    I figured this section of Men's Style forum would have some interesting car that reflect a sense of refined taste. A lot of the styles in this forum are somewhat traditional; do your cars reflect that as well? Right now I drive an old [crappy] '93 BMW 318i Cabrio, but I have an '89 BMW 325i (E30) that is in the process of a complete restoration (about 90% completed). When that baby is ready, I'll feel a lot better handing my keys to the valet!

    There are other threads on this not in "men's clothing". But yeah I'll play, I drive a metro card.

    If you truly cared about your car, you would not valet park.

    I put it in here for a different point of view that's all...

    Balderdash! You just make sure you use the valet key. [​IMG]

    I drive a 2001 Jetta 5sp. Its a quirky little car but I like it.

    Car? Why would you want a car? '94 Tacoma 4x4 with 224,000+ on the odo.

    Respek. That will take you through the apocalypse and back.

    I drive an Audi A4 Avant, navy blue. Wife has an Infiniti G37x. Love them both. But if I were to buy a truck, it would be the Tacoma. Except I'd totally attach a winch and machine gun mount just because.

    '03 Infiniti G35 coupe. When I paid it off, I thought of replacing it with the newer G37, but I prefer the styling of mine, and the raw sportier feeling of a first year run, imperfect sport GT. The new version got softer and more luxurious. So, I'll sped the money on an '85 911 Carrera to play with.

    Only ballers like me drive a Honda CRV (2011-4WD). The lease on my Volvo S60 is up at the end of January, loved that car, but not big enough for two kids. We signed the lease before we had any three years ago.

    Right about that one. Still, 328 hp is just gratuitous in a car that weighs like twelve pounds. Also, the VSC on my wife's car kicks in just when things are getting interesting.

    Just curious what you mean about the S60 being too small. I have two kids and they both fit fine in a mid-size sedan, even my A4 which has a tiny backseat.

    Very trad, Jaguar XJ8 Vanden Plas, in merlot with the ivory hides.

    It's a 98, but in very good nick. I'm a bit fanatical about keeping it cleaned and polished.

    It seems less ostentatious to drive an old posh car.

    We just bought an Audi TT coupe for my wife, so now I have the best of both worlds. The Audi's a really fun little German sport car (which I get to borrow occasionally) and then I have the big sedan for everyday driving.

    Yeah, the VSC is a b*tch. You can turn it off, which just partially impairs it, or install an aftermarket module which really turns it completely off. Learning to control the tail of a RWD in the twisties is really fun.

    Yeah, I've always found those statements curious. My G35 still has space for an additional car seat!!![​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] If we need to haul stuff, we have the wife's Pathfinder.

    I have a 2010 S4.

    I had a Ford Taurus with a third of a million miles on it that was still going strong before it was killed in a car accident.

    Now I have a Jeep with 120k and I plan to drive that forever.

    Wow, 2 kids in 3 years? Not too bad [​IMG]

    I drive an 08' Lexus IS 350. Couldn't live with the 250, couldn't afford the F and still buy shoes so I had to compromise somewhere.

    Just got rid of an '04 Mazda RX-8 which I loved dearly, but was a lemon. Now I have a '10 Mazdaspeed 3, which is lots of fun to drive and has a fair amount of utility, but is decidedly made for 16 year olds.
