Medium sized I guess. Miniature American Shepherd, about 30-40lbs once fully grown.if I were to get a SUV I would say X3 M40 would do, you have a big dog or small dog?
The only other wagon would be the Jaguar XF wagon, but it won't be as sporty as an AMG or M line.COVID has completely altered my choice of a car. I’m planning on selling/trading my M2 in and getting an SUV/crossover or wagon.
I’m getting a dog and don’t want to deal with the hassle of my interior getting scuffed or trying to fit a dog in a sedan. I hike most weekends and am taking the dog with me, so it’s not infrequent transport.
Unfortunately the last-gen E63 wagon is about as rare as hen’s teeth and retails for nearly the price of the current gen sedan. I can’t think of any other sporty and fun wagon’s on the market.
For SUVs I’ll probably consider Macan S/GTS, X3 M40, GLC43. I’m not planning on getting the top line SUV because I’m putting money aside to likely move somewhere more remote and rural.
I don’t need a ridiculous amount of ground clearance as my hiking trails originate from dirt parking lots.
Are there any other crossover, wagon, SUVs that are fun that I’m forgetting?
It's H-pattern.so it's a reality, when I heard it I thought it was just a go no where concept, interesting he took sequential instead of H pattern, is that the only sequential (but not automated) road legal car out there (and fresh out manufacture, not some refit)?
The engine response time doesn’t sound very enjoyable to drive. Maybe it’s the rev on a bench test, otherwise you’ll snap your neck in stop and go traffic or at stoplights.This is it. The greatest ever ICE car, as well as the technology’s last hurrah, has arrived :
The first sketches of the legendary McLaren F1 were put to paper in September of 1988, though it’s likely the earliest seeds of the car were planted in Gordon Murray’s brain long before. That car was perhaps the most ambitious performance car ever created, and its has never been replicated or...jalopnik.com
I thought I saw a Taycan on the road coming the other way as I was riding my motorcycle on a twisty two-lane a few days ago. A few moments later it registered that it was actually a 918--which is weird because when I look at pictures of them online they are very obviously different.I finally saw a Taycan on the road and thought it was a great looking car. Better looking than the Panamera but that is not a high bar...
if you're willing to buy, dealers are willing to order and sell.Logistical question, how hard and expensive is it to get new OEM wheels generally? Let's say you have perfectly good set on a car but they are a design you don't like -- are dealers ever open to trading for another option on that particular model?
Throttle response has been something Murray's prioritized for a long time, and it can be made controllable by the response curve of the throttle: for example, the response at initial throttle tip-in could be slow and gradual, so it's not a binary thing where you get nearly everything. The max revving speed is only going to happen at wide open throttle, so it's not the kind of thing you'd experience in stop-and-go traffic. But with a lot of torque down low and the car's light weight, you will need a careful right foot in any case. Shifting speeds will be very fast as well with this kind of engine response.The engine response time doesn’t sound very enjoyable to drive. Maybe it’s the rev on a bench test, otherwise you’ll snap your neck in stop and go traffic or at stoplights.

My appreciation of cars is very superficial. I started on the Maser route via a GT3200 that was actually the wife's but she said it was 'too powerful' for her, so 'reluctantly' I swapped it for the Alfa 147 I had at the time (soon swapped to a Brera which was a very nice car, I might get another one but it had it's problems). Then a couple of bog standard QPs, until I got the 2010 QP Sports GTS which was a really nice car to drive. But then a truck killed that (luckily I was out of the car at the time and only got hit with a glancing blow, by my own car!).You will definitely miss the Maser. In addition to the RAV Hybrid we have some performance cars, and it is a night and day experience going from the RAV to the sports cars...or even my wife's MB AMG C43. Still, once you get into the mind set of seeing what the most miles per gallon you can get is, its not so bad. Overall, it serves a purpose...just doesn't get the heart racing the way the other cars do.
