It's Been Fun!

Well guys, the day finally came. I sold my TL
I'm going to miss it a lot but it's time to move on. Need a more practical car and I want to get back into sport bikes. Thanks for everything guys! I will miss the 3g community.

Here are a last set of pics of my car through her different stages up until I sold her. I got her when she was stock:

Sad to see this gone. Hope the buyer will treat your car the same. What sports bike are going for?

Good luck in finding a new car. The TL looked fantastic, hopefully the new owner will appreciate it as much as you did.

Ahhhh yes-now I remember that famous "hugging my TL" picture.


It can still be fun though. Just because you don't own it doesn't mean we're kicking you off the site.

The pic of you hugging it with your girl pouting was the greatest TL pic ever, haha, nice.

Sad to see you go but stop by and say hello sometimes and let us know what you get next!

Haha thanks guys. By practical I mean something not slammed with a loud greddy evo 2 system haha. And something a little bigger such as a 4runner.

GP16 is that your cbr? How do you like it?

I dont get it really. Everyone is telling me that I need to lower my car and drop it with coilovers and all that stuff but then again everyone that does it ends up selling shortly after... Wtf. My TL is my more "practical" car since before I had a Dodge ram Hemi gas hog lol.

Sad to see you sell but I know its all for good reasons, nobody is going to keep a car forever, they dont last

Getting the cbr was a biggest reason for selling it to. Now I have a toy and a practical car that can carry much more, tow my bike, and that the woman can drive without scraping and curbing up my wheels

Nice CBR 6... like they say rubber side down. Yes I had a lot of asphalt samples.

You had a very nice TL, some other person is lucky now.

Nice bike man! and Nice deal you got on it, it's barely even broken in
