everything ive seen says 0-60 in 5 seconds. Wrong wheel drive. Looks ugly.

interior wasn't that bad though, and the gearbox felt pretty good, wasn't a fan of the rev hang in it.

its 37k for a reason.
I have always felt personally if I were to buy any 300+ hp it needs to at least be AWD or RWD. At least the Focus RS did retain AWD.

I remember the Lincoln MKZ 3.0T FWD version, they had to dumb it down from 400 to 350 to make it more manageable in FWD. But I felt that was unnecessary trim option, should have kept it AWD for all 3.0T

I know the Toyota Camry is a common car for some families, but a shame the TRD V6 version will not get the AWD option that they are offering now for the Camry, since it is off a RAV4 system and will only be for the 4 cylinder engine.

That was a funny bit.

I imagine OP must also only travel in brand new planes, stay in brand new hotels etc :crazy:

Anyways, congrats on the Supra!!
Lol actually . I don't fly drivings to fun. And I prefer to camp when I travel.

I hear ya but, IM not like super rich but I dont have to eat ramen noodles either. However, I do think people are a bit to obsessed with money. What I mean is I have watched people all around me worry about it and scrimp and save for some future that never comes. Just to die never having enjoyed their money because they were always saving it.... for what? what are they saving it for? To die with a big bank account? A dollar only has value if spent. dont go broke and of course keep a nest egg but above and beyond that? Damn enjoy life people :)

As for new versus old. I have several reasons I will never consider a used performance car out side of money and cost and all that. One I enjoy waxing polishing and keeping my paint defect free. Its like my zen garden its my alone time. And a 2 year old plus performance car is gonna be rock damaged and scratched and swirl marked And that would drive me nuts. I dont smoke eat or drink in a car period. Not many others can say that most people will still drink at the least in a car. you dont know how the pervious owner treated the car. did they tinker or mod anything? how many times did they fart in that seat you are now sitting in? LOL It may have a warranty and like you people will say if anything breaks then just get it fixed.... man you got any idea what a hassle that is? dealers are crooks. take forever missed work... yada yada yada.. I rather just have something that isnt a crap shoot when i take it down the road. Money aside there is a gazzilion reasons not to buy a used car. But as far as the money again just live man just live.

fair warning the next part is my old man ramblings...

plus working in the medical field you got any idea how we as humans and our simple biological functions are disgusting? No matter how clean you are there is enough DNA for 1/4 of a human in that used car your buying LOL. Next time your at that light and you see that guy knuckle deep in his nose mining gold remember thats in that used car your buying. dead skin, body secretions, skin oils, every hand lotion, cream they used its all over everything in that used car no matter how clean you get it. flip on that AC in that used car and breath in deep the 2 years of dead skin for every other person who has been in that car.. mmmmm smells like money saved LOL.. and i can promise you 9 out of every 10 cars you could find semen in if you tested it LOL people do some freaky crap in their cars. and if you dont think freaky crap is common come give me a visit ill show you some xrays and ct images from my rad tech days. yeah that guy with the sweet potato up his back side sat in that used cars drivers seat to drive himself to the hospital... yeah Ill stick with new cars thanks.
My nephew told me stories when interning as an MD. Pretty gross.

First let me say I love the car. I am just one of those I like a different car every year or two. I want to try them all :) I have modded all I want on the Mustang and short of getting into now 8 to 10k in mods there isnt much else to do. My friend says get a super charger but I am hard pressed to put a , in total 9 plus K item with labor and tune, on a car that has a resale valve of 34k, thats almost a third the value of the whole car for one item and just ridiculous.

The issue im having is finding something in the same class and price that is equal to or better then the Mustang. I also have the issue of I will absolutely not buy a used performance car period. I have looked at the C8 but right now good luck. I have had 12 dealers tell me most likely wont see a new one not spoken for till about 2022. the waits are that long. Or all they have for sale are the 100k models with all the crap I dont want. Even then out the door with taxes and all 70k is about what a base will run ya and I cant justify that cost for a car.

Ive been to car lots all over the stae and looked at every brand and man cars have gotten expensive. its getting to where the "average" car is getting to 45 to 60 K. I have seen 100k plus cars all over like they are nothing. Its not that I cant afford them, its that its a car not a house and the prices are stupid.

But anyway not sure what IM looking for here maybe I hope people may spark and Idea I didn't think about. But it is looking like that the Mustang is really the best value for what you get and maybe I have just reached the top :) I guess its just my restlessness and always wanting something new.

I have even considered trading out of performance cars and going for something like the kia k5 gt line for a few years and then reentering a mustang with the s650 to "reappreciate" the performance of them.

I dont know , im indecisive lOL what yall think?
I have the same sickness, but I can’t come up with a car to replace mine that wouldn’t cost a lot more with all the features of my Mustang.
Having said that the new Nissan Z is intriguing.

It's your money. It's your phobias. Guess you don't eat at restaurants, take a crap on any toilet but your own or have a woman that silently farts in your car. We humans are quite robust and if we died from farts or sitting on someone elses 3 year old dried jizz stain, our population would be a hell of a lot smaller than it is. I'm driving a 2018 Roush RS2, bought it used and love the hell out of it every time I get in it and fire that baby up. But if I only bought new, I'd be in whatever 40K (not 60K a new RS2 costs) could buy me. New top o the line Honda Accord, or bad ass exclusive American Muscle that someone else farted in a year ago. Hmmm real tough call. As to taking it to the dealer, sorry but new one owner cars have problems too and you still have to go through that hassle. It is not exclusive to slightly used cars that have depreciated 30% due to farts. That said, enjoy your Supra. I looked at them, but they were too new to have used ones in my price range yet.
jesus man, my coworkers are looking at me strange now wondering why im laughing.

Hey, so that’s where you went. Looks great. Good for you. I wouldn’t think you’d get a Lexus…lol.
congrats!
Ever browse the board and not realize it was long ago?
Well, there you go. But if prompted you to come back and say hello, then that’s a good thing. Enjoy your cars. Until you don’t…. :angel: :like::giggle:

How do you like the C8?
I like it pretty good. Its a fairly solid total package. You feel inportant while driving it and get tons of attention from the ladies LOL. Over all though I like my supra better. the 40 to 120 in the supra is off the charts and with the tune its actually faster then the C8. but like any car they all have great points and bad points. I like the c8 enough i have a second one on order and im gonna rent it out through haggerty and it will pay for both LOL.
