Possibly one of these:
Or maybe your current car, Igor.
No games or gimmicks, unlimited budgets or any of that nonsense.
Assuming you're going to get something in the next year, what are you getting?
If all works out well, then I will hopefully be a the proud owner of a CPO 987.2 Cayman S.
I'm not planning on getting a car in the next year, but let's say my car was totaled or had some kind of massive mechanical failure, necessitating a new vehicle.
I would get a 2010+ 3 hatchback (Skyactiv, preferably)
I would promptly get a set of side sills off an "s" model for it.
Or I would get an Outback.
Or a new Escape or Fusion if I can afford to go brand new.

I've been researching/keeping an eye out for a Porsche 930 for the past year and a half. Realistically, when my wife's car is paid off in four years, that's what I'm buying.
SGT Joshua L. Morley, SPC Tracy C. Willis - 26 AUG 07 - It was an honor to serve with both of you.
MK7 Golf R (if it comes out next year)

FS: (1) VMR 718 19x8.5 Wheel - $100 shipped
As much as I would like it to be a 987.2 Cayman, I don't think I will be able to justify the expense.
The new Accord seems really appealing right now as a practical daily. I could see myself leasing one of those for a couple of years when the warranty is up on my GTI.
I want a Jag or a LR. I need to do it before I turn 40, so I can start sprouting gray hairs without looking out of place.
"What's that loud, boring sound you'll hear when I stop talking?"
"It's an albino humping worm!"
"Why do they call it that?"
"Because it doesn't have any pigment."
There's a lot of things on my 'list', but if I replaced my car this year (not actually planning to quite yet, only for the eventuality) it would be most likely
a Mazda CX-5, diesel if the diesel is out. That's the most realistic of the list, though others aren't far behind:
Audi Q5 2.0t or TDI
Porsche Cayenne (used)
There are a number of cars around here I might want to buy.
-Montego GT/another gran torino
-mk7 GTI 4 door
-Opel adam if it comes to the US
-Smart forjeremy (flamesuit on)

My lease is up on my 335 in sept. of this year, I think i am going to get myself back into a wrangler. I had one before my bmw and it wasent how I wanted it (soft top, half doors, manual trans. ), i bought it without seeing, big fail on my part.
so I am doing it right this time and ordering it how I want it with a painted hard-top, full doors, auto. (no need for two manual trans. vehicles) and in a 4 door unlimited.
Something like this: color undecided, since jeep likes to change them up every 6 months
I LOVE my BMW so much, but I am at a point in my life where I need to get something with a cheaper car-payment so I can get going with life.
I also saw some leases on 2012 6-6 Accord Coupes that have me thinking of calling my CU to figure out my GTI payoff.
Just need to get this damn condo situation taken care of first!
135i vert = $469/mo. That's what I pay on my Civic's 5-year loan, for a car that's about 2x as expensive.
128i Coupe = $329/mo
135i Coupe = $389/mo
$3K+ due at signing though. One would want to negotiate a bit, I imagine. And these are for specific models (Premium Package but no Tech or Sport)...and you can't lease a 135is, looks like...
But for a 3rd car, which is what it will be for me, those things don't matter. 3rd pedal? I'll take my Civic. Nav? Both of my other cars have it.
I realized that I probably won't be buying a car for the next 5 years. I'm in college now and would have no where to store a second car. Even after I graduate I'll probably move to a NYC where I wouldn't need /be able to have a car.
Plus side is that I'll be able to save up for something much nicer in the distant future.
03 Jetta GLS
Something that I can have an infant carrier and a toddler seat in comfortably without having to move either seat all the way up. Which reminds me, fcuk you, guy who designed the MKIV Jetta backseat!

Two completely different cars. I know it shouldn't even be a decision seeing how one is way more reliable and fun than the other but I'm just crazy like that.
