My Coupe is Interlagos:

Yes, epb, and at least another member have Coupes (both black, I think).

I haven't seen an Artega, but I did see a Karma on the road, once -- totally blew me away. Gorgeous car.

lol, don't get me wrong, the vanquish would be proudly owned by me! Those things are rare so, just from a collectible standpoint, I'd have no problem owning one.

Interlagos, such a beautiful color...if it wasn't for the alpine white, I would've gone intelagos or sepang. The metal flake really brings out the shape of the car.

I absolutely despised the karma in photos, but in person the thing is just stunning. No other car in it's class has the presence that the karma does. I still can't stand the diamond shaped graphics but it looks awesome in motion.

Their car has been very well taken care of and I'm quite sure that they were original owners. I like the zip of my civic but there are some issues with it: passenger window doesn't work, no AC, bit of rust along the rear passenger wheel- nothing mechanical.
To be honest, I know little about automatics and even less about cars that aren't 72 MGBs.
Would it be wise to take their car and sell my civic or am I better off declining their generous offer? Torn. Keep in mind "sell both and buy an M6" isn't something I can just "do". Getting married in five weeks.

you might actually get a decent price on the hatchback if you sell to some honda tuning type dork - if the bodywork is without too many dents you could probably get $1500-2000 for it. If you stress that it gets like 45mpg, you might be able to get even more if you put it on ebay with '45mpg' in the subject field. Seems like a decent tradeoff if you just need AC and working windows for the summer. Both of those cars are from the era of Hondas that go forever, especially the Accord.

I saw the Scion FR-S for the first time, driving down the expressway. it was in sort of a copper color, and man it looked amazing. this thing is going to be a tuner's wet dream. styling is very aggressive, distinctive, and the reviewers all say the performance is there. pretty much fully optioned for $25k (iirc the only significant option is an upgraded sound system). the only criticism i have after the drive by is that the exhaust note is too quiet, but I'm sure the aftermarket will take care of that.

it was being driven by a woman with kids in the front seat and back. when I spotted it and realized what it was I started maneuvering in traffic to get a closer look. I was in the GT3 and it seems like the kids asked their mom to get closer to me because we both started picking through traffic and ended up together...the kids gave me a peace sign and I gave them a thumbs up. kind of funny in a car-geekish kind of way

Yeah, thanks for the reply Keith. It'll be hard to see the car go but I'm going to take the trade. The thought of another year needlessly sweating my bag off in that civic just isn't pleasing. Just needed someone to tell me I wasn't downgrading... But with these cars I don't think it matters.

Either will have a decent resale, had both and the accord was a definite step up, sold it at 150k mile bc I was bored of it but got decent return and it had a lot of life left in it. My dad kept out old civics and he could t go to the shop without getting multiple offers from the tuner kids.

not only some. that's the reason. you need 4 km/h more with the european system, though biggrin.gif

'we'll talk', lol, like I give a rats ass, you are a little punk, talking crap about 8k rpm at 60 mph on the highway, that is not possible
the limit is 6600
the car will downshift if run at that for 10 sec
you intentionally tried to destroy rented property
and you think there is anything you can teach anyone?  you think people want to hear what you have to say?
seriously delusional

step away from the computer for about a year or so big boy

599 GTO is my favorite design currently produced car, unfortunately doesn't come with a proper transmission.

Here's my buddy's m shoe

Not a fan of the wing but it is tracked frequently if any consolation.

599 GTO is impressive but unless you're a pro driver and live near a track, I don't see the point. It's an unforgiving extreme track machine which comes at quite a price. It doesn't even look nice. But as a show off machine it's indeed quite good.

Most of us wouldn't even exploit a BMW E46 M3 to its full potential on a track shog[1].gif
