70% agree

T1 is better at some things and its easier to get great sound out of. but he6 scales higher and is the better phone when properly amped

working on it.

 

ive ruled out the altima. pretty nice car especially when loaded and probably good for commuting. but too common and too many on the street and ive read about issues with the cvt and reliability issues in general, plus the fact that it has a cvt kinda concerns me.

 

maybe camaro still not sure.

 

looking at BRZ and Miata, i really want a miata but its a small car.

 

also still considering mercedes cla, but seems like it would be a little too expensive, especially if i add necessities like heated seats and the xenons. (and maybe moonroof + sports package)

 

oh and then theres the nissan 370z

I know they're small, but I can highly recommend the Miata!! I sold mine to upgrade to the RX-8 GT which I love still, but we regularly miss the little Miata (or MX-5 as it's called here)

I own a 2013 Altime 3.5 SL and have to say it is an awesome car.  Loads of power, very smooth (CVT) with no slip and impressively comfortable seats and responsive steering and brakes.  The stereo is also very nice sounding and of course remote start is great on cold days.  One strange thing about it though is the seat heaters either burn your ass and puts out nothing to your back or burns your back and freezes your ass depending on if the switch is in the high or low position.  The switch indicates high and low as like hot or warm but i think whoever wired mine took it too literally.

If you think heated seats are a requirement where in Chicago, you don't wanna live where I do (we reached -47 Celsius with windchill on Christmas day).

it got that cold with wind chill here as well about 2 weeks ago, of course thats pretty rare for us.

 

we've been at 0 Fahrenheit / -17 Celsius for like the past couple weeks though, usually January is very cold in Chicago :confused_face:

Jesus, didn't realize it got that cold anywhere else (albeit we reach those temperatures about 5 times a year, but still...).
