Nice choice...If the car has an FSI motor keep an eye on the fuel pump cam follower (if it has TSI, you are fine). If you want some OEM fun, slap on a k04 turbo, 3 inch exhaust and software upgrade...we are talking about near 300whp and OEM reliability. Try going on fourtitude (audi forum) you can find deals on roof rack.

Last winter I was driving a 2005 SRT4 Neon ACR edition with BALD summer tires to the mountains. Definitely NOT a smart idea but I didn't have funds for winter tires lol.

Luckily I sold that car and now I'm driving this...

4 wheel drive, all season tires, cannot wait!!! Only thing that sucks is the rear seats don't fold down, will be needing a roof rack probably.

Evo looks great. Do you have the funds for winter tires this year? They will blow your all seasons out of the water. Look on craigslist. Honestly some of the best money I ever spent on my WRX.

I use this now:

And plan to have this in a number of years from now for the desert and the slopes:




Did want a Toyota Taco or maybe a Colorado but the mpg on the smaller trucks(I guess they're midsized now) isn't very different so I asked myself why not go for more capability?

I'm runnin' a 2011 Dodge Ram 1500 with the 5.7 Hemi. Its 4x4. Great in snow and supports my other habits with towing a boat and hauling my bike around.

I am having a real struggle with this debate as well.

1. my '99 Civic SI performs extremely well in snow, has relatively low miles, is EXTREMELY rare (try to buy one), and has lost very little value over time. It's only caveat, why I'm looking at a truck is I need trailworthiness for trailhead access.

2. I drive 30 miles each way to work everyday, and further than that on my days off, so the mileage adds up quick.

3. Does the slight advantage in the toyo mpg worth it for all these miles over an f-150? I do like the f-150 alot. What about a 4cyl toyo? Do they even have that in 4wd?

4. Should I crush my truck dreams because of all these miles, drive my SI into the ground and just get another lil 2wd wonder with snowtires - fuck I'd go hybrid?

decisions...

Don't know your budget, but there is a new turbo 6 cyl edition of the F150 that really helps with gas mileage, but you get all the perks of the 1/2 ton pickup.

Oh, right. Their new "eco-boost" engine. That thing is pretty rad
Snowklinger: My ideal combo as far as vehicles go is: F-150 and a motorcycle. Motorcycle will be my awesome, fun MPG ride and the truck will be used for trips to the desert, mx track when I get a dirtbike, mountains, trips to home depot, etc. The moto I want should be $8,000 out the door or I could go with a 250cc sport bike and it'll be around $5,000 out the door for a 70-something mpg ride. For me, I'm going with the smallest engine for the truck since I'm not going to be hauling/carrying a shit-ton for work or anything. A 4x4 2.7L, 4-speed auto is 18/21 and a 4x4 F-150 with 3.7L engine(6-speed auto) is 16/21.
