    In order

    93 Nissan 200sx S13 - loved this car, put so much time and effort into it. Owned it for 7 years.
    92 Nissan 200sx S13 - Winter car, not the best but pretty fun!
    92 BMW 325 E36 - Worst car I ever owned. Had so many issues. Ended up with a blown head gasket.
    95 SAAB 900 Turbo Coupe - with Viggen aero and some basic tuning parts.
    00 SAAB 9-3 Turbo - Nothing special, just a daily.
    03 Subaru Impreza WRX STi - Really cool car, enjoyed it a lot.
    08 Audi A5 Coupe - Not a bad car, I ended up selling it because I got a job as a manager at BMW.
    10 BMW 523 F10 - Also really nice, although I never thought the six cylinder engine was enough.
    16 BMW 520d F10 M-Sport - Hands down the best car I have ever owned. Not the fastest but super smooth and refined.

    Not owned so many because I live in a country where you get company cars instead of salary increases..
    So with the company cars included:

    Toyota Auris Hybrid (think small prius, silent and prefect for crossing through a city)
    Opel corsa diesel (horrible with a horribly small engine, trying to get on the motorway was like whisking eggs with the manual)
    Audi A3 sedan, my first "new car" that I got to collect from the dealer wrapped with goodies ect. Good but a bit boring with a small diesel engine.
    Volvo v60 diesel, was commuting around 160km daily on the motorway so this was the perfect car for that.
    Skoda Octavia stationwagon, very good car , diesel automatic . Was almost sad when I got upgraded to the 4series BMW due to promotion.
    Bmw 4 series Grand Coupe diesel- had some small irritating issues and had to send it to the garage a few times. Still beautiful in dark blue and very comfortable.
    BMW 330E (wifes car), suprisingly quick and aggressive- suits my wife and we have crossed Europe in it a few times and it s always a joy to do a roadrunner (mep-mep - vrooom) to get away from some irritating a-hole in the left lane.

    Currently shopping around for a cheap family car - looking at a used Honda Civic station-wagon or minivan.

    I would rock the **** out of that Ford LTD with a 5.0 swap

    When I was younger I never gave anything a second thought if it had more than 2 doors. These days my dream car is like a small station wagon. I'm seriously considering a full on, no expenses spared restoration of a 22-year old Legacy AWD wagon

    Torn between whether I should look at getting a pickup, would be much better for hunting season and way easier for grabbing wood since I started carving or just sticking with a sedan. The Volvo I got a while back has been a trooper.

    1. 1998 Ford Mustang - Drove from 06-12
    It was my first car out of High School, it was fun to drive in the summer but terrible in the winter.

    2010 Hyundai Santa Fe - Drove from 12-18
    To replace the mustang for winter driving, was a massive lemon. Massive issues with the engine which had it in the shop several times in the first 100,000km. When it was approaching the end of its warranty (about 150KM away) the check engine and oil pressure light came on. Took it in and was told it was either a faulty oil pump or a crack in the engine assemble which would have meant a brand new engine. Even though it was still under warranty they refused to cover any of the work, especially if it needed a new engine. After several weeks of going through different level of the dealership and jumping through multiple hoops it finally got resolved (was just the oil pump) and they covered it. But this left a bad taste in my mouth And i will never buy another Hyundai again. Plus the thing was terrible for getting mice in it. Just about every oil change they would build a nest in one place or another.


    2018 Chevy Suburban - 18-current

    3 rows and 8 seats. Bought to replace the Santa Fe with the purpose of accommodating my growing family. So far I am extremely happy with this vehicle, though it does have a turning radius of a boat.

    I've never driven one myself but I've heard some people complaining that the gearbox is a little too confined and that they'll shift into a different gear than they intended on occasion. No idea if these people just suck at driving stick though.

    They recently brought back the ZR1. Can't afford it but I drool at the thought of that machine. Supercar performance for less than supercar cost.

    upload_2019-9-23_16-1-9.png

    I miss that 4runner so much. I sold it after 14 years of ownership to a guy who wanted to turn it into a crawler. He texted me about 4 weeks after the sale and said he crashed it while driving in Boulder. "some ***** pulled out in front of me!"

    sucks. wasn't worth the money and wish i still had it. the silver A4 was awesome too and wish i still had it. the only reliable audi on earth. only cost me $1400 in repairs in 4 years.

    I forgot you had a VR-4. I remember the turbo models having 6th gear in a weird ass place but that thing stuck to any pavement you put it on.

    mine was a hoooooooooooooooooptie for real.

    upload_2019-9-24_12-33-49.png

    since it was a first gen, it was only a 5 speed. First gear was so long you could hit 50mph in it. It was ridiculous. This car pulled like a train but didn't ever feel very fast.

    sounded cool tho


    i got pretty sick of twin turbo v6's after owning both the s4 and this at the same time though. Twin turbos are mad dumb. Maintenance nightmare.

    50 mph in first jesus christ :laugh:

    Nowadays I find that turbos are more utilized on diesel vehicles. Diesel engines are so much more reliable than gas engines anyways and the combustion methodology is more conducive for reliable turbo use. Kind of sucks we don't get some of the cool diesels in America.

    I'm trying to convince my wife that our next car should be manual transmission, since there is low demand in my area for those cars and we should be able to get a good deal. She likes the saving money part and is less than impressed about the shifting gears and using a clutch part. Wish me luck.

    Super good luck.

    Shame about the diesels. Every time I come back from europe I fantasize about a diesel bmw or audi wagon. I like the 30-40mpg combined with endless torque. Models these days are awesome, if not terrible for the planet.

    We both drive manuals now, and always have. they are getting so rare, it sucks. She does want a new car though, and were looking at Tesla. They are stupid expensive to lease though, so I'll probably wait a couple more years and see what the market looks like. Those things are maaaaaaad and I want one for real.
