It's a new car!

I'll spare you folks the huge ass imagery by not embedding them.

2003 Renault Mégane.

Drives great, gets even better mileage, and has all kinds of fancy gizmos. (Fuck turning my lights on, this car does it for me.)

I'm really happy with it so far, even though I've only had it for like a day.

Car thread? Car thread. I'll rename the thread later. :>

BMW Driver knocked me and Dibs off the road and sent us flying into that tree >:|

He had his license for about 2 months but it was confiscated immediately and he was prohibited from driving.

It was a really good car though, I loved the engine power in it, was pretty fiesty.

But I will get a new car eventually :>

This is in my driveway right now.

8.1 Liter V-8

325 Horsepower

447 lb.-ft Torque

Payload - 2,072 Pounds

Max Tow - 12,000 lbs.

4WD Automatic

22.1" Turn Radius.

This thing HAD larger tires and a lift kit on it, but we had to finally replace them because we (My family) burnt them out until they were almost completely bald. She's still a Tank overall, but handles really well for her size. I was afraid of driving this for a while until my Mother finally told me "When you're in this thing on the road, remember that because of her (The truck's) size, you'll ALWAYS have the right of way.) Since not a lot of people in the Fort Collins area use giant trucks just to putt around town.

On the downside though, she gets horrid gas mileage. 10.4 MPG.

She also has a bit of battle damage from being used over the years (It's a 2006, and she was bought IN 2006.) The tailgate lever is broken completely off due to having it slammed against a trailer jack in-use, one of the external foot boards has a chunk taken out of the back from hot-doggin' around the prairie and hitting stuff, and the back-right wheel well has a dent in it from when we had a Whiteout blizzard in FoCO, and some dweeb in a rental Pontiac Grand Prix decided to pull out in front of us to change lanes. Removed his rear bumper, we got out with the equivalent of getting the well hit by a baseball.

Kinda sad though, we're trying to trade it out for an '08 GMC Envoy. :(

22.1" Turn Radius.

I hope you mean feet and not inches.

As for me, I drive a 1998 Oldsmobile Cutlass GL

Here is a picture of a car that is almost identical, but it has alloys and leather seats where mine had wheel covers and fabric.

No Tsume, that's the legit turn radius. She's a BOAT. To put it in perspective, the picture I posted actually makes her seem smaller. From the edge of my garage door to the tail of the truck, there's only about a good 2-3 feet of clearance in my driveway. She also takes up nearly half of it in width. There's just enough space to park the truck and a single Subaru Impreza. My Aunt's Toyota Camry sits on the curb the whole time because of it. :3

I can imagine, but your post says 22.1 inches.

I assume you ment to put feet?
