Re: What stocks are you invested in?

What did you buy TSLA at?

I bought back at $24.xx sold some at $36.xx something.

Thinking of buying back some if it goes for a dip sometime soon. Have my eye on it again.

Yea most of the dealers who sell them don't know squat. They probably won't even know what rates to recommend.

Most non custom rates from other manufactures are also on the soft side.

Re: You may think it is ugly and not worthy, but this is one bad ride!!!

Negative, it does weight less than an E46 M3. It's closer to the e36 m3's weight.

1M coupe: 3,284 lb (1,490kg)
E46 M3 Coupe: 3,415 lb (1,549 kg)
E36 M3 Coupe: 3,219 lb (1,460 kg)
