      There are two of these that race in ChumpCar. For the record we're supposed to run $500 cars. lol.

      My dad gave me a $5,000 budget for my first car. I didn't want a POS, so I asked him if I could have the $5,000 and add my own amount to it to buy something I wanted. A deal was struck and I saved up...

      More obvious headlines: Man who shot himself in the head ruled at fault for his own suicide. More at 11.

      It's got 14,000 miles on it -- if it hasn't been washed, it's a definite possibility. I've seen it happen after around 1,000 miles without a wash.

      That MIGHT not be blood. I've seen some new Passats secrete some weird brown/black mess in that area after many miles of road use.

      Pretty much as soon as they were broken in, within 2-3,000 miles. I only got 7,000 miles on the set and replaced them with well over 50% tread left because I couldn't stand the noise.

      These tires are amazing in the rain but they are the noisest tires I've ever owned. Recommended for a loud sports car, definitely a no go for a cruiser or sports sedan.

      Exactly what I would have ordered instead of my S5 had it been available with a manual.

      Congrats, beautiful car.



      Is that a serious question? :confused:

      There are a couple crucial differences.

      1) Most DD stories you hear on the R8 are the 4.2, which is the same basic engine as in an RS4/RS5/A8L and S6. While these aren't super reliable engines,...

      Oh and let's not forget the $30-50k bro dozers and expensive Jeeps that are plaguing every high school in the south. My local HS in my jurisdiction has a school-sanctioned truck day where all the...

      The salt in here is hilarious. You can get into a MK7 for like $25k. I knew kids who had BMW M3s and Audi S4s in high school. :laugh:

      Also remember that the OP didn't exactly tell you where he...

      It was an '11. About 6,000 miles I think, and no issues at all. That car went away when the Atom came. :)

      Having driven both a previous-gen V10 R8 and a previous-gen Viper ACR, I'd agree with the comments stating that the Viper felt MUCH faster, even if the R8 was faster. I didn't drive the Viper on the...

      From my past GT-R experience:

      1) Transmission replacements with new units run in the neighborhood of $12,000. If you find a used one obviously it'd be much cheaper. (EDIT: That's just the cost of...

      Glad Porsche came to their senses. This car, if retaining its principles of being lightweight and NA, will never be the fastest Porsche, so it makes no sense to limit people to an automatic. For...

      But their sales figures are climbing.

      I agree that Audi's turn toward more angular styling is somewhat more boring, but to say the new TT, R8 and B9 aren't attractive designs isn't fair. They just...

      This. Having this discussion in a GT4 thread is funny because if you're putting small children or dogs in a GT4 anyway, you're doing it wrong. Very wrong.

      An autonomous vehicle would be programmed to never leave the road surface. It's not going to accidentally take you off the road regardless of what is in the road. If the road becomes suddenly...
