1 Bad don't be sorry, lol. Just changing with the times. At my job they installed employee charging stations. So I charge at home then at work. I'm averaging 200+ miles per gallon. Sweet baby Jesus I rarely get gas.

I get 11 mpg in my Raptor and wouldn't take a Volt if offered for free! Good luck though.

250+ I charge at home drive 32 miles to work put it on the charging station at work. Drive home on that charge. No gas used. So if I don't drive over 37 miles no gas used. So what don't you understand?

Nope mom & pops are dead & my condo cost $425,000. $ 200,000 down & financed 225,000. I can tell you are used to speaking with young boys or maybe you are a young man. When does a car prove to anyone that your not a geek? One thing I do know is someone can slap the **** out of you for being disrespectful, lol. So what other insults do you have for me. Smh

There is no need to be so rude and disrespectful whatsoever. He bought a Volt, you didn't. I'm sure he has the money to get into a 2008 750 if he wanted. He made a very smart decision.

I bought a Camry Hybrid recently. Does that make me poor?

Especially when my premium volt cost more than a 08 750, lol. I didn't trade my car in yet the dealer just offered me 10.

U dont have to explain anything to anybody. I dont really care about gas and how much stuff costs. As long as u love ur new car it all that matters. Its kinda cool but not my thing)) i like that new kia optima a lot looks pretty amazing to me. And ur volt isnt looking bad either dont know much bout electric/ hybrid cars but i bet there is room for improvement. One day we all are going to drive them. I hope u enjoy ur new car. Sad to see ur 7 go tho. I bet ur going to miss it))))

Credibility? Over representation? I just came to this sight for one reason & that was to share about my new car. Then you stated to be disrespectful.

You started to question my financial status as if your 05, 7 puts you in a certain superior class to look down on others. So I had to Shoot you off your high horse. A car doesn't define me as a person.
Next, you tried to speak to me as if I were a child with all the living with your momie BS. Once again another fail. Smh

BMW are cool but easy come easy go, off to the next ride.
Where are you from that your environment has you feeling like you are Hot S**t for driving a 750?

I really don't want to get involved but why do you care so much?

The fact is a new Chevy volt does cost more than an 08 750, I drive my 7 everyday and it gets 11.7 mpg in the city and you seem to be being taking this all so personally. I'm not a fan of the styling, but I am a fan of innovation and that car is cutting edge.

I also have a 2010 white Prius. It seems to collect dust however, I just don't drive it. Tough to chose that over the Porsche's and BMW's

But I love the option to save a ton on gas, and I'm not trying to show off by being a geek.(which I totally am secretly)

My point is why be such a dbag because someone traded there car in, and bought something different. I'm not a big fan of this board because the is always some salty dude behind his keyboard.

There always one guy trying to come sideways in every topic. I did a lot of research before purchasing this car & for a commuter living in the city I think I made the smartest choice. I am also getting a 73 mustang restored that only gets about 7 mpg, lol. So I can still have fun when I'm not working

Next project
