*sigh* I may just wait until someone hits me or the car blows up on it's own. A shame really, I love driving it. Just not sure about how much more I want to throw at it this year.
You've got some good coices there, but the A4 is no more reliable than a BMW. In my instance, the STI would be fabulous, were it not for the cost (and I am too big for the older ones), the Mazdaspeed 6 faces some reliability issues, and both the Legacy GT and G35 are too small for me.
I think the only way that I'll be able to get something that fits my wants/needs is to drop 60+ pounds.
Right now, the Mazda3 is out front -- I want to drive another one for a longer period of time before I do anything though. I need to be sure that I'll be comfortable drivign up to my cottage and the like.
