Why aren't you driving an M3?
>Motor Trend
"World's single greatest car? Seriously? Yes – the new BMW M3 is unquestionably a contender. Probably no other car combines so many virtues – speed, handling, good looks, roominess, practicality – into one package. Driving the new BMW M3 is an absolutely blissful experience, flooding your brain with dopamine as if you were arriving to courtside seats at the Lakers game with Jennifer Connelly on your arm." -and- "If you put an F1 car and a premium sedan in a blender, the M3 would be the cocktail that pours out. Mmmm, nothing else like it. A toast then: To the BMW M3, the greatest all-around car in the world.
>Jeremy Clarkson
"This [The M3] is the best car, and always will be, and there's no point in ever thinking otherwise.''
>Car and Driver
"A car has got to be pretty spectacular to win over the curmudgeons here at 1585 Eisenhower Place, especially when familiarity sets in over the course of 40,000 miles. But our Sparkling Graphite Metallic M3 did indeed win us over.", and "Based on our experience, the current M3 is the world's all-around best car for the money, although several staffers would have preferred to trade some of the coupe's looks for the added practicality of the sedan.", and "This is the finest car on the market, period."
>Edmunds
"This is the best most complete car in the world. It's actually a bargain for what you get. Wow."

Is it possible that we'll see insurance companies in the US force telematics based insurance on drivers in the near future or just jacking up the price of non telematics based insurance to the point where you'd be paying significantly more to not have your insurance agent looking over your shoulder and monitoring you every time you drive some where? I have a hard time believing this won't happen considering the technology is inexpensive these days and most people are completely okay being spied on everywhere in their daily life if they believe they're getting some sort of benefit out of it. It seems the only thing left is for insurance companies to actually start pushing it on everyone rather than just offering it as an option.

My insurance company offered me a deal where if I installed an app on my phone that would track my driving habits that I'd get a discount on my bill. Knowing I drive perfectly fine I went for it.

Oh, too bad the app is chinkshit garbage and can't fuckin maintain a GPS signal worth shit. So no, Mr Insurance Broker I did not cut through three square miles of city blocks in a solid diagonal line going 60 above the speed limit. Oh, but you say you have to trust the apps data over my claims, despite the very laws of physics being the crux of my argument?

I removed that shit after three days. Fuck.

These things are scams

They say they can only lower your insurance but in reality they just collect your data and use it to warrant raises in your insurance later or deny you reductions overall.

It's just a bullshit ploy to scam you out of actual savings. Unless you drive poke grandma once a week to the church at the end of the block, you aren't going to save any money

not really, no

/o/, I'm looking to upgrade from my Mitsubishi Magna since I'm now earning a semi-decent amount of cash. The Infiniti G37/Skyline 370GT has caught my eye, but before I jump into anything I want to know what the running and maintenance costs would be like.
I live in Australia, so it's an import. I know it shares many parts with the 370Z which is sold here by Nissan, so how much hassle and expense would it be to get replacement parts for this beast? Will most mechanics work on it? I'm prepared for the thirstier engine but if maintenance is going to break the bank I'll have to reconsider.

A swap from mph to kmh. The K stands for K of course. Basically makes your car really fast, before the K swap It took 8 secs for my car to get to 60. Now it takes 8 secs to get my car to 100.

Got my transmission with 0 miles because a fully rebuilt one from Synchrotech for my EG hatch. Service manual says 30k just like the auto which is probably overkill. It's cheaper than a synthetic oil change so I keep up with it. Changed it twice so far.

I haven't had my car long enough to do it more than once. One of my friends does it every 2 oil changes and I may consider doing that just to always feel smooth shifts

Not a S197 but I've had a S550 GT for ~3 years. Before that I had a 4.6L 3 valve GT

Mechanically should be fine as long as it's had basic maintenance (oil changes, fluids are all ok, etc.). The 5.0 is pretty solid motor and Ford puts it into a lot of their cars. As people mentioned the transmission may feel shitty but it works mechanically.

If you can, try getting a 2012 or 2013. 2011 was the first model year of the 5.0 and Ford fixed a few things later on I believe.

Really? My girlfriend (6'1) hasn't complained at all about the interior space and neither has her fat boomer father.
Anyways to answer OP. I had no idea it existed until a little over a week ago. Fell in love with it once I saw one for sale near me for $4k (which I talked down to $3k).
The exterior styling harkens back to classic Americana, nice V8 (which mine ran not so well initially but after a few repairs and tune up is now great), and delivers a pretty smooth ride.
Interior is insanely nice and is still on par with the interior of newer cars today. Big infotainment screen is a huge plus. Loaded with options and accessories pretty advanced for its time (like cooled seats and side curtain air bags).
Unfortunately mine seems to have an issue keeping fluid transmission in (at least I'm pretty sure it's transmission fluid). It was fine 2 days ago when I last drove it but last night when I went out to search for my charger I noticed a large puddle of reddish oil pooled under it near the passenger side. Hoping it's something minor like a line having finally deteriorated and just ripped, bad seal, or gasket and nothing major with the transmission itself. Can't work on it today since there's a tornado warning in my area (for good reason. Wind blowing so hard my neighbor's tree had a large branch fall on his Thunderbird)
Pic related. My M45 (2004)
