Re: $20,000 to spend on a second car. What do you buy?

Standard WRX. Not STI.

Well, perhaps he lied to me then. Not sure why we would though.
Remember, I said he had it tuned. He mentioned his mpg increased after that.

Re: $20,000 to spend on a second car. What do you buy?

Met a guy today at a client that had a tuned 2018 WRX. It was sweet and he had good things to say about the car's all around performance. Gets 34mpg on highway trips cruising at 70 and said it was superb in the awful New England winter we had and is a ton of fun on dry roads. The white color was a b...

Re: $20,000 to spend on a second car. What do you buy?

We already have an SUV for the family that gets 23mpg. I do need this car to get good gas mileage and another SUV is not practical for us. I should have included that in my criteria. I like the WRX but not sure I can pull it off for business. Unless I got the more "sedany" Limited version. The Civi...

Re: $20,000 to spend on a second car. What do you buy?

As much as I would love a standard, I do drive a decent amount (25-30K) so it wouldn't be as practical as an automatic . Gas mileage is important but I would sacrifice some of the need for the fun part. ;) Well that's true if you spend time in traffic. My daily commute is 76 miles round trip, but I...

Re: $20,000 to spend on a second car. What do you buy?

Like the looks of the new Accord but won't be able to find one at $20K. Civic Si could be an option. I negotiated a brand new Si down to 21k. I decided I couldn’t have a car with a manual as my second car as my wife can’t drive it. That would have been a fun commuter. I might be in a similar spot. ...

Re: $20,000 to spend on a second car. What do you buy?

I recently got a loaded 2014 Edge Sport for $24k. If you didn’t mind going a couple years older for an SEL model I’m sure that’s doable. Not sure how heavily it classifies as fun to drive, but it’s a 3.7L 305hp V6 with a 6 speed auto with paddle shifters, AWD and a sub 6 second 0-60. I still enjoy ...

Re: $20,000 to spend on a second car. What do you buy?

I still really want a WRX .... because I couldn't afford one when I was in college. But as a family we also enjoy going to camp and secluded beaches... so a Tacoma or 4runner are also contenders for me (wife's SUV is not 4x4). Me too. :mrgreen: Don't think I could get away with it for business thou...

Re: $20,000 to spend on a second car. What do you buy?

I just bought a 2017 Hyundai Sonata Sport with 1063 miles for $20,500 at Carmax. Not very exciting, but good looking, comfortable, and gets decent mileage. Good choice. :thumbsup: I am exploring 2014/15 3 series xDrives. A little concerned about the fixes but if I can find a 335 it'll be fun to dri...

Re: Bremont's New 2018 Models

The Supermarine Vintage is just lovely. But I always find myself feeling their watches are just a tad overpriced and that stops me from pulling the trigger on one.

Why did you flip each one? Your answer might be somewhere there?

Because flipping was in my DNA at that point in my life. I have since changed. Maybe. Well... probably not. We'll see.
