Well something that is exciting but breaks down often, wears thin after a while. Sort of like the old saying "chrome won't get you home" which came about from a popular American motorcycle.

It isn't a bad looking car but that is about as much good as I can say about it. The other car in the picture though

Looks awesome! BTW, isn't some of the Northeast supposed to get snow Fri/Sat?

I don't think anything major, but I think on the backside of the rainstorm you're getting now will be snow in parts. May be further north so you might escape...

The sportbacks have grown on me. Wasn't originally a fan of the whole 4 door coupe and I really am not for most brands still but like the 5 and the 7 from Audi.

Agreed, Audi has done a better job than BMW with their designs of the 4door coupes. The rear trunk is insane when opened, it hits the top of my garage door, thought that was interesting...

Rotor upgrade will have to wait but yeah, definitely getting rid of that yellow. Not sure why the previous owner did that since nothing on the car is yellow

Also may or may not be measuring things for a custom set of wheels

Thought I had remembered you saying you would never sell it but that picture had me wondering. Glad to hear you still have it. Looks good rolling.
