Regret my getting rid of my 2006 G35:



I traded it on a 2011 Mustang which I loved, but times got hard and it was a no brainier the car was the first thing to go. Got my feet back, got a new job and now have my 1 series which I love!

1984 Toyota Supra - My first GT cruiser. Lots of college memories in that car. Unfortunate demise due to telephone pole. RIP.

I regret trading in my.......'95 Jaguar XJ6. It was "almost" British racing green (slightly lighter) with tan connolly leather and burlwood dash. I bought it off a lawyer for only $2,900 (it needed work). I put less than $1,000 into it (I was an auto tech at the time) and drove it for 2.5 years before trading it towards my 328xi. It was bulletproof reliable after I worked out the kinks and was classy as all hell. Loved the torque of that big 4.0 straight 6.

Secondly, not a car, but my '08 Ducati 848. Bought it brand new off the showroom floor. I sold it 3 seasons later to also fund the purchase of my 328xi. Oh well, at least the bimmer was paid for in cash! Hope to get another Ducati next season when I'm finished with school. Priorities have taken over for the time-being

I still can't believe Hawaii makes you guys put stickers on the bumper of your cars. I saw a GranTurismo on Maui with that ugly sticker on it. Yuck!

Yeah I don't like them either, but I'm over trying to be clever about it so the bumper they go.

My biggest regret was my Henna Red 1988 E30 M3. Sold it and then bought a 2006 Lotus Elise. I have some regrets about selling that car as well. But the M3 takes the cake. Not only did I have thousands of great road miles on her but we did 1000's of track miles as well. She was not the fastest but man could she get around a track!
