Cheating

Postby square head » Mon Dec 14, 2009 7:10 pm

The following probably won`t happen but I value the djk`s input. You guys keep a much better watch over the market.

Previous owner of the Touareg really, really, really wants it back.

Faced with a similar issue 16 months ago when I purchased Snow White, I ended up with the mule. Don`t get me wrong, I love the thing. The realistic side of me says free up a little cash to get into another rental property. The other side of me says be stupid and get some liabilities while I`m unattached.

I miss:

The handling of a car
A manual gear box
(both of which Gretta have)

I need:

Something reliable
AWD (ideally for skiing)

I average 30,000 km per year in driving

There will soon be a couple of trucks for towing and hauling that I will have access to for such occassions

Thoughts:
`07 RS4 - Have come down in price to around 35 - 38. Gas mileage is terrible.
930 Turbo... Rob you mentioned there was a thread of someone who dailys theirs
996 Turbo... Wow are they ever cheap. I know most purists don`t care for them but great bang for your buck.

I was gonna say keep it until I saw the alternatives you're considering... you probably should however keep it.

.......but I say 996TT and some snows.

You don't NEED AWD.

The BMW does fine in all kinds of shit with some good snows.
Upgrade your grey matter 'cause one day it may matter.

Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...

Insurance for '02 996 TT

$738 / year

They need to confirm with head office but that is what the system says. Touareg is around $1400 / year.

Go figure.

Good point on the RWD Rob.

Or maybe you could create the Litt forums and just post there with your brother since you guys only post in your own thread anyways :)
