      This is an intervention.

      TCL has suffered enough. Some of the SoCal TCL'ers actually wasted many hours helping him track down and sometimes test drive cars with Vad. So for reference, these are the cars Vad is definitely NOT interested in buying, despite what he tells you otherwise. Do not feed Vad's addiction. Ignore his painful plea for more leads of high mileage used car of questionable history and spotty records.

      Like how 90% of TCL says they'll buy that car when it's relesed then don't end up buying it?

      no, not really. Like someone who posts a specific and attainable car but never delivers. Again, I like VadGTI but my god he needs to just buy one of these damn cars, otherwise just call them CLFOTD which is what they really seem to be.

      That's not going to stop him from posting. It's a viscous cycle. He bought the e30 M3 nigerian edition only about a year ago.

      why did he buy that e30 m3 he never drives it, and doesn't his mom's house hold a ton of his cars?

      he needs to clean his windshield too.

      I like it. He thinks out loud and promotes discussion. There's not a thing wrong with that. You wouldn't understand this because you're a part of the grumpy smurf brigade that hates everything fun and spends most of their time either trolling or posting negative things.

      I like to talk things through with people who like to talk about cars. There couldn't be a more perfect place for this kind of discussion, among the many others. If you're not interested in the content, feel free to avoid them, or block him altogether. I've blocked Saintor and a couple others recently, and that's made my experience that much better.

      contrary to popular belief, he does occasionally drive the E30
      seen here at the Socal GTG/GMR cruise

      and I believe the S60R is his only other vehicle. Obviously 2 is not enough for one person as we here in TCL should understand. He merely lives out that desire in a more public way, hence all the posts.

      He posts CLFOTD threads all the time that he clearly has no intention of buying.

      These threads I highlighted are all the one that he seriously considered purchasing. He exchanged email or calls with the seller and test drove most of these cars.

      I sent Jerry_HEAVEN to look at it. It had weird tree sap on the hood and roof. In retrospect, that was a stupid car to not buy.

I must say I felt a twinge of guilt knowing you were getting for your girlfriend. These are not easy cars to own.

      You obviously don't have the VadGTI extension enabled on your browser. It automatically adds 'CLFOTD' to all his thread titles.

      Everything I posted in the OP happened in the last 10 months. Don't make us go back further because that will just make committing you to rehab facility that much easier.

      I like to talk things through with people who like to talk about cars. There couldn't be a more perfect place for this kind of discussion, among the many others. If you're not interested in the content, feel free to avoid them, or block him altogether. I've blocked Saintor and a couple others recently, and that's made my experience that much better.

      So did you miss the first line of my statement that you quoted or what? I don't think there's anything wrong with his threads.
