Sexus — my ride is awesome, running a supercharged v8 it certainly packs a punch, i love taking on mountai races coz of the extra weight it makes it hug the road and doing smoke runs has never been so fun. also the leather interior make it a very comfortable ride and there is no shortage of gadgets to play with in the dash :), also a good way to learn japanese.

Pros: hot, chicks dig it...,

Cons: fuel, finding parts.

Ok — This car runs and drives amazing. However the interior could have used some better designing. Mine has 200,000 miles and runs like a top. I love it and would like to keep it around just to be able to dump money into it. But parts and labor are five times what its worth.

Pros: Motor, tranny, and rearend are amazing

Cons: Interior blows.

Sc400 — 265 hp, accels fast, brakes really good, has great handling, real wide tires, traction control, ect switch lets you choose trans setting and engine setting, regular is for regular, and power makes the trans shift at high rpms. i love this car, dont like the mpgs though, not that good

Pros: fast, string

Luxury Sports Coupe — Smooth car to drive, interior was and electronics were way a head of their time and reliable. Car performance was great with a throaty 4ltr V8 (1UZFE) and only got better with time. 1JZ-GTE also had amazing power and performance options. Handles extremly well witht the stock fitted Actie Air Bag Controlled Suspension, but fitted with aftermarket suspension improves ridginess and handling ability. Great car to drive and has no trouble turning 19's and going sideways.

Pros: Strong engines/gearboxes. Great interiors and power and performance. Handles like a go-kart.

Cons: Needed a manual option in the V8's and more TT manuals. Also all needed to fitted with Torsen LSD's. Weight is also a slight problem, weighing in at 1680Kg.

Was gutted when I sold it but was too expensive to run :(

Cons: Fuel consumption, complicated electrics
