damn...

washed my car yesterday, and after 11 years and 179,000 miles its showing its age! Well some parts. Since its not really been garaged since I've had it for almost 4 years, stupid sprinklers are making the paint dull especially because I cant wash it every time it hits my car. And its my passenger side too, so my drivers side is nice and shiny, but my passenger side is quite a bit more dull. Its noticeable

One side i'm like damn, this car looks so nice!
#movestotheotherside
damn this car looks so nice! Awww why's the paint not shiny

edit: I am shocked that how enzo is still in one piece... I see no major damage.

I'm guessing the car had slicks, or something close to it, gravel threw it off, that course should have been looked through before he ran

Sand/gravel FTL.

This article says it was the ocean. Salt water would make a huge difference in salvagability.

Those seats look cheap as hell.

It reminds me of the interior on a Chrysler.

OK, so which has the most buttoned-down, low-body-roll, nimble-through-the-curves chassis? Seventh generation EX-L V6 MT Accord Coupe, first generation Acura TSX, current generation Mazda 6 i Sport or a fourth generation Subaru Legacy GT? Or just make out a check for a 328i, reliability and winter climate be damned?

(I've driven them all, but not on similar roads)
