I just had another one -- and I anticipate paying for their college. So I have a good 22+ years of shelling out $40-50k+ per year on nannies, preschool, college tuition, etc.
So basically I will...
Even a base MK7 Golf R (which are no longer sold by VW in the US) was ~$36k.
Fiesta ST's sell for ~$21k all day long.
So the price difference is even greater.
So I made partner at my firm this year . . . and my wife just had another baby.
Threads like this always make me question my idea to spend a bazillion dollars per year on offspring . . .
I don't ever want to hear from this idiot ever again.
Post has been reported as blasphemy.
So I've driven an AP1 and an AP2, but never back to back. Are the transmissions/clutches the same? Or was there change in the drivetrain with the advent of the 2.2L engine?
Both felt great to...
It depends on how you define "best."
The transmission in my 135i M-sport had the classic BMW "butter churn" feel to it, it was soooo smooth to shift, and I never missed a gear. The clutch was...
I actually like the interior -- and I usually am sort of Euro-snob dash stroker. Even though the SS interior just screams "LOOK AT ME, I'M AN AMERICAN CAR WITH LOTS OF ANGLES AND SHAPES AND DOODADS...

There are many desireable bland cars. The SS is more than bland.
I like the SS, but I absolutely cannot stand the way it looks. I have tried to change my own mind on it. I've seen them with Holden badges and body kits, etc. The car just looks like a frumpy...
Yeah, I know. I will try to get some this weekend.
I would consider a RWD car. I've owned a few RWD cars (135i M-Sport, Lotus Elise, Bent M), etc.
Although I do kind of like the lazy simplicity of AWD for a daily driver. Just take the corner,...
I honestly don't know yet.
Likely a Subaru STI or used Audi S4 (B8).
Actually it works fine with my son. He loves riding in it!
I have a second kid coming in March. I would like to sell the TTS around that time. If any of you are at all interested, my link is here: ...
I am in the preliminary stages of deciding to sell my current car. As of now, the price is firm, and I am in no rush to sell. But feel free to drop me a PM if you want to discuss...
I'm not talking about corner carving here. I'm talking about going 0-85mph on an on-ramp. I'm talking about changing lanes on the highway and accelerating from 55mph-95mph.
No doubt there's...
