how do you let go of the cars you love when you know it's time to move on?

I used the constant for the 370z, the whp numbers from the Q60s which has the same engine, and the weight of the new 400z to estimate the quarter mile of this thing when it comes out

I want to sell my 335i M-Sport 6MT so badly bros but I know I'm going to miss it
even though I'll be upgrading to an f80 M3 which is basically an upgrade in every way possible, I just know I'm going to miss my e90
I can't bring myself to sell it
>>
>>24863776
you're going to regret it
>>
>>24863628
I'm not a wrenchlet, so I can fix just about anything short of massive crash damage. If that happens, the car will be dead and I will not have to let go because it will already be gone.
>>
>>24863628
Sell it and regret it forever, or just keep it dude. I bought my dream car 15 years ago and still garage it, and drive a shitty crossover for everything mundane.
>>
>>24863776
>e90 to f80
You're going the wrong direction, bro
>>
>>24863628
as long as you care for it you dont have to. its not often you find your one true love
>>
>>24863776
okay then dont sell it. spend whatever money youd spend on the f8- m3 to upgrade your current car.
>>
>>24863916
Yep. My wife wants me to sell my E39 and buy some mid-size like a Camry or whatever. I just casually explain that we can just take out half the cost of that new car and use it for maintenance for the next 6/7 years. She doesn't get it.
>>
>>24863927
i dealt with this with my gf when i bought my latest car. women dont get "Facts", explaining how it makes more sense because of the cost, or how it makes sense because its reliable this dependable that yadda yadda yadda it doesnt go anywhere. just pressure how it makes you FEEL about getting rid of this car, how it makes you FEEL to give up this machine youve put so much time in to, and be adamant about how you (emotionally) cant cope with giving it up, it "doesnt feel right"
>>
>>24863771
seems quite lackluster. the 90s jap cars were doing mid-high 12s in perfect conditions stock.

I've been driving pic related since 2003. I keep looking at new cars but I enjoy this one too much to get rid of it. I know I'll regret it. Plus I just spent about 2k on repairs.....
>>
>>24863935
was that new when you bought it? ugly car but i gotta respect the longevity
>>
>>24863628
Sell it, internalise the pain, say nothing, don't cry, just take the money and die about 20 years early like a real man from alcohol abuse and stress
>>
>>24863930
Yep

Is it reliable? Yes
Does it meat our needs? Yes
Is it maintained and in good shape? Yes
But it isn't new!
>>
>>24863628
for $40K I'd rather by a $20K 370z and drop $15k on performance to get it to 450-500 HP and $5K on modernization/interior to make it a truly better car than the new Z desu. Factory twin turbos doesn't mean much when the engine lost almost a whole liter of displacement and thus has lower potential than the VQ.
>>
>>24863987
literally all questions i asked and answered when i was doing the ol back and forth with my woman. none of it meant anything to her because above all it was an "old car" so it must be "unreliable" and "expensive"

literally was not until i start expressing how i FELT about this car and how i FELT about continuing to drive my current car that she got on board with it. was no common ground until i figured that out
>>
>>24863751
Holy shit is candlejack here? I don't know why he'd want to drive a shi
>>
>>24863771
I want to get a q50 but I’ve been hearing about the vr30s having cooling problems and the turbos going out at 70-80k. Maybe I should just get the q70 with the 3.7?
>>
>>24863916
my 335i is already "spec'd out"
there isn't really anything I can/want to do to it besides getting a newer model for the updated engine (s55)
it's already got nearly 500hp on the N54 from intakes and JB4 plus an M3 LSD in the rear but it's a rare euro delivery and I would rather kms than sell it
>>
>have mint Jetta
>have lifted truck

Jetta is in great condition but i don’t want to drive it anymore. Truck is too big for everyday. It’s so ducking stressful bros. I need a comfy v8 sedan or coupe. Please fucking help me I’m desperate

>>24863628
>ugly butterface
>soulless digital cockpit
Pitty, could have been a really great car.
>>
>>24863628
Usually by totaling them

>>24863930
that's just a sign of a bad gf
I mean, I know it bro. I have a very shitty relationship. When things were good she was excited about my shitboxes, but now things have gone to shit and she dislikes all of my cars
life fucking sucks

Too bad the VQ is an oil burning POS that sounds like ass. Nissan will never be based until they stick an I6 into a Z car.

>pretty sure you mean the more modern ones though

>>24863776
Don't sell it. Do you want to be another 50 year old dude, driving a cuckbox, and reminiscing about the cars you 'never should have sold'?
Just keep it and enjoy it.
