      You need to quit cars and get another hobby. With the number of things that go wrong, it's a combination of you, the universe, and just plain old bad luck.

      Find something else, LOL.

      Congrats on the car. Hopefully you love it as much as your Cayman.


      I know its "pay to play", but my love of 911s wanes with their price a little bit every day. $120,000 after tax seems...

      Saw this in the flesh at the auto show here over the weekend. It does look pretty sharp. It also look pretty big, and the rear overhang is a bit long. I would still be very interested to drive one...

      Well, I got to check both of these out at the auto show here on the weekend. I have to say, in person, I much prefer the BMWs looks. The fender flares look great, the interior looks great (they...

      Will sell like hot cakes in my region. I already see swaths of IS250/350 F-sports here. Every 30 year old suburban mom who thinks she's "earned" the luxury life will lease one.

      Poll was initially very slanted towards the Corvette but has closed up some.

      I'll be very interested to drive both of these when I am looking for my next car in two years, though a portion of me...

      Even assuming both are new? I'd probably only own both of these cars for 4-5 years, under their warranty period. In which case, the BMW's maintenance is included in the price.
    8. Poll: The $65,000 question. C7 Corvette or BMW M3.

      So I know these aren't exactly the same category of car, but they're both performance cars to me. When spec'd the way I would buy either of them they are basically the same price. I built my 2LT Z51...

      The roads in Alberta are so bad because of our freeze/thaw cycle it has sucked so much of my car love out of me. I used to be a "No SUVs" kind of guy, but even driving my focus on 16" winters right...

      It really sucks that Canadians can't really take advantage of Euro delivery or the great leases on BMWs. If we had the rates American's do I'd for sure be driving a BMW.

      I still miss my Phoenix Yellow M3 sometimes. Everyone on the internet hates the colour, nearly everyone in person thought it was awesome.

      I still badly miss my E46 M3 some days.

      I would have no hesitation in buying another clean one given the opportunity. I never modified mine more than some good wheels and tires, but part of me...

      Meh, the world moves on. If we don't need to print things anymore, we won't print them.

      Same thing is true at work. Almost everyone I know under 30 tries to work completely paperless. We use...

      $90,000 base in Canada. Jesus Christ.

      I know a bunch of stuff that's an option on a Cayman S is included in that, but I struggle with Porsche's pricing despite my love of them. A C7 Vette spec'd...

      While I am still well below this threshold ($25,000 on $135,000) despite being a car enthusiast, I have to laugh at the people who come in flaunting their old as dirt cash purchases. The whole "HA HA...

      I'd totally love one of these things if I didn't find the interior of them to be so terrible.

      When I bought my E46 M3, people acted like I had spent a fortune on my car. I even had people say stupid things like "Bro! You drive an M3? Ballin!". It was a sub $20,000 10 year old car. Meanwhile...

      Ridiculous. They're making you even pay the GST on a private sale! That's almost criminal to me.

      You would literally have to more than double my salary for me to be willing to live in Toronto,...

      Does the Peoples Republic of Ontario make you pay sales tax on a private sale? Wouldn't that be a good way to dodge that? I know if I buy private I dodge all the taxes. If they do make you pay the...
