    Leawood911:

    But seriously - he was not that bad.

    No I don’t think he was that bad either, so I must have missed those posts.

    I enjoyed his posts, views and opinions. Sometimes controversial, but it is refreshing to see someone swim against the current. Then again, there were often a lot of “making fun of” him from long standing members or even moderators, so I expected him to leave. Not to be forced to leave though.

    he was not into politics, but a big tesla fan and against everything and everybody but I take that as his personality.

    I am on the GT3 killah side for this one, a bit rough to kick him out Smiley

     Christian, if the car your daughter wants is reasonable from the standpoint of price, performance and safety give it to her. She’ll take great care of the car and love you and your wife even more. It’ll show that not only do you trust her but also shows you trust her judgment. kiss

    Re: A45 AMG?

    Noone1 had some interesting points of views, some I strongly disagreed with some not. But in the end it is about respect and in that department, if after many warnings he did not improve, then banning might be the only choice left...

    Good move from Apias side though.


    Re: A45 AMG?

    I think he is temporarily suspended.

    We certainly didn't ban him because he was a big Tesla fan... Smiley

    Some of his posts were too personal and too annoying. If we get reports from users that they can't stand him and/or they feel harassed, insulted or whatever, we have to act. 

    JFYI: He was, with the exception of some spam artists/advertisers, the only user to ever get banned on Rennteam. We have a pretty thick skin, we respect other opinions, we let people a lot of leeway to express their opinions. 

    So I guess the moderators have nothing to be ashamed or worried about. He had to go, it was a moderator team group decision, nobody was against it, so we went through with it.

    Smiley She is a good girl, she just wants some lame ass small SUV, so she is safe and can move from A to B.

    I wanted to get her a Mazda MX-5 (there were some nice offers here...) but no way. In a "worse case scenario", she takes a Mini (she likes Mini but she isn't sure the car is safe enough for her Smiley).

    Next week, she is going to sit behind the steering wheel for the very first time, so we'll see how she likes it. Smiley

    The A45 is off the table. Dealer really made an effort to make me happy (saw the car at the dealership) but it makes no sense from various points of view. We don't really "need" another car but my daughter does, so the Mini JCW will be replaced with something slower and cheaper.

    Small SUV for girls: Mercedes GLA or Audi Q2.

    "Porsche....and Nothing else matters"


    Re: A45 AMG?

    She thinks the GLA is ugly but she kind of likes the Q2, even if she doesn't "love" it.

    Another possibility would be the Mini Countryman AWD...we'll see. Or maybe a BMW 2 series with AWD (her brother would hate her Smiley).

    If you mean a 2 door 2-series, it might not be a good idea with kids getting in and out of the back seats often in a hurry and probably unintentionally damaging the trim.

    Re: A45 AMG?

    Seriously though, the facelifted 4 cylinder Macan would be great for any new driver, it is safe, well built, and should drive  well. 


    Re: A45 AMG?

    Given Christian's nosy neighbors, and how mean teenage girls can be (especially behind each others' backs), a plain Golf seems safest, both from driving and social acceptance perspectives.

    (I love this forum--it's the only place where a 911 isn't a sports car, but a fat GT, and an AMG is good for a teenage driver.)

    The two primary dangers for kids driving - more than one passenger and driving at night.  I say by a two seat tank that does not start at night.

    Re: A45 AMG?

    A large SUV or car is not right for a teenage driver. Very uncool. It looks like your driving you parents car. Also, a large car lends itself to other teenagers piling in a doing crazy thinks on the road. No matter how responsible a teenager is peer pressure is greater. enlightened

    Re: A45 AMG?

    She always wanted a Mini, get her a Mini . She will feel good about her car and it is well suited for new drivers .

    Others could be a Golf , A3 , 2 series , maybe a Q2

    Neighbors have now different people to dive their nose in with, no need for me anymore. Smiley

    My neighbor just bought a Porsche 356 and revs his engine almost every day in front of his house (he seems to be repairing the engine, don't have a clue what he is doing), so the neighbors' attention certainly shifted to him.

    Major issue seems to be one neighbor who drives an older E class Diesel: He just came over last week to ask me if I bought a new AMG E class to "taunt" him? Smiley He always makes bad jokes like that but I cannot help to feel some truth in his words. Smiley

    My daughter will be fine since the neighborhood already knows how good she did with school (she finished school two weeks ago). I could get her a Porsche and nobody would care now. Smiley

    Re: A45 AMG?

    Yeah, instead of the AMG, get her a 718 Boxster - biggest advantage being that when she drives away all your neighbors would be hearing the sound of a broken beetle engine, bringing back a kind of vintage memories...Smiley

    Re: A45 AMG?

    Late to this discussion.  First, sorry to hear about noone1 and his expulsion.  While being targeted by several of his sharp-tongued retorts, it became obvious he was a child, age-related or otherwise, in his maturity.  It is unfortunate that many believe the Internet offers a level of anonymity and hence one can be as uncivil toward others as possible.  

    Second, on your daughter’s car saga, the BMW X2 seems well-suited to her demands.  It’s safe, a Mini with another badge, and it would annoy her brother.  


    Re: A45 AMG?

    If you really have to get the A-Class, then you have two options and won't have to worry much about power.


    Re: A45 AMG?

    Maybe a Volvo Polestar V40 V60?
