Cars again. Chrysler Crossfire: Mad to buy one or mad not to?
It’s based on the original SLK, not a good thing. You’ll also get mocked even worse than the guy picking up a Z3 today
As you’ve already been thinking about an MX-5 that’s what I’d be going for if you want a drop-top.
Even accepting that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, they are incredibly fugly cars. And American.Posted 4 years ago

OP are you gay?
Not yet love, but I’d make the switch for you, sweetie. 🙂
Started looking at second cars, Yaris, C1, Clio and thought sod it, let’s have something a bit more fun. Open to other suggestions, I’m not looking for a car to rag about, just something which is a nice place to sit and a bit more fun. Do you need your highlights touching up?Posted 4 years ago
Got an S-Max for any actual transport needs, but we could do with a second car for occasional times when we both need a car. Doesn’t need to be massively practical so as well as MR2s and MX5s, this thing loomed on the radar. Anyone got any experience of them?
Seems it’s 80% Merc SLK320 with an American style body built by Karmann, the German soft top specialists. The mid-life crisis is really kicking in, obviously.Posted 4 years ago
For Crosshire money theres a few V6 mk1 TTs floating around. A mate used to have a 225 Quattro and it was stunning. Silver with red leather interior. Not the quickest thing in the world but a whole world away from many other cars mentioned above in terms of nice places to be. Plus they have a semi decent boot and back seats…
I’d be all over one like a rash if we needed a second car.Posted 4 years agoKing-ocelotMember
Boxsters are nice my missus had one, be prepared for people telling you thier Clio/GTi/s-whatever is quicker around a track.
MR2 is our current fun car, I prefer it to the MX5’s is replaced. But MX5’s deserve all the praise they get.
Z4 feels huge by comparison
Crossfire is for people who don’t really like cars or driving but want a drop top.

I’ve owned a Boxster, Boxster S, Z4 3.0 SE, and a Z4 M Coupe.
If you want to mince around in comfort with something that sounds great and handles superbly, a Boxster is the car for you, if you want to add speed to that, then Boxster/Cayman S is the way to go. If you want reliability, a great sound a much better interior and a fully electric roof, then get a Z4, but ditch the RFTs straight away. If you want an out and out sports car the Z4m is unbeatable for the price. The noise, the handling, the speed…it’s awesome.
Servicing for the standard Z4 is far cheaper than the Boxster/Cayman and both BMWs are immeasurably more reliable. I wouldn’t have a 986/987 Boxster/Cayman without a full manufacturers warranty. Stories of engine failures are rife, and mine needed all the coil packs replaced at 30k miles…not cheap!
Z4 is a totally different animal to a Z3.Posted 4 years agoAlexSubscriber
I want a s2000. I’ve no idea why. But I do want one. It’s that or risking ‘spousal assault with a rolling pin’ by going back on my promise not to buy anymore motorbikes.
I like that Chrysler. No idea what it drives like but looks like the kind of car Batman would drive on his days off 😉Posted 4 years ago
