Here is my feeling on fancy cars:

Yesterday I drove a friend's Merc slk 350 convertible. Goes great looks good..blah, blah, blah.

However I drove out of town before I pulled over and put the top down because I felt like a pathetic middle aged man having a mid life crisis in that damn thing...and that is exactly what I looked like.

The beauty of BMW is that you get a fantastic performance car with a modest body. You don't look like a wanker driving a BMW, no matter what age you are.

The only convertible car I would be comfortable in would be a pre-70's Mustang.

I'm with you...I saw an Aventador a few weeks ago. I literally followed the guy for about 20 blocks. I haven't been this excited about a Lamborghini since the Countach or Diablo.

The Aventador is just a beautiful car. I would give a damn what people that of me if they saw me driving it.

I'm in my 20's so, I would look like a rich kid.

Thats fine by me haha...

You have a seriously bent point of view.

Typical of your average BMW owner. "Everyone thinks I'm the boss because I drive a 320i"

aventador is meh.

Give me an E30 M3 any day. It might not be as fast, but it's got a lot of the personality that the aventador lacks. It just has more soul.

Trust me guys, I know exotic cars. I've unlocked all the cars in every Forza, and GT 5. I'm something of an expert on the subject.

I should have been more specific and said top of the line BMWs, M's etc. I am fully aware that my liitle car is not in this league. Unlike you and your super car the....what is it you drive? A 10 year old what?

Don't like the new lip-less wheel trend going on right now.

You have a terrible choice in colors for cars.

Why, it's terrible at being green and terrible at being blue. It's less desirable than silver.

I know children that have better control than you of their urges to be petty and hurtful for no reason.

What are you talking about, it's something that's always perplexed me. Terrible automobile colors.


If forks had only 1 prong, I would say it needs atleast 3 preferably 4... I'm not going to give it nice compliments just because somebody put it into production.
