      I just had a pretty nasty cold. Do I qualify for a ride in the McLaren?

      Congrats, OP. I was thinking about picking one up myself. They're just so much fun for the money!

      My girlfriend's '08 Focus doesn't have interior grab handles or map lights. Also, there is neither a trunk release lever nor a handle on the trunk, so the only way to open the trunk is with either...

      Yeah, I certainly wouldn't kick that one out of bed. But if I really want to listen to music, even my relatively modest 2-channel B&W/NAD home system is going to blow away *most* of these high-$...

      Personally, I tend to think that the car is an awful place to listen to music if you truly care about sound reproduction. So, for me, a base stereo is good enough for NPR/BBC.

      Harris' assertion that the Golf R has a more technical, competent chassis compared to the M235i is really quite stunning. I think it says a lot about how good the suspension tune of the new Golf R is...

      Now that I'm 30, I'm suddenly tired of so-called "mature" cars. I'm thinking about ending my life-long addiction to German sleds in tasteful silver/grey/white hues and picking up a garishly painted...

      I honestly think there's some truth to this. I'd say that about most German car drivers. The cars just mask the speed so well that it seems like traffic is moving in slow motion unless you really...

      I haven't driven any of the recent electric-steer BMWs, but as a lifelong BMW enthusiast it is my experience that each new generation of BMW (even M cars) is more filtered and dull than the...

      The Germans, having succeeded in their pursuit of ultimate linearity and predicability in their performance cars, have also succeeded in making them a bit boring and too easy to drive fast. In this...

      How many videos are there featuring her? I have a feeling I'm about to learn way more than I'll ever need to know about working on Mazdaspeed3s.

      Yeah, but how much worse in the snow can they be than the stock Conti ProContacts? Those tires were awful (in really just about any road condition).

      Please post your thoughts on the Conti Extreme...

      QFT. The difference between the Mk6 GTI and the Mk6 R is that the GTI is fine in stock form, but between the upgraded engine internals, big brakes, stiffer suspension, AWD, larger turbo, and crazily...

      This video just got me looking up Evo IXs on Craigslist. I wonder how I'd handle owning a non-German car? Probably just fine, I suspect. ;)

      We're supposed to get some serious snow this week here in Minnesota due to some crazy weather system coming from Alaska. I'm looking forward to seeing how the Pilot Sport A/S 3s perform on my GLI....

      My 1992 318i had a weather band radio. My 1995 M3 appears to have the same radio head unit, but is strangely lacking the weather band feature. :screwy:
