      Dang it, I'd volunteer if it weren't for the Bay Area requirement. I've done a few efficiency challenges in the past and had Wayne Gerdes teach me a lot. I'll have to look to see if local dealers...

      I've always wondered, is this a relatively new regulation? There are a few vehicles where the distance between the DRL and signal seems to be less than 100mm, yet the DRL doesn't shut off when the...

      I drove home using my OEM fog lights because the Morimoto ballasts for my headlights were both failing to ignite the bulbs.

      Warranty does not include shipping to Canada. I replaced one under warranty then the other started acting up a month later. Will just put up with the light in my dash, don't have much confidence in...

      Mixed feelings about the Morimoto electronics. Most people seem happy with them but my ballasts were recalled for sometimes failing to ignite when it's cold out, and now my CAN-bus harnesses have...

      Sounds like a BS excuse. With FWD, I bet it's got a good amount more space inside than the claustrophobic X1. Unless people shop primarily on exterior dimensions and not usable space :confused:

      I remember those D901s, lots of trips to and from university on those. Slow as heck but entertaining to hear it strain against the weight and deep snow, and always comfortable with the old school...

      Only the hybrids are planetary, think the new Corolla is the conventional belt and cone system.

      Don't focus so much on keeping it in EV, it's not gaining you much and may be detrimental to your mileage. All that EV energy has to come from somewhere, and the energy path from the combustion...

      Very curious to learn more about this new 3.5L. Atkinson cycle engines are efficient but are kind of weak on low end torque. Looking forward to seeing its fuel economy and power ratings. And being...

      Quasi related, heard Neil Peart on the radio today talking about some of his motorcycle adventures. He's quite well spoken and interesting to listen to.

      Who does it need justifying to? I prefer consuming less energy and polluting less, I like being able to take road trips without having to fill every 400 miles, I enjoy the turbo torque, it was...

      Pretty much any reliability report on here would be anecdotal no matter how many miles are on the car. Best to go with large sample sizes IMO.

      Prius is *the ultimate* in fuel efficient and reliable. Up to you to determine if you find it comfortable, you should really go test drive one to see. It meets 2 of your 3 criteria better than...

      Pretty much. Though I usually put on the all seasons for a few months to pretend that it's summer.

      The Thrashers may make the playoffs this year. New coach seems to be implementing some good...

      For NVH reasons, I generally don't exceed 75mph in my Golf when I have winter tires on.

      I try to ride like I drive. Stop at stop signs, signal turns, etc. If I want to be treated like a car then I should act like one. In SOME cases though, I will intentionally break the law if I feel...

      Our car had to have its boots replaced once. After I heard that, I always believed that our car had some Fred Flintstone propulsion method, where the engine operated a set of mechanical feet (which...
