So...what would you pay for?

(...given the money)

Flying car (price: $200k): Terrafugia - Transition®, the Roadable Light Sport Aircraft : Home
Trip to space (price: $200k): Welcome | Virgin Galactic
Full genome sequencing (price: $5000k): Illumina, Inc.

I am for the flying car - BUT it has to be much better looking + i'll surely prefer a spaceflight - but I want a real flight into space (orbital...moon walk, etc.) and not a plane on 100km above earth. 10x.

Flying car for sure - cut out the bloody traffic...

As for the trip to space - perhaps when there's a Burger King up there...

I'll take the space trip and leave the rest.

If I want to drive, I'll buy a great driving car. If I want to fly, I'll hop on a plane. There are car-boats. They never took off and neither will this flying car.

Don't see the point in sequencing. I can't change it. Im stuck with it. I've also seen the movie Gattaca.

5k will buy you the code to the secret nazi box, then you'll be in the forex millionaires club. In no time you'll be able to buy a spaceship.

would you stick with the traditional white or silver spaceship, or go for some other colour ?

I saw on TV someone had attached a light car to a hot air balloon , shaped like a zeppelin and had a fan to drive it. It was a bit underpowered but worked well.
