      I know that car's owner. :) He keeps improving it little by little, though he has kept the look you see here. It's currently in pieces getting a fresh engine.

      This thread exposes a case of cognitive dissonance where perceived social class conflicts with actual dollar values. The Tahoe or F150 is "blue collar" so when it costs as much as something they...

      The IS250 that this replaces had a 6MT.

      The Aisin AY6 it used isn't strictly a truck transmission, GM uses it in passenger cars as well (Cadillac CTS, Holden Commodore V6).

      There are a lot of different grades of leather beyond that.

      What people usually think of as "real leather" in a car is usually top grain. It has a finish coat added to it, but it's primarily one...

      It'll run perfectly fine, and won't damage the hoses the way it would on older equipment, but it'll still gum up over the winter. Just the nature of E10 in a small engine.

      Consumers want ice cream that tastes good. The manufacturers want a product that has a longer shelf life and more profit margin, so they replace cream with all kinds of gums and stabilizers, to the...

      If you bought it more than 4 years ago it was probably not lithium ion... they do not lose capacity rapidly the way the old NiMH or NiCads did.

      And if it does, you can just swap out the battery....

      :thumbup:

      The 228i is the only BMW in the US that even interests me right now. There's just so much fussiness as you move up the BMW model hierarchy. The 228i by virtue of its market position...

      Once I was behind a truck like that. The dresser was tied down but the drawers weren't - I saw them open and close a little with each movement of the truck. Got the hell out of the way. Then when we...

      All of this is normal for a kit car, or really aftermarket fiberglass bodywork in general. It sucks, but with the low volumes they produce, they can't get the consistency of mass-produced composite...
