    In this case, the devil has good taste.

    Wonderful choice. My neighbor has one, and I find myself mirin it whenever he has it out of the garage on rare occasions.

    I've got a F31 since a few days - it's not a disturbing sight in normal conditions. The flamboyant and saturated color with the matte paint and the direct sunlight make it look much worse. Also, normally you don't look at the car from an elevated position.

    My new vehicle:

    This is my third Wrangler and my 7th Jeep overall. A bit of me died when I got rid of my two-door JK yesterday but I have a three-year-old who loves riding in my Jeeps and putting a carseat into the back of the two-door version with the roof still on is such a major PITA. I told my wife that either I upgrade to the four-door or we move somewhere to the South or Southwest where I can drive topless all year. Unfortunately, she opted for the new Jeep instead of moving to warmer climes.

    Oh well... maybe I can convince her that we should at least take a trip to Moab now.

    So following this logic, it shouldn't matter what your car looks like since you don't see it from the inside.. ?

    Embargo lifted - M3/4 reviews are out. Looks like BMW hit another home run.

    Following that logic, one should turn down, say a Ferrari if it looks horrible from bellow? I say it's just a matter of perspective, literally.


    I would like to have Italian rural roads here, especially those around Lago di Garda and Iseo.

    I would just like the autostradas, where people actually know what the right pedal is for and how to merge lanes.

    You're right. There are scenic roads in those areas of the lake that are unique. Many of those roads have been seen in many movies. But you can not go fast. In those areas there should be a nice convertible, is not it?

    Does anyone have any experience shipping / transporting cars for a move?

    I'm looking to ship my car from Texas to Massachusetts and the quotes I'm getting are in the $850 ballpark and wondering if that's standard or pretty competitive.

    These would be for open containers.

    I'm wondering if it'd be a bad idea to just drive the car instead. Gas would be cheaper, though I'd be adding 1700 miles to my odometer, affecting resale value, and driving for several days kinda sounds shitty.

    my brother moved a car from NY to LA, but I forget the cost. Doubt it was above the 800 mark. I'll ask when he wakes up.

    That is pretty reasonable. I usually pay $1k to $1.2k to ship one of my classics up to Pebble/ Monterey from LA. And that's with a special handler for classic cars and, of course, enclosed.

    I had cars shipped to me from the East Coast for $1.5k. Again, enclosed.

    So 850 is pretty much standard. You might get a tad cheaper for open if you shop around.

    I doubt that adding 1.7k miles will affect any resale value whatsoever on a modern car unless you plan on leaving a very precious/ rare car within break in miles (e.g. under 1k miles).
