    Handling/power/looks...

    Something with decent handling will show up cars costing twice as much with twice as much power on the right roads...powers nice but not totally necessary if you can keep your speed up...looks, well...its nice if it looks good...

    '..on the right roads'

    Not many of them around unfortunately

    I want a fast car that looks good, its ability to corner makes no difference to motorways, duel carriageways, and the majority of urban/outer urban driving.

    Most people shouldn't be putting thier foot down untill they are on a safe straight road, thats why I put handling last.

    What goods a fast car that don't handle when you've understeered straight into the hedge at the first corner you've come too?. Around here, its all A & B-roads...even the local bypasses have bends...and wheres the fun in a straight road???.

    handling/power/looks. if it doesn't handle well, but has a load of power, then its gonna get messy one day. but power is needed, so thats why i put em in the order i did.

    if war is the answer, then we are asking the wrong question

    I think Evo's look superb. I hate most modern round bubble cars. Everthing looks so similar.

    Looks, handling, power.

    Edit: .... erm, the exact oposite of the rover 216 I'm driving :/

    Definitively: Handling, power, looks.

    Handling because without handling power becomes useless. And without power, handling can still make a car great great fun (mini!?)
    Power, because being able to cane it in a straight line is sometimes handy, and it feels good, and requires little skill to do (unlike handling).
    Looks, because looks are subjective, and im 100% sure every person has their own good looking cars that are also powerful with good handling, be it a tuned mini, or a ferarri enzo. Theres something to fit everyone in the looks dept, its deffo the least important.

    There

    Power and handling in equal first, then looks.

    But that is only from those three options, not necessarily the only criteria I would use in choosing a car. I'm also interested in safety, security, comfort and so on.

    I'm kinda torn between power and handling. I've always made sure a car I've had can handle, but to keep insurance down I've always gone without power... Looks are nice, but I prefer things to work well rather than look good.

    So, since I've mated power with handling, I'm enjoying outright torque and brutal acceleration. There's nothing like having a motorbike behind you at a set of lights and the bike having to actaully nail it to get past you. One bloke missed a gear he was that suprised once.

    So for me (at the moment) it's Power, Handling, Looks.
