    I'm not tryingto make fun you But yeh, some insurance companies flatly refuse to insure a teenager for just statistical analysis. Data shows that lots of teens with m3s end up crashing them; same for the MKIV supras

    What about the 350z, RX8 and G35

    Well if you guys had enough money to get a older M3, would you rather buy a 350z, a RX-8, a G35, a Crossfire, (or whatever else) or stick with the older m3?

    Bah. Dont buy used, buy slightly new.

    Whether its an old lady driving 2 miles a month, or a teen driving 100+MPh everyday on 90 degree turns, it all boils down to... time on the car.

    Miles and time are the enemies are they not?

    If you MUST have a certain car and the only way to afford it is go back more than 8 years on the model. You arent supposed to buy it. Capitalism has it set that way, every car thats within yer tax bracket stays there as the years go buy. YOu wont see someone driving a 2003 Focus and then driving a 1980 Mercedes.

    We all buy what we can afford, if you cant, u aint supposed to have it.

    As for insurance, **** EM. Find the cheapest county in yer state, and set up a PO box there and register yer car there. Then if yer a teen, LIE and put it under yer parents name. Insurance is the root of all evil. And not just car insurance. Paying money for something you dont get. Thats just great. Since when do yu goto Wal MArt (shudder) pay $200 and then walk out with nothing. INsurance is bull**** but its a must i guess. I wont talk about economics but I hate paying $ for nothing.
