    It was finally time to get rid of my '95 Nissan Maxima. Ive had that car for over 8 years. This past year every thing seemed to go wrong with it. I had already put about a grand into it for repairs last year and found out last week it needed about $1500 worth or work. As much as I hated to part ways it was time to move on.

    I was in the market for a compact car due to a strict budget. After test driving cars like the Honda Civic, Mazda3, and Scion TC I finally decided to go with the new VW Rabbit. I got about 3 grand for the Maxima as a trade in. Which is more than I expected due to all the work it needed plue the odometer stopped working 4 years ago and its been readin 161000 miles ever since (didnt tell the dealership about the odometer).
    Heres the only pics I took.

    It came with 15"wheels with hubcabs so I upgraded to 16" alloy wheels package, but the dealership did not have the wheels in stock. Ill probably be getting them by the end of the week. Ill take more pics after the wheels are installed. It's cool and sucks at the same time cause this is my first car in about 8 years but now I have car payments!

    When I saw the title I thought you meant you got a pet bunny. I was going to make a hasenpfeffer joke.

    I love that when I saw the thread titles this one was right beside the post from Rabbit saying he got robbed.

    It looks like a good car.

    You should totally pimp your ride. It needs more spoilers!

    Im covering the whole car with gigantic Nike Swoosh stickers and Honda stickers even though it's not a Honda. Im adding a 10 ft tall spoiler on each side of the car also. Plus im fitting it with a body kit that was made for a truck and putting 20 count them.. 20 flame emblems on the hood! Damn there are gonna be some jealous people on the roads!

    apologies if my plans offend anybody!

    Don't forget the exhaust pipe made from a Maxwell House coffee can and the one big wiper blade that goes all the way across your windshield!
