      That's great if the e-Golf works in your situation, but this and the Volt fit my needs far better. I too wouldn't want to pay more just for the 'pleasure' of owning an Audi. While I'm sure the E-Tron...

      There certainly are circumstances that make it practical to do so. If you're getting a new car within the next 6 months and need tires, why spend $500.00 when it won't help the trade-in price? You'd...

      Now that you mention it, the '55 Porsche...

      Now that you mention it, the '55 Porsche Speedster had an optional heater so that it would come in under $3,000.00. It was $2,995 (perhaps $2,999?) if I remember correctly. :)

      I've had naughty thoughts about putting a 5 speed and supercharged 3.8 in my folks' Intrigue.

      Wasn't the Pontiac available with a stick? Would it be a bolt-in, save the (easily modified) console?...

      You seem a bit behind the times.

      European performance cars are far more likely to have a manual in our market than in Europe. Why? Because we still want them in our performance cars, but the...

      Like the Olds, it's a stone reliable drivetrain. They look pretty good, too. :thumbup:



      Excellent. :)

      You're right it is tighter than the GM sister cars, but it'll be soft compared to his Taco!

      Your last remark is good, if you can find something like that. For cars of that vintage I usually...

      Yep, the drivetrain is extremely robust. I know they had some issues with steering racks.

      The rack and steering shaft are not interchangeable with its sister cars, except possibly as a complete...

      At the lower end of your price scale I'd recommend the '98 (and I think early '99) Oldsmobile Intrigue. It used that 3800 you mentioned along with that nearly indestructible 4-speed, so it's...

      Or radio. The only downside is that there doesn't seem to be a DVD slot, but that's not much of an issue any more.

      I still love the temp indicators in the middle of the vents and what looks to be...

      Hrrrmmmmm... A carburetor? Really? I could see it in an engine swap situation, but not here. :confused:

      Lose the wheels and upgrade that engine and I'd call it doable. Since it's not particularly...

      Also, do what we did with our Fit... Buy it on the last day of the year! :) :thumbup:



      That's a great deal, assuming they have A/C, which I think the base model now has.


      For a real...

      "Our editors found that all of these cars are of very good quality and performed similarly, so we recommend all of them, making our review basically worthless."

      I'd lose the hood pad if it were mine.

      Yep, I thought it looked like a very large insect after losing a fight with a shoe.

      Hrmmmm. I used a gel Ozium product recently. I'd switched to driving...

      Damn, that's nice. :eek: Tell that guy he has to spring for a hood pad. I'd imagine a generic one would suffice, as one from Mercedes would be exorbitant if it were available at all.

      Also,...

      For 20 grand? Quit yer bitchin'. :P :beer:



      :laugh:

      Sure, it wasn't enough of a mileage improvement for 28k, but 20k? That's a sweet deal, back seat be damned. :thumbup:

      Nice score!. :thumbup:

      You're lucky on that front, I'd have to pay... Errrr, I mean I will have to pay hundreds to do all of the seals in my doors, even though my parts are relatively cheap. I...

      OK, I think I see the problem...

      Carburetor linkage should be set up so that the link end connected to the carburetor is level with the throttle shaft and 1/2 throttle. What you'd need here is to...
