Ok so dont hate me 4 this

Well I've started to realize just about everything I have ever owned has been a performance sports car. Now I'm Not saying that I'm going to sell the stang but Lately I have been fixiated with wanting a luxury vehicle. Maybe a cute BMW or like an Infiniti g35 coupe. I'm the only one out of all my friends that trys to soop my cars up hahaha. Any suggests to any good nice cars? or MAYBE its just old age hitting me hahaha I'll be 23 the 30th

Re: Ok so dont hate me 4 this

I don't know if you can picture them as 'luxury' but I love my Buick regal GS

ultimate sleeper, its comfortable, all the bells and whistles, and it whistles (and whines) too.. factory supercharged, $300 in mods and it runs what my '02 GT ran in the 1/4 mile.. but its so civilized when you're not on the gas..





that was mine.. here's a white one I like..

Re: Ok so dont hate me 4 this

The G35's are pretty nice. I'd rather have one of them than a BMW. I don't think I could drive a "luxury" car though, even if it is sporty. To me, the '06 is like driving a freakin' Maybach or something... especially after driving a Fox for the past 6 years.

I miss my Fox... 4.6 my ***...

Re: Ok so dont hate me 4 this

if you want a coupe, go with a g35... if you don't mind a sporty 4 door sedan, check out an infiniti m35

they are sexy

I was going to say the same thing, the only think I don't like about the knew mustangs is how refined they are, and their probably just as practical as a G35 couple, or most BMW couples, except maybe for gas mileage.

Re: Ok so dont hate me 4 this

I wouldn't mind getting a luxury vehicle. Mustangs are great for performance, but suck as far as comfort goes.

I've thought about trying to make the stang more luxurious on the inside.

I would have to coat the underbody with sound deadener spray, fill all interior crevices with spray in foam, change out the seats to more "cupable" leather seats with heating AND cooling features, more leather accents, do some Piano black interior dying, stick a cool little analog clock in the dash.........dammit I'm describing a Fusion again. I want one of those
All that still wouldn't fix the ergonomic flaws though andall the nifty little rich playtoy gadgets.

Oh and a capuccino machine of course.

Re: Ok so dont hate me 4 this

Re: Ok so dont hate me 4 this

I went through this exact phase after I got the ticket in my GT... before I knew if it would stick or not. The only part of that phase that really stuck with me is wanting to sell the amp and sub. I'm completely out of it now. I'm assuming you'll get over your little phase too. I just couldn't part with the GT. Not until I upgrade anyway, or I'm forced to. If you wanna get a second car as more of a daily driver, that's do-able, if you have the budget for it. But, I think most of us on this site would miss the sports car... a lot.

Re: Ok so dont hate me 4 this

Don't do it, you can make the gt ride real comfortable too with the right suspension. And some good seats will make a world of difference.

It would be incredibly retarded to buy an Esclade when you are the only one driving it. Especially at 3 dollars a gallon

I swear on somebody-I-don't-know's grave that I'll never drive a SUV. I hate the things. Even if I have 6 kids or something. That's what trunks are made for.

Re: Ok so dont hate me 4 this

I swear an oath on bbunt's future grave that I will never own a minivan. I would rather own a SUV, but woulld rather not.

All that is what the Fusion will be for.

I never said I was selling mine. Just throwing it on the back burner. Hopefully my kids will own it someday. As much money I have put into that thing.... I know I'll never see any of it if I sell it.

Re: Ok so dont hate me 4 this

I'm 23... and I'm not about ready for a luxury car. My car is too luxurious as it is.

I also won't be driving a van any time soon. What it basically comes down to is this: I'm not having any more kids than I can fit into a Mustang. Whether I have to stuff them in the trunk/glove compartment/etc isn't really important. If they fit , then fine. I'm thinkin' 7.
