      Just some ideas:

      -valve timing is almost certainly different between the two, and has a significant effect (at least from what I've seen using Ricardo Wave 1-D simulator)
      -obviously the exhaust...

      The garage and house damage are covered, my brother's cars are probably covered, but my cars didn't have comprehensive, so nothing there. My Fiesta ST was also in the driveway and the bumper and...

      I really appreciate the kindness, but this guy is spot on. Make sure you have an appropriate fire extinguisher with you when working fuel/ignition. Hopefully, you already do.

      Thanks!

      I've owned a 325is, 2.3-16, and 318is, and the 3.0L Verde spanks them all on fun. And the GTI improves on that :)

      Just an e30 cluster in the photo and an e30 325e listed in his sig. Or do you think it was his Mazda6 and perhaps he walked the note to his BMW to impress us?

      I'm 25, have my house paid off, I walk to work, and really do value the feel of a car over its capabilities. More than that, I like a car that I can drive anywhere with zero guilt and not too much...

      Did you buy one of the tools the guy on AlfaBB was making and selling?

      I walk to work and somehow I've put 20,000 miles on 2014 FiST that I bought last April. I guess that's what happens when you actually enjoy spending time with your family, who all live 500+ miles...

      Hey, looking for an 83 or 84 GTI specifically. White or silver, but other colors considered. Might consider a Rabbit shell to use for metal parts.

      Your comments on Top Gear are pretty spot on, but is a Carrera 3.2 anything more than a "slow car fast" car these days? My dad drives an 88 G50 3.2 and it's honestly neither fun or fast, just...

      Nice perspective.

      For what it's worth, I left my 2011 Jetta Sportwagen TDI and Fiesta home and took my 84 GTI on my last 6,000 mile trip. The windows down and engine strain made the vast boring...

      I have a Milano, which is essentially the same thing mechanically.

      People have mentioned rust and flimsy interiors. Interiors can be sourced, but rusty ones are hard to deal with.

      No Fuegos, actually! I think I mentioned that one of the guys at the shop daily drives the Alliance GTA, and the 18i wagon is in daily driver (or museum car) condition, considering the model. I'd...

      French/Italian cars out to pasture

      HushyPushy's 650S shots with the 2CV motivated me to share my latest round of photos of some French and Italian subjects in rough shape. I saw these when I was visiting my brother in Tennessee. I'm...

      Nice spec - I have that with a moonroof. It's pretty nice in the snow with snow tires.

      I love mine too, but I definitely don't think it's fun to drive in a slow car sense, like the MK1 GTI is. ...

      Curious, can you expand on that? Any data? And, I'm not being sarcastic - genuinely curious.
