So it's cars we drive and cars we sold now huh?
How about cars we want to buy.
Or simply, The Cars Thread.
Let's broaden the scope for our stakeholders (us).
It's a good movie, I like the tow truck.
Is it just my experience or do other people agree 99.9% of Mustang drivers are going to be going at least 10 mph under the speed limit and accelerate like a 90 year old using a walker going uphill?
Check your privilege, brah.
Around here, you just described Corvette drivers.
Them too. Doubly slow if a convertible Vette.
around these parts, people buy Mustangs so they can put straight pipes on them and just rumble around town.
Another example of why Neil Peart is the man.
Just when everyone had forgotten how Canadian you are, you drop some Neil Peart praise.
Fuck. I need the estimable forvm's help.
I made the mistake of taking my 2007 328xi coupe to the dealer to have new tires put on. $1200, bullshit. He claims he only marks each tire up $10 and the alignment is free.
They're also telling me I have "hairline cracks" in 3 of my rims (they haven't looked at the 4th yet). $400 per rim.
And a $700 oil leak.
Sounds like a load of shit to me but anyways, here I am. One tire is completely done so to even drive it off the premises I'm in for the $1200.
Unless I trade in. Default choice for me is a 428xi.
Is this thing a decent vehicle? Worth looking into? Or should I be looking at Audi? Other suggestions in this class?
I hate having to knuckle under and go automatic, grrrrr, but it's all they have on the lot.
I've heard great things, but I would want a manual transmission in that thing. That said, give it a try - you may like it.
