Currently driving a 2009 Toyota Rav4 Sport. 68k miles, runs good, but looking to use it as a winter/beater vehicle.

Now that I have a good career and can afford it, I'm thinking about a Dodge Challenger, possibly manual Hemi. Of course I'll only drive this when the weather in the Buffalo area cooperates.

I'd consider myself a pretty big car enthusiast, having owned a few cars in my approximately 11 years of driving, including the following past vehicles:

1996 Mercury Mystique
2001 Ford Focus
2009 Mazda3
1998 Mercedes SLK230
2002 Mercedes SLK32 AMG
2015 Mazda3

Currently, I think I've found the ideal two vehicles to own as a pair for the young car enthusiast:

"The Rocket", my Subaru WRX STI. This is my "don't touch it unless you've just washed your hands" car.
IMG_3457.JPG
"The Shadow", my Focus ST. This is my daily driver, and it's pretty much the ideal daily driver. Practical hatchback, plenty of power, comfortable and quiet on long journeys (usually to theme parks).

I just installed coil overs last week. That wheel gap was killing me, Only lowerd it about 1.5 inches.. I also installed demon eyes and halos. I don't have eny extreme mods just some tastefull mods to keep my car reliable.

Your going to be so stoked once you go stage 1 (access port) it's like driving a whole new car, and best of all, no turbo lag.

I'm anxiously awaiting the day I can get my next car. 1.) I'm tired of having a super tiny car. 2.) When you are use to change cars several few times a year, it's hard to stay in one for YEARS!! :(

Sorry or the double post, but. . .

I went and looked at a new car today, and so far I have been super pleased by it. As most of you know, I have a really bad back, and I have a LOT of back problems. The only reason I went to look at this car is because the driver's seat has the "massage seat" feature. Which, as you can imagine, means my car seat will give me a massage while I am driving. . . And when you have the back problems that I have, any type of relief is very much appreciated! The only problem with the new car is that it gets 17 mpg. . . and having a husband who drives a Tesla. . . Trying to convince him to allow me to get a car that get's awful gas millage is damn near impossible. . .

However, aside from the massaging seat, there was another feature I loved, that I wasn't expecting. . . and that was the "approach" lighting. . . Which meant as I got close to the car with the key in my pocket, it projected a "welcome mat" on the ground below the doors, and the door handles lit up with a nice soft glow! We are going to test drive it tomorrow, and if all goes well, I MIGHT.... and that's a BIG might. . . Get a new car tomorrow!!
