Since this is a car forum and all...Ö

I've had my 2014 Lexus IS250 AWD for like 4 years now...had an issue with battery drain when (I got it used...bought someone else's problem) but fixed that via warranty with a change of the ECU.

Wished I paid the extra coin for the 350.

a 2017 Acura RDX for baby hauling. Fast enough....highway fuel economy isn't bad. The car looks great from the inside. \:D

Pretty happy with the RDX, it has rear seat warmers for the wife so she doesn't feel like a 2nd class citizen in the back.

2007 911 GT3 - wish it had rear seats. My kid spends more time in it then my wife.

2016 X3 diesel - itís ok for what it is I guess. Hate hate CUVís. this will most likely be the first and last for me. Just hate everything about it performance wise. This is my work/family car.

2014 Volt - wifeís car, sheís still super happy with it, but I think for her next car she should get something fun to drive like a 718 :p. The Volt has over 80,000kms now and lifetime fuel consumption is 0.63L/100kms

My X3 was bought used couple years back and came with limo tints. Great for sunny days but I canít see shit in residential streets lol

It's pretty good by my standards, not sure how it translates to diesel in general. Since most of my driving is highway i've done a few tests:

1. 90km/h-100km/h steady in the right lane I can get into the 5.x L/100km no issues. In the 100-115km/h range it's about 6.5L/100km.

Those are pretty low and hard to do speeds though, average highway driving (with flow of traffic) is 130-150 (407) and I average 7.5L/100.

Driving mostly city the worst i got was about 9L/100km.

Apparently can get even better with more power, but then I'd void the warranty so for now it will stay as is.

Thatís decent for a 6 cylinder. About the same numbers I was getting with the 335d.

You seem pretty happy with it. I bet itís nice and quiet on the highway.

2007 Santa Fe. It's done well as a family hauler and is holding up decently for its age. Will eventually trade it in for an MDX or similar sized 7 seater.

2015 Genesis Coupe Rspec. Fun to drive but had to bring it in for many warranty issues. Don't see it holding up well in the long term. Will replace with a decent sized sedan in the future.

do you even keep a car long enough to worry about it holding up?

whatís in the garage / driveway? see sig.

S - still have it. didnít touch it at all in 2017. glad i revived it last year and did 1 track day with it. my boy loves cruising in it.

X3 - still going strong after 7 years (126k km now) ó only broke down on me once (throttle position sensor fux0ríd ó replaced gas pedal assembly. just did a major service before winter. hope it will last another 4-5 years ó officially my winter beater

X1 - was a relatively last minute replacement for the 5 (cuz someone wasnít selling their car at the time ó see below) ó became wifeís car - pretty zippy being a xdrive35; suspension is quite good even when pushing it a bit on ramps.

M - Hator was dumping it at the wrong time (after we got the X1) ó couldnít let it go to waste so this became my summer daily (what other car can i track and still haul 2 kids around?). love the sound and power though i have to say the novelty is wearing off. this thing is so dog ass heavy at the track and there isnít much road feel to it. but canít figure what iíd replace it with.

'09 128i. Makes a nice daily with the sport and premium packages. Kinda wish I got a 135 instead for the extra jam, but not for the N54 garbage. Maybe upgrade it to a N55 135 if I get bored one day.

135 seems like a fun car for the $$$$. At one point, I was going to buy my buddy's 128 but it just wasn't the right timing.

Lack of garage space > me.

Installed the next size backward facing seat in the Lexus. There is like ZERO front leg space now. We'll probably try for #2 in a couple of years. The Lexus will have to go but will be hard to find anything FUN and also accommodate 2 back facing car seats.


Would have considered the new 286 hp GTI...but prob too small.

Maybe I'll get a SUV to do baby duties and get a Fiat Abarth and cram it behind the RDX on the driveway. Cheap enough and won't have to deal with parking issues.

Creaking noise front passenger side: Known issue on Genesis forums, hit and miss on warranty work from others but I got mine covered. They had to re-weld A pillar pinch welds.

Rattle on manual shifter. Shift lever bracket and bushing worn. Replaced shifter assembly brackets and pins. Warranty repair.

Clunking noise from driver front wheel area: They said left front stability link loose. They fixed/ replaced but still heard noise afterwards. Fixed under warranty. Now say it requires bearing ount and strut. Didn't have parts when I went in on Friday so need to come back for that to be fixed.

Rear right speaker was blown, replaced under warranty.

Few minor recall fixes.

Dealership and the service guy I've been dealing with have been great with my issues and it's great I have not spent a dime on repairs but sucks that a car with still less than 33,000km on it is having theses problems.

Mechanically it has been good so far.

My 11yr old Santa Fe with 160k on it has held up very well in comparison with just general wear and tear repairs.

Still DD'ing the 335d. At 170k, time to refresh the front end suspension, it's getting a bit worn out. Other then that, no issues since deleted.

I'm thinking maybe the M3 refresh kit from ECS and a B12 setup.. I guess we'll see.

2017 elantra - work/gym mule - good on gas. not ugly. easy to maintain. no complaints.

2017 santa fe sport - wife's mule, home depot/ikea hauler - could be better on gas with a bigger tank. other than that its 3/4 of above.

no fun car yet \:\(

still driving the BRZ... got 135k on it now.

my car has been fine, just did the clutch in December. Just got the letter for the engine recall so I guess that means new engine for me sometime in the near future.

'07 E90 328i - It has low mileage for it's year (140k) and has been good to me. It has enough power for my needs and I didn't want to get wrapped up in the 335 headaches. It has a bunch of packages that make it more than adequate and desirable for me. I used to daily it but don't drive it all that much anymore.

'12 Odyssey EX-L - Pretty much what you would expect. Its a been reliable, spacious and all around great family hauler.

Edit: The Odyssey is RIDICULOUS when it comes to gas mileage, not sure if others experience the same pain. It averages 15 L which is mostly based on city driving.

I'm thinking about replacing the M3, but like hyper, what's next?! Also this thing isn't worth much at this point so is anything going to pose this much fun / dollar? Hator, if using the GT3 as a 2 person car anyway, why are you missing the rear seat, or is it because you can't use it as a 3 seater? We never use my M3 as a family car so I've been thinking about going to drive a GT3.

GT3 is a 2 seater only. It would be nice to take the whole fam out in it that's all.

Even if it had back seats would your wife fit in the passenger seat if kid's back there? My wife is 5'3" and is cramped in the E92 M3, but isn't in the E90 as backseat is much larger.

For those with the M3's when you're thinking about selling let me know.

As for my list:
11 Maxima "premium" not a bad car but lacks soul compared to my 540i/6
09 Rav4 V6 - for the wife, but it moves pretty quick

Toys
78 GMC stepside short box truck
81 cb900f supersort
