    Did anyone get a vehicle for Christmas?

    Re: What are the cars/bikes/cycles you drive?

    Earlier this year I traded my 2016 Subaru WRX for a 2017 Subaru Impreza Sport with a 5 speed manual transmission. The new Impreza chassis is spectacular. The Sport handles nearly as well as the WRX with a ride that's a bazillion X better. Seats are substantially more comfortable on the new car, and the interior finish is much nicer. I'm still not completely over losing 100+ hp, but I miss it less every day. Don't miss having to pay for premium fuel. If the Impreza has about 30 more horsepower, it would be damn near perfect. If only Subaru offered the 1.6L turbo 4 in the US that is available in the Japanese market.

    Hi Gary. It's nice to see comfort taking hold over HP. Our son was looking for a cheaper Subaru to use as a winter car, But even used they are not cheap in price.

    The 2019 Vettes are available to order now! They closed the factory for an upgrade in the paint area?
    I think there must be another reason to stop the 2018 run in mid year like this.
    Your thoughts?

    I've been lusting over Teslas for a while. My BMW (2010 535i M-Sport, 6 speed) is starting to become horribly unreliable. And as I do the maintenance and repairs, and can get parts wholesale, it is sometimes down for several days......or weeks, as I often find something else that needs to be addressed when I'm in there (usually requires taking off intake manifold on this car, ugh). It is getting to the point where the car needs a good $3000 repair more freuqnetly than once a year, and wiht how much driving I do, I'm probably putting in $250/month in fuel. So I'm looking at probably $7500 per year on this thing I could not pay with a Tesla. Then again, I'm not sure what all else would be likely to need to be replaced........though I have either a leaking rear main seal, or some turbos that need to be rebuilt given my oil consumption (I've replaced 2 other seals that were leaking).

    At any rate, 67Queen has been at a CME/Board review class all week. Right by a Tesla dealer. She pretty much told me to just order one last night. I really can't justify the cost. It'd be a 70D wiht a few options. I'd been looking at P85D's used, but she would prefer a new one. So who knows, I may be ending up with one.

    I was off on my fuel estimate. It is almost $400/month. I'm putting 2500 miles per month on it as of this school year. With my mileage, i'm spending $4200/year in fuel alone.

    Zero problems...so far. However, Iím a VW guy and know that Audiís and VWs give trouble.

    My wife just got a 2018 Atlas.
