IX-Lemon Life.

The “final solution” to me is IX for family car and commuter and Carrera T special ordered to replace the taco as it’s the only sports car that can take a kid and a dog.

Also, why exactly do you NEED an SUV payment? You don't, until your kid gets older. Leave a seat in the Taco, leave a seat in the Electric Bimmer, and enjoy your life, to the extent currently possible. :dat: Champagne tastes on a self imposed beer budget is tough.

There would be no payment, on anything but another IX. Can a man enjoy life here? lol A question you should ask yourself. What vehicle, on your lenghthy list, would be worth the payment to you? If I was certain I would probably already buy one… I want the big boy RR the most. But it costs 3k a month

Cadillac is also charging $1500 for their "on star" and "connected services" which also REQUIRES AS SUBSCRIPTION. What kind of crock of shit is that?

So I am still open to suggestions in case I missed something. I did give this quite a bit of thought and I am just not currently loving anything.... A slightly used Tahoe/Caddy/Jewcon would be nice... but they are stupid money and seem cheaper NEW... Which is also insane. I also hear that Escalades ...

I guess they aren’t selling at all… I don’t even know where a Nissan :dillerman: near me is, so haven’t seen one there either. I’m also quite perplexed on the Nismo being auto only, don’t think anyone wants an auto Z. I think the stealershits were marking them up to the sky... so coupled with the f...

This wasn’t really on my list yet. Acura seems kind of a dead brand ? No? I don't really understand what a dead brand is. I don't think it's going anywhere any time soon. But for the price other options have way more street cred. Buick GMC Mitsubishi Acura Infiniti Chrysler They all make some sort ...

Rivian will still be around by the time PLAC juices start flowing through your veins again. Too bad Acura F'D up the trans programming on the MDX Type S.

Gberg's Alpo Gorf with a bit of Plac Profit

Interested to hear what you end up getting. Good rebates on pirelli right now. The scorpion is a highly rated tire if you’re just staying on pavement. Yeah. Dudebro at tire rack recommended either the mall scorpion as plus 3 or the continental crosscontact LX25. He also said there’s no difference w...

I don't think it's pointless. I think a lot of manufacturers tune for 0-60 and the quarter. The acceleration part tells you how much your car has left on the table after that. And the braking test is totally legit. If your car can hero stop from 150............it's got bad ass brakes. I totally agr...

Rage4 needs tires according to the :dillerman: . He says they're at 4/32 but I'll check it myself when I get it home. Only have 38k on it so it seems odd to need tires now. Anyone know of a decent crossover tire? The Michelin Primacy A/S that came with it kinda sucked. 4/32 seems ok for another 5k ...

dealer buddy said roughly 10% of cars off the truck go straight to the body shop Supposedly body issues get fixed at the vpc and if it's a big enough issue then they tell the dillership.

I'm taking advantage of my free oil change/tire rotation at the Toyota rape palace this AM. They have a used GR Corolla in the showroom I checked out. I must say, what a shitbox! I'm sure it's fun to drive but I'd have a tough time dropping $40K on this thing. It makes the 86 feel like a fuckin' Ma...
