Buffalo. Flew up there and turned right around and drove back down to southeast PA. I searched online and emailed various sales or general managers directly.

Not sure which of the following available with these deep discounts can still be leased and/or you qualify for additional incentives--check out the last few pages of the thread, but you probably see the same on cars.com:

I'm glad you walked away from this accident with "minor" injuries. As for the car, it looks totaled. I'd recommend getting that dream BMW M3/M4. "Life's too short to drive slow cars".

Glad you're ok. Metal and plastic is replaceable.

Out of all your choices, I would only be interested in the M3/4 or the 350. The rest are meh imho.

Buffalo used to be expensive because of Toronto buyers. When the currencies were at par, i bought from Allentown, far enough but close enough.

I live near Allentown. Still seems to attract buyers. Not just Ford either. I think it's a cheap place to put up a big building out of which to sell mass produced vehicles.

It was Scott's GM.

I wanted a Saab 9-3 but being 2010 there were not many of the refreshed 2008's left on the used markets and brand new they were still asking well over $40K in Toronto. I knew Saab was done but there was, and still is, three excellent Saab indies within 15 minutes of my house.

So i see ads in the USA for BRAND NEW 9-3 wagons for $24K. Like WHAT THE HELL. So i start poking about and SCOTT had 3 wagons, $16K each with under 25,000 miles.

By the time I paid all the canadian taxes etc it set me back $20K but still way cheaper than it would have been here. Plus we spent a weekend in Philly

I still drive the car today, all in it has cost me the equivalent of $243 month which is a steal.

Lmao, that was a good one. I would think that the open diffs would be much safer in bad conditions.

I agree with having tread depth, but riding in the rain is not that much different though :P. You just need to maintain 100mph on the freeway to keep the temp in the tires.

I did that on the a freeway in Canada in the rain when my 1990 CBR1000 was breaking the 10,000 mile mark (100 MPH @ 10,000 miles - you get it). My (now) wife got hit in the leg by a rock; I was told to "slow down"...
