So, if I really gave a crap, I'd apologize for wasting the time of those who have taken the time to respond to my car-choice related threads. Turns out, spending lots of money on a car is a stupid idea. Especially in Hong-couver where there's a traffic accident every 0.33 minutes, leaving those who normally enjoy driving in a near-homocidal rage. Not that I won't return the calls of the dealerships that have promised me test drives of various fun vehicles...(A4 Avant included, but they have a measely 170 hp...) My bubble of automotive enthusiasm has burst beneath the pressures of longterm practical thinking. And you know what? It sucks eggs. I guess I'll have to spend a couple grand on a bike instead. MKIII Hollowpoint anyone? Sh!t. 250hp would have been such fun. Friggin frickadoodle. Poop. Fa. ug. pssssssssssssshhhh.... and we're done.
