    My best friend always dogs on BMWs and other luxury/performance cars for reason. Apparently people with small peckers drive them. According to him, real men drive trucks. However, his truck is a piece. 2002 Dodge Dakota Sport...weak V6, 2WD that gets stuck on a flat road in rain, and has the worst transmission ever. He thinks the Cobalt SS is totally badass, then tried to rip on an Ion Redline one day. I informed him that they're the same car. He also favors a 350Z, but says he will never put a "Japanese made POS tire on his car." I don't get it. I run Toyo Proxe T1-Rs on mine and he thinks I'm a ricer for not using good American tires. I believe he also made a snyde foreign comment about a G35, then proceeded to gaze in awe at a 350Z right afterward. Discussing cars is something we do not do well, and you can't tell someone anything when they don't believe the straight up facts.

    I will vouch for Saturns. Plenty of my friends own them, and they'll run 10 times out of 10, no questions asked. I personally think (and you all may disagree, which is fine) that you can tell how reliable an overall company is by seeing how many older models are still on the road. I can't tell you how many people I've heard raking Hondas over the coals for being pieces of crap, yet there are more old Hondas on the road than about any other make.

    How's this...take the sex appeal of a Lambo, the refinement of a BMW, the luxury of a Benz, the reliability and longevity of a Honda, the safety of a Volvo, the bombproof AWD of an STi, the gas mileage of a Corolla, the insurance of a Geo Metro, the exhaust tone of a 2JZ MKIV Supra, the aftermarket options of a Mustang, the projector cutoffs of a TSX, the aerodynamics of a 350Z, the 50/50 weight distribution of an RX-8, the horsepower of a McClaren F1, and the affordability of a Toyota Echo. I'd take it.

    Did I forget anything?

    edit: Yeah I did...sleeper effect of an SRT-4 with full stage 3 Mopar kit.

    P99

    First. I'm not in the Walther section to read about cars.
    Second. Buy a Sportbike and smoke almost every car on the street at a quarter of the price or more and the same amount of sex appeal.
    Third. Buy a P99 instead of the SW. If you really want a SW, look at the M&P.


    P.S. I work for an American Manufacturer and we produce the finest and most recognized products in our industry. We can engineer anything but the consumer is not going to pay for a bunch of crap they don't need. If you tried to compare our products to cars it would be like comparing a Beretta, another great Italian mfg, to a Hi-Point.

    Agreed. Let's find a Saturn forum and harass them about Walther firearms...

    I picked the Walther P99 AS in 9mm because I wanted a 100% German produced firearm for my first weapon.
    For my next one...who knows....

    Sorry to all for the hijack...got carried away responding to some unqualified statement about Italian sports cars....

    That's my plan for this summer. I still haven't found one with air conditioning but I'm looking.

    100+ MPH keeps you cool enough.

    gadgetguy...buy whichever you can afford. It won't be your last handgun, I guarantee it.

    No it doesn't...I've gone 600mph in a 757 and I was burning up the entire time. Definitely gonna need some A/C. Lol...I'm looking at a 2004+ GSX-R600 and 750, 2005 R6 Raven, and 2004+ CBR600RR. Also considering a 2003 R6 Raven/red flames if the money is a bit short. Icon helmet, jacket, gloves, and pants, and a box of Trojan condoms for the drive-in. Can't be too risky nowadays.
