Thank you for being well-informed and helpful.
1. Tom’s right on. Do NOT go on a Saturday. Go on a weekday on your lunch break and be right up front about what you’re there for, whether it’s to get the gift card or a joyride. Maybe they’ll just give you the gift card, maybe they’ll say you can drive the car to kill some time. The worst they can say is no and you…
That third question is Salty Waitress level stupid.
To the guy looking at Type R’s, why don’t you rent one for a few days on Turo (no relation, unfortunately for me) and see if you like it before blowing several thousands on a car you might hate.

Porsche options can get so crazy +20-40% on top of trim level price, you really need to find the original MSRP to make sense of the deal.

I use on-line sites like Autotrader and Carguru and CarFax and put the search on “nationwide.”
Thanks Jalop! This article is about me and tomorrow I’m going to look at all the cars suggested plus a 328d wagon that someone mentioned in the comments.
However, I think Erik was having a bit of fun about the no kids business since I stated that I do not and will not be having kids. Weird flex, but okay.

It’s kind of funny that these Spider-Man movies, which are part of the MCU but not made by Marvel Studios, seems to have a theme of “MCU poster boy Tony Stark is a terrible person who people worship like Jesus and Peter whose movie rights are owned by Sony must ultimately grow beyond his influence.”
