      Brings back a lot of memories for me, bought one of these Trophy Jettas(it's not a GLI in name btw) and owned it for a few years, had a lot of fun in that car.

      Been here as long as you bud. I know a lot of you love the financial lounge, but it does still seem to be the "car" lounge according to the title.
      Here's an exciting car from BAT as per the thread. Probably my favourite "baby Ferrari"

      Never understood why the 348 got such a bad rap.

      That passenger side fog light looks out of place though...

      The design is incredible, but its rep of reliability is awful like most Ferraris of its vintage. I'm really curious though, I strongly believe in the "cars don't like sitting" theory, and basically thats all they did. I wonder if things would have been different if they got wailed on at least weekly.

      Ferraris especially don't like sitting. Every Ferrari owner I know puts less than 1000 miles on it every year. Unless it is a collector piece (like an F40), like why?

      Might have just become that self fulfilling prophecy.
      I don't want to drive my Ferrari because it always breaks when I drive it, but it always breaks when it's driven because it sits for so long between drives. People need to give it that Hail Mary and get through that hump of driving it, replacing ****, and then ending up with a car that is prepared to keep going.

      You need to drive it. Sure it will be expensive at first bit it will become much more reasonable with time.
      At least according to the Ferrari owners I know.

      I absolutely love yellow cars... if they're the right body style. The example I use is the Fahrenheit VWs. The Jetta should've been orange and the GTI yellow and to me neither looks nearly as good the way they made them. MkIII GTIs (like my '97) looked their absolute best in yellow. 2nd generation Preludes and 993s look their best in yellow too. A yellow Toyota MR2? Bleah!

      Funnily enough, I'm not a big fan of most yellow Beetles (special editions notwithstanding). Late Karmann Ghias on the other hand...

      The yellow 993 is sex on wheels. I especially love the "basket handle" on the early cars. If I had the means I'd have a 993.

      CSB warning - my dad had a 355GTS for 15 years. He bought it with maybe 19k on it, in 2005. He sold it last year with over 50k miles. It was the highest mileage 355 on the market and assessing the value of the car was difficult with the mileage+targa+yellow color. There were some big scheduled maintenance bills but nothing broke or stranded the car. Ultimately the 3yr major service interval was just too expensive to justify the car - he drove it enough to hit the mileage limit for belt changes. But I completely agree that the car was healthier for having been used and tracked. The next owner got a car with all the 355 issues solved: headers, valve guides, cat, belts, etc.

      997.2 is another option but with the interiors being pretty similar to our cars, it won't feel like as much as a different car than I'd like.

      I actually prefer the 987.2 to the 997.2, though I will cede that the 997.2 interior is of much higher quality than the 987.2 and that the 997.2 is obviously faster, unless you are comparing a base 997.2 to a Cayman R. The only 997 that I'd actually prefer over a 987.2 would be a GT3, either a .1 with the black interior trim (I HATE the silver) or a .2. There's a higher chance of the COVID-19 gong show ending in the next month than me being able to afford a 997 GT3 so I'll remain content with what I've got.

      I would love a 997.2 C4S 6MT to live alongside my 987.2, but again, not going to happen.

      That actually is a CSB though. I can't imagine the fun that was had.
