Either drive the 2007 RRSC, or when the wife wants it, I will take her 2006 A4 3.2. Both are great fun. I do miss driving the Defender here in the winter. But currently my entire street is one solid piece of ice. IT SUCKS!

No it wouldn't. Most of the parking out here has a clearance of about 6'4-6'6. I'm 6'2 and almost hit my head on some of the crap that hangs down from the ceilings. My truck is also slightly lifted. If it had the lights off and set up standard it would be tight. I still may do that. I have some really nice new boost rims that I had powdercoating so I'm still looking at changning it back to stock and changing the wheels to drive it daily.

Judging from the number of members here with really cool "Non-D" cars begs the question:

What is the average board member age here?

I originally figured late 20s early 30's, but now I'm thinking it may be older?

Most of the DC crew seems to be mid-to-late 30s (+ or -).

I've been driving a 90 as my daily driver since 1998. First one I bought was a white ST with 6k miles that I drove for 5 years, had a POE for a little while but for the past 7 years I've driven this SW. Honestly struggle to think of another vehicle I'd get as much enjoyment and use out of.

What size tires are you running on there? Is that stock height?

My daily is a W211 Mercedes E-Class 4Matic Wagon (or Estate for you ROW folks) - it's a great kid hauler, and even has the flip-up rear facing seat in the back so the kids can make faces at the car behind us. Much better than another SUV or a (gasp) crossover, or a (gag) minivan.

I don't feel it, but I just turned 41.

1984 subaru brat. Ej22 powered with 5speed dual range trans. 4in lift. Super fun little rig plus I get carpool taking the kid to school which is 2/3 of my commute. Yes I've got the seats for the back but they live on the front porch cause I use the bed to carry Landrover parts.

How do you like that C63? I've driven a friend's a couple times, but that's the extent of my C63 experience. I absolutely love the car though. The C63 Black Series sedan is going to be amazing, but I think my next ride will be a true exotic, like a 16M or LP-560.
