Stable Updates

The Veloster N was a horrible daily driver, so after only 6 weeks, I traded it for another (my 3rd) BMW i3, this time the S performance model. The Veloster had ridiculously stiff suspension that got the car airborne on every freeway surface imperfection, even on the softest setting. MY FAULT. I should've done a more thorough test drive. I took a huge $$$ loss, but I've got more money than brains.

I desperately tried to NOT buy another i3, but no other car I drove does a better job as a daily driver.

I'd also like to replace the aging Yaris with something new for my roadtrips ... good luck with that!

The red/black colour combination adds another element to the already weirdly unique i3. I like it!

Was gonna ask if they still made new i3s, but then I saw the CPO plate.

That cactus doesn't look fun to accidentally brush up against when stepping out of the garage. lol

5 years old is considered "aging"?
