Bad idea.
Hope you're not being serious.
You can fake a migraine, but not asthma.

Update: Just saw Brit being hauled away in a squad car for faking asthma and trying to get an inhaler for her man. I heard her yell at the cop that she had a migraine and to give her an Excedrin.

Update: Do you think Financing an ///M3 and only driving it on the weekends and keeping it for 5-8 years would be worth it financially? I am never going to be driving during the week anymore and this is REALLY frustrating me. Do SUPER low mileage M3's keep their value? Or is it worth looking into a Pcar?

If you're not going to drive much then save yourself a bunch of money and buy a high mileage car. Less money just sitting in the garage not going anywhere.

Thing is, just leased my wifes G37x. My car is up 1/12/12 but would like to do my research and due diligence over the next year to get it Sept/october next year.

High mileage car? My wifes G37x is the 'Station car' since mine doesn't have an alarm (thanks BMW). I'm not getting a beater to go to the station. I guess my 'needs' for a car have changed with this new job.

Update: Missing my 335i

By high mileage car I was referring to a higher mileage M3 or Porsche. If you aren't driving it that much then buying a new or low is just too big a waste. Wait until you retire at 37 to go low mileage so you can rack up the miles.

Good idea. I'll have to start looking.

Update: the woman behind me needs to get a mouse with higher DPI or something, I'm sick of hearing her pick up the mouse and slamming it down to move it!

Logitech wireless wave combo FTMFW!

I don't see how ppl use non-trackball mice. All of that sliding the mouse around is f'n obnoxious. Here is the mouse I have and I love it!!!



Update: I feel a headache starting

Track ball is so last century woman. Get with the times! I hope you dont have a Megan Fox thumb trying to move that dumb ball. Gotta get a laser mouse with a high DPI and be able to control it. I can span 2 monitors with less than an inch of movement of my wrist. Just saying.

Update: Moneys burning a hole in my pocket. Got...to...stop...looking...at...cars.

Whatevs ... I detest optical mice as you still need to lift and lower it for it to center and you still need to move the thing up down left right and of course the old school mouse with the ball on the bottom *ugh* I will keep my trackball thank you very much

Update: Very tired today
