All.....clearly, I never followed the Maxima lineage. Matter of fact, I think I was only in one once a few years ago...driving a rental. It seemed nice enough.
gogi....I know that Scion came out with a big splash. But, I have yet to see any of their newer offerings on the road. As mentioned, my son pointed out the BRZ to me. He's go the hots for one. Not sure he's got the means at this stage, though. He's saving up for a house. His GF is bugging him for a ring. If/when that happens, he's looking at minivans in pretty short order.
Trade market is strong. Pulling the trigger on the S4 was predicated on me kicking in some money for the SO. That meant getting decent $$$$ for the Accord. And, for her to sell her '03 Subie Outback, which she's putting in for some minor repairs (CV joints, A/C check and charge) before hitting the newspaper ads.
May have another Sales story regarding selling the Subaru shortly. I have to get a good detail on it, after it comes back from the shop with a clean bill of health. So, it will be a few weeks, yet.
Again, hope you stick around.

I hope all of you are enjoying your 4th at home, grilling and enjoyed the day. I still haven't placed the 330 up for sale yet, however, I have decided that I wont be getting another sedan even though the RS4 is an incredible car, since my partners next car will be a sedan, this leaves me to get the car I have wanted for a while, a NSX. Talk about a car that hold it's value..... Now time to get get outside and clean the grill, the weather people are calling for rain here in the valley of the sun... A nice change from the 111 degrees we have been having.

Don't understand why you can't have multiple sedans in a family setting? Why not have the partner get the coupe or convert? I will say the "downgrade?" to the NSx could not be a better more exotic pick. Make sure you get the manual because I think the auto was slower and had less hp(maybe its just my bias towards stick, but I think this may be true). Love the NSx - the end of it coincidently ended Acura as a cheap lux sport brand it was previously known- now its just Hondas Buick line. Better pick one quick before Jerry stienfield and jay Leno come swoop one up.

Being a armchair quarterback is easy to do, however, when you don't have all the facts one ends of washing egg off ones face. If it was easy as you say it would be done. We have a 3 car garage, one bay is taken up by my oldest hobby (love), motorcycles, I have some classic's, old school and new school bikes (6 total). So this leaves two bay open, before selling the 328, that was sitting outside, while the 330 was in the garage, the other bay belongs to what Rick drives. I travel for work, I'm on the road more then I am home, so to have multi sedans was not a good use of space. The 328 had 4500 miles on it (two trips to San Diego in it) and was bought back in Oct-2011, when I was home and the weather was good (which was most of the time) I would ride one of the bikes. So with the sale of both BMW's this will give me enough cash to buy the NSX that I want, the extra money would go to Rick and whatever he wants. We are all happy and the driveway is not cluttered with cars.

When you find that minty fresh low mileage NSX, you know, after months of research, test drives, and a PPI, let me know the name and phone number of the owner before you buy it.
I'll make sure it's a good one for you - just for your peace of mind...

Whatever floats your boat- I just remember the past posts saying you love the super s4 rs4, was selling the new 328 for it. NSx great pick, either way. Make sure you run it by fed law, guy has had good luck with m3s and Porsches. Rick should be happy - NSx in the 3rd bay, exotic in, 328 out-. Question - why not a hybrid? Seems like plenty of toys already, maybe thow a escape hybrid or comp in the mix and save the planet for trips to stop and shop.
