Rejoining the Oppo Lexus Club Rejoining the Oppo Lexus Club

Agreement in principle with a dealer out of state on a 2011 GS350 in Smokey Granite Mica. About 100k on the clock and 12k out the door. Inspection scheduled at the local Lexus dealer on Monday. Looks identical to the one below:

When buying older, does mileage trump age or age trump mileage?

Interested to hear Oppo’s take on this. For reference, I’ve been considering reducing debt and the first place to start would be moving on from my S3. Love the car, not the payment :).

Of Car-Buying Ideas (IS300 Advice) Of Car-Buying Ideas (IS300 Advice)

As a new dad, I’ve started taking a bit of a harder look at my family’s budget. We aren’t close to being tight or anything, but at the same time increased monthly consumables costs coupled with daycare costs and reduced income by way of health insurance for the baby and a dependent care savings account are making…

Forza Horizon Car Pass - 1/17/19 Forza Horizon Car Pass - 1/17/19

Mildly excited for the cars released today - the Porsche 911 Carrera S (992) and 1993 Porsche 968 Turbo S. I’ll be looking forward to hooning these tonight when I get home.

Moar Supra Hot Takes Moar Supra Hot Takes

Like most of you, I’ve been waiting to see what Toyota actually does with the reincarnation of the Supra nameplate and, with the final unveiling, I’m actually rather pleased.

Paging Miss Mercedes

There’s a Smart ForTwo dealer display for sale on BaT. I think you should make it yours :)

Audi Sport Performance Drive

Yesterday I had the awesome experience of participating in the Audi Sport Performance Drive. It’s a free event that provides instructed time behind the wheel of Audi Sport R/RS cars at either Atlanta Motorsports Park in Dawsonville, GA or Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, IL. I’ve been on the waitlist for months, but…

Unnecessary Porsche Shopping Unnecessary Porsche Shopping

Hello Oppos (or is that Obbos now?) Like many of you, I engage in unnecessary car shopping and since selling my BRZ last year for the S3, have been longing for the best of both worlds – a great DD like the S3 and something small and sporty. Since I already have the S3 and, while it’s awesome, I need the small and…

Didn't Know These Were a Thing

On my commute in a few minutes ago, I saw a white BMW Gran Coupe up ahead. It looked a little lower and squatter with fatter tires than a typical one, so I figured it might be a M6. Well, I was wrong.

How Loudly Should I Complain?

As I posted up a couple weeks ago, we bought my wife a new car from out of state. It was a 2017 model and was a factory demonstrator for an area Kia representative, never privately titled, under 16k miles when we bought it.

New Wifey-Mobile

After much help from fellow Oppos about the process of totaling a car and then working with the insurance company on a settlement, we’ve finally settled and have found a replacement for her poor 2012 Rogue.

Insurance Oppos - Finally a Verdict

Three weeks (!) ago, I posted asking you guys to educate me on the process of totaling out a car. Lots of great insight, so thank you all for that.

Picked out new shoes for the S3

Kinja hates me and won’t let me upload or link pictures, so here’s a URL, lol:

Another Forza 7 Gripe

A couple weeks ago I complained that Forza 7 wasn’t very good. Thanks to the awesomeness of fellow Oppos, many of my problems were correctable within various menu options. Now, I have another complaint, but am not sure how to correct it.

Insurance Oppos - Learn me on totaling out a car

My wife was rear-ended in her Nissan Rogue last week by a young girl (supposedly not texting) in a Camry. The Camry definitely looked like toast and had to be pushed from the scene, but the Rogue was damaged, but driveable. My wife took it to a bodyshop that day who went ahead and provided a quote for repairs of…

Hot Take - Forza 7 isn't very good

Full disclosure: Turn 10 wanted me to review this game so badly, they got me hooked on Forza 6 and FH3, so I paid my own money to Wally World for a pre-ordered copy. I received my copy of the Ultimate Edition on Friday night and spent a little bit of time playing it this weekend.

We Bought a Thing

Would love to post a picture, but since Kinja hates me, I can’t. Let me try:

Talk to me about the Mk7 Golf R and Audi S3

Posted up on Friday that I’m currently kicking around some ideas for something a little more practical, and was considering stuff at multiple price points. My wife and I took some time out on Saturday to look at a few examples of the cars on the list, with the Golf R being the favorite of the day.
