New car in the family!

Hey, how's everyone doing? I know I haven't posted much lately, but I got a few moments and thought I'd share.

My mom and dad just picked up a brand new car. I was totally shocked at their decisions. This car is for my mom. It's a 2005 BMW X3 3.0i. It's gorgeous. Sorry for the lack of pictures, but I will get them as soon as I take em. So here's just a few shots from online. I can't wait to take it for a spin. thumbsup

It's also somewhat of a sad story too. We're no longer a Toyota family. cry We've moved up.

um just to tell u... a accord V6 would rip a GT apart... they are fast as hell my mom owns one and i raced an M3 from the roll and ripped it a new ass hole. They are fast cars, i know it would win against a GT and it gives a GTS a run for it's money 240HP (around 220HP or so at the wheels and has VTEC) they are fast..

Thanks a lot everyone. I really love the car, and it's a blast. I took a look at what retail is, and with theoptions that the car has, it will run somwhere around $42K.

M3's are "luxury" N/A, "heavy", RWD sports sedans. Evo's are essentially rally cars. M3 would tear an Accord two new assholes any given day of the week, even the older E36's. Hell, probably the E30's as well.
