    Your Current Car :
    2003 Pontiac Vibe GT 6 Speed Manual

    Color:
    Gloss Black with pinstripe

    Odometer Reads:
    32,000 Miles

    Purchase Price:
    $15,000 (with upside down credit)

    Fixed Problems:
    De nada. No problems...YET!

    Remaining Problems:
    Nope...

    What have you bought for it? (exclude carputer)
    JUST got this car, so not too much...
    Uh, New Shifter
    Floor mats
    Dog mats (for my dog of course!)
    Steering wheel cover
    Some lights under the seats (not installed yet)

    Future Plans:
    Perhaps Ill update the speakers, dont really need to right now.
    Perhaps get an amp...
    Carputer...HA!
    Work on the exhaust.

    Why did you buy it?
    Good deal! I was upside down on a Sunfire with a failing clutch, so it was either pay 1200 for a new clutch, or put that 1200 on a new car. And the wife and I are moving soon SO, the extra space is a bonus. And I just like it.

    What do you like the most about your car?
    Its the newest one, I like the body style, its functional and still a little bit sporty. Can also be used for transporting my dog (funny as hell when he slides on the plastic when the seats are down) or my children when I have some (wonder if they will slide on the plastic to... O.o)

    What do you dislike about your car?
    The clutch is REALLY touchy.

    Previous and other cars:
    1984 Cadillac Sedan Deville
    1988 Buick Electra
    1990 Ford Bronco II
    1996 Chevy Blazer
    1999 Pontiac Sunfire
    2003 Pontiac Vibe GT (current own)

    Possible Future Cars:
    Very content for now, BUT I do want a muscle car. No specifics, just a whole mess of muscle.

    Your Current Car :
    2003 Audi A4 1.8T 5spd



    Color:
    Silver with black leather

    Odometer Reads:
    56,500

    Purchase Price:
    $26,300 (certified pre-owned)

    Fixed Problems:
    - 2 headlights (one right, one left)
    - 1 turn signal (required the whole headlight housing to be replaced, burnt contacts)
    - sticky sunroof (replaced the sun roof switch)
    - factory stereo (one button was peeling, so the dealer gave me a new one!)
    - noisy sunroof operation (just needed some lubing)

    Remaining Problems:
    - small dent on right side rear wheel well (drunk teenager hit it when it was parked in a driveway)

    What have you bought for it? (exclude carputer)
    - gas, gas, and more gas!
    - 2 new rear tires

    Future Plans:
    - car computer (obviously)
    - ECU chip programming
    - Diverter/Blow Off Valve
    - Tint
    - new speakers and an amplifier

    Why did you buy it?
    My 2000 Jetta GLX reached the end of it's warranty and the MAFS was going bad. Also the clutch needed replacement. I figured since I had it 4 years and had some equity built up, time to trade it in. Hello Audi...

    What do you like the most about your car?
    It is very quiet, smooth, and somewhat quick (I think it is slow though). By far the most solid built car I have ever owned. My girlfriend thinks it's sexy. When little stuff breaks (like my headlights and turn signals), the car is very specific with it's errors. It tells me "left front turn signal out" or "right dipped headlamp". "Dipped" is german for "that **** is broke" I guess. LOL

    What do you dislike about your car?
    - It's slow (relatively)
    - Obvious issues with headlights and any type of bulb contained therein
    - The dent from the drunk driver
    - The need to use 91 octane gas

    Previous and other cars:
    In order:
    1. 1968 VW Bug (fully custom everything, it rocked!)
    2. 1990 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX

    5. 1991 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX

    7. 2000 VW Jetta GLX

    Possible Future Cars:

    Audi RS4 or RS6 (after I win the lotto, LOL)
