Lol, maybe. Ksa has been on, but hasn't responded, so I imagine he is busy. Maybe he decided on something.

Err, if going for new car, friendly for family and sporty - -

Indeed, no 2+2 seating severely limits your choices!

You'll most likely be looking at sport luxury sedans rather than muscle cars or sports cars!

The 335i is a nice choice, as is the M3. . heh

Subaru Impreza STi or Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, I think they have 5 seats?

Technically, yes, but more than 4 people into an Impreza is a torture.

@cripple: sounds like you've had some good times in the Impreza.

I forgot to add, the BMW 335d is a great choice for someone looking for good MPG. . its a luxurty sport sedan that gets 23/36 EPA rating! And 425 lb. ft of torque!!

So I finally made a purchase, may have paid more than I innitially wanted to but I am elated with this car, I love me a silver car. 2008 Cadillac CTS, 3.6 liter 6spd auto, (manual trans is almost impossible to find). Only options it doesn't have is navigation and cooled seats.

From my very limited testing so far, I should have no problem at least getting the same mileage as my Intrepid and possibly beat it.

I may make a new thread soon to showoff my new car, but I am very excited to see what kind of mileage I will get with this car, especially since there is no useful data on this site for other CTS's.

Sweet! I only ever see them with hoodlums and rims and hats not worn correctly lol. Those and the Lincoln LS are very popular right now for that crowd. But they are buying a badge, not a drive train and vehicle.

Never heard a bad thing about them- look forward to seeing what you can do!
