    I have a daily driver 1988 Civic Station Wagon that I drive back and forth to my clients, and then I have my "Baby": a 1990 Honda CR-X SiR that I imported to Canada from Japan. She is right-hand-drive, with a 160HP 1.6L engine -- nothing fancy, but enough to be fun without getting me into too much trouble hehe. I am in the process of restoring her.

    My fiance just picked up a 2000 CR-V. Her 1999 was totalled in August when some guy rear ended her so hard it made a "CRV Sandwich". Luckily everyone was ok. And she also has an '82 Toyota pickup that has been in her family since new (only has about 90,000km's on it too!)

    Well, figured its time to liven this thread up a bit.

    Story behind that in the quote above.

    Currently driving a 2002 Honda Civic LX. Gets pretty good gas mileage (I've gotten anywhere from 31.5 to 37.5 mpg on a tank). My only complaints are it doesn't look real good, I mean it looks great for a Civic LX (its in perfect condition), but its an LX...

    Also, ravi2sunny, I don't think your reply was meant to be a kick in the chops, which is why I didn't respond to it. Hopefully I'm correct.

    I had a 99 Civic Si, was probably the funnest car I ever owned. Bought it with 11k miles and sold it with over 170k miles, never really had any problems other than replacing the clutch. Got rid of it 2 years ago because children and still miss it very much. Kids seats wouldn't fit :)

    Since then I bought a 2001 C240 Benz which I still have and a 2004 Toyota Tacoma pickup which I still have

    well...i unfortunately don't have my own car, but i do at least get to drive something occasionally.

    blue chevrolet cavalier...2003 i think?...somewhere around there. it's zippier than it sounds...but it's nothing compared to a corvette...i'm a die-hard vette fan. and if i ever get the money, its the first car i'm buying.

    1999 VW Golf Wolfsberg - Red w sunroof - Automatic .... Upgraded the tires ... fun drive for a non-stick person like myself.

    2007 Pontiac Wave - Company car - its a nice kite on the 400 highway >.< - comfort designed by DeSadd I beleive, as much guts as an earthworm and the only thing automatic is the transmission and even that is questionable =/

    I almost got one of those Mildew, but after my unfortunate incident with my truck (see earlier posts) I needed to buy something pretty quick, so I didn't have time to do too much shopping around. Plus I live about 2 hours away from anyplace that has anyone that wants to sell.

    I would have been looking for a 2002 or newer Jetta TDI.

    I did, up to last week drive a Ford Mondeo 2 litre diesel estate but look what I did to it.

    In case your wondering how it happened

    I misjudged the gap between a car parked on the left of the road and on coming traffic, i came to a stop with the car angled right to the white line, then some goon in a mini transit ran into the side of me.

    No whiplash just a whopping big bruise on the forehead...all who saw it said I was lucky to walk away from it.

    Mind you ive had 6 years of driving company cars without a crash (yep it was a company car so its not my loss).

    Only drawback is they have hired me a dam Vauxhall Vectra....

    regards

Saving up for a Semi New '01 Impreza.

    Nice stuff, although if I were you I would get a 335i that offers a softer ride than the more expensive and powerful M3.

    Sure with the M3 you get to brag a whole lot more but from my personal experience with my sedan 330i which I bought almost immediately after those went on sale in 2005, the flat-run tires really stink in general if you want a smoother ride in all kind of pavement, even more so after the first 5,000 miles.

    I will be selling my BMW soon, overall it's been a great car but moving to South America on a permanent basis I may be better off buying an SUV.

    Going from an is300 (recently sold mine for a g35 coupe), i' m guessing he is going for power more then anything. The IS is a very smooth, powerful car, very similar to that of the 335i. The M3 (e46 i' m guessing) is defiantly a more race tuned car, everything from the beastly engine, to the tight tuned suspension. I would take the 335i over the m3, but only because of the 335's beautiful appearance. I do have to say it is one of the most beautiful BMW's ever produced.
