Seems like the basic 991's are solid from day one. 2012 was only a half model year so apparently those have slightly more quirks (small stuff fun what I understand), but being that 2013's were the...

The C7 will be like the Camaro. Hot in the beginning then the overstated, hard and angular "cartoony" looks will make it hard to look at after awhile. It's like eating too much junk food.

Good point about personality. The Vette is cool but I can see that design getting old on you, very fast. Lots of hard edges and plastic-y appearing panels, etc. Panel alignment also is known to be...

I think they hit a home run as well. But to me M3's were always supposed to be mid $60's cars, equipped with basic essentials. I.e the price of a loaded 535i/E/A6 segment. Maybe they've never been...

Yeah it's very old-man-ish this time around, the whole design and ambiance. I think that's fitting for MB, though not something I'd want in my garage or to drive. However the Sport package looks like...

I wish the new M3 was going for what E90 MSRP for. It's really taken up a whole new leg in priciness as you basically have to get it in the $70's to get what I consider essentials.

Is 40% depreciation on a rather high priced example of an E9x M3, after 3 years considered bad resale? If you think about it, the buyer basically bought himself a "3 year lease" and at the end of it...

Nothing has worse deprecation than a Corvette. The Stingray should hold up better, but that's probably been said about all Vette's before it as well.

It seems E90/E92 M3's have held up really well...

Yeah I saw some tall guys on the C7 forum state that they can "fit but it's tight". I think that can be a dangerous move as when I sat in it, I could almost "fit" (really snug vertical space) but...

Thanks. 3% isn't a great return, but I guess you can consider saving that 3% (by going with a shorter loan) basically like a guaranteed 3% return on the loan amount (whether that's smart or not...

Wow, I gotta start looking into that. Porsche dealers all quoted me 2.99% or something like that (as best attainable). Maybe I'd have to find my own loan and not go through dealers.

Yeah, I prefer...

For me, it's hard to be proud. There's no reason that we should be babysitting American car companies to finally start eking closer to "catching up".

I believe that if you totaled the car, you'd be out that total amount. If so, then it's a very bad idea, but you do save a lot on interest and/or taxes.

That's funny. My favorite angle of the M Sport package element of the F10 is the rear. IMO it's the M Sport front that could've been more aggressive (i.e like the 6 or 3 M Sports, they're a little...
