      When we say $0.80 that means it's 80cent per liter. There are 3.78liters in 1 US Gallon so:

      $0.80/L = $3.024/Gallon. So yeah not such a hot deal for regular gas.

      Going the other way. I've...

      A lot of the garages are like that around here (maybe not to that extent) but they paint lines to show where studs are so you can easily nail things into drywall and hang heavy items without a stud...

      Agreed with this.

      If 5000lbs is going to be towed often I would look for a vehicle that's rated to tow 6500lbs at LEAST to be safe. Remember that tongue weight also plays a role and needs to be...

      Yup, half of the engines will blow up by 60,000 miles, modded or stock (if you were to believe NASIOC).

      I had a 2013 for 3 months. It was a love hate thing. I loved it with little traffic...

      Seems to me that the new Civic 1.5T isn't that far off GLI in terms of acceleration. Considering the Civic runs regular gas and to get the full HP on the GLI you have to put the premium in, the...

      BMW prices haven't really moved all that much in Canada. I bought a 2006 BMW 330i in 2007 for $51,000. 335i base price has been around $50k since it came out in 2007. EVO MR started at 52k in...

      VW has always said for max performance use 91. Cars run fine on 87 in most scenarios. Reason they are changing to 87 is because everyone else recommends regular now. Ford does it too yet they...

      This is what I told myself when I had to dig under layers of carpet/lids to get at mine in the E46 sedan. :laugh:

      1.8T in the Golf is still rated at 199ft/lbs. So how is that engine different than one in the Jetta 1.8T?

      As someone who leases a lot, my only suggestion would be that if you end up with something like a Toyota or Subaru (personal experience) you may want to consider selling the vehicle after 3 years...

      Here's my bench racing contribution. Seems the Civic is quite a bit faster than Golf. In fact that 94mph trap is really high for this class of car.

      They dropped the price mid model year in 2008-2009. I bought a GTI and 1 month later they dropped the price on it (January). So I'm sure going up in price can be done mid year too.

      C&D got 12mpg overall and it's slower than Ram Ecodiesel. They mention it weighs 7280lbs... That seems extreme.

      We have a Crew max TRD OR 2014. It's my first truck and while the F150 and Ram look better outside (IMO, I love the looks of the Ram) we chose the Tundra due to much better pricing/lease numbers and...

      There is no excuse for a 240hp/258ft/lbs sporty sedan not to be faster than a Civic (non si) :laugh:

      2013 STI, got it new and got rid of it after 3 months. Leased it so the only thing I was out was the 3 payments and 1/2 of the transfer fee ($200).

      If you're under mileage nothing happens. Your car may be worth more in the end than Residual value in which case you could sell it and pocket the difference. I've done this with 2 Subarus and...
