I may be selling my G35 DG Willow leather 6MT 2000 miles in the next 2 weeks. As much as I hate to do it, my 6MT is going to get me killed in my line of work.

I talk on the phone all day in my car and shifting is a pain in the ass even with the head set. I sound like a wuss I know. I'm getting another G but this will be 5AT. Have not decided for sure to do this yet, but if anyone is interested, email me at [email protected]. Trying to minimize my depreciation hit. Not willing to lose much so may just keep it. If in Houston area let me know.

good luck with the sale, tnbooo.

this is a good endorsement for the 5AT for those who have been reading the threads comparing the two.

I use the 6MT as a good excuse NOT to talk on the cell phone. "Can't talk now, I'm driving" At least my girlfriend understands... [boink]

Daring,

That is exactly how I feel too. As I get in my car, my phone could ring till the battery dies. Nothing is interrupting me from enjoying the drive...

too true, daring & craigdred. cel phone usage in cars has gotten completely out of control. for some, it's a necessity, but for most, it's just idle chat that is best done when you're not operating a moving vehicle.

Florida government is at the brink of completely banning cellphone usage in vehicles. Idiots that can't talk & drive... [dunce]

It's not just driving either. Some people just seem to have no common sense when it comes to cell phones. A few examples which I've witnessed:

Public restroom
Classy restaurant
Front row at a concert
Movie theatre
Church
While checking out at a grocery store

What I don't understand is that everyone has caller ID these days. Don't answer and return the call later. It's that simple. [:(!]

Yes cell phones are distracting but outlawing them is ridiculous. I mean under most laws you can still dial them (as if that's not distracting). Of course you can eat, change CDs (love the six disk changer), look at a map, put on make-up, talk to the person next to you or any other thing people do while in their car but don't talk on the phone. Seems kind of silly to single out cell phones when the real problem is driving while distracted no matter what it is.

Sorry for the rant.

I think that is a great start...At least I will have the excuse when work calls, that I couldnt answer the phone [:D]

When I see a stupid driver, I can almost guarantee they are yapping away...

Why wouldn't someone just spend $900 more and get a new one with no miles on it? This 2003's value is actually about $29-30K as will be clear when KBB and NADA come out with their new books. All cars lose at least 15-20% in the first year. It will be worse if the brake/rotor and center console issues are not fixed soon. I have seen a few of these go for about $33K lately. Those idiot [dunce] buyers are just flushing money down the drain. I intend to buy a 2004 unless I see that a used 2003 comes available with a reasonable price.

It's the usual problem - irresponsible people get someone killed, and when someone dies, that's when the laws repressing the rest of us get put into effect. Just about every vehicle code in the book is due to someone dying.

Unfortunately, most people are too incompetent to handle heavy machinery and the drama of their lives on cellphones all at the same time. And 40% of incompetents don't even realize they're incompetent.[crazy]
