Looks like a M5 to me.  E39.  E46 is a 3 Series.

E39 M5

 

Not easy to arrange this kind of purchase while I'm using extremely spotty satellite internet and no phone service in the middle of the Saudi Arabian desert about 30 km from Iraq (no, not military). Hopefully it will all come together so I can surprise my father on Christmas :)

I recently got this.  It's a 2013 Kia Optima SXL.

Mmm you can get really good deals on them right now? I heard they were stopping production... is that all kias or just certain models?

Finally some snow on the West Coast. Been driving the hell out of my Scooby since ytd and hasn't let me down... more than once biggrin.gif

 

Even if you have AWD, it doesn't really create an advantage over other cars without AWD while braking. Engine braking, yes, just simple braking, no. Snow Tires> all

 

I wish I could've videotaped my car hooning in covered parking lots biggrin.gif

New insanity. Actually it's very tame (too tame?), no insanity about it. Here's a question, do you want a supercar to be so; reliable, driveable, efficient (I'm getting ~24MPG while puttering around at posted speeds), and well-mannered? I've been chatting back and forth with Chris Harris (one of the Drive reviewers), and I'm not sure. What I can say is, from an engineering perspective, it's unmatched. Plus, it's a lot of fun with TC off. biggrin.gif

I don't want that kind of car to be tame at all. I want it to scare me every time I drive it and there isn't an unmodified super car out there that can do that for me (though I've only driven a few... I'm just extrapolating here). I imagine the konigsegg Agera r might fit the bill, but I guess they consider that a "hyper car." Now driving around a track at speed is a different t story. Driving the 458, it became clear quickly that it was too much car for my skill level and could have bitten me in the ass a few times if it weren't for the stability control system.

Hahaha talking to THE Chris Harris. Who's next? Clarkson? Be sure to avoid James May. One day... Maybe I'll buy one second hand biggrin.gif I still have a looong way to go in my life.

 

Who's pumped for another season of Top Gear? I certainly am!

post #928 of 1123
Actually... I do talk with Mr May, we Tweet back and forth a lot. redface.gif He's the one who talked me into the 12C, and he recently bought one himself. I talked before about how tame it is, but that was before I went to the track with it. Now I want to recant what I said before, it's properly crazy when you turn it loose. Barking mad, really.


Edit: Yeah, TG is a staple for me, like eating and breathing.

^^^Yea it was good, I actually kinda like Chris Harris' vid on it better though. I thought that Bentley rally piece was really good/insane
