I have a lot of questions and thoughts but in the end I'm just happy I live in a country where we have the freedoms to do nearly any generally benign activity we like and may these people find the good fortune of the one person that's been waiting for a factory fresh Marauder to show up for sale at any price and they rush in to snap it up, if for nothing more than helping the sellers with their bills and hey, Marauder is a bonus.

I'm looking for a "fast" saloon as well... but its a tall task.

Harder than it seems, but I'm kinda picky.

It's a cool car, I'll give you that... but I don't like it enough to shell put that kind of coin. It's like $15k more than the ideal M3. I've already had one of those, and it's tempting to go back, but I don't think I can do it.

It doesn't help that they lease like ****... I could lease a 911 for less money.

I've got some cash to play with, but I'm really conflicted with my choice.

Marauder sounds like a perfect choice then.

The only reason why the car currently has 62 miles on its odometer is because it originally came from the dealer with three miles on the clock, and the remaining 59, Doug claims, are from him simply driving the car on blocks.

Doug says the reason why he drove the car with its rear wheels spinning in the air is that he wanted to ensure that the transmission and rear differential received proper lubrication (most likely to prevent corrosion and to avoid cracked seals). He says, with the car up on jacks, he used to periodically move the shifter through all of its “gears,” and also let the engine lubricate itself as he “drove” without actually moving.
I just don't get this.

Difficult to watch. How long of a video do you need to say you hydrolocked the engine and need a new one?

He should go the other way. Lease a fleet of Kia's and drive a different one every day of the year.

I just sold the Camaro.

I drove it a whopping 3-400 miles since March. Figured it was time to just let go. It'll only get driven less when the baby comes. It just had a really nice exhaust and some meaty tires.

If they're asking $40K, and the sticker was $34K, I wonder if they are even going to make their money back?

They'll make their money back barely, but it says they bought it as an investment, not a way to come out even on the other side.

Obviously, anyone that invested money back in the early 2000s should have invested in Apple, Google, or Amazon stock, but hell, gold, index fund, anything would have been a better investment.

Could have stuck it under their mattress and come out even.

I almost feel bad for them. You know he convinced her that the car was going to go up crazy in value. So not only will they not make much or any money, but they also had to give up their garage for all this time.
