      Hahaha, true. Most will just think its a POS Passat (surprise! it is).


      Whatever. Its their car. They can do what they want. Its just a mass produced car anyway.

      Back to the original topic...

      I tend to think this every time I see someone in a BMW.....usually driving about 45 in the left lane....

      The only 7th generation Celica GT-S I ever see is piloted by a blue-haired old woman who drives it like the 1997 Buick she should've bought.

      and occationally i see an older gent in an immaculate white E39 M5 driving 55 on the highway.

      Yea, on the original topic I really do hate it because I just look at them and know they threw money at a "car" a means of transportation that they think everyone else will like. The worst is I see more old ladies in the new Mustangs than guys
      Also, there's a business I pass on my way to work and some days there is an 07 Saleen and a 12 Shelby GT500 at the same time, and other days I see an NSX on RPF1s, but I"m pretty sure they appreciate their cars because they drive them a lot.

      What it boils down to is: So ****ing what? Why do you care so much what other people are driving when you simply assume that you "know they threw money at a car"?

      Nothing personal against the owners, themselves, but I lack respect for people who drive great cars and don't take care of them. I've had girlfriends whose parents bought them brand new cars, and never wash them, clean the interiors, or change the oil...don't want to put Premium fuel in them because it is 20 cents more, etc.

      Have plenty of friends who have gotten brand new cars, trucks, etc. and trash them out in an effort to make it look like, "meh, it IS expensive, but that ain't no thing" "just a car; no biggy".

      I suppose that's their prerogative...but that isn't how I was raised...with regards to cars. Keep it clean, wash, polish, wax, rotate tires, change the oil, and so forth.
      The carpet pissers did this?!

      TCL: Where a comfortable, decent driving, engineering first (in mass production iirc), solid car (albeit bloated and fiddly) is junk, but stanced out b-tchbasket torqueless convertibles are hot shizz.

      I rolled up to an older Boxster not too long ago and we both knew it was on. And I hate revving my car.

      Rolled up on a W8 Passat today, and while not an awesome car...still unique and different...


      Woman...on her phone...inside looked like it had trash and stuff everywhere. Probably doesn't even know what a V8 is...much less a W8.
      What does a person look like that does not appreciate what car thy have, just curious and who are you to judge what is "pretty cool". I'm sure there is some guy sitting at a bus stop looking at some guy in a beat to crap Pontiac Aztec thinking, boy that guy sure is lucky to have a car.

      Why? It usually means they have more important things to do in life than become OCD with their transportation device, yet still displayed a modicum of good taste when selecting it. It also probably means they have the financial resources to not have had to have spent 75% of their income on their ride, and therefore feel the need to treat it as the only thing that matters.

      That being said I'm not onboard with general dirtiness, because that trait probably permeates their whole life.

      There's plenty of people around here that grind my gears (Portland, OR)
      A guy with a mk5 R32 on some glossy black Les Schwab wheels with his smash mouth hair cut always blasting some emo screamo crap and going WOT at every stop light/sign in town.

      Another is a woman with a newer blue V70R who I've seen hit curbs around corners, and docks it like a boat onto curbs when pulling into parking spaces. Wheels and bumper are trashed.

      And to top it off, I had a friend who picked up a 2006(?) Mercedes C class a couple years ago. When I had asked him how often checked his oil, he replied with "i just wait for the light to come on".

      Well, there is a difference between someone who is OCD and treats their "transportation device" as a priceless piece of art, while neglecting other important things in their life and someone who simply takes general care of his/her nice vehicle. I'm a busy person, and can still find time to wash and clean my car myself, but also realize it is just a car and meant to be driven, thus likely to sustain some wear and tear over time.

      There's also a difference between someone who maybe doesn't keep his/her vehicle very clean for whatever reason and someone who basically neglects every aspect of vehicle maintenance. I've certainly known many of the latter, who were also fortunate enough to have really nice cars basically handed to them. One example is a friend who was given a really nice 65' Mustang as his first car. He not only didn't take care of it, but didn't realize you're supposed to change the oil. Another friend was given a fully loaded Jetta 1.8T. Sure, that's nothing awesome like a W8 Passat, or something, but it was a nice car, which at the time I would have taken in a heartbeat. She ragged it out, soon had a makeshift closet/dirty clothes hamper in the back seat, and refused to use anything other than regular octane fuel, even though I'm sure her parents helped her pay for gas, too.

      My first car was a 92' Camry with 70K miles on the clock. I took good care of it, and felt fortunate to have such a "nice" car at 16. Obviously, I had many friends with MUCH nicer cars at the time, but I was never really envious of them. However, it was really annoying to see some of those friends with such nice cars not taking at least basic care of them.
