irrballsac I've been in the market for a few weeks now for a new vehicle too. I got a wild hair an sold my motorcycle and s-10. Now I've been bumming rides and sitting on cash.

Alot of my ideas have been posted on here. I've contemplated going for 06+ Sti personally. That, and I've looked at tons of Audi quattros. If i were to get another truck it would HAVE to be extended cab, 5 speed, and 4x4. Apparently this is too much to ask for unless I want a huge truck. Which I don't. I used to drive my civic Si in basically ANY condition (even hitting 145 in the dead of the night coming from Chicago to visit my dad in MN around christmas a few years back) I would like a BMW 325xi. Awd or bust. Same with wanting the quattros. My big thing is I DON'T want an automatic whatsoever. Damn lazy people not knowing how to drive a stick makes the selection few and far between.

Best of luck to you though.

I have pulled out so many subies, audis and other small cars/trucks that it isnt even funny..... usually in deep snow while its dumping going up or down mountain passes...
Not going to lie, that is a fine piece of Japanese machinery.

I think everyone would buy one of those for $5K
Yeah, but most people just don't care or know what they get from a car at that price.

Idk, I think I'm going to wait until the summer and save up some more money for a ride. From the beginning of this thread, I said I'm in no rush to buy. This is mostly for research and learning about different models I'm interested in, and it has been pretty interesting imo. And I really don't think I'll wreck, I'm a pretty good driver. My friend who just got his license suspended for chasing a squirrel down the road with weed in the car.... that's a different story.

Normally the best way if using pics that are off of your computer is to use a website like imgur: the simple image sharer to upload your pics. Once uploaded all you do is copy the direct link and then use the IMG button provided above the reply box. Since you have already attached them to the forums we can just use that URL to post the pictures this time. Another tip is to remember that imgur will not resize you pics (I use the google program Picasa to resize multiple photos easily) , so take that into consideration before posting a monster photo.

Argo How do u get the picture to sho in the post and not just the link? Mine used to do it automatically with manage attachments.... Now it's just the links tha I see.

This is my second one that's almost identical to the first. First was silver with a tonaeu and quad cab, it got stolen at 3.5 years 100k miles... No issues at all. I had performance mods on it though, it ran low to mid 13s quarter mile times....

I definitely want AWD , a sunroof, heated leather seats, and decent mpg as gas is going to cost five bucks a gallon this summer.

Plus I want a reliable and easily maintained car, since I plan on getting 5-10 years out of it.

that is one tank of a truck man. nice front plate bumper!

i dunno, i absolutely love my 4cyl tacoma. Having the d4d diesel from the hilux would be cool, but i dont think i would really need it or make good use of it.

i have a stack of goodies sitting around for my beloved truck. i have a 2.5" lift, 33" bfg ATs, a cb set up, and im getting sliders made. ill have a totaly different truck in 3 months once every thing comes together

first season with the 4x4 and there hasn't been much snow this year at all so no real chances to pull people out, but im sure if i had it last year i would have an impressive list of tows. hell i passed my 2 or 3 slide offs just in boise every time it snowed, driving up to McCall im sure there would be tons of smaller cars stuck

That gets 20mpg.... I'm guessing it's a diesel?
