      As I recall, he moved Infiniti to Hong Kong (????) to establish it as some sort of "true luxury brand" and then decided to saddle all of its products with an incomprehensible naming scheme.

      Sound...

      My problem with Cadillac's new boss is that he seems to flit from job to job without ever really accomplishing anything.

      Great job he did with Infiniti. It's so much better off now that it was...

      The distinction between the insurance company's tattle-tale and the car's ECU is that the car's ECU is yours and any information stored inside is arguably your private data, whereas by voluntarily...

      That's a cool car, but with modified cars you have to be able to find a buyer that really, really wants those mods to maximize the sale price. So I don't know if ebay is the way to sell that thing....

      I think she's gonna buy it. Her other cars are a Lexus RX and a Cube so it's not like a potentially unreliable Jag is the end of the world.

      Based on the guy that owns it now, I bet all of the...

      Thanks guys. The guy that's selling has a small collection of sports cars and it's time for this one to go.

      If all of the nagging stuff has been done, that could be a hell of a lot of car for $6k....

      One of my bestest friends is looking at this '99 XK8. 69k miles. Clean. $6k. It would be a 3rd car and she lives...

      Do the regular tuneup, also at that age on a J series you're due for a timing belt. If it breaks you're going to have real problems. Like, new engine problems. While you're doing that, check the...

      Have you talked to a Honda mechanic that knows those engines?

      Could be coil packs, they can go a little wonky without a CEL but if it's that bad you'd think they would have thrown a code. But...

      So this is what I heard about the CTR from an actual AHM guy.

      We're not getting the CTR, at least not with the 2.0 turbo and not with the Euro body. We're getting another Si coupe and sedan with...

      Yeah my S2000 HIDs destroyed my MDX's projector halogens, and with a drop-in kit it's not any better.

      I understand why some people think HIDs aren't that great, though, because some of them are...

      Sorry about your bro.

      With the roof, the rear discs and those seats I'm gonna say that was a Civic Si (may have been Si-R in Canuckistan) which are becoming harder to find in any kind of...

      My aunt and uncle have the current gen Maxima and that is a miserable, cheap, unrefined, depressing automobile. Everything you touch or feel or look at was obviously made to be as cheap as possible....

      Man I don't know how much of that shifter mechanism I'd cover up. Could you have some sort of plate machined to cover the exposed areas but leave most of the mechanism visible? It's hard to tell from...

      You see that a lot in salvaged ITRs that were stolen and rebuilt later by people on the cheap. Also, they could have been ruined in whatever flood it was in and that was all the owner could afford on...

      Meh, Adam Carolla did that in an M3. Didn't hurt it at all. I'm sure that Jeep is fine.

      I tend to believe things that Randy Pobst says. The weirdo fat neck-beard MT dude has no credibility to me, he's no better than any other the countless bloggers that know so little yet say so much,...

      Sooooooo - that thing is powered by lead acid batteries mounted under the rear seat?

      Seems legit.
