Ryan, when you park your car for the winter, do you just cancel all the insurance, or keep a min just in case?

I just tell them to put it under storage insurance, they just ask me where the car is going to be an tell them how long it will be sitting there. Mine drops a good 60% over winter. That way its still covered for freak accidents

That makes sense. Just by making a mini my primary car and the 911 as a send pleasure car all year round drops my insurance by $600 a year and I am guessing its a bigger drop if its under storage for 5 months.

AWD isnt a must. A fwd car with narrow profile tires will be rock solid. Hence I am leaning towards something thats also fuel efficient. I am getting some serious push back from my female friends about the mini and gti.

I would love a nicer car for a DD, but if I go to much, the regret of selling my 335i pops up and bits me. If i can get reasonablely cheap car I feel good about the whole thing, if I end up with a 2008 128i or 328i, I will just regret letting the old girl go.

Madza 3s look pretty good so far. The honda SI and the GTI styling arent doing it for me.

I think the points you are making are valid. It's hard to have such a nice car for only summer and certain days and have an ehhh kind of winter/ get around car.

My price points are lower than yours since you could afford both the 335 and 911 if you wanted. But having a 335 as my better of the 2 I have I had to choose hard what I could stand driving. I bought an accord sedan but thought about all that you did but I felt I was gonna buy another car that I would mod and I just needed a reliable good gas mileage car. Getting some 35 percent tint put on today and that is all it will get. If I got a Mazda 3 I would wanna start modding it or a gti as well. I want to keep modding for one car and not both which is why I chose what I chose.

It's tough to have an expensive fun car and a cheap second car. If I had the funds I would try to lease a BMW with 0 down and like 400-450 a month payments with awd because u then have 0 maintanence costs and then about the time you may move on from the Porsche you will have both cars gone.

Yea, I hate to admit it, but in hindsight, I would have keep the 335i.

I completely agree with you on the modding. I know I will want to mod whatever I buy and picking one I couldnt is a good choice. Then again, any car decent performance car is overkill in our winters as traction is shit no matter what and add on top of that I disappear for 3 months anyways.

Found a 2011 mini lease takeover, $5.3k for 22 months and 30k miles left. Damn tempting.

That does not sound to bad at all. For 225 a month that sounds really worth it. That's a pretty good option if you like driving it.

You were right, I was wrong. Several of you actually encouraged that, I just took 6 months to see it.
