      Please share with us the piece of automotive art that you own? Pics of GF/Wife would suffice too. :D

      This. I've been involved in 2 not at fault accidents (one of which resulted in a write off). Both times I called my insurance, gave them info on the other driver/car and let them do the work. Not at...

      Yeah, a dime a dozen in SF bay area :laugh: Live in Fremont up until last year. A freeway exit away from the factory. In my block there was a Tesla S and a roadster. True story :beer: Even here now...

      That's I've been saying all along. I was referring to the "work over time" comment. Not sure what you are disagreeing with...:P

      I am more impressed with all the WRX/STI times than the M235i. :thumbup: How is it slower than the STI yet it has more power and about the same weight (not to mention 2WD)? :confused:

      Well, 1 W = 1 J/s and 1 HP ~ 746W (depending on the type of measurement). So he's kinda right.:beer:

      Technically that's wrong. Horsepower is a unit of measurement (of power), not a measure. ;)
      But yes, power is the rate of doing work.

      It looks like you guys manufacture electric motors. Maybe he's hung up on the NEMA motor sizing which is generally true.

      Speaking of incompetent people, I've got some engineers that are hell bent...

      Remember, VW's #1 goal is to be the world's top car maker, not the produce the best looking cars. They said it themselves. So don't expect anything more exciting than a camry/corolla for the near...

      If you're talking about modern Honda's (say '00+), the only point I agree with there is reliability. Civic SI and Cooper S from the same vintage are roughly the same price (I actually found civic...

      For $15K, you can get a 09-10 Cooper S. Which should be more reliable than 8 y/o GP and would certainly be a great track car with some good rubber and probably sportier suspension.

      What should be mandated is an in car cellphone jammer. According to the NTSB, talking through BT is just as risky as holding the phone.

      Mankato by any chance? I used to live there in the early 00s. True story.

      You have family around. Why can't you stay with them? If they don't want to host you temporarily then it ain't family.

      And $30K (price difference between z/28 and boss 302 msrp) is a sh1t load of money too. Comparing these two cars is an exercise in futility.

      1. Keep the R
      2. Change job or work from home
      3. Profit?

      But in all seriousness, I'd be crazy not to get a Prius for that kind of mileage.

      Quick math, between a 24mpg and 48mpg vehicle,...
