What is out there for sub $40k that's parkable, fast, automatic, has a back seat, and is unique/cool/interesting? Used is fine.

The interesting part... is the most difficult, as is the back seat. Actually, M2 is close... to your price point and hits all those boxes. but it is less usable than a STI.

Yep. And yeah the M2 would be awesome. RWD only, I guess I'd be committing to summer and winter dedicated tire sets again :rolleyes:

How late did they make the epic NA engine C63, 2014? One of those would be :fuckyeah: for low mileage use where :whocares: about mpg.

I guess that's parkable if you enlist help from a tugboat.

Minus the head bolts that essentially disintegrate until the 2012 model year... so you're stuck with getting a 2012+ model which will continue to depreciate at a higher rate than a lease on a brand new MB.
I did the :math: on this before i got my M3.

I was shopping C63 AMGs, IS-Fs, and RC-Fs.

I wonder if you shouldn't just get a GX460 instead and put an exhaust on it. About the same footprint with a bulletproof V8 and you could go mudcamping with Zildor once a year too.

It wasn't THAT bad. At least it had unique body and interior. The interior was :mindblown: nice too.
It is unacceptable for a 75k +MSRP car to use the same powertrain as a 35k car, with 1/2 the utility.

Also what is so Great about this... it is :notbad: but other than the dash it is lifted straight from the ATS, which no one liked... thanks to those "touch buttons" on the center stack. Also the price point of the ATS is sub 50k...

Quality of materials was way nicer than the ATS. Dash was all a screen, not the 1980s gayges everyone hates. Doesn't matter now, and it was a nice car. Not worthy of the price, but still nice.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

A GLC makes more sense than a convertible off roader that will just be driven around with a porta potty roof bolted on and never go off road.

So that service is for oil change+ cabin and air filter... $1300 fucking dollars. These guys are nothing but epic crooks.

Gave my dad a coupon for $149 for 4 cyl oil change. The service CUNT ADVISOR LIED TO HIS FACE and told him it is 6 cylinder and CHARGED HIM $260. He is going back to get his $110 back...

:wtf: FUCK :dillerman: every single one... LYING CROOKS. Just sick and tired of this shit.

Oil change
Air filter
Cabin air filter
Spray down the MAF
Tire rotation
Looks like they're doing the BG fuel cleaner service which is just glorified seafoam
Plus some crisco on the broken sunroof and door latches

A handful of little things. Seems like a lot of money for that. I'd say maybe 450 would be fair if shop rate is $100/hr.

Obviously, no one is going to do that, but that is what happens when you walk in... as well as get lied to about not being to use a coupon.

$100/hr at an Audi store?

HA!

My Toyota dealership was $129/hr and here at Porsche we are $195/hr ($175/hr for classic vehicles). Hell, the Subaru dealership down the street is $170/hr.

Mercedes Benz of West Chester is $190/hr, Audi West Chester is $179/hr and the local FCA dealer is $135.
