Hey guys, site newbie here Been a long time follower, but never posted anything. Need some advice on my dilemma.
When i leased my MKVI GTI last July '10 i lived 10 miles from my job, so I figured 10k miles a year would be plenty. Well i went and got myself another job, just couldn't pass it up.. Now i'm driving about 500 miles a week. I am already over my miles on the lease, and am on track to be at least 30k over miles when I am due to turn i tin. It's not that i don't like the GTI, it's been the most reliable car i've ever owned.. so I'm on the fence.
So here is what I was thinking:
End the lease early and take a 5k bath right now and trade it in for something else.
Cars I'm looking at: AWD is a must
G37x coupe only because i get VPP through work.
Or saving up a bit and pick up a Range Rover Evoque.. Like the car but LR reliability is
Another option would just be to keep the GTI and mod the hell out of it with that 5k including some snow tires to cope with the surely impending Snowmageddon part 2
OR pick up a beater for the winter to save on the miles
