[quote:Catseye:MV80MjQ1NzgyXzc3Mjg2OTY2XzJGOUI5RUM4] [quote:Anonymous Coward 12921000:MV80MjQ1NzgyXzc3Mjg2NjY5X0I0NzhDNDY0] You can remap a Mercedes diesel to 280hp if the quality of diesel on sale in DR is OK Torque figures go through the roof also and you end up with a very very fast car that gives great MPG still [/quote] I was wondering about that, good to know there’s diesel here, some stations have old tanks and get water inside, it all depends where you buy your gas my mechanic even recommended anything diesel [/quote]
The roads here are patched and bumpy and you have motorcycles zipping around you like flies. It’s video game driving. Sure it’s a dangerous country if you’re a dumbass but otherwise it’s fun as hell. You need something agile and speedy for passing. Plus I have the added complication of having an insanely inclined curvy driveway. I have to have AWD or some sort of serious traction control.
I’m thinking about a used Lexus or a new Beemer but I want other ideas. The Lexus is reliable but the Beemers are known money pits. Will a new car warranty prevent any new car from being a money pit? Routine maintenance on anything is much cheaper here. I could never afford a Beemer back in Florida, for instance.
I already have an 2009 X5 4.8x with a blown motor, the second in 14 months. I want to fix it and keep it to have to drive once in awhile when I need an SUV and would prefer to buy a car to drive most of the time.
Basically, I want comfort and speed while hugging the road. And for somewhere around $50K.
cars I had in the past: ‘85 Trans Am, ‘87 Corvette, ‘90 Formula Firebird, 2011 Cadillac STS but this X5 is the most fun to drive
any thoughts from fellow driving enthusiasts?
from what I can tell online, Beemers are the most fun but Lexus will end up costing much less.
