      This was in the news the other day, and I instantly thought of this thread. :laugh:

      I wouldn't have bought an automatic GTO even if it came with a 12 speed auto. I didn't make the choice because the auto was bad, I made the choice because I wanted to change my own gears. I'm really...

      You said the dirty filters were causing MAF failures. You didn't say anything about the filters being torn. You said that dirt was getting to the MAF because the vehicle wasn't being properly...

      Obviously, because it's made you completely retarded.

      Lap times aside, those both look like a hell of a lot of fun! I'd take either one with a huge smile on my face. :thumbup:

      Sounds more like experience to me. The two (age and experience) aren't always exclusive to each other, but it happens that way more often than not. :beer:

      But sometimes we all have to make our own...

      Typical failure mode for the hydraulic system...

      Typical failure mode for the hydraulic system isn't for the pedal to just stay on the floor though. I'd suspect the pressure plate broke, or the throwout bearing is stuck, or something else in that...

      I would probably go with the GT-R. I love the looks of the 911, and the way it drives, but like you I share the fear of owning one out of warranty.

      I would also consider holding out for a C7 Z06....

      It's a 30 year old vehicle. Things will go wrong. The 22-R in my RV is one of the most reliable engines in the world, but at this age they still develop problems.

      Look, I'm not against people...

      Ok, but you want to go home for the holidays, and the alternator is dead.

      You can go buy a set of tools, try and find an alternator, and then change it in freezing temperatures in the parking lot...

      Exactly!

      There are so many better choices for this situation that would accomplish everything except the "cool factor".

      Learning to wrench on vehicles is lots of fun....when you don't HAVE to....

      I tend to find Avis is more willing to do one-ways than some of the other major rental companies, so you might want to give them a shot.

      The **** they do. You just have no idea what you're talking about, which I think has been thoroughly established several times in this thread.

      I drive one because I need to cargo space for work, and occasionally need to drive into bad weather. My parents live in the mountains, and having only a 2wd car would sometimes mean missing holidays...

      :facepalm:


      A clogged filter doesn't pass dirt, it simply restricts airflow. The dirtier a filter gets, the MORE it filters. The filter on my GTI was perfectly clean when it failed at 45k miles,...

      They catch hell about being journalists because they've made that claim several times here on this forum.
