    The reason I like the silver one at Shaw is it appears to have no sunroof.

    I feel like we’re going to see some sticker shock for 2023 msrps. With demand in the US drawing more than Msrp on everything, there’s no way manufacturers are going to leave that on the table.

    We’re just lucky that we don’t have draconian dealer laws here that lets dealers get away with big ADMs. Only reason there are ADMs is because manufacturers aren’t jacking up msrp’s every few weeks like Tesla.

    I haven't been watching car sales, but manufacturers must be down huge on unit sales, no?

    Sorry to hijack but this is what I've been going through. I hate to buy a vehicle at surged pricing, but feel like if I don't, it'll get worse next year.

    Does a guy bite the bullet and hope it's the right choice? Lol

    You only buy a car in this market if the alternative is walking.

    If you need a car buy a car. If you don’t need a car don’t buy a car.

    Yolo. I didn’t want to be in my cripple years to enjoy a low sporty vehicle. All that money in the bank is pointless if you can’t enjoy it while you’re healthy. No ragrets.

    Flip a coin.

    Tails you put in the effort to buy something you want in 2022.
    Heads you wait until 2024.

    Flip the coin and before you look at it, you'll already be wishing for what you hope to see, and then you'll know what to do.

    when we do turn the corner, it will be quick, and values will crash.

    Unless we are in permaflation.

    Really I think people overthink it. Cars are generally poor investments. Buy then when you need them, or when you want one enough not to worry about the value.

    Most of the recommendations to save your money come from guys who are content with driving pedestrian transportation appliances, do you relate with that?

    I believe that you are a true car enthusiast, and you value the satisfaction of a fun performance vehicle, punt the 335D and buy the V. You'll be happier in the long run and won't regret the decision.

    Life is too short to drive boring cars.
    I like neat cars.

    Is the 335d boring? Never driven the 335d, but 335 with n54 or n55 I wouldn't call boring.

    Cool car now, or cooler car later is the question.

    If it’s not an old ass cts V or a loud Jeep it’s boring.

    Everyone knows that

    Why not both? The joy of performance cars is that they typically hold their value better then the mundane. Sell it in a few years and buy something else.

    That CTS V price is actually fairly consistent with a few years ago, a bit inflated but not crazy.
    I like neat cars.
