G$ also has me confused. I thought he made a lot of money, was young, and would never put a lot of money into a car. From what I've gathered lately, he has grey hair, doesn't make that much, especially for NYC, and is looking to buy an expensive luxury car. #nostalker

Gotcha, I have a very limited sample size driving BMWs. I drove my sister's 7 series on a 3 hour drive. It was definitely nice (but too large for my taste). I just couldn't see myself plopping down more than twice as much for it. My brother in law later drove my TSX and was pissed when he realized how much I paid. But different people have different needs/tastes.
classlessthug: I have too much on my plate to worry about the fact that my junk intimidates some needle D undergrad.
i'm not that young anymore, time flies when you're having fun. I certainly don't make a lot of money, guys with lots of money have 7-series with a driver.
Do 7-series owners have drivers? That would be odd. I'd think if you had a driver, you couldn't care less how the car handles. That's what Town Cars are for.
the managing partner of my firm has a 7 series and a driver. He drives the car himself on the weekends and the driver chauffers him around during the week. I guess it's the economy version of having a diver. Town Cars are passe, the BSD's are driven in big escalades.
waiting for NYCTerp05's update
I had a BMW as my last car (m5), and loved it. However, I lease on a business (new not used) and one of the reasons I would always tell people to go BMW is their maintenance program. Not paying a dime over the life of the lease (up to 4 years) is HUGE especially compared to a Lexus. I am not sure how old the cars you are looking at are, and what they do for maintenance on those.
When looking for a new car, I told my wife that any car we look at has to have similar maintenance program. We looked at BMW x5, x6, a few Audi's, and settled on the Cayan.
re: bmw 328
"every college grad buys one."
How the fuck?
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
living in Manhattan, you will likely have a lot of short trips which are terrible for a car, especially one with a high end German engine. Driving an engine cold and then shutting it down before the engine warms up properly could cause engine problems later on. I would think it makes sense to lease a high end car if you live in Manhattan. By the time the engine problems may occur from all of those short trips-- it is somebody else's problem. Plus they often have low mileage limits which shouldn't be a problem if you live in Manhattan.
I base my car decisions on tailgating potential.
serious question G$, how much are you driving a car these days? If it is majority for Hamptons weekends, zipcar can work.
I commute to Long Island about one day a week now. I drive to Maryland for football/basketball games at least 8-10x per year. It's not just for the Hamps in the summer.
99% of my driving is outside of Manhattan. I'd say 90% of my miles are highway too.
BMW is offering 6 year warranty -- so I buy three year old car and when I'm ready to sell when the warranty has expired
I miss the old days when G$ lectured everyone on what a bad investment a new car is and how much smarter he was for taking the bus.
This thread seems like a good place to get the suque's opinion on the Cadillac line up.
Is the CTS a good value?
Is the SRX too soccer mom?
Is the CTS-V baller?
This is important.
warranty is different from their maintenance program. do the math on a newer used car that still has a few years left on that before making your choice.
I miss the days when you actually read threads and made comments based on the content. The car I buy will be used and paying cash is a drop in the bucket for me. Yes, taking the bus is incredibly better option in commuting to work and doing your daily run of errands and the like which is still my situation.
My buddy's mechanic has a CTS, said it was the worst car he's ever owned.
eh, I guess, but I still have the opinion that Cadillacs are for old people and blacks trying to look monied.
yeah, add the Infiniti G37 or the M35 to this mix.
My dad had a M35 and it was great
Our last 4 cars were Infiniti's, and we couldn't be happier with them. Have had no problems with any of them, incredibly accommodating dealership for maintenance, and they give incredible performance and comfort/luxury for the price. Not the rolling couches that Lexi are, and none of the Beamer/ Audi brandname markup.
what does your maintenance bill look like, i know that scared me away from any Lexus for sure?
im sorry i was confusing...your "Superbowl" was the Redskins losing since you know that the Ravens cant win it all.
Buy an Audi. You're gonna like that A6.
I guess I don't understand the allure of free maintenance. I mean, it's not like the dealer/company is offering you something out of the goodness of their hearts. They clearly make the money up elsewhere.
I understand that there's value in having predictable costs for a certain period of time, but I guess it strikes me as being the same as buying a warranty on whatever product from Best Buy. Sure, you might get "lucky" and the warranty saves you money, but there's a reason Best Buy sells them.
Am I off base?
