    My new whip. Yeah, it's as boring as possible. But I own it outright and bought it without a dime from my parents. So I feel pretty good. 2007 Chevy Cobalt LS (four-door).

    I am secretly ashamed that I don't own something WASPy.

    What else have you looked at? I'm considering a vehicle in this category for my wife this fall and have just started gathering information.

    She currently has an MB ML, so that's in the mix. The GLK is sub-par, vs. things in this class. BMW X6 (how the fuck do you see out that rear windshield?), Volvo XC60 and 90, Infiniti FX35 and MDX.

    The Q5 is far and away the best vehicle. It's going to come down to the lease terms.

    My daily, a 1991 325i. It's a go-cart for grown-ups!

    You buy the $2,200 package with rear view camera.

    Pretty sure that only works in reverse. We test drove one. I like to see what's happening behind me when I'm going forward too. [​IMG]

    Obviously. In theory you should be able to get someone to change the software to allow the rear view camera to work when driving forward, but that will probably cost more than it's worth.

    Sticking your head out of the window is probably a bad idea as well, so I'm going to make a bold statement here; buy another car.

    If you noted the post you originally quoted, this is exactly our plan.

    I fear Connemera's car looks like something a gay man who works at a Sephora might drive.

    Mine is a steely blue color. Too masculine for Sephora homosexuals.

    I drove on of these mofos throughout college. Liked it a lot especially in a parking lot full of boring X3's.

    Not a car, but I drive/ride it, so thought I'd post it here:
