Good to see you back, some of us diehards are still around.
I dunno . . do you have payments left on the 318? Seems like keeping it and running it to the ground might be cheaper than making payments on a new car? Unless you're really going through that "one thing after another breaking down" scenario, at 165k. Just saying because making payments suck, no matter how small- especially for a college student. On the other hand, the cargo room factor is a big plus. And you can't go wrong with a Scion/Toyota.
If you decide to keep the 318, I got a Thule base rack I'm selling off that'll fit it, but I think you bought one already?
Just for kicks . . .
