Who says the BR-Z won't work?



From the Edmunds Long Term Review of the BRZ

CONGRATULATIONS MIKE !!!!!!! So happy for you bother. This is the most rewarding thing you can do in life. It gives life more meaning , purpose, and direction........and great excuse to car shop . lol

When we had our second we ended up changing out both cars. I ditched my GS350 for an LS460 and we ditched the wifes Murano LE for a Sienna Limited. I wish you the best buddy.

Congrats LEXFATHER!! Great news! Currently have a 22 month old myslef. I have found getting the Munchkin in and out of the LS is much easier than the GS, even thought the GS has ample room, it's the door sloped window frame that's the issue. However since my daughter is big enough to sit foward now, it is much easier to reach her and the contents in the backseat of the GS than it is the LS, so we have to trade one convenience for an inconvenience either way

When the kid is able to crawl in \ out by themselves small back seat is fine, if you're messing with a removable baby seat etc, funk dat in the brz!

Many will disagree but take a look at the new Escalade with the middle buckets. It allows you to have someone, say your mother inlaw in the third row yet able to pass between the two buckets to check on the kids, give them snacks etc etc

I am going to far left field and saying Chevy SS

I know I am wrong as there is no badge prestige, but it should be a great fast family hauler for FL

Congratulations to both you and your wife with Junior on the way. Cars come and go, even those custom-made for us or the ones we like best, but you will be a father for the rest of your life.


BTW.... like the poster just above, at first, I would probably have guessed a Chevy SS (I know how much you liked the very similar Pontiac G8 GT). But you said you wanted a red interior....the SS only comes with black leather.

Congrats Mike!

Now's your chance to finally get that M you've always wanted.

M3 sedan, and custom order it exactly to your specifications straight from Germany.

SUV route, everybody has an X5, so I'd recommend a Porsche Cayenne.

The best family wagon, elite, fun to drive, sounds like an Enzo, 4WD good in the snow, is better then a Maserati so your wife would approve, boom, done. You are welcome

A stock one look lame and clearly not exclusive enough for you though, but if you Novitec'd it out, is not too bad. And you can get the leather in any shades of red you want.

Hell yes I am right

If the FF aren't exclusive enough, how about a Brabus 6x6, you sure won't run across another one when you are driving yours! It is a nice little baby truck, you would look cool dropping the kid off at the daycare. And there is your red leather!

If both of those axles are powered, that would make for some badass burnouts.
