I’m still contemplating and debating if replacing the beetle will be necessary. Here is the tough part; if I replace it, it will most likely be automatic and I want it to be cheaper than the beetle.
My wife is putting our daughter to sleep; which could take anywhere from 5 minutes to 5 hours; so; how is Oppo doing?
I sold my Beetle to a small car lot that’s part of a slightly larger dealership group last Friday. He drove it about ten days ago and then I didn’t hear from him so I thought he decided not to make an offer. Well; he came back with the exact number that was my bottom dollar last Thursday; I made a small reasonable…
I got my VW back from the dealer for a couple of little things and then cleaned it nicely and promptly listed it for sale. I’m jonesing to save the money or go 335d shopping.
I listed my Beetle for sale last night and the first person to contact me this morning is a dealer. He wants to come check out my car. Anything specific to know about selling in such a situation? Photo from a car show taken by my daughter for your time:
Lately, I’ve been missing the days of perusing craigslist and actually wanting the cars I’ve looked at. I haven’t been on Craigslist or Cargurus much lately; because why look at things I don’t really want? This a complete first world problem, and a true sign of how good my 996 is for what I need most of the year. The…
The in-laws and I teetered slowly and sorely off a ferry boat taking us back from a pretty remote island in Lake Superior where we had spent the past 5 days backpacking 45 miles. What do I see in the parking lot, but a bonafide sports car; and not just any sports car but a real live Porsche:
How’s Oppo doing?
I’ve been grappling with replacing my turbo beetle with something that preferably accomplishes two things; something more practical and preferably an automatic. But I also really don’t want to spend much money as any car I get will probably only be driven 1,000-5,000miles a year and mostly when my alley is too rutted…
My wife was hit by a lady yesterday; low speed t bone. Her and my daughter so far seem fine thankfully. The person who hit them? She was a real piece of work. Expired license, expired tabs, and her insurance card said expired (but she insisted it was up to date).
Well folks; reasonable mileage S4s with the 3.0 engine can now be had for $15,000. I still may decide to just sell the Beetle and not replace it. But if I do; I think I’m going to go with one of these:
Well, I got my 996 out last night after dinner while my wife and daughter went to go Pokémon-ing. It fired right up; and I pulled away. 1 minute into the drive the idle goes super erratic and then boom ABS/PSM lights; which are a signal for MAF being disabled and going to stock fuel maps.
That my alley is melted off enough to actually get my 996 out on the streets. My one biggest regret about choosing to live in the city is that the alleyways are so poorly maintained in the winter that it’s tough to take my car out. And my garage is on the alley. I haven’t had it out since early January.
Audi released the newer A3 with two options: the 2.0T Quattro and the 1.8t with front wheel drive. The Quattro model didn’t see a lot of people spec the sport package, but a fair amount. And why not? iIt became a GTI in sedan form with awd and 10 extra hp. If I had to guess based on my internet shopping, 5-8% added…
I have been wanting to replace my turbo beetle with something that offers 2 of 3 of the following:
GMPorschenut wins the Oppo of the day award.
Anyone have any solutions for me?
As many of you may recall; I’m contemplating replacing my beetle with something more practical and automatic. A car I forgot existed until tonight popped back into my head.
I swung by a dealer on my way to REI for shotgun style Christmas shopping(buying for numerous people in various parts of the store). They had a 2014 VW Jetta GLI on the lot. I’ve been trying to find the right car to compliment my 996 lately: carry 4-5 people, a roof rack when needed, and preferably an automatic so my…
