1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Had a '93 XJ6 when I was living in the US. Big, smooth and very fast. God I loved that car... [​IMG]

    For the longest time, I was driving a 1992 Ford Station Wagon. The thing was a Front Wheel Drive beast with the 3.8 v6 in it. After I crashed it up, I just didn't care for it anymore. I'm current driving for a week now a 1991 Honda Civic Hatchback. The thibg has kick, but not as much as my wagon did.

    Ah, the 91. Before Honda started going cheap on the suspension design. Plus it is lightweight [​IMG]

    P.s.
    Wife has a 95 hatchback. It always surprises me how taut the handling is on that thing.

    As noted in other posts, my 99 BMW was totalled.

    I've finally caught back up (property damage settlement only)

    I actually had to buy 2 cars this month (long story, bad idea of my fiance at that time but had to replace her car too).

    But - her car - 2000 VW Passat V6 fully loaded. Nice touring car.
    My car - 93 BMW 325IS project car. I actually have a decent
    starting point, its just about 50 little things on it. Not end of the
    world things, but aggrevating. It'll be about spring before its
    tip top.

    I'll upgrade us both once we move to a better house. That's the top
    priority.

    And my handy bought new 87 CRX still rocks the house, its just not
    enough car to hold 4 ppl.

    Sorry, I forgot.

    I've also got the lambo murciologo...with heated and
    air conditioned seats.

    I'm searching the couch cushions now for gas money......

    New to the forum, spent about 3 hours reading various topics on fashion, nightlife and such. Sorry to bump a somewhat old thread, but I was pleased to find a small niche here dedicated to our automotive tastes. That said, here's a picture of the unpractical car. The daily is an E.B. Explorer. [​IMG] - Jay

    I recently traded in my '98 BMW M3 for an Audi A6 4.2 (V8). The Audi is lightyears ahead of the BMW in technology and safety, though I miss the instant acceleration and loud, raspy engine of the BMW. But, I needed a bigger car plus the M3 needed about $3-4K in various "old age" repairs (brakes, shocks, clutch). I definitely like having awd in the Audi.

    I don't know about the A6 version, but that engine in the S4 has a great exhaust note. It is a touch on the quiet side for what it is, but it's quite nice.

    I don't think I would admit to that, on this forum. Much better to say:

    Ahh, I'm a high school student. I can't wear good shoes every day or they would come home a mess. I wear what my mom buys me in terms of most clothes except when I spring for some good dressy wear!

    Plus I'm an ex-Miami resident, cut me some slack on the sandals [​IMG]
