      Learning something about yourself from the discipline of learning to drive a car, told beautifully in a similar style to Roger Angell.

      There's a plaintiff's lawyer who might win. Under contributory negligence, clearly the proximate cause of the accident is her state at the time of the incident. But this is not a negligence action,...

      The Car Lounge Bar Exam is open, again !

      I believe it is potentially an area where the product might be improved. Google "forseeable" and "Third Restatement of Torts", together.

      Very good idea.

      Legal editor who points out she felt the same way...then, she and her husband did it, a near miss.

      A friend's family had one and I rode in it as a teenager in 1978 or 1979. It was a beautiful car, I think with Rolls Royces they have to be kept a fresh example, and this just isn't one.

      Does not have "whitejeep crease" or "1989 butt" styling cues from first efforts, would not buy. :D:beer::beer:
    8. I would argue luxury cars are about performance-...

      I would argue luxury cars are about performance- not qtr mile, but the old idea that a Rolls Royce always had "enough" power when you needed it. This perception is very hard to squeeze from an...

      The regular Bluetech E250 non 4 Matic of course can run up 40 mpg+ in decent mixed driving with hwy, which is very close to what a Prius does when you have to open it up some. And the Merc will do...
    10. Legit discussion, I think. Some people have...

      Legit discussion, I think. Some people have questions. One thing to point out is you really rarely need to go above 3000 rpm in a diesel. The other would be if you flogged a Prius for awhile at...

      I thought the point of the earlier video was the noise and clatter of such an expensive car was bad while the car was idling, and to me it seemed they had isolated the cabin such that the driver did...

      At about 2:40 you get the answer - from the drivers perspective the car is very quiet once you close the doors. The 2.1 has only 195 hp, but 369 lb ft of torque which is very helpful in a car that...
    13. Well you raise a good point, this six cylinder is...

      Well you raise a good point, this six cylinder is housed now only in their sixty thousand dollar cars, the x5d and 535d. Audis brilliant effort is in the A6 iirc. I'm not sure if the bmw 2.0d 4 has...

      Turbo fsi engines also have hp fuel pumps and injectors. But the heat that causes so much trouble for turbo fsis is managed better by tdis. Turbochargers have gone with Diesel engines for a hundred...

      I meant I let it go to 3500 to 4000 Rpm for a few minutes here or there, not the whole trip. I don't think that uses much def.

      If you live in an area of the country where you can do a def and pdf delete the diesel turbo combo should be more reliable than a turbo fsi. Diesel engines do not have the complexity of petrol...

      Most of the stuff should be early on, before they remapped the software to cut back on the carbon. That mapping btw does hurt economy a bit. Me, I take mine out on long road trips and every now and...

      Still here, now 31k miles, had an AC belt change and finally swapped in Pilot Sports (threw an e90 spare donut in the trunk). No major issues in last year. Much better riding car w/o the runflats.

      Not in rural Florida, where I found that tank, a pump whose hose would have fit my tank, but whose gas was not highway ready. Look I drive a diesel every day and i know what I have seen. It is not...
