Default Should i be concerned.. Time travel butterfly chaos etc

I've been thinking about a new ride, a 2012 to be specific.
My question is if I buy a 2012 model now in 2011 and take possession of it say today, should I be concerned about running into the vehicle in the future, say sometime in January 2012. If so, what can happen?


Any advice would appreciated. I am not experienced in such matters.

With your luck, it'll turn out to be a 1985 model that had the VIN tag replaced and the odometer rolled back in 2015 while they were doing the hover-conversion.

We all know what you got Rick. You don't have to hide any more. I swear we won't be jealous of you.

If you run into yourself in the future you'll most likely be naked and super buff.

If your 2012, and the real car from 2012 ever meet they must fight to death. I'd be prepared.

2012...this is touchy.
Rick, I speak for the entire world when I say that we are going to hold you accountable for the events that unfold if you meet yourself and your car in 2012. This will disrupt the space time continueum.
If you will walk into the car dealer and the manager yells from across the room, "Hey McFly!!! I thought I told you never to come in here", then you must follow these directions:
Take that photo of Braineack where he is sitting at his drum set from his band days. If he starts to get real blurry and fade away, you have to make sure he plays at the Enchantment Under The Sea Dance. If he doesn't play, they can't dance...and if they don't dance, they can't kiss...and, well...you know that rest of the story.
Just keep in mind...1.21 Gigawatts is = to a bolt of lightning.
Don't let us down...

And also its a dream within a dream within a dream and if you die your mind will be caught in a state of limbo for decades or maybe forever, so theres that too.

If I come down there, should I bring my engine hoist and tranny jack? If the clutch discs slide onto the input shaft, I WILL have your trans bolted in your car.

Did you ever notice how big of a douchebag I am? Or maybe I'm/her are really found of 2dr coupes?

It would be my wife's DD, to replace her prelude. I keep the Ferrari.

I like the G35 better than the G37. That's just my opinion though. As far as kepping the Ferrari, a miata with an Italia body kit is still a miata.

Neighbor just got a g37s, i believe it is. 4 door. Brand new last week. Has had issues with the USB for the audio. He got a deal on it he told me. He usually leases and had been with Acura for 6 years for leases but this time they wouldn't buy out his 4,000 km overage on his Acura TLs. Infinity cut a check for him to give to Acura if he became an Infinity customer.... awesome.

Buddy has g35x and it is slow stupid turd and handles like faggo

And it burns a quoart of oil every 500 miles. And has since 30k miles.

And is a nightmare to work on.

time to get a subie woobie woo. Outback XT or legacty gt wagon for the win. Frank is selling his.

You think my wife needs to drive fast?
You think my wife needs to corner on rails?
You think our prelude doesnt burn oil?
It is however extremely easy to work on.

My replacement will be a subbie most likely, but I'm looking at the '07-08 2.5L wrx wagon.


But whatever I do buy, I'll make sure it's aqua/blue, has headlight and taillight covers, and one hell of an ugly spoiler.
