Re: Thoughts on 2018 Jeep Wrangler?

These always surprise me with how expensive they are for what (I perceive as) what you get. Also seem like chick cars to me frankly... but I have friends who have them and love it, so ymmv

Re: Recommend a daily driver

Why not a super slutty lease for < $200 on a new Jetta or similar? Seriously. You can probably do very well this time of year on something like that.

Lol was going to say this - M2 is right on top of the Audiís trap speed - probably reasonable to assume the M2 is marginally faster from a roll if not merely equivalent.
