      There's one in Raleigh that I see most days on the way to work. Its the refresh version of the 960, maybe even an S90. The outside looks to be in pretty decent shape. For the Raleigh folks, if you...

      I didn't like the rear end of the car until I saw one in person--it just works.

      Forgive me, but I've already googled. Whats the purpose of relocating the shocks to the middle? Doesn't that change the damping effect of the shock? Is it to build in some roll control?

      It sounds like you have no idea what you want at all, you just want something new.

      This. I passed on the Colorado/Canyon because it was already almost a $40k truck. I have a feeling the diesel Zr2 is going to be pushing $50k. I like that GM is making the effort, and this is the...

      My girlfriend has one. Its a pretty great little SUV that rides well, handles surprisingly decent for an SUV designed in the '90s, and has a ton of room in it. Its way ahead of the other SUVs that...

      When was the last time you drove something with a solid front axle? They suck and are miserable to drive. Sure, they're tougher and more capable at crawling over rocks at 3 mph, but at anything...

      I'm seriously contemplating trading my R6 for a little duke if it ever actually comes here. I hardly ever ride on the freeway anymore, it'd be perfect. I just wonder how it'll be for people over 6'.

      Nice.

      If that truck was rear wheel drive based, had a real bed, and didn't look stupid, it'd be a competitor for my business. I'm not attached to a solid rear axle as long as the replacement is...

      Well damn, I need summa' dat in my truck. I actually remember hearing about the coil springs in the Ram, I just never really looked into it that hard. I never drove the Ram because I wasn't...

      Understood, I guess that makes sense when I get under and look.

      Now for a more advanced question:

      I noticed that the shackle is mounted on the rear of the axle. This seems like it would give...

      I used to drive 90 miles per day, it was the only place I could find a job in my field after graduating from school...in 2009 :banghead: You do what you have to do to make a living.

      True, but weight is weight, watts are watts, and frontal areas are pretty similar between a 6'2" and a 5'8" guy.

      FWIW, I'm 6'2".

      No problem. I was in the Mid 170 lbs to low 180 lb range when I was racing well and putting out those watts. I'm fat and under-trained right now, and I'm pretty certain that I could go out and...

      In most places in North Carolina, there is not sufficient public transport to get away with not owning a car. Even if he walks to work, he'll have to get something.

      My vote is CPO E90 328i. ...

      You got an oddball truck that only a contractor would want. Contractors don't buy used trucks, they buy 5-10 new ones at a time and get a good deal on them. The truck that resales the best is a...

      I have an E90 also and though it probably doesn't need to be said, these are really different vehicles. I love the BMW and I wish I could keep it, but I just bought a fixer upper house (part of the...
