      That is pretty bad that a new replacement part is not even available. Being someone who works for a supplier of GM, I know this is the name of the game... especially on a somewhat poor selling model....

      My old neighbor bought a $5k 2002 325i as a DD/winter beater type car. He said it was the best winter car he's ever owned (4 snow tires, RWD model... 50/50 weight balance really helps, compared to...

      Would never do it.

      I drive way too much and encounter way too much different weather here in Canada for it to be safe. Also, the 401 express highway where I live is one of North America's busiest...

      If it makes you feel any better... Chrysler is made up of a lot of Magna parts. These are used in GM, BMW, VW, Nissan extensively (over half of the vehicles parts)... To lesser degree in just about...

      Talked to a Chrysler dealer salesman a few months back... he said they hope to have one to actually show customers in 2-3 months. Everything that comes in, is a pre-sold vehicle. Said it has been...

      S80 hands down.

      -They are extremely reliable with the base 3.2L (even the turbo is reliable... but less to go wrong on the 3.2 obviously)
      -It's actually the most modern car of this group... the...

      330i ZHP (I don't know if they are AWD)... or a 540i M-sport... again, likely not AWD.

      Easy to mod and AWD and manual = Audi for this era of cars, not BMW...

      Why not spring for an E90 AWD...

      Nice car for the money!! The refinement from the more upscale models at least stays in-tact when you order the stripper model Golf. My dad had a Mk4 Golf CL (MY2003, this is one trim level below a...

      A very large deep cycle battery can supply about 600W for an hour... They do have quite a bit of charge.

      80A/hr at 12V (big battery)... This is 8A/hr at 120V. This is 960W/hr.

      Of course, the...

      8% increase over regular?

      If gas is anything like it is here in Canada... premium (91/93 octane) typically does not have Ethanol in it anyway... might be just as cost effective to just run 91 or...

      The first word that came to my head was 'yummy'.... first time I describe a Benz that way. I said it last time about the Jaguar F-type coupe.

      Never... my German made cars have never left me stranded. (Mk4 Golf TDI, Mk6 Golf TDI, B5 A4, E90 335i)

      My Mexican made Mk2, that did let me down once... a ground wire broke that powered the ECU....

      Many AWD systems are like this. This is one of the reasons why AWD was never offered on passenger cars for a long time (in addition to weight, complexity, size, cost, FE reduction etc). A full time...

      There is honestly probably something up with that fuse box... or your alternator, or the battery main connections to somewhere in the vehicle (could be the main terminal on the fuse block).... Sounds...

      Good for them.

      Hmm I like it...

      Kind of wondering why they will only be selling it in the Middle East tho... You'd think Billionaires in China, the USA, and other parts of the world might want one too. Maybe...
