      Dude we've talked about this. Please drive an E90 BMW with the 6-Speed and a sport package. Like this weekend.

      I hate to be negative, but jeez, I'm just not seeing the appeal of the GLA. I know I've already posted in this thread once, but it seems like the whole appeal of the GLA45 AMG is the stiff ride,...

      Um, if he's still married to her, its his car too that he ****ed up. Brilliant. That's like giving away half of your 401k anticipating a divorce to spite your wife...she's just going to take half...

      Is the body roll a key component to the "feel" that the Miata people are always talking about? Everyone I've ever talked to has said that the Miata has the best steering feel of any car out there...

      Am I the only person who thinks its nuts that he wants a sporty, rough riding, loud car to drive clients around in? I'd have a Prius for the clients, and sports coupe for fun. No point in...

      I had a Malibu for a week as a rental. Overall, a decent car handicapped by awful visibility. Would not buy.

      I'd probably choose the Verano also. That's the Cruze with the Buick treatment,...

      Spoken like a true Baby Boomer. Unfortunately, things don't work the way they did when you first started working. For most people entering the workforce, they'll make exactly what they make now for...

      Nice work on that flatbed, but I'm a little disappointed that you didn't go with a linked setup in the rear. You've got all that room now!

      They can't. I've heard that more cars from "Buy here pay here" lots are repo'd than paid off. Its part of the business plan--you sell the same car over and over again, repo'ing it after 2-3 months...

      The problem with vehicles setup like that is that the resale is terrible. If you're going to modify it and tank the resale anyways I guess it doesn't matter, but one of the great things about BMWs...

      Yea, that's kind of wild that the cars you looked at were so crummy. Normally Carmax cars are in pretty damn good condition. I drove a Subaru at the same Carmax Samson likely did (Glenwood Ave?)...

      Hmm, you don't use those racks that are shaped like a "U" or a "J" that have the little strap integrated that holds it in?

      I vote wagon as well.

      I've got a Tacoma, and it handles well for a truck. Just about everything else out there rides and handles better. The ranger is a particularly poor handling truck, so I...

      So you're selling this house...where are you going to live now? I'd put as little of it as possible into a downpayment on another house, then buy inexpensive rental property outright. But that's...

      The "bike-down, rider-up" technique comes from dirt riding, where you slam the bike onto the side knobs to get them to bite. Supermotos have a ton of ground clearance, so they can get away with it...

      The style 162s are awesome looking wheels, but they weigh a ton. If I kept my E90, I'd have gotten the APEX ARC-8's. Great looking wheel, ~17 lbs.

      I think it's an Otto cycle (normal engine) until cruise, then it goes Atkinson, possible through vvti.



      Just because the numbers say 265@4000rpm doesn't mean that it is 200@1500rpm. The 1gr-fe...
