Czechia, 2019. Evening
“Okay, what did you do to the car this time” the young woman asked, looking at the disassembled 2013 SC-R, her hands on her hips, and judging by her expression, she was shocked.
“Uh, hey sweetie” her boyfriend climbed out from under the car.
“Just a few upgrades… erm… you know, new exhausts…”
“Does the car need to get any louder?” She said, although it clearly wasn’t a question."
“This car was supposed to be our daily car, not your project." she said in a complaining manner.
“Ugh… Yeah, I know” He looked at her, “Don’t worry about it though”.
“And why should I not?” She asked, looking slightly annoyed but also curious.
“Trust me, it’s all good,” He smiled and held her hand, “Let’s just go to sleep now, I promise to not to start tampering with it again”
“Well… Okay, fine!” She was even more confused, but agreed.
“Don’t forget to wash yourself, you’re all dirty,” She chuckled a bit, before kissing him goodnight and heading off.
Nikolas was at his friend’s house,they had their bottles of non-alcoholic beer open, and they were just spending their free time talking about their cars and girls.
“You know, this is quite bad” Nik said as he was browsing a car magazine
His friend Ondra, looked at him “What happened? Did you screw up the exhausts?”
“No, Monika caught me working on the car and probably got the idea of my surprise by now” Nik answered, taking a sip from his bottle, looking slightly anxious.
“Yeah, your girl is smart” Ondra laughed, “So, I assume you are buying the car sooner now? I mean, you already can afford it.”
“Yeah, we are buying the car as soon as possible,” Nik nodded, “We would have to rely on cars that are in stock at the dealerships, and I know few around here, they should have cars ready to be picked with minimal wait."
after some time has passed, it was time to go, they had some solid ideas by now though
“Alright bro! See you tomorrow then. We will pick a nice ride for your girlfriend hopefully” Ondra said as they were saying goodbyes to each other.
And with that agreed on, Nik left in his project car, his new pipes laying down the loud rumble of a V6.
A car of european C/D segment, maybe even E, if you can fit in. (Can be from overseas, does not have to be european)

High Priority :
Although Monika is a good driver, car that handles better and is easier to drive is sure more welcome than something that will try to spin in every corner.
If something were to happen to Monika, it would surely be bad. Thus, Nik wants to pick from vehicles with high safety ratings.
The car needs to be very comfortable, obviously. Nik wants only the best for his sweetheart.
With the both the fuel prices in CZ, and the tuning done to SC-R, the new car needs to be economical. Also, every saved coin is good coin. (But do not make hypermilers)
The car must look good, be pleasing to eye, and must be era-accurate.
The less the car costs, both in price and maintenence, the better.
Medium priority :
The car should be prestigious to some extent. Simple as that, if Nik wanted something cheap, he would buy a Sandero.
The car will likely serve as a family car someday, and needs to be practical, in case Monika goes shopping or so. (Hint : SC-R with a rollcage does not have much space in it)
The car should be fun to drive, nobody likes boring cars. Especially no-one young.
If the car will need service too often, it is not worth it. Car needs to be on road, not on jacks.
Anything else is not receiving any priority
