    There, I said it.
    I decided Iím going to try to run versions of the old ones I liked. The newer ones are fast and get good gas mileage but they donít have character.

    This will prolly last until I get stranded but it was fun to drive the e46 today.

    I saw my old e90 330i in traffic this morning and I thought, man that was a really good looking, fun car.

    About 10 minutes later I saw a brand new M8 Competition in that plum color and thought, man that's a really fast car that looks completely boring, soulless and ugly.

    Congrats, e46 is probably the best handling car I have ever driven. Fortunately for my wallet they are too small for me to DD (can't fit behind me when I drive). e91 was fun but after a sudden waterpump failure earlier this year I am happy to have sold in the hot market.

    That v60 polestar is way too expensive for me. Hopefully taycans will depreciate like panameras. The new macan EV could be a fun option too even if it is too tall the be a wagon. I need a cheap reliable car for a few years but hope to be back in something fun when the nice evs start getting cheaper.

    Finally. A roof box that can handle 120+mph.

    Let’s all take a moment to appreciate this.

    My Outback with a Thule Sonic XXL on top and definitely hit 120 mph a few times across WY. Not to mention it was crazy windy. The box would get pretty crooked but held up fine.

    Im embarrassed to say that I really havent taken into account the dangers of speed and boxes. I've definitely hit triple digits on the way to Bend many times with a fully laden Packasport but its is torqued on there pretty well.

    My top box is concerning only when I don't have skis in it. Even in the summer I put a pair of old flat skis in it for support. Should only be a problem for the box for looks crowd. WTF stop the gentrification of top boxes.

    I like it.

    I'm actually impressed every time I see a new Genesis.

    I'd still drive it though
    It's a good point, not exactly a sleeper. Meanwhile, my car stands out like a sore thumb but looks way faster than it is. Half the power of that RS6 but same effect on marginal law breakage d'oh! Not remotely in the class of some of the Audis, Bimmers, or Volvos in here, I do enjoy her good looks though...

    Great car, I'm sure you'll get a pretty penny for it. Googling the model this one came up, holy shit, droooooool....

    Similar to this one Simple pointed out below but quite a bit cleaner, black on black, similar power mods, plus suspension and the coveted six speed manual.

    This one I came across, mentioned above, went for $27K. As mentioned, similar mileage, quite a bit cleaner, black on black, just as fast, plus suspension, and with a six speed manual. Market's only getting hotter though. Bet the blue one still gets north of $20K.

    I've been guilty of the same thing, oops. Your Packasport is really well built though. I'd be more confident with that thing up top than my basic Thule, pictured above, which took 130mph one night before I remembered it was up there, d'oh! Seems none the worse for wear but still, I try to keep it under 110 now with the box on just to be safe. Thing bobs up and down pretty good at high speeds especially when it's windy. Kind of unsettling.

    Iíd like to be, maybe next car. For some reason Iíve got myself convinced I canít afford one on a butt wiperís wage. I guess either you spend on maintenance on German cars, or spend on a new block for turbo Subies when they spin a bearing or blow up a piston.

    That's not a Shooting Brake, it has too many doors and the back slopes too much. The Volvo 1800ES is a near perfect example of what one should look like.

    300hp four banger?

    Good luck after 100k miles. Cars are so disposable today, with the computers and the turbos. A four banger F150? Wtf. That shit is doomed. A natural six could last a lot longer.
