    Do you have a preference? Mine used to be the Seat Leon then i started to just use whatever i felt like at the time. I just recently started driving the Opel Vectra and it has now become my new favorite Touring Car.

    I used the Seat Leon (07) for years, but when STCC 2 came along I switched to the Opel Astra. It's not necessarily a better car, I've just always liked Vauxhalls.

    I like only BMWs cause for me a racing car should be RWD.

    I like the BMW but am not competitive enough in it. Oddly enough never liked the Leon, have never even driven it in the game bar a few laps in the TDI to see what diesel was like.

    We were always a Vauxhall family, Mantas, Cavaliers, Astras then when my turn came I bought a Vectra, also because I grew up watching John Cleland racing one. So I'll take the Add-On Vectra if possible.

    STCC1 I'll usually take the A4 though I need a lot of practice to get used to its rather 'unique' handling.
    Other than that I can never make up my mind. 407 mostly, then Lacetti, C30. Cruze at Monza for the extra power. Starting to try out the Accord but I don't feel it has much sensation of speed.

    Having owned many Honda's I started Race 07 in one for my first year. Switched to a BMW for a year and have been driving the SEAT since. I'm easily two seconds slower than the Accord in the Beemer but think they're both the top cars. I might go back to the Honda, have started driving the BMW again but still love driving the SEAT.

    They may be just as fast as the petrol cars, but they sound like mis-firing tractor! Horrible noise. That's why I stuck to the 07 model before switching to the Astra.

    A while ago the Sunday morning races were all the S2000 cars. WTCC06, 07, 08, STCC1 and the Vectra (STCC2 wasn't out). A few chaps always took the TDI which made for some fun racing with their extra torque but lack of top end.

    The BMS/Mercedes STCC is pretty good. I gave it a try this morning. This is one car I very rarely see get used or let alone mentioned.

    The Cruze is a cool car too, I wish it was RWD.

    Peugeot 407 is my prefered car for leagues and club races. Also like the Audi and used to run that most of the time when they ran the full mix of S2000 (06/07,08 & STCC1) races here

    I Really like the BMWs E30, E46 and the E90's as they are stunning and sound great too. And fun to drive, though I am not that good in them. I also like the new Cruze's

    I think though in RL if I could have any it would be the Lexus IS200

    In real life I drive BMW, but at race07 I am not competitive enough in it, I think it is difrent than real road car, but that is race car and how that works in reality don't know. I love E90 and E46 too. At race07 I drive Corolla so much but I don't know why... Now I thinking about that and I think I love Cruze,Alfa 156 and good old Toledo.

    I always say: There is no boss without stomach, there is no car without six-cylinder. But at my language that is rhyme ;)
