What do you drive?

Yeah that’s the one I was looking at 👍  but also wanted the Brembos. I figured that and a Torsen with 3.73 gears would top it off. 

Brembos are nice but there are just as nice/nicer out there.  3.73s nice too if you plan on boost, otherwise 4.10s are a better option.

Just thought I'd update, I'm still driving my old 1999 Dodge Dakota with the 3.9L V-6.  Approaching 240,000 miles.  I mostly use it for occasionally commuting to work and hauling stuff any more.  If I need a load of gravel, an appliance hauled, etc., that's what it does.  I used it the other day to haul a bunch of stuff for my brother to build a gate across his driveway.

 

My wife's car is a 2006 Ford Taurus, but we're shopping around for a replacement because even though it's a newer car with lower mileage, it has turned into a money and rust pit compared to the ol' Dodge.

So what kind of vehicle do you currently drive and why? Do you like it? 

 

I recently bought a 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 ES. Standard transmission. Here’s my take on it:

 

PROS:

Excellent, super cheap price tag compared to other vehicles in its class.

Super excellent gas mileage.

Nice, loud radio with big HD colorful touch screen and Bluetooth.

Backup camera

Power windows 

Power locks

ABS Breaks

Big trunk space

5 cup holders. 3 in front, two in back.

Comfortable seats, not the best, but not the worst either

Nice leg room

$20 fills the tank. Lasts 2 weeks (my case)

Great warranty: 10 years or 100,000 miles

Very cute, good looking design. Pretty colors.

 

CONS:

3 cylinder, 75hp, slow, noisy engine.

0-60 in 10 mins (just kidding)

Small 14” tires that don’t seem to go with its big body

Feels a bit weird at 60mph or higher. Maybe due to the very small tires.

 

I bought it because I just can’t spend too much on a vehicle right now. Rather have that than a Ford. Overall the car is not bad. It’s a great car to get you to work and back, pick the kids up from school, go grocery shopping or just ride around town or the city (Daytona Beach in my case)

If I was to get on I-4 to go to Orlando or another state or big city, I would definitely rent a bigger vehicle as I just don’t feel too safe driving that thing on

I-4. It feels like a street legal golf cart...LOL

 

Other than that, if you are looking for a cheap, good looking ride to get you to and back from work or school or to get you around your city, and if you don’t care for speed or bells and whistles, then it’s a fine car.

It's been 4.5 years and I still have the E46 M3 manual!

 

It's been a costly experience, but I knew this might be the case as it's a 14 year old M car that originally cost some £50,000 and still costs in maintenance with that of a 59k performance car of the time.

 

I do share the driving experience with friends anf family though as much I can. Non car people especially as seeing their faces is priceless. Everyone enjoys the modern classics :)

Very nice, that is one clean M3! I know the E30/36 get lots of love, but I just love the looks of the E46, and is my favorite gen. of M3.

Having seen E30 M3 prices, I can see why they get a lot of love! Many E46s are rotting away these days so maybe in a few more years mine will be one of the last few remaining on UK roads!

I've got a 2017 F150 Super Crew.  Living in Edmonton, having a pickup is the way to go.  My girlfriend has a jetta that I drive to work (downtown), and it feels so tiny.

I drive a 2001 Chevy Malibu in super stylish mustard brown. It is pretty much a generic sedan. I'd prefer something smaller, but it is what I have. Cost me all of $3000 a decade ago. Works fine, A/C is decent, meets my needs. I don't drive enough (or have enough money) to justify upgrading.

 

I'll probably drive it until it dies, as I did my previous car (1984 Mercedes 190e, which I loved, perfect size, got that in '96), but I think it'll last a while. I have had no problems with it so far. It isn't cheaply made or anything, so I appreciate that much.

I forgot about this thread; definitely time to revive it, as I got a new car about a week-and-a-half ago, and I've finally gone electric with a BMW i3!

purchased my first new car in almost 12 years, a 2020 Ford Explorer ST with a few added on packages(Technology Package and ST Street Pack)! Ill get photos when it returns from the shop. I am having tint added to the front windows and a ceramic coating applied to the paint. I've driven it shortly and so far I absolutely love it!

Currently driving a 2020 BMW 530e xDrive.

 

I got the car to tip my feet into the water on an EV and I'm glad I did. I didn't go full EV as I live in the city and street park so I'm not guaranteed access to my curbside charger.

this baby!. i got an amazing deal.  considering the brand new model is out for more then a year, the old ones lose value pretty damn fast (which is great for me)

 

It is pretty much all i ever wanted in a car.  The infortainment system SUCKS.  but who cares.  I can connect Android Auto. 


But the drive itself is what I love. And the looks, obviously.  I feel at home there.

personally, this old model lasted 7 years with minor changes.  and i do truly believe that that shape is a classic that is going to be good looking forever.  I mean, the new model just changed a few things, and made it more aggressive as expected. but that does not mean my car design is out dated.  no sir, this design forever!

Since taking those pics last month I have different wheels (Dark Bronze BMW 18" Styling M135 M double spoke) and it is in the shop getting a M Tech 2 kit.

 

When I pick it up and after the snow has cleared I'll post new pics 😜

New ride.  2021 Toyota Rav 4 XLE.  Traded in a 2014 Honda CRV.  Got $10k for the CRV so a nice trade in.  The little lady and I will be doing more road trips so wanted something newer/nicer for that.   Wanted a diff color than the normal  grays, black, whites, or reds.  Was either this  color (blue flame), or the Lunar Rock.  But the later did not have a sun roof so we went with the Blue Flame.  I am liking the color tho and will not be hard to find in a parking lot for sure.  Drives nice, Apple/Android Auto as well.  Live in AZ but decided to go with the XLE as the model higher has the leather seats.  And leather seats in 110+ weather does not feel good when wearing shorts.   Car came with the convenience package package which includes things like the moon roof and push button trunk open/close.  Color looks better in the sun.  Brighter.
