Default The $35K question?

The average (whatever the **** that means) new car goes for ~$37K.

What would you buy?

A 2018 Toyota Tundra SR5 Crewmax. And $3k worth of aftermarket accessories.

Spend $35k on a CTR, and $2k on a CRX.

What wheels did you put on it. Looks exactly what I want to do. I hope they are gram lights. 20 inch rims are way over kill and pot holes in my city will **** them up.

MSRP has gone up since I got mine. You paid like $36,700 MSRP? Think I paid $34,699 plus a 2k markup and $1000 for the 10 year/100k warranty.

well the forums said MSRP went to their site doesn’t show it?

Yea there was 3 of them there beat them all. One was caged with two fancy buckets, tune, exhaust etc got trailered there lol.

Done 4-5 autocrosses that had a RS there and always got them regardless of a large or tight course. Might come down to driver who knows how good they are.

There was one at the trackday I did and lapped him too :D

I have no interest in new cars
I'd buy an s2k and a old pickup. Maybe an el camino.
