I did the unthinkable...I traded in the Taco.
My truck served me very well. I couldn't have built my basement without it, and it was so convenient to pick up just about anything on my way home. I will truly miss it.
My wants have changed though. I'm a track-day motorcyclist that needs a cure for my need for speed during the winter months. So I traded for a CPO 2008 335xi. Not that the Taco isn't agile. I just wanted something for the occasional need for spirited driving. For hauling stuff, I'm going to have to depend on my wife's Sienna to pull my fold-able 4x8 trailer.
The last great thing my truck did for me was save me some money on the car purchase. The trade-in value for the Taco is just ridiculously high. Plus the dealership gave me the KBB price for a vehicle rated as 'very good'.
I will truly miss this wonderful site. Thank you to all those who have helped me in the past...continue helping each other out dudes.
