For some reason not that many people seem to like estates, that being said I still wish there was a few more. As far as I can tell there are only three.

The Regina, which is kinda cool (I love the wood roof rack) but far too slow to be useful for anything really.

I like the European roots of the Ingot, but it's front wheel drive and therefore useless.

Finally the Stratum, which is actually a pretty fun car, but the design and things like the only exhaust, kinda force the car into the ricer category, which is a shame.

We need something like a sporty European estate, something along the lines of a RS4, and maybe something a little more rugged like an Allroad or XC70. To give these cars more purpose, something like a third row seat (which would function similar to rear seats in the vans) would be awesome for online.

Thought you meant real estate. But yes, I welcome the idea of a Tailgater Avant. This time with the V10 it was supposed to come with.

Bless our brethren over the seas. What he is asking for is more station wagons. Everyone loves a shooting brake surely? i.e.

We've got so much in common language-wise, it never ceases to amuse me that there are so many little differences.

 

For instance, I believe that

 

"I had a crash that dented the wing and bonnet, so I got the torch from the boot and walked down the pavement."

 

would translate as

 

"I had a wreck that dented the fender and hood, so I got the flashlight from the trunk and walked down the sidewalk."

 

Crazy Americans...

Close, we tend to shirk responsibility, I believe your American translation should read like this:

 

"I had an accident that dented the fender and hood, so I got the flashlight from the trunk and walked down the sidewalk."

 

Although we would probably not walk, opting to call a cab or friend instead.

Across the pond, they call station wagons Estate cars.

The best one that the Americans use is "f*ggot" when in the UK, preferably Scotland it's a meat product so it's not that offensive at all. "What, I'm a meat product?"

 

Also to point out, London is a city, not a town.

Being in the UK, this is what sprang to mind when you mentioned estates

Mate I dont 'av a fag brah, im minted to tha' blunt.

 

Pretty much what this country has gotten to, illiterate teens who make up their own words and language.

 

Not to go off topic though, think of the Estate as an hatchback with an extended back end. Real Estate is housing.

A "shooting brake" is akin to a two door wagon, named after the classic horse drawn carriage used to ferry hunting parties.

 

Its not an estate/wagon.

 

And, to make it as low brow as possible, here's a perfect example, the Ford Pinto wagon:

Eighteen seasons of Top Gear have conditioned me to automatically think vehicle, and not housing-related property, when encountering the term "estate". I agree, more estate cars would be a welcome addition.

I'd love to have the Volvo 760 station wagon in the game, since that's the car I drive in real life.

If you're going for a Volvo go for a bit more style

because you used it to drive to and from your estate, and needed more room to haul cargo than your saloon.

or, in real proper english:

because you used it to drive to and fro a station, like a train or bus station, and needed more room to haul cargo than your sedan.

I never liked people calling a sedan a saloon. Even clarkson says sedan at least most of the time. I think.
