      This was in the news the other day, and I instantly thought of this thread. :laugh:

      I wouldn't have bought an automatic GTO even if it came with a 12 speed auto. I didn't make the choice because the auto was bad, I made the choice because I wanted to change my own gears. I'm really...

      Lap times aside, those both look like a hell of a lot of fun! I'd take either one with a huge smile on my face. :thumbup:

      Sounds more like experience to me. The two (age and experience) aren't always exclusive to each other, but it happens that way more often than not. :beer:

      But sometimes we all have to make our own...

      Typical failure mode for the hydraulic system isn't for the pedal to just stay on the floor though. I'd suspect the pressure plate broke, or the throwout bearing is stuck, or something else in that...

      I would probably go with the GT-R. I love the looks of the 911, and the way it drives, but like you I share the fear of owning one out of warranty.

      I would also consider holding out for a C7 Z06....

      It's a 30 year old vehicle. Things will go wrong. The 22-R in my RV is one of the most reliable engines in the world, but at this age they still develop problems.

      Look, I'm not against people...

      Ok, but you want to go home for the holidays, and the alternator is dead.

      You can go buy a set of tools, try and find an alternator, and then change it in freezing temperatures in the parking lot...

      Exactly!

      There are so many better choices for this situation that would accomplish everything except the "cool factor".

      I tend to find Avis is more willing to do one-ways than some of the other major rental companies, so you might want to give them a shot.

      I drive one because I need to cargo space for work, and occasionally need to drive into bad weather. My parents live in the mountains, and having only a 2wd car would sometimes mean missing holidays...

      They really hold their value well, especially with the I6 and manual. The high used values always make me reconsider buying one.

      I'll say it again as a BMW owner. It's a set of wheels and a couple of stickers. Give it a rest troll.

      I wouldn't go much more than $3k for it. You're going to spend some money making it right, and much more than that puts you in 4Runner territory, which is just better all around. Not that I don't...

      That's what I'm thinking, but at some point the pistons are going to run out of travel (or maybe even pop out) and then there's trouble. They're lucky they're catching this early on before the pads...

      Given that knowledge, the solution is at hand! Don't drive it like a damned Miata! :laugh:

      Thanks. The Rubicon is extremely cool, but I wouldn't need anything quite that serious. The Sport sounds about perfect. I normally use the 4Runner as my daily driver, and the BMW pulls road trip...
