Hi there First of all wishing you a Merry Christmas, crazy to think its next week! Second hope you all had a fantastic 2018 and best wishes for 2019, its just a couple of weeks away. So for us lot motoring, car plans it never ends, so what are peoples plans for their cars, motoring trips and anything else car related for 2019? For myself, its easy to sum it up: SVR: Pay it off Q1 next year, makes sense to save the interest, sit on the car and maybe advertise it for sale but at a high price, so if someone comes along it would be a little silly to not let it go. Or just keep it, I did consider just going wild, 700HP and pull as much weight as I can out, but it would massively de-value it and spoil it I feel. Then simply watch the values of other cars. Santa Pod in Feb, see if I can get that 10s pass, set of Cup 2's on the other wheels, take it to Donnington for a track day and keep Cup 2's on for Summer months. As always some road trips, again Summer. Get a video review done with @JayEmm M3: Second set of wheels arrived (Apex Arc 8) in black chrome, same make as current ones, slightly different style and they've got new AD08R's on, once warn shall try AR1's. Get some track days in, Donnington, Bedford, Oulton Park to name a few. Set of new seats, Recaro or Sparco and maybe a wrap in an orange or green but I can't decide and then my own in-decision puts me off. Clio: Nothing, leave it parked, use it once a month and maybe just one track day next year, say Oulton Park where a smaller lighter car always works well. Next car: The next car is a tough choice for me, the SVR is kind of better than I expected and I feel there is no exact replacement for it. Its rear driven biased AWD system so it feels involving but very capable. I like dirty ugly and loud, the SVR ticks all those boxes, it always gets a crowd of people around it and people love it, British super/sports car and all that. Its comfy, its bonkers quick, pretty much 3s flat every time you hoof it from a set of lights even in the wet, not many cars can do that and make it so easy and accessible, its never lost traffic light grand prix. Its the first auto that never made me feel I need dual clutch, its bloody fantastic, all I would maybe like is more of an inertia push in high gears. Handling and grip are fantastic, brakes are good now but not 911/Cayman or proper lighter sports car good, its where you can feel its a 1650-1700kg beast, but acceleration and handling wise it feels more 1500kg, feels massively over-engined and has torque everywhere with instant throttle response, it can do skids, donuts and is ultimately so user friendly all year round, it cost peanuts to run and its been reliable, keeps fingers crossed. So you can see its one bloody fantastic car, great all rounder. Thus the decision of where to go next is so difficult because no one car can offer everything the SVR does but each can pip the SVR in some area, but can then fall massively short in others. But in short my next car short list for 2019 will be mostly likely a 570S, GT3 or 458, in that order. I feel if I sold SVR now or early next year I'd get 75k for it (5k loss in a year), if I keep it another 6-9 months I will probably get circa 65-70k, or maybe more, its rarity and spec really helps hold its value. However if I purchased a 570S now, even if I got the car I want spec/colour wise I am still looking at 100-110k (advertised 125-140k), but I feel same car 6-9 months will be 75-90k, thats a 20-30k saving over buying now, that cannot be dismissed. 570S is favourite, is so British supercar, only real downsides are noise, after support from Mclaren and fact RWD means it won't have that off the line traction in wet. GT3, don't need to talk about this, its kind of a dream, shall probably try to get in a 991.2. 458 wild card, love them, but older, more running cost and your that guy in a Ferrari. So what about the rest of you, I know several of you are also watching the market for next purchase or have plans for next years travels and track days.
