    I looked around but I could not find a picture of a pink VW Golf Cabriolet so you'll have to imagine it [​IMG]

    Bastards.

    kronik drives a beat up old Camry which is now paid for. It, for reference, is not pink. The next car is either a used M3 or Cayman.

    Nice choices though, but IMHO the M3 should definitely be bought with some sort of warranty.
    Actually, Edmunds.com just recently bought a used last-generation M3 as a longterm-test car.

    +1. Used high-performance cars are a great way to empty your wallet. Engine rebuilds for the E30 M3 are around $10K.

    :faint: What about clutch and stuff like that that will probably give out before the whole engine?

    So what do you drive if you need a sedan and like to drive like a nut and don't want a japanese car?

    BMW, Audi, Merc, and what, VW? Maybe a sporty Volvo?

    I like BMW because they are the same price and slightly more reliable than Audis, which I've had lousy experience with. BMWs are fun to drive, and that's way up there with my needs in a car.

    Yet another reason I want to move somewhere I don't need a car.

    +1 Unfortunately, the wife won't move anywhere but further south.

    Hummers are not only extremely douchey, the other largest segment of Hummer drivers tend to be red faced, fat, blond women around 40 years of age. They always wear sleeveless shirts (due to always being hot as they are fat) and have their marshmallow arms fully exposed. I find they tend to be either on the cell phone (never an in-car blue tooth, but have one glued to their ears) and the little terrors they are transporting are always loud and far from house broken.

    No, don't like hummer drivers.

    Especially Hummer H2's. There was a period, in the late nineties, when pretty much every Mercedes driver drove like a complete moron. It seems to be better these days though. Perhaps it's merely that everyone else seems to drive like a moron now!

    1) I drive a 3 series...I might be an asshole, but I'm no douchebag. Well...maybe a little, but I don't drive like an idiot

    2) Benz drivers still think they can do whatever they want on the road, and they still drive like idiots. Especially the ones driving C/E/M class'

    I disagree. Hummer is the official car of douchebags.
