Well, I'm a hardcore BMW Fanatic. So, for sporty coupe I would go for a M6 or 645CI, a sporty sedan, any 5 series (preferably M5), and for a SUV, a X5. Of course I can't afford anyone of those right now, but hopefully I will be able to acquire my mom's mystic blue 04 BMW 530i in a few years. Don't get me wrong, I love my Accord, but I've always loved BMWs.


This is my mom's car:






2006 Pontiac GTO 6.0L 6MT

Mods: Upgraded to 6mt 17in wheels with Fuzion ZRI 215/50-17 tires, tint

I feel the same way when I get to drive my mom's car. I love the way it connect with the road, the sound of the engine, the way I feel when I'm driving it, etc. LoL

If I was doing it all over today I'd buy a 2007 Toyota Tundra w/ the 5.7 4x4, TRD w/ the JBL NAVI.

That is a hot truck! Any dreams I had w/ the Ridge were shot down after I drove that beast. Similar mileage and a way awesome V8.

I want one. It will probably be my next vehicle. Let's hope the rumors about a diesel in it come true. The day that comes is the day I buy one.

I voted Accord but for the coupe. When I think sports car, I think a 2 door vehicle, 2 seater with a useless rear seat if any, and it typically does not have a 4 door counterpart: Prelude, S2000, Corvette, Sky, Viper, Miata, etc... Though I thoroughly enjoy that class of vehicle, as a daily driver than can be trying: firmer rides, touchy clutches, low to the ground so visibility in day to day traffic would suffer.

The Accord coupe offers the best of everything for me: handles great, fun to drive, rides well, is comfortable, plenty of create comforts, and fairly economical. And especially in the coupe form, looks pretty damn good.

Makes an excellent one vehicle choice for single person.

Current: 2016 Mazda 6 GT, 1989 Prelude Si

Hey everybody Im new to the group here...

One formation of the Accord Ive been waiting for since the cancellation of the 5th gen Accord wagon, is the RETURN of the Wagon in either the 7th gen or 8th gen Accord design.

As for a single vehicle...
Im very anti-SUV. Id prefer a wagon version of the Accord. Something like the new "Camry Wagon"

Id like the vehicle to weight about 3000lbs, not more than 3200lbs.

Current: 2.3ltr I4, 00 Accord 4dr SE, Red ext / Tan int, current mil 197k. Top mi per 17.1 tank 500 Ave 28.mpg. I also do 138.6mi. a day, 12k every 85 days.

My 1st Love: 2.2ltr I4, 4dr 92 Accord LX, Grey ext / Red int. Passed away with 231.150.4 2 Days before Xmas 2006. Top miles per 17gal tank 405.

The PRELUDE to Life ACCORDing to the VIGORous and LEGENDary Accord rules, all else blows.

i'm keeping my tsx. the ONLY thing that would try to pull me in a different direction is larger for hauling stuff (like our current basement project lumber/drywall/doors) and family when they are visiting. but none of those types of vehicles come in a manual transmission (or they aren't ones i'd even consider to begin with.) so tsx it is. i'll rent what i need for those other times.

but by picking a tsx (especially when he could get numerous other things for the same cost) stevel would probably either a. kick me out or b. leave me and form his own household....

so we might also have to employ that "dividing of household" so we could have the cars we want.



Current:
06 Nighthawk Black Acura TSX 6 spd~mine~20mm tl sway bar
08 Alabaster Silver Metallic RDX Tech Pkg~stevels'

Retired:
06 Sapphire Blue Accord V6 6spd sedan w/navi~stevel's~Accord all season floor mats and trunk tray
04 Nighthawk Black EX Accord Coupe~5spd~crooked

03 Ruby Red Pearl LX Civic Sedan (at)
00 Vintage Plum Pearl LX Civic Sedan (at)
