D'oh, sorry to hear that.

+1 for Mazda 3

+1 for anything from Honda.

During a "transitional" time and income I'd look for something ultra-reliable first, then see if I can find something still with a little zip to it as a bonus. I really like those mazda 3's. But those honda's are just made so right, it makes me wonder how others get it so wrong, it can't be that big of a secret.

Best of luck in the job hunt, if you don't end up w/ BMW again, having BMW on the resume' should do wonders for the interview. Just hope the Hiring manager doesn't drive an '02 or '03 7 series 8)

well bro, im sorry that your being put in this situation. you know, a used MINI is not a bad idea, they are excellent cars and do pretty well on gas and is hella fun to drive.in the meanwhile, look for another dealer to work at. I really hope everything works out man. GL (and hope u take my advice and get a mini)!!!!!!

Maybe make a pole with the top mentioned cars here? Rabbit, Mini, Civic, Mazda 3, etc.

Much love bro

You had a thread asking where to move and I had said Chicago
I'm positive you will find something there that will even allow you to keep
your car.

I've found most of the "tuner" (can scion be called that? lol) forums are a bunch of stuck up jerks. I got banned from many in my youth, because I was very aggressively defensive, shall we say. Someone would talk crap, and I'd go off on them HARD. So I got banned a lot.

lol yeah don't bother. they are all pretty stuck up and mean when you ask simple questions or other things. many of them upgrade to different cars then usually either never come back or get shunned a little. they think they're pretty bad ass too but they won't even race civics because civics will beat them anyday. haha i'm embarrassed now

So I'm selling my baby, (no, the car!) and looking to pick up something cheaper to pay for, gas up, and insure.

Any suggestions? Anything made in Korea is off the list, as is Saturn... well basically any domestic.

I'm thinking maybe a Yaris, or a Fit, or a Scion. I dunno. I'm gonna miss TORQUE.


Man, this is a bummer.

cars are FAR from what's important in life. being happy has nothing to do with a pile of moving metal.

make sure that you define exactly what career makes you complete and find happiness. then get a car that suits your personality.

from 1995 to 2004 i went up a notch with every car (once a year, like an idiot) from a 1985 Jetta to a 2004 Audi S4 V8. at the end of that year i figured that i wasn't happy and decided to move from New Zealand back to Canada. Back here in 2005 i drove a 1992 Mercury Mystique (paid cash) for a while and that made me feel GREAT because it took all of the superficial crap out of my life and allowed me to concetrate on my inner happiness.

ok, now i drive a 335i but it doesn't define me. it's just fun to have and it's far from driving a massive hole in my budget.

Know thy self grasshopper
