    Not bad, a little expensive IMO, but I'm overly thrifty.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    At your age (or heck even mine) I wouldn't get a brand new car. The cost of insurance due to having to keep full coverage on it, plus the hit for being a male under 25 with less then 10 years of driving experience = the suck.

    But hey if you're happy with it, more power to you

    He obviously has no class. Because of course that Uhh maker has the same class as Honda.


    Maybe he was priced out of the Honda?
    Such is life.

    The honda was a used, moderatly souped up, and had 150k on it. I figured why make payments on that when it might die on me ya know.

    Under my dads insurance, full, its not too bad.

    The RX7 has been gone for about 3-3 1/2 weeks now. I had it in a friends shop on a lift to take the motor out and one of the locals was really into it, so he took over payments on the car because i was kinda wanting a change anyway.

    The problem is a trend i have been following. Driving a car for a few months then mod'n it and ending up with no car when the stress gets to them (the RX7 was car two, first was the mustang). So i finally decided to just get a new, warrenty covered car and drive it like i gave my soul for it.

    Sadly, I think I will have to get a new car. Our Toyota was in for it's inspection Friday and failed with a series of, individually, fairly trivial problems, but collectively, the repairs will probably cost more than the thing is worth.

    Any kind of car work here is frighteningly expensive.

    Probably about as expensive as getting a german car fixed over here. Ouch.

    There aren't any cars made in Denmark, ALL cars are foreign.
