I drive a beater to work and I will always have a beater. Seems dumb driving a $40K to work and then parking it outside. Especially in Texas. I don't have to worry about anything.

Was considering ~70 miles worth a day to work at one of the big 4 in Dallas. Round trip to downtown fort worth for EY is substantially less, at 28, but still feels pretty far.

The worst thing is the fuel mileage: it blows for a 3.0 liter v6.

Well, sucks to be you.

When I had the G8, aside from racing it on the weekends I rarely hit boost.....I am a cruiser type....maybe here and there I get a little wild hair and show off on the streets.
