    Nissan Rogue

    So, I have been looking at a Nissan Rogue with one of my friends (he is buying it) and we are trying to determine the difference in the Sport and the regular model. Does anyone have any experience driving both models? We came across this https://www.dwnissan.com/difference-between-the-2018-rogue-and-rogue-sport but it is from an actual dealership. You never know what you can trust from a dealership website. Anyone that has driven both, please let us know the major difference and if it is worth the price.

    Car price value history

    I too would like to see a chart of specific car values over time. This would prove to be a great website.

    2017 Kia Forte S

    I agree with this. Another set of rims would make it look great.

    Motorcycle Racing

    Does anyone get into motorcycle racing? A friend of mine is looking at getting a bike and I have been watching some of the shows on TV lately. Some of the 2018 Honda bikes here are pretty awesome - https://www.lejeunemotorsports.com/inventory/v1/Current/Honda/Motorcycle. Do you know anywhere where I can discuss motorcycles or motorcycle racing?

    Charger r/t or Cadillac CTS V

    Here is some pricing information I found on the Charger R/T - http://www.performancecdjr.com/vehicles.cfm/make/dodge/model/charger/ You can definitely find one on Craigslist for about half the price of a newer one, but, be aware of the "lack of maintenance" from those selling on Craigslist.

    Need a new vehicle no clue what to choose

    I would go with the Honda since they do last longer. If you aren't taking super long trips every week for work, the gas mileage shouldn't be an issue. Here is a link to a seller I know has great deals on hondas https://www.lejeunehondacars.com

    Kids car or baby stroller

    What I have seen people do in the past is attach a clip on battery-powered fan to the side of a baby stroller to keep their child cool.

    Nintendo Switch

    Can you guys find one of these? My son wants one so bad, but I cannot seem to find them anywhere. WalMart and Target have been out of stock in my town since they came out. Any advice?

    Best Laptops?

    I too would like to know the answer to this. I assume Apple is good? I'm not sure.
  12. I recently saw an SUV that was "wrapped" with a business logo and pictures from a business. You can see it here if you click over on the Instagram photos (it is the third one) - I think this vehicle is a Denali, Yukon or Suburban, but I am not certain. That really doesn't matter. What does matter is figuring out how much it costs to have something like this done for a local business that wants to advertise. I know it is very cheap to get some magnetic signs for the side of a car, truck or SUV but it would look much better if it were professional done. I like how they even have the http://gladwellorthodontics.com/ at the bottom of the vehicle. I am, by no means, a marketing genius, but the fact that this caught my eye while in the Raleigh area tells me that it is catching the eyes of other people as well. I digress, how much does something like this cost?
  13. That is awesome! What a fantastic looking vehicle.
  14. I would assume that you are looking for something with relatively good gas mileage since you are doing Uber?

    The Zora C8 Corvette

    Very interesting. I will try to continue to research this possibility.

    The Evolution of the Modern Truck - Infographic

    This is a fantastic graphic. Absolutely love it!
  17. So one of my friends is thinking about getting a brand new Chevy truck. He told me he is likely going to have to pay about $800 a month for a $50,000 truck, which is crazy to me. I started to look around and it seems that trucks are quickly approaching $75k. I also found a few ways to save including waiting until holidays like Black Friday. Here is an interesting dealership that offers a coupon with the sale - http://www.performancefordnc.com/info.cfm/page/2017-ford-f-150-black-friday-sales-event-in-north-carolina-1084/ I haven't found a ton of local dealerships advertising Black Friday 2017 sales quite yet, but I am seeing a few TV commercials. Have you purchased a car or truck on Black Friday? Did you save money?

    The "List all your cars" thread

    1997 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 2004 Audi A4 2009 Audi A4 2012 BMW 535i 2013 BMW 320i
  19. I have heard some people spend $500 to $1000 on Craigslist, drive the car until it dies and do it again. You may end up saving money this way.
  20. Very interesting topic. Are you going to post your findings anywhere online?

    Audi A7 or BMW 5

    I have owned both an Audi and a BMW and BMW is, by far and away, the better car.
  22. Does anyone know of the different manufacturer discounts for the military? I know I have seen a bunch of Veterans and Military discount ads for Ford and Chevy trucks but I have also seen local dealerships that offer discount on all makes and models. I found this one searching around - https://www.lejeunehondacars.com/military-discount.html. It would be great to have a resource that has a graphic or chart of all the different military discounts that are available. This will help me and my son quite a bit as we don't exactly have money growing on trees over here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    1996 GMC Savanna 1500 Mark III

    This brings back memories. My father used to have a green one years ago. It is great to still see some of the Mark VIII models on the road these days.
  24. While Hyundai is getting better, there are still some engine issues. That said, it is not nearly as expensive as it would be to fix a BMW or Audi so you have that to hang your hat on.

    The Best Car

    I don't think the Fiesta is the "best" car, but it definitely is a vehicle you can get in under $300 a month which could easily make it the "best" car for some. I cannot believe how much some of these cars are these days. To get in a Honda Accord you have to spend $20k?
