    in white color, creeping in a supermarket parking lot. Very nice looking car.

    2007 BMW 328i Sports Pkg, 1993 Honda Accord EXR (my 33rd car).

    they got rid of the totally useless 3rd row (that few people even bought) and converted that space to be the spare tire well.

    If Toyota had come out with this model last summer, I would have given it serious consideration before we bought the Acura.

    2013 Acura RDX (wife's), 2007 Volvo S40 (when daughter lets me see it), 2000 Acura TL (formerly son's, now mine again), and new Jetta SE (son's first new car on his own dime!)

    Saw an Avalon, must have been a higher model as it seemed to have a lot of chrome, the weird fish mouth was definitely out there.

    Yeah, my Mom's has that. I don't think anyone but a small child could fit back there.

    Fintail,
    I hate that grill on the Avalon. It's not a bad looking car, but the front is a deal breaker.

    Saw a white one today, the odd thing was it had CA license plates (in DC).

    Really has presence on the road.

    Saw 2x Tesla sedans, both white, I suspect it was actually the same car. I noticed the front LED turns off when turning, like an Audi - doesn't look right to me.

    Also a new Sentra - high trim model not rental, a new Accord that had distinct DI clatter, and a new Civic.

    I've noticed on Audis that the white LED is replaced with a yellow LED turn signal now.

    I saw my first new (restyled) Chevy Impala. Except for the rear it looks exactly like a Malibu. This could be a problem for Chevy since I often mistake the Cruze for a Malibu.

    Saw a dark blue Tesla sedan today.

    Saw a black Tesla in Fort Worth yesterday, dealer tag on the back. Very nice-looking ride. I had my windows down and all I heard from the Tesla was wheels on pavement.

    Saw a silver Tesla sedan today, boring color - you can spot the LEDs from a mile away though. Also a new Nissan Quest, rental, Michigan plates.

    All you guys seeing Teslas. I haven't seen one here in Southern NJ.

    You guys get very cheap full-service gasoline there. ;)

    Insurance it what kills your costs, right?

    Don't remind me. It's crazy $3400/ year 2 drivers, 3 vehicles (2 full coverage). No accidents, no tickets.

    I'd rather pump my own gas, its faster. I know I'm certainly in the minority.

    That is insane. One driver, two vehicles (1 full coverage, one vintage), no accidents or tickets, costs me maybe $1500. And I am trusted to pump my own gas.

    "All you guys seeing Teslas. I haven't seen one here in Southern NJ. "

    I'm seeing one every day now, somebody's parking a white one in the garage at work. Haven't seen more than a couple on the road, though.

    Today - black Tesla, white on white (!!!) BMW Gran Coupe, 2x X1, Sentra that was likely a rental, and an Equus with shiny wheels that made me think "Buick".
  • tjc78tjc78 JerseyPosts: 5,023
    Yeah, my Buick has shiny wheels. I kinda like them! :)

    Saw a new Encore at the dealer tonight. Didn't have time to check it out, but it was parked in front of an Enclave and looked tiny.

    The whole car made me think "Buick", but I know what you mean. These wheels looked to maybe be a polished metal rather than bright chrome, but still pretty shiny. The overall car design says "suddenly it's 2006!" to me, like a big cross between a similar year Lacrosse and Lucerne.

    They are rolling out a refreshed Equus this month at NYIAS. Maybe they'll bump it up to 2010 or so.
