I saw the Genesis on the road one day and i thought it was a Lexus or Mercedes, until I saw the badging. LOL. Its a really nice Hyundai. I wouldn't buy one becuz its not going to hold its value. In 2 or 3 years it'll be worth the same amount as a mint 6MT Legend coupe.

Since you're considering 2 doors....


Audi A/S5. I'd go w/the S version, personally. Saw a black one in person in a parking lot on Saturday, and even the wife was impressed.

Yea +1. My buddy has an A5 and even being a 'lower' version it was impressive. Interior build quality/fit and finish is unsurpassed imho.

Got damn this guy is a prick.

Do you have ANYTHING positive to say? Ever? I guess you were born knowing everything ever about any topic. It must be nice to be omniscient.


I'm not opposed to a Euro car at all, I would love an m5 or 5series coupe, or a c63 AMG. Problem is reliability. I want to hold onto the beetch for 4-6 years. I'd be spending insane amounts of dough after 2-3 years. If the money works out, maybe I would consider a Euro.... I was totally joking about the Euro/douchebag thing.....playing up to the stereotype.

The LS460 is still the frontrunner...

I test drove an RL yesterday : LOSS ! That v6 is waaaaaay too underpowered for the car. If/When the v8 comes out for the RL, I'll add it back to the consideration list. I may already have my new car by then, however...


The dealer is hunting me down an m45 AWD to test drive this weekend. I'm thinking I will be cutting it to two: M45 & LS460

This is true . . . the disadvantage of modern-day Acuras, sadly.

I will second on the Audi S5, however, very much so! Those are simply beautiful cars, and not at all underpowered.


Test out a six-speed, you might surprise yourself

It should also be noted: I WILL be adding a Legend by next Christmas.

No matter what I decide on my next car purchase, I am going to hold off on the rims and mods and save that cash to get me a Leggy. I need one in my life!

Skyline is a bit too sporty for me. I'd love one one day, but not for my next car purchase


Can you say suspended license after my 50th ticket in 50 days?
