      it's a meme, not a trope.

      a trope is a commonly used plot device, very similar to an allegory.

      anyway, if this is true, I didn't particularly care for any cars they made. but I'd not want to...

      I wrote about it in another thread. Basically the '13 was a much more basic car and the new one is way more refined. But it's still a fairly visceral experience.

      Overall the '16 handling/steering...

      I didn't watch the video, but I never cared if the techs beat my SRT Jeep during a test drive. I figure they're making sure it's within spec vis a vis being beat on, it's entire point of existence....

      if it's between DSG and manual I take DSG just so my wife can drive it. if it's between regular auto and manual, manual every time. if the car is good enough and auto only, I'd do it (AMG, etc.).

      and yet with my last lease I ended up with ~$3k in equity. also, tell this to anyone who leased a VW right up to the scandal. generally you're right though, the residual will be pretty comparative to...

      well I think people need to realize that NASCAR has several feeder series where using this older tech helps to keep costs manageable for a semi-pro outfit which most of them are. and honestly you...

      I would say losing hydraulic pressure is a realistic but extremely rare situation in which the e-brake would be required. as was stated by NYCgolf, the e-brake/parking brake works outside the primary...

      the closest you will get in a modern car is a Flyin Miata or a Mallet Solstice. The former you can find, the latter probably not so much.

      I mean, even back in the day, this specific configuration...
