Well here's my old car I sold just about a year ago, 2001 Jeep Cherokee Classic.

And the new ride, 2009 Nissan Pathfinder. Both were stock, no add ons. Rather spend that money on the hobby..

Also a 2005 Ford Focus the wife uses.

It is a '97 Avalon.. hee.. so basically is a slightly bigger Camry.. but the same thing... (similar powertrain, etc.)

It is still very reliable.. starts every time.. !!

Same Taurus I had when this thread began. Not very exciting, but it is quiet and comfortable to and from work :-)

BMW starts the new model year after the summer factory holidays in September. If there are major changes, it happens in September.
Mine was built 23rd September and features the changes for 2010. Thus model 2010.

2008 Chevy HHR SS with Stage 1 turbo upgrade. Pretty quick, handles like a dream and will fit quite a few planes!

sweet, didnt realise that (obviously) i might be working at BMW in Birmingham (UK) soon, not sure what models they make there though..

turns out they just make 2.0 engines... not sure if they fit them there as well...

No fitting there.

68 Chevelle Malibu with 4 bolt main 350, aprox 400 horse. I'm the third owner and I have the original bill of sale. 1st owner paid $3400 out the door in 68. Only mods are 350 engine (it came with a 307), disc brake conversion, and I added Vintage Air.[img][/img]

Haha unlucky, X5's and Z4's are made in the USA, the M cars are made in Germany.

And the Mini engines suck, can't believe BMW would put out such a product...

Thats not correct.
The only BMW models produced in the U.S. (Spartanburg) are the X5 and the X6. The current Z4 is made in Germany (Regensburg) again. Gladly.
