No more wranlger :(

Since it was in my dad's name the state counted it as being part of the estate and an assest which all got taken to pay back his debts since he passed. I decided I wanted a wrangler as a "toy" (offroading, sunnydays with top off, camping, tailgating, that sorta thing) not a daily driver. So I baught a BMW 128i for a daily driver.

I do miss my wrangler alot. I plan on buying a cheap used project TJ that I can build over time. Hopefully I can still be apart of the community because I've come to like all of you since I first joined. Lol, I still wave at wranglers I pass.

Oh, and Jester, sorry about your Jeep. I'm sure you'll miss it and want to replace it in time. Until then, enjoy that Beemer!!

I feel your pain. I had to choose between living in my house or living in my Jeep since the economy took a dump. It was a tough decision.

I'm hoping to get back into an older TJ by Summer.

while i am glad you support our domestic vehicles, i am partial to foreign. i've owned alot of cars both foreign and domestic and that is why. also, i talked with a gm engineer about 2 years ago, i was working in his neighborhood and we started talking about the topic, he said that in order to compete with foreign price we have to compensate somewhere, American labor is expensive, so in order to offset that we have to skimp on the materials, cheap washers, gaskets, o-rings etc... so you can like it all you want but the proof is in the pudding

thanks guys. i love this car as much as my tj, but for different reasons. This car is fast and handles incredibly well. Not to mention its a highway monster because its NA. Its so comfortable and quiet on the daily commute and long drives. I do miss my wrangler tho. I miss being able to drive over things and to go offroad. Not to mention having a removeable top. Surprisingly the bmw almost does better in the snow then the tj did. I can't wait till I can have both this bmw and a TJ sitting in my garage. I will then be in vehical heavan.
