      If you get one with a slushbox it will die and you will pay out the nose to repair it.

      A lot of my buddies have the higher end (but not diesel HD) versions of the full size pickups - around here guys mostly buy F-150s. Rams are for guys that live in white trash mobile home parks (are...

      Wealthy Chinese send their families (and as much wealth as they can sneak out of the country) here for the political and economic stability, which they do not have in China. It's still a country with...

      Yeah he has some effort in tracking it down so I doubt he's gonna give away the company secrets. :laugh:

      The instrument clusters in those things have widespread failures. The guy next to my office has an electronics store and he figured out how to repair them, I think some people pay quite a bit to have...

      I told him to switch to synthetic and change it every 5k because of the amount of towing he does. We'll see if he can stick to it. I asked when the last time he had the transmission serviced, and he...

      The S2000 boards are like that. S2ki actually had an S2000 engineer member that used to provide a lot of factory direct helpful tech advice and information, and by 2004 or 2005 the trolls had showed...

      My buddy has a 2011 with 92k that's sludged up pretty nicely. He was changing the oil every 10k-12k and using it a lot for towing, and it's getting a new motor. It's not a "work truck" either, it's...

      Those engines themselves were OK, it was everything else that was attached to it that was the problem. It wouldn't be the engine that was faulty, it was everything between the combustion chamber and...

      I think the 1.8L was the Brazilian engine, they were total garbage. As was the rest of that car.

      There are a lot of people here who talk about new cars and say they are crappy, but you have not...

      The kit car idea makes sense - Sun was importing them in the early 2000s and chunking in Honda B18Cs worked over by Spoon. They sold a handful and that was without actual factory Lotus support.

      I...

      $15k should get you a clean 2nd gen MDX. I bought my '05 for $10k a couple of years ago, it's been a great beater. Hauls 7 in a pinch, mileage is reasonable compared to a BOF truck, the 2nd gen...

      I think they stole that idea from Subaru. Subie has been making those videos since the beginning of time to show the capability of their AWD systems. They do have more AWDs than a CR-V, but I don't...

      I like Gotham, although I will add the caveat that I'm not a comic book guy and I have little knowledge of any superhero stuff. I don't think I've even sat all the way through the newer Batman movies...

      Yeah $50k is where the money is for a really nice 328 right now. Those cars are really pretty easy to own if you get a good one with records. And have a mechanic.

      Ferrari made a lot of those, but...

      I mean if you're gonna call it a Ferrari 360, what's the harm in going one step further and calling it a spyder?

      Also, will it chirp 3rd?

      I understand the shop's side of this - what if the tire develops some weird problem that's not their fault, like a bubble in the sidewall or something, the kind of people that will order tires off...

      I'm no expert on the finances of the German auto industry, but the fact that VW hasn't tried to buy that thing and turn into some kind of an ego-stroke makes me wonder what is going on there. Are...
