    The GTs were below MSRP for a while, but have now recovered to and above MSRP in most cases (low mileage, no accidents, etc). Some of the "no mileage" Heritage cars are right around 2X MSRP... Not bad!

    In my mind there's only one reason why one would buy a 435 without at least seeing what the M4 is going to be - - if you know for sure you can't afford or are not willing to pay more than the cost of the 435

    I for sure cannot afford a brand new M4.

    Speaking of annoying motorcycles and their awful owners. It's Bike's Blue's and BBQ this weekend. So glad I'm out of town. A few years ago my current girlfriend had an idiot crash his motorcycle into her parked car.

    Oh yeah. There was a great video I saw back of some dumbass kid rolling his M3 down the side of a mountain. Wonder what would happen if his insurance co saw that video...

    Eww.

    BMWs have lost all appeal to me. The new "4" series is particularly atrocious. I refuse to admit the M4 even exists.

    Not that it is directly comparable to the M3, but my money would be on the C7 Corvette.

    I want to flog the C7 so badly. But in terms of long-term ownership, I would rather the M3/M4/whatever it's called.

    I wish the current 4s more closely resembled the concept version we saw months ago. That one looked a lot better.

    I still think it looks pretty good, though. As for the M4, I'm just not a fan of a turbo charged six. A souped up straight six a la the e46 would be better, methinks.

    Still find it crazy that people park these supercars on the street in NYC. Saw this "MCLUVN" MP4-12C on Broadway today and it was surrounded by people taking pictures, interesting for a subdued supercar. Borrowed pics from ExoticSpotter because the license plate is awesome.

    There was a Lambo Murcielago someone parked often on the street near one of my old apartments. The owner treated it like shit and never washed or detailed it. Someone once used their finger on the passenger window to write "WASH ME".

    With a working tailgate it would be better than an old 4x2 toyota pickup as a mini hauler. Would be great for taking the bike somewhere. Hate that flat black paint though.

    The Hilux is a better looking version of the North American Tacoma.

    We do get the huge Toyota Tundra with an optional 5.7 liter V8.

    The hi-lux came first and you want a diesel in a truck like that.


    You don't fuck with Hi-Lux's
