I should also add that I'll probably never buy a new car again.

Matt you brought up an interesting topic, almost all of my used cars I kept for a short period of time (you could count the time in months not years) with the exception of the 997 ( 1 1/2 yrs) the 650i (donít remember how long) and the R8 (almost 4 years).

No used car ever felt like it was truly *my* car except for the R8, I always felt I had to buy new to get that feeling.
