Probably should of wrote more on the question, but I have seat leon cupra R 225, (4 cylinder turbo) I am thinking of getting a V6 just wanted to know which people prefer?

I like boost and turbo lag the feeling of power building up then it comes all at once

but the sound of a v6 and the torque low down hmmm

what about V8 or V12, Me I have had the V8 (rover 3500) and loved it but I loved my Rover 220 and the Cupra 280 because they tell you they are working and its nice to leave a 3 litre v6 standing with a standard looking car

Love the nissan 350z but its not a daily drive and the reason I did not buy one of them when I got the Cupra was because all the good reviews did say that fantastic car but you could not drive a long distance and still be comforatble.

It feels a bit like coilovers great for lowering the car but not good for daily driving on normal roads.

With regards to the v8 how about Jaguar XJ 4.0 V8 XJR 4dr granted its a 98 but hey they are still great cars.

Anyway back to reality love the Nissan but I do think you need to also add in what do you want to use the car for, (eg daily or just weekend fun). My daughter had a friend whose dad had a BMW Z3 as a weekend car, he said to me great to enjoy the sun but no good for going any distance.

Yeah 350z isn't a great long distance for comfort and not much space for anything but it ticks the right boxs for me.
Will try the 350z as a daily and keep my cupra r for a bit, I don't want to sell the cupra really but can't justify two cars.
Would love a jaguar V8 especially supercharged but they are all automatics and I prefer manuals for the added driving experience. So something v6 is the compromise.

well its a great car for the money and you can do a lot of power tuning if you are that way inclined.

I think like all Cupra's they are a woolf in sheeps clothing.

Lots of power, great handling and you can use is as a daily drive and you don't look like a boy racer

V6 is nice, but one you get used to the power you've not got anywhere to go (without breaking the bank).
At least with the turbo motor a few bolt on mods and a remap will get that zing back.

The first one that comes to mind would be an old 4.2 S4.

VAG familiarity, proper V8 and manual

Saloon or avant, both would be practical too.

Just a thought
