Drz, my trade-in isn't really worth shit. The dealer where the services are done said they'd offer me ~$6,000 for it (even though retail is ~$12k+ and less than 3 yrs ago, paid $18,600+tax).
I seem to have mood swings. Now, I'm inclined to research out Trucks. Particularly the Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier. Both look quite promising for everyday driving giving up 20mpg while both having 4.0L V6's (230hp and 260hp respectively). Pricing ranges of course, but seems like they can be well loaded up for $27k. A manual version is available for the toyota (6spd).
I know it may seem like I am bouncing all over the place, but, for me, I just can't seem to find the right CAR to purchase, being real finiky since I have this POS Bimmer parked outside.
