This is what I'm driving for the time being... My ...
That's the nicest hand me down I've ever seen. Like the black on black.
its a lot of black for sure, but i think it looks pretty good clean!

2009, 25,000 miles, woman driver (which means I assure you it has never slowed for potholes, railroad tracks or anything else for that matter) and it doesnt have a single squeak or creek. i took the original tires off the other day to put these on and they still had another 10,000 miles in them.
I have two complaints, but they are by design:
1. the base radio is not great, but can apparently be substantially upgraded by simply replacing the factory speakers.
2. it isnt fast. its HARD pulling out into traffic after going from a V to this... i bet ive nearly been rear-ended a half a dozen times.
regarding the SRT8, its on my list. It seems like I'll probably end up with one at some point in the near future... unless i can sell my wife on a GTR... "its all wheel drive AND and automatic!!!?"
this car has made me really consider an x5M. thats a dumb car by design, but if this car had 500hp, i cant help but think id never want another car. the x5 has never let me down and never had a problem. i've driven it in 20 inches of snow with street tires and through water that was up to the bumpers and it never missed a beat. i may have to drive a new turbo 8 and see how it runs.
I did the same thing with my wife's TB, I haven't gotten a V yet, but when I purchase in a few months I think that I'll keep it as a winter beater (Michigan weather). She drives a Yukon Denali Hybrid now, but I'll soon be able to outclass that!
