP. My bad.

    OK then I would buy any 80K car, sell it privately, buy a cheap car and put the rest in the bank. :)

    I understand what you're saying. I guess I think of it like this. A Tacoma is a Toyota so you know you can depend on it for years and years to come. Even if something does go wrong with it, it wouldn't be rediculously expensive to fix it unlike some higher end vehicles. Also, you can mod the shit out of it and not be too nervous that you're jacking with a crazy expensive vehicle.
