It looks like you took care of it.
Thank you. It's babied. Driven mainly in nice weather even though we have a hardtop for it. Not a daily driver. Beginning to look at Porsche to add to fleet or replace this one. And yes that is a radar detector in the windshield.

A radar detector was the first thing I bought when I got my first car. I'm thinking about getting one of the Escort MAX CI 360 when I get my next car so I can use it in Virginia.
I always check out Bell. They're owned by Escort and many times have the same or similar features for significantly less $

I wasn't aware of that, thanks for the tip!
Had a red 1999 a couple of years ago, super fun car. Wish I would have kept it. Not a big fan of convertibles as the weather here is very hot... been thinking about a Subaru BRZ / Toyota 86 / Scion FR-S as a fun, weekend car.

In regards to radars, get a Valentine 1 and you'll be set for years to come.

Beware of Virginia laws. I thought they were illegal in VA.

They are, but the Escort MAX CI 360 is hardwired into the car and not mounted to the windshield. Since it can’t be seen, I’d guess it’d be safe to use in Virginia. Unless I’m missing something which is possible.

The law stated "Legality of Radar Detectors in Virginia. It is illegal in Virginia to operate a vehicle that is equipped with any type of device, passive or active, used to detect any mechanism employed by police officers to measure the speed of vehicles for law enforcement purposes."

Exactly. Virginia state troopers have had VG2 since at least the mid 90s when I lived there, and could catch it if powered on.

Is VG2 a way to detect radar detectors? If so I didn’t know there was such a thing, and I’ll be sure to take down my current radar detector when I’m in Virginia.

Virginia is crazy. If memory serves me correctly, the highest speed limit is 70 and going 80 or above is an automatic wreckless driving charge.

It still is reckless driving, and they have signs at the state line saying that. I hate driving through Virginia.

The watch budget got spent last week. But so worth it. Now just have to be patient through the 1200 mile break-in period.

Thanks all! 2018 M3. Went in to look at the M4 (again) and they finally had an M3 available. Both white. For me it was an easy decision with 2 kids. The backseat area is slightly bigger, has windows they can roll down, and has a middle seat. The M4 will only fit two (no middle seat belt). I also liked the driving position on the M3 better.

It has the cloth and leather seats which at first was a no go. Love the "sports cloth" now - sales manager said more people are ordering them this way. Wife liked it better as well.

All in all, I grin every time I start it up. Can't wait until I can really let her rip. I don't name cars but my 11 year old son said I should name it after a teenage celebrity crush. So, she's Elle. :)

I forgot that the M3 is now a four door and the M4 is the two door. The sport cloth seats are nice from what I hear.

I have a deposit down to have right of first refusal on the new accord. Waiting for my dealership to start getting them in now that they're in production and waiting impatiently.

I've only driven Accords since HS. Owned a 2002 and have leased a 2010, 2013, and currently a 2015 with the lease being up next year

Sadly, the '15 might be my last.

With the elimination of the V6 I just can't get on board with the Accord. Also, the new body lines with the sloping rear are reminiscent of the new Civic body which IMO is too close to a hatch back.

I'm hoping it looks better in person but even still, just not a fan of the 4 banger - turbo or not

You can thank CAFE for that. I'm getting sick of bureaucrats dictating automobile design. They'll keep raising the bar 'til it's all but impossible to design a car with an ICE that will pass muster.
