Hey guys!

 

Thought it would be interesting to see what everyone here on BC drove!

 

So, I absolutely love my car. Its my daily driver but also super fun on back roads. The type of car I drive has a huge modding community and I plan on doing a tun beginning of next year.

 

What do you all drive? Do you love it, hate it, wish it would just die already? Post away! Looking forward to seeing what everyone has!

 

Annddd without further ado, here is my 2015 VW MK7 GTI!

@Viper Subaru makes a solid product! Was close to getting a BRZ back when I bought my GTI.

@Aura boo Honda! I kid I kid. The civic SI was in the running when I got my GTI as well. My Dad's civic has been running for years! 01 with I think over 300K on it now.

@DeimosChaos,

Love that GTI! There are some tire marks — did you try to do a doughnut? :P Curiously, why didn't you get a BRZ — that's a wonderful beginner's track car.

Nobody tries to cut me off in traffic. They are somewhat scared I will round them up with the bull bar...

@bwv - thanks!! I love it!
When I test drove the GTI I fell in love with it. Quality interior, really nice just overall. The biggest thing though was I wanted the 4 doors. I felt like I would be disappointed with a 2 door. I was coming from a 2 door truck and wasn't really wanting to get another 2 door vehicle. And no I didn't do donuts. Haha

@condobloke - that is an awesome truck! Looks like a tank!

My main drive is a 2005 Subaru Baja with just over 170k miles on it. I love it! Don't see ever getting rid of it. I don't have any pictures of it right now..

Yeah, I can understand. That's why VW killed the two-door GTI...

I searched for a year and found the model I wanted.  A pre- computer controlled one with good gas mileage and handling.  A 1995 BMW 525i.  Very solid in all aspects.  Managed to keep it damage free and original 190K mileage.  Has all the M5 options except the motor and has been free of any major failures, the worst being a new battery and a started motor.

My old mans car which he says is mine when he bites the bullet! Very hard to clean. 57 ford customline.

it also pushes something like 350 HP. Everything you see was hand crafted. Also the galaxy was the one that the beattles toured australia in in the 60's or 70's i cant remember because i wasnt born then!

Rocking a 2015 Subaru Crosstrek in Orange, thing runs awesome, have taken it halfway across the US and down the East Coast a few times. No issues thus far and great gas mileage, I have put all 29,000 miles on it and hope to have it until it dies hopefully not till 250,000+ miles.
