that said, they're probably way more reliable and cheaper to fix than a bmw...
Lol no, I want the first gen. Megans is the second gen. I like the room, mpg, and looks better than an element.<br />Lol my wife has an XB and it has <b>WAY</b> more room inside. I actually like the looks of them as well. I would take an XB over another mk3 anyday.
So you want another XB so that you can have matching ones?<br />
Thats like me getting another mk4. Sure I could and I had suspension, wheels etc all lined up for one. But, no. I am done with mk4's.<br />
I personally like the Element better than the XB. I'd rather have a bottom of the line used Tig anyday.<br />
personally, if i'm going the "mini suv" route, i'd go with a cr-v, they're reliable as hell, awd, good mileage, and you can find them super cheap. they share a lot of mechanicals with civics & integras, so there's tons of parts available for them. i would love a tiguan, but they're hard to find use3d and spendy when you do. i've just never liked the xB's, and i've driven a few of them. the pic of one as a toaster is eerily accurate
and if you'll notice, i was the one looking for and posting pics of dope xB's too, so i'm really just giving you a hard time out of fun i wouldn't own one, but that doesn't mean i don't appreciate a nice looking one
I actually love XBs, but man, just keep the car. We all get into this "gotta get a family car" funk when we have a baby on the way. Also, I know your car is super clean, but seems like you're asking a bit high considering that M3s have fallen into that price range.
Don't worry about the RWD. My sister in law drove a 3 series all through college (in LOGAN) and never had issues. Just get some good snow tires and throw a bag of salt in the trunk and you'll never know the difference.
That said, do what you want. I can't keep a car longer than a couple months either.
I will most likely be keeping this a little longer though until the MK4 gets paint at least.
