    I saw an Explorer ST on the road today. It looked understated, which it should as even with 400 hp it takes over five seconds to hit 60 mph. For $62k I'll take a used GC Trackhawk or a new X3 M40i.

    The GC has aged really well considering it’s a relatively old design.

    I know that the target market would be very small, but I wish Jeep built a Trackhawk with more off-road capability. I'd buy one in a heartbeat.

    I’m guessing he may want more equipment than is offered on the S trim level. The turbo shouldn’t be a maintenance headache for a very long time if it’s designed properly.

    Then he may have to put up with AWD.

    My wife got me a bottle of Woodward Reserve for Valentines Day 😭

    Now that's a keeper. All I got was a, "good morning, today is Valentines day. Where are you taking me for dinner". That dinner cost me almost a hundred bucks and it wasn't worth more than 30. :@

    Sure as hell looks like it!! If so, very cool!!
    And yes, if I want a Seltos with the Bose system and all the safety goodies, guess I'm gonna have to suffer with AWD!! Not super happy, but first, let's drive one and see what's what. I might hate it to be honest and as a co-worker told me today, just wait till the new 2021 Golf gets here, if it even comes to the United States, and then make up your mind. You'll probably be quite unhappy if you don't wait. And what he's saying is absolutely right! Why have another potential Tucson incident to deal with? Just test drive both the Venue and the Seltos and see which I prefer. Then wait till VW decides what to import to the U S. And if the Golf SE does get to our shores, heck it out before any purchase is made.
    Sound advice I'd say. So tomorrow, no pressure. Swing by that Kia store in Lighthouse Point and take the SX Turbo for a ride. And then soon after, ditto for the Venue Denim Edition. Then, think real hard what could work for ya. Think real hard what you don't want to give up. Think real hard. And then, just wait. The VW Golf will debut in America soon enough. Waited this long sp, what's a bit longer?

    I'd like to get on the VW list, if I may. Does that have the LSD?

    What's the difference between a ZHP and an M3 for that series?
    I drove my friends M3, both stock and modified, a few times.
    Fun, but too caffeinated for me.

    ZHP is the Performance Package option on a 330.. It does have the M3 bumper... 🙄, but it’s not an M3.

    I seem to remember LSD got a bad rap in the 70's. I guess they've fixed that by now. :o

    I was going to post some more random thoughts on the car show and our short list. But now I am all distracted. So will add details later.

    but right now, the "short" list seems to be an X3, RDX, Santa Fe and Volvo XC60. I am keeping the CRV Hybrid on the list though, at least for a look see drive.

    There's one person, local, who asked I let them know if I was going to sell. Haven't settled on a price yet...that may be contingent on whether I get the timing belt service done. Mileage wise it isn't due but it's been around 8 years since the last change.
