I think it was a 300C on Top Gear. The V8 mobster hot rod thingy?
It looked cool, but it sounded flipping awful to drive!

I think the 300M is a more mainstream family "sedan".

Anyway, what would be the chances of Lips getting either?!

Re: New member, from suburbia...

Hi Lips and welcome back!

So you`re getting a GT?....... with a Bose system,(all the better to listen to your favourite Prince tracks on).And it will be black with black leather,because you are a classy kind of girl.Right or right?

Bset regards Pete

Eve wants to go "all black" for the GT too... everybody keeps saying not do it, because the car needs contrast
the only compromise would be black/red interior..
but i still prefer black/black

Maybe she hasn't bought a new car, maybe she's just bought a really small garage?

Me too.

And if any lady passengers want to bring more black leather to the inside of my car, they are more than welcome.


I bet Lips isn't going to come back now.
She's remembered what a bunch of weirdos we are.

Sorry Bazza.

She gets going eventually Mitch, but the foreplay is getting a bit tiresome.

But Lips is being very coy isn't she?
I thought she would have let us know about her new car by now.
I mean we've had some good guesses - Hummer, 300C/M, Volvo, Mini, small garage.

Yeah, but if she's going to use the Bose properly, she should have something with a good bit of bass.

Re: New member, from suburbia...

@Green Cloverleaf

You'd be surprised what a collection of useless information I have floating around my poor excuse for a brain, and once you know what you're looking for, it's easy to find it online.

@Rick and Bazza
The 300C probably got reviewed because it is brand new for 2005. The 300M's last production year is 2004, but as it is a bit more of a refined looking car -- much more akin to a 156 than the heavier/bulkier 300C is -- I used that one in my post.

2005 300 lineup
http://tinyurl.com/69xrx

300M examples
http://www.300mclub.org/300mofthemon...lywinners.html

slightly older 300M review with photos http://www.allpar.com/reviews/300m.html


Hope that clears things up.

300M, I could live with that, with the beefy 3500 cc engine of course

Oh and Lips, do tell us before we burst a brain vessel
