      This winter again is probably going to be worse than average, but that doesn't mean I quite need winter tires.

      I like what you're going for... use a clean $1k car for the winter, freeing up your choices for a summer vehicle that you can just park for 5-6 months of the year, something like a C5 Z06 even.

      Cylinder blocks are going to be bored most often at whole mm increments, and pistons are going to be cast at whole mm increments (or in in the old days or for the odd American/English...

      The A3 and CLA have hopefully shown Acura how they should have positioned the ILX all along. The TLX's 2.4 / DCT drivetrain is a lot more competitive and less Civic. AWD would be an asset too at...

      The previous Colorado peaked at 6k units/yr in Canada, and the Canyon peaked at 5k units. Towards the end it was more like 2k-3k units / year, each.

      I'd bank on around 10k combined units for...

      The Motor Trend review was a $37k sticker auto with probably every weight-adding option. I'm thinking a manual PP 3.55 a little more reasonably equipped will give better numbers (and a better Figure...

      Comparatively, a 428i is a few inches shorter, 3,450 lbs (manual) and is rated 240/255. It's in the ballpark.

      Only $200 for anything resembling "surgery" from a vet is the part that's unbelievable. I think around me it would be more like $200 for the anesthetic alone.

      The only n/a V6s left are the Panamera and Panamera 4. The writing is on the wall for the next gen Panamera to either base in diesel or offer a detuned V6 TT (like the Macan S vs Turbo).

      Cayenne S is sharing a 3.6 V6 TT with the Panamera S (420hp) and Macan ("400"hp Macan Turbo). The 3.0T (supercharged, Audi engine) is only a part of the Hybrid and E-Hybrid drivetrains.

      iTunes Match. $25/year for cloud access to every non-iTunes song you have (up to 25,000).

      Also, there's lots of $0.69 songs on iTunes, $6.99 albums, etc.
