    My friend bought a Genesis coupe instead of the BRZ because of the dollar/HP. Plus he didn't like the interior.

    The FRS and BRZ still look great, and I don't mind their interiors. Elantra/Genesis handling leaves much to be desired. I'm waiting for the new Supra. :D

    Ice, try driving a stick in LA, lol. Yah, it can be a pain sometimes, but living in LA, you learn to avoid the road during bad traffic times. Also, it becomes second nature to you. When driving autos, I find myself stepping on that non-existent clutch quite often, lol.

    I'm actually thinking about a Highlander... something nice and roomy for snowboarding.

    Yeah. Subaru AWD and turbocharged engine. The best value in its class. I've been waiting for a coupe and design I like. I prefer MaualTransmission cars myself, but for practicality, I have an auto DD. I drive my MT's off rush hours.

    Yah, I'm thinking about a DD... My cousin has this wrecked TL in my driveway that I might fix for a DD (need to find someone to fix it for cheap, but shop i used to go to closed down/retired). But I only work 6mi away, lol, and no traffic either direction, so I havent had any real need for one yet.

    There should be handling/suspension kits for the Gen' by now to make it handle like a track car.
    I predict the Supra will be very expensive because it will be in the same class as the GT-R.
    I could be wrong though because Lexus already has a supercar.
    Yeah, driving a MT car in traffic daily gets old fast from the work out for your left leg and right hand.
    Gives you fatigue too.
    SUV is great! I have an '08 Pathfinder for trips and for work.

    Oh funny story about expensive cars. I was driving back from work on Thursday at 7pm, heavy traffic. I finish crossing the Bay Bridge into San Francisco and the first on-ramp onto 80/101 was to my far right. I hear this Lambo screeching up the on-ramp trying to get on this packed highway. The guy/gal was trying to pass as many cars ahead in the exit/entry lane to get ahead, and then get stuck behind and between four trucks. I pass by the guy/gal who had tinted side windows on the lease/rental, and I ID it as the Aventador with the matte black finish.

    Needless to say I passed it in my shitty Civic all the way home. So, @Col. Gaspar , let us have the last laugh. They can have the nice cars (for now).

    Car insurance rates are a rip off, all insurance companies need to lower their rates!
