      Good question. I'll echo your statement on my Focus ST. I'm only at 25,000km and things are definitely not the same as they were brand new. More rattles and creaks. Every time I take it to the dealer...

      Yeah, pretty much over it. If I want a car to do something better, I start thinking about what car I should own, rather than how I should change my current car.

      I can still get down with the idea...

      When are we due for an all new Cayenne on a new platform and everything? I still love these things. When I drove a Turbo I was very impressed with it.

      Tail lights are miles better. I'd rock one...

      See, when I was 21-27 I was a pretty right leaning young man. After all I live in the conservative, oil soaked, wild west of Canada. I was always "Less taxes!!" and "I don't need your help!" and...

      Yeah, I dislike everything else in Lexus's lineup right now based on its styling, but this thing looks boss to me. The grille works. I'd drive one. It's styling would certainly turn a lot of heads as...

      I still get tempted by a 997 C4S. I would love to use one as my DD 365 days a year. I always love it when I see people driving their sports cars all the way through winter. There was even a 911 with...

      Only interested in that kind of power/torque if it's being pushed though more than the front wheels. I know it has an LSD and all, but i'm sure it would still be frustrating. If they can work this...

      A coworker brought in a quote for a new A3 from our only Audi dealer. At the bottom, the pure profit fees cracked me up. They wanted $500 on top of the freight and PDI to Detail/Clean the vehicle...

      Ehhh, I sort of did the same thing selling my M3 for a Focus ST and its a bit of a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" situation. I like the higher MPGs of the focus as a daily, the low end...

      Currently Here. Edmonton, Alberta. I love this city's river valley. In summer its spectacular.

      The shops I talked to cited the fact that the extra heat you talked about often lead to clips/hoses/plastic parts breaking while trying to work on things as well as the cars often being hard to...

      Lots of Forester XT recommendations, but I can't say I'd recommend it. I'm selling a 2005 for my brother in law right now and when I picked it up from his house and drove it home, I thought it...

      I'll agree that cheaping out on turbos is not smart, but this guy is obviously pretty mechanically competent from his other thread. If he still finds the car terrible to work on, that probably says...

      You live in Calgary. Get an Oil & Gas job and make 2-3 times what you would ever make selling cars, have better hours, better companies, better customers, better benefits etc.

      People can spend their money on whatever they want, but I can't even fathom paying that kind of money for something that I actually consider to be a piece of **** regardless of condition.

      I wish...

      Of the ones that I know, 50% of them.

      I guess I just don't share the same responsibility to mitigate what I consider to be acceptable risk. As long as you're riding your bike in a safe manner,...

      So what do I say to the multiple fathers I know that ride their sport bikes to work every day?

      I would say either YOU aren't OK with the risk of riding a bike, or you should really get one if you...

      Threads like this are so weird to me. As long as I'm spending my own money, after we have taken care of the common expenses? Nothing. My money is my money, her money is her money.

      I guess things...

      Leasing one of these is getting more and more appealing. It really does come down to the used E90 M3 vs M235i question. Though the M235i would definitely cost less out of pocket over the course of...

      Agreed. The best thing I did to my E46 M3 was go to a 275 square setup from the standard 255 rear and 225 fronts. The 275 square was much more neutral, less under steer and great front end grip on...
