      suspension upgrades, good tires, lower and align.
      very little in the way of 'easy' additional HP from here on out.

      If he really likes it but needs a ton more go, consider a 3.6 swap. And...

      I dunno. A bike is cheap and ez to deal with. BTDT.
      A 911 is a big commitment, and a 128i is an awfully nice car.

      OTOH

      If you love 911s (assuming you've driven them and know what they're like,...

      I mostly ride SK/Exeter/Narragansett/Charlestown/NK/East Greenwich.
      Some nights after work I can ride in the Easy Bay area so Bristol/Barrington into SE MA like Rehoboth/Swansea.

      You do any...

      Anyone here own a DeLorean?

      In 1998, my cousin got one for his 16th birthday. It was a project car. His dad had restored Harley's (and was driving a new Estoril Blue M roadster at the time) so he thought it would be a nice...
    5. 1988 Porsche 924S..Give me reasons to or not to buy..

      Price?

      Neat cars. 944 mechanicals with the 1982 924 interior / exterior. Fairly quick for their day- zero to sixty in the low 7s and great handling.

      The biggest downsides are the older...

      Bump.
      Put about 400 mi on it so far. While I am going to keep playing with the stem / bar height, so far so good. I do plan on replacing the saddle with something a bit more cushy (like an Avatar or...

      Most people, young or not, are boring, mindless simpletons with tons of class anxiety/envy and all kinds of strange ideas about what is important in life. Only an @sshole or total idiot would be...

      Should have taken the 7k either VW or Ford were willing to give me in trade for my 08 Mazda3 last May, and bought a new 2013 GTI or FoST. Instead I've put over 4,000 dollars into the Mazda3 since and...

      What I most remember from my last drive in a boxster 2.5 was this: how impossibly sloppy, cheap, and loose it made my corrado vr6 with fresh shine racing suspension feel. The boxster was a 2 year old...

      Thinking of buying a ranger...am I crazy?

      How about a frontier? I am sort of selfishly asking bc I kinda like those early aughts ugly ones albeit with crew cab and six ft bed...always wondered how they stacked up.

      I love my 94 ranger but...
    13. What does everyone here think of the new MK7 GTI?

      Hipsters do not spend 25 to 30 thousand dollars on a car.

      Frankly, at this point, the term hipster just refers to aesthetics or fashion, not anything substantive. Similar to how there was a...

      Convince me not to buy a Mercedes CLA 250

      No car enthusiast, or certainly no *driving* enthusiast would take the CLA over a GTI.

      The CLA is a cynical slice of 1984 yuppiedom. Boring and terrible people must love it.

      Get the GTI.

      1992 VW Corrado SLC. bought on my 21st birthday in May of 99 (against everyone's wishes. I had a MINT 91 8v GTI at the time). A few days later I realized JWelty/the watercooled archives/CCA were NOT...

      Probably something to do with a bit of culture clash between some VW and Honda factions. Not that it was a conscious thing, mind you. But the visible Honda crowd was well, more street/urban vs the...

      I've been here since 1998. Registered in May 99. I saw the massive sea change in who VW enthusiasts were. It really did happen with the mk4. The Mk4 was a lousy GTI, no matter how fast you could make...

      Chive is like VICE for norms, crossed with Buzzfeed. Not worth getting upset about, though.

      Ha ha. Well, I guess what I meant was I could deal with driving my 08 3s another year or so but I've been itching to replace it for a year already. Not quite convinced the FoST or GTI are right for...
