Car buying advice?

LuzVariasLuzVarias Expert MemberRegistered Users 2,707 Posts
I've never bought a car, and was thinking more about it lately. Does anybody have advice?

Does the car really block the pigeon from giving energy in Soho? Thought I'd heard that...

Also, any advice about choosing between the various models?

Thanks!

    Is there a pigeon in Soho? I know there's something behind the car in Tribeca.

    Nope! I finally caved and bought the jet, and now I feel silly paying for bus fare! I split my acquisitions between two avatars, so I'd only had oodles of clothes, a couple of homes, and a gaggle of pets for each of them until today. I bought more Kstars (I rewarded myself for something that went well at my actual job in real life), so I can have a little more fun. Now my girl has a jet, maybe a car. My guy will be out of luck, but it's safer for guys to hitchhike, anyway!

    Do you already know what car you'll get?

    That's what I was thinking of, then. That's kind of a bummer... Can you somehow click the car and get energy, even if the bird's out of sight?

    I have two cars... the Range Rover ($20,000) & The Luxury SUV ($35,000).... I shouldn't have bought them both... one sits in the garage collecting dust, while the other is on the street.

    You can "place" or change which one you like & change their color in the garage, which is cool. It definitely saves money.... I would reccomend buying.... but just buy one.

    Wish I'd never bought the Villa in Mexico or the second car...
    I'd rather own the private jet, or the house in Calabasas.

    Impulse buyer ;)

    Well, you can also click on "private messages" right under Kim at the top of the page. If there's nothing in your inbox, try again in a few minutes. I sent it to C1ar0u-- isn't that your Glu forum ID?

    I bought the roadster! Yay, me! It's black right now.

    Yeesh, and now I've inadvertently won that black shirt as a VIP, too. But I'm totally done shopping now.

    (Man, do I sound like a spoiled brat in this forum! But life is good.)

    I think it's just for the fun style. I can't imagine it makes a real difference.

    It turns out there IS an advantage to having the roadster! (Well, kinda.) Since it's very low-slung, it doesn't take up much room in the screen, doesn't block the view of the neighborhoods or my avatar's legs too much when they overlap. Also, you CAN tap where the pigeon should be in TriBeCa, and it still jumps up in the air as it gives up the prize! Love it!

    And holy **** (yay, bleeping!), you can throw parties on the jet! LeyshlaGisel and C1ar0u, you're actually partying in the air right now! Love that, too!

    Being a spoiled brat is splendid. Seriously, people who want jets and cars, splurge $20 or 40 on Kstars just once and live like a queen! It's mahvelous!

    Profoundly, profoundly drunk. I'm worried you'll cheat on your stud husband with that big-jawed pilot. So awkward.

    Bria, it's perfect to hear that you're pouting & to be looking at your exquisite stank-face picture at the same time! You're set up ideally for pouting.

    I was thinking that the Roadster might not block out that pigeon dammmit! Wish I could sell my Rover & trade in the SUV!

    Have a glass of champagne on the jet for me ;)
