Ok, so I am down to two cars now... i really wanna pull the trigger on any one of these but I am waiting first to hear from Western and for my cafe to sell. But if one of the two happens for the better... I will go ahead and purchase whichever one i feel more comfortable in.

1) BMW M6 - 2006

Oh... my lamborghini of course! (I can't bring the Bimmer.... its only a 2006-- waaaay too old of a car for south Florida).

Now, if ellipedo & Tex really do have those types of cars...... that's awesome... people are going to mistake you for doctors if you get out of them wearing your white med student coat!

Back to my own reality.... I'm hoping my totally awesome 94 civic will hold out.... 1. to make a drive half way across the country to get to med school, and 2. the first two years...

... maybe by 3rd year I can upgrade... to a 2001 Civic! :)

that m6 is like 2 years tuition and that's including fricking living loans.

I want a hybrid of some type (not that I can afford a new car anytime soon). Every time I drive by a gas station, I die a little on the inside. $4/gallon is just too much.

$65K my friend, used of course. Thats a whole years worth of tuition and living expense at Western. It's insane but I want it, and i'm insane. Aren't you a car fanatic too?

Sexy! I still have the 04 edition VW R32... Blue, 6spd, and leather seats (only option available). I love that car, its in VW right now because the AWD is not working. I am letting my little brother use it and he's already been in 3 accidents since he started driving it. :(

The SL500 i was driving for a while till i got T-boned... now it sits in the garage most of the time. Love the ride, doesn't have the thrill of the M6 and SL55, heck, even the R32. :) The black rims were added because of the accident.

n20011881_31924296_3514.jpg


Heres the M5 (before it got totaled) and the R32. My little brother is the one in the Red, i think i'm inside my fiances house.

Don't buy the BMW M6 if your going to Harlem. The half-life for a car like that in that area is about 90 minutes.

2002 toyota camry XLE. I am worried about the payments though...$305 a month + another $60 in insurance. Maybe it would be best to sell and get a beater?

What if I just like fast cars?

I don't know, I can see how one gets attracted to fast luxury cars. I myself am a fan to a degree. That being said, rolling around town in a flashy expensive car can be seen as just straight up obnoxious. Not so much because they are fast or of quality, but because they are used as elitist status symbols. It may be true that you simply enjoy fast, well engineered vehicles, but it is hard for others to see you in one and not think you are just showing off.

Why should it matter what others think? If the dude likes fast cars that look exotic let him enjoy it.

$305 + $60 per month is not that much to pay for a car. You don't need to be living like a bum or driving a POS while in school. Plus you're going to need reliable transportation in your 3rd and 4th year when you go do rotations.

What if I just like fast cars?

I can appreciate that. I like fast cars as well, I just don't like them overly flashy. I live on a ranch, so I've got a use for my big truck. But, I suppose if I lived in a more suburban area I might would drive a car. I actually was looking at the Audi S4 before I got my truck, however it just wasn't practical for me. I like that it's fast, classy and not overly flashy. A Viper though? To me that just screams D-bag. (Unless you race it on a track...SCCA type thing.)

And be careful once you get into practice too. I know around here it's frowned upon for physicians to drive flashy cars, etc. The last thing you want is for the public and for patients to think you're overpaid. A plastic surgeon around here just bought a Maserati and I don't think his partners were too thrilled about it....

hybrids....several studies showed that over the lifetime of the car, a Prius produces more CO2 than a Hummer. This is due to the manufacturing of the battery and extraction of Sulfur (somewhere in ON, Canada), to transport it to Japan, and then moving the whole car to the US. I don't know about the Vue, since it's made in the US. However, the CO2 costs to produce the battery are really high. I was very surprised myself to learn this.
The best eco-friendly option out there is a nice turbo diesel IMO.
Plus with a hybrid you cry when something goes wrong...only the dealership can work on it.

I have been building cars since I was a kid. I love cars! My first ride was a 02 wrx and I put a 2.5l sti block into it. Dodge viper flashy? I see how people may see it that way, I love the simplicity of the car and the power, v10 8.3l 500hp! I don't think its flashy. SL55 is flashy. M6 is too but I love the small v10 with 507hp stock. Bmw is more of a drivers car, I would love to get it in 6sp but they are hard to find, I guess smgiii it is. The e60 m5 is nice too spazzz great car I like the coupe better, I don't think the e60m5 looks as nice as the e39 m5.

I have family members that own both (BMW and Mercedes) and I must say that I do enjoy driving the Mercedes more. It's my grandpa's, and it has that crazy sport-tronic (I have no idea if that is the right term) transmission where you can go from automatic to manual (minus the clutch of course), and its a smooth little car. However, I think I'd take the M6 just because I love M3, M4, and M6s!!

The a beauty of a car like an S series Audi or an M series BMW is that slight exterior modifications and different badging is all that distinguish them from an "average" Audi or BMW. For those less car savvy, they appear to be just really nice cars, not the insanely expensive beasts they really are.

I might see things differently as I grew up in an area where, if a doctor buys a Viper or a Maserati, people hear about it. I think the general consensus around here is that flashy physicians are bad for business.

But hey, if cars are your passion, do your thing. Just do the rest of us a favor and save the exotics for the weekend...drive a Honda to work. :laugh:

That looks like a '01, Tex. I'm bringing one of the same (SE7) I think. I can't stand the new square LR body styles - the older "safari" style Disco IIs are the way to go. Classic and capable, like Jeep Wranglers. :thumbup:
Mine is an '02. It is pretty sweet, but there always seems to be something "little" that needs to be fixed. The car pictured is not mine. Just one I found online. I don't really have one of mine, but its the same general idea.
