    the wife was just talking about turning the heat back on tonight. I told her to suck it up. In slightly nicer terms

    Opened mine on Sat, and got a sunburn in the process. Rain hasn’t stopped since. Excellent timing on my part.

    It's a car. Didn't notice if it had turn signals or not B)

    I suspect the Supra variant might have those more.

    Saw my first Audi A5 4-door sportback. From what I can tell it's a fastback A4, without a hatchback. Nice looking, but I'd go for the A4.

    It is a hatchback

    Yeah, I was just about to come here and correct that. The only pic I could find on the Audi site seemed to show a trunk support on the cropped photo, but I've since found other pics.

    I have seen 7 different Maserati Ghiblis (all different colors) in the past month or so in my little town just north of Plano, Texas (where a Maserati dealership resides). I’m amazed that there are that many people buying a Maserati.

    Have you also notice the large number of MB G-wagons? More than I've ever seen (I'm in far north Dallas).
  • fintailfintail Posts: 47,389
    I've seen 2015 model Ghibli (virtually indistinguishable from a new one) down to around 25K now. I still wouldn't go for it.

    When I was used G-Wagen browsing, I did notice many were in TX, including a blue one I actually inquired about, but it had sold a few hours prior.

    @texases, I don’t think I’ve seen any more than one or two G-wagons here in several years of looking. I see quite a few older ones when we go to Santa Fe, which makes sense as a company there was the sole importer of gray market ones for a long while before MB started offering them stateside.

    I'm seeing 1 or more a week here, sometimes 2 in a day.

    Can get a 2012 QP for even a few bucks less. I’d much rather opt for that.

    I might save up and get a new style one, not insanely more expensive (I think 2014s can easily be found well under 40K), and maybe easier to live with. The 00s style car, while pretty, is also pretty dated inside, and I can't believe is anything but a maintenance gongshow.

    Durango SRT, blowing by me on I-75.

    Aggressive looking, from front and rear.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!

    @texases You must be in that high tone Preston Hollow/Highland Park area. Up here in the ‘burbs, that’s a bit rich for our blood. B)

    Nope, almost in Plano. That's why it caught my attention over the last four or so months...

    I saw a M-B A250 hatch today in traffic for the first time. I was surprised at how good it looked.

    Something else, like the C and E53 wagons seen in Loonieland that apparently are too cool for Murka.
  • ab348ab348 Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, CanadaPosts: 10,045
    Ah, I wasn't sure if they were sold south of the border or not. Certainly looked much better than the old B-series bread vans they tried selling here 10 years or so back.

    I like that A class. Sharp.

    The only thing about the A-class I am iffy about is the dash, which looks like several other current MB models. I actually like the "glass cockpit" digital instruments and screens, but the round vents, the shiny black plastic and some other parts look a bit boy-racerish to me and I'm not a fan of the look.

  • fintailfintail Posts: 47,389
    That specific vent design is a coupe thing, I think MB is trying to inject the pretense of sport into the car - the brand has been doing that throughout the range, and I can't say I support it all. That car also has the fancier style steering wheel also seen in coupes and AMG models, and it's a nice unit.

    The full digital gauges being standard is a cool thing and a hint at the future. I think the display may be unique to this model, as it seems shorter in height than the screen in the E or S. The screen being very exposed with a thin bezel makes me a little leery.

    The B eventually came to the US, but only as an electric, and I think it has been a slow seller.

    Saw 2x new Navigators on the road yesterday. Bling bling.
  • qbrozenqbrozen Posts: 25,613
    Saw a Stelvio. Nothing special ... until it drove past me. It was a quadrifoglio.

    Saw a GMC pickup with that multi function tailgate. Pricy truck.
    Also, a new Leaf parked across the street. Much more mainstream looking now.

    Saw a new Lexus LS500 today. Wow, have they made their flagship sedan low. I think it was about as low as the wife’s Civic, which is not easy for me to get into.

    Saw a BMW X7, ,"driver" had a phone in their hand because of course. Also saw a new style G-Wagen, I think only the 2nd or 3rd I've seen on the road.
