CountersteerYour true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.

Everyone is at different points in their lives and everyone has different priorities. Which makes for some very interesting car-buying questions. It might be time soon for your next car. What would it look like?

Last week, I asked you guys what you wanted out of your next car. More room? Back seats? Upgraded performance? More fun?


Buying or wishing for a new car can be stressful, but it can also be enjoyable. Cars are a big deal and most people interact with their every day. Might as well take the extra time and plan out exactly what you want out of it when it comes time to finally buy it.

Let’s take a look at what you guys put on your wish lists.

Fulfillment (635BMW270)

Looking for that spiritual wholesomeness.

Black (Ace_Rimmer_302)

Fuck black cars.


Daily and Fun (Wizard Nutstorm)

Split your time between the two.


A Niche Ask (yeah-but will it manual?)

Your car probably exists in South America.


A New Something (Steve O Chap)

Can confirm that the Genesis is indeed Good.


Perk Up (Hayden Lorell)

Commutes are boring, but they don’t have to be.


Color (Rusty Starship)

Need some freaking color around here!


Practicality (Ja’mie Lannister, Private School Kingslayer)

A car for everything.


Balancing Act (BoxerFanatic, troublesome iconoclast.)

Wow, you got very into this question!


E-Convertible (Wrong ‘Em Boyo)

I’m listening...


Daily (Bertrammm)

Never underestimate the power of a good daily.


Speeeeeeed (Ricardo Daniel Areingdale)

Need something with a little more pickup.
