Yes, the Evoque did the same thing. None of the cars mentioned above, except MAYBE the TrackHawk, can be kept past warranty. This is precisely why I keep the Lexus. It is pretty slow and boring, but I also don't have to worry about anything going wrong.

I will say that my neighbor really seems to like his Model X. It is top of the range and was well north of $100k, but it is stupid fast. I think that they are ugly, but what do I know.

No X. It's not practical to add a charger in our parking elevator, nor in his condo, plus he's only getting an SUV because he tows 450 mile round trips like 15 times a year in the boonies where idk if they even have chargers. Not worth the hassle with an electric. Plus he's a noisy exhaust kind of guy; I rarely ride motorcycles with him anymore because his are so obnoxiously loud.

The Cayenne isn't reliable because it's an Audi? The real Porsches (yes I said it, fight me) have been really reliable from people I know with them including a couple collectors who own dozens each.

They need to make a RedEye with a stick. I am starting to really suspect that the GT350 is vaporware, so I need to make a backup plan. I had all the local Subaru dealers put me on their list for the S209 but if they even get one I'm sure they will want stupid markup. I hate the Camaro, and the only borderline one ZL1 1LE is too over the top looks-wise to DD for work. (I'd shave the wing on the S209 if I got it, though I do hate how t00ner the widebody is too) Focus RS is dead. I'm not doing anything Audi/VW or BMW and the GT3 Touring has way too much markup. I don't even know what else to look at. I've driven the Z06 and it is meh, don't really want another rear engine for the new one.

I hurt my hip a month ago and it still hurts like it did the next day. Getting old sucks. When I was under 30, it would have taken a week to be back to 100% if I even hurt myself at all. The main reason I care though is because I met a 20-something chick and I don't want to be a gimp if we end up hooking up and waste what is becoming a rare occurrence because I had to stop and rest my hip.

Speaking of being old, Bronco supposedly will get a removable roof and doors and I'm feeling nostalgic.

Man, you might want to go see a doctor about that.

I'm sure it's been this way for awhile but I didn't notice till today... We are now in the future! I saw some Dippin' Dots at the grocery store and they are no longer advertised as the ice cream of the future.

I pity you. This statement means that you don't have Publix, and that is not a good thing.

I'm straight edge other than booze, and even that is rare, so no Medical Mary.

I used to enjoy a little every now and then. I HATE the smell, but apparently you can now vape the oil. I could do that.

Why do medical when you can just live somewhere it's legal (decriminalized, whatever)

Also, day 4 of being in Jamaica, had about 50 people trying to sell me skunk weed so far. Our resort has a "loss prevention" team that makes the drug dealers do their deals off site.

Also, the dealers are all employees of the resort.
