      Doesn't change the fact that I still really want a B5 S4. But I'd get one as a second car, with the intent to build it from the ground up. Unfortunately, that's quite the undertaking that I...

      This is all good info. Definitely keep some spare oil on hand. I know mine is the 9th gen Si, but I still love it. It's not a perfect car (the radio turning up and down with speed irritates me, and...

      First gen Gallardo Superleggera. In grey, just like that one. Followed by an F430 Spyder.

      I love these cars so much.

      I've had two of them over the years, both '84 turbodiesels. The gold one had 412k miles and cost me $500, and the silver one had 318k miles and cost me $230. Rust was...

      Took this one mid-day on Saturday (I live in Springfield, VA, by Backlick Rd & Braddock, for those familiar with the area.). By the time it finished snowing, the Mini was completely gone. The back...

      I get 23 mpg in my R53 Mini, and I averaged 22 mpg in my old New Edge Mustang. It happens. Still prefer the Mini though. I loved the Mustang at the time, but I've grown to become very fond of quick...

      Yeah, I still can't get over that color, it's incredible.

      Reminds me of a deeper, richer Dolphin Grey found on mk1 Audi TTs and old Saab 9-3s. Of course, it sounds like a disservice to the McLaren...

      I'm 26 years old, work in marketing, and on the weekends I do event production at shows/concerts and DJ.

      I drive a british racing green R53 Mini Cooper S.

      Damn. This was a complete accident,...

      I do enjoy 911s, a lot. They're my favorite cars, and since the values of these things are going crazy right now, I find it very interesting to keep an eye on. It's all speculation anyway, I don't...

      More or less.

      The 993 sorta hit a the bottom of its depreciation curve at a rather high price point, and very quickly made the turnaround from "old car" to "collectable car" since the 996 was so...

      The 996 is kinda stuck where it is. It's backed into a corner being the least desirable 911 ever, and they've got the more loved, but still mass produced, modern 997 above it. I think we're at the...

      That's what I was thinking. They're great cars, but as I said, on a backroad, I'd argue that my Mini would be more fun. I don't think the 9-3 would be as fun, but in the end, they're both midsize...

      Don't worry about it too much. Modern ECUs compensate for lower octane fuel by retarding the timing and such. You'll be down on power a bit, the car will feel more sluggish, and your gas mileage may...

      I think it depends on the car. My Mini is a blast on backroads, and I've had a ton of fun in plenty of other FWD cars as well. This 9-3 however? It's just a bigger car, and it's not set up to be a...

      Yeah, it really sucks haha. I love aircooled Porsches, I've had two, but I got rid of both of them before the massive spike in values. So of course, right when I'm at a point in my life where I can...
