      I'm not wild about the zhps, they're overpriced for the most part (not sure if they'd fit in the $10k budget), and the alcantrara looks awful after 30,000 miles. Seriously, just peruse cars.com and...

      When you say "fun", are you thinking 0-60 fun, or sliding around a corner at 11/10ths on a twisty road?

      If its the latter, have you considered the Mazda2? They get great writeups, and they're...

      Hmm, that's not what I expected. The 255 section Bridgestone RE050s on my BMW tramlined like crazy, I hated it. I was thinking you did the same. You've got the OEM offset on the wheels, right?

      Sounds like tramlining. Are you using wide, sticky tires? Are you running any toe in the front? How much camber and caster are you running? An alignment can have a huge effect on how your car feels...

      I think the real obvious answer is more chrome. Maybe they could have a "chrome pack" and charge another $5000 for it. I think the ROI would be nuts.

      I love this build, but I'm not wild about that bumper. Unlike the other stuff on this build, it seems to be just for looks. Why no chop an oem bumper to fit the winch?

      Right, or the N52. I was just pointing out that issue isn't with the 1-series, it's the motor. It is really BMW's first attempt at a modern turbo/DI motor and they didn't exactly get everything right...

      That Nissan is clean, but I have a feeling by the way it's sitting that you're going to need new rear springs soon. It looks like they're in a reverse arch just sitting still with no load.

      The GM auto isn't really that bad. I prefer the manual, but the auto rev matches downshifts and feels pretty sporty. I also think the later builds (09+) are a little bit better put together than...

      I just googled that guy...that's exciting for sure. My BMW inner (or not so inner) fanboy comes out when talking about ride/handling balance, its awesome that he's coming to the table to lend some...

      Ah, I see you've been reading my newsletter. :D

      This would be awesome, but I'll believe it when I see it. Hyundai/Kia doesn't have a good track record with the whole ride/handling balance thing,...

      That's kinda what I was thinking when I read the thread title. My R6 hit the rev limiter at 16000 rpm, ( just like a tesla!!) and was smooth as butter. It idled at 1300 rpm when it was warm, 2000rpm...

      Holy ****, what caused the engine to need replacement?

      They're probably all owned by holding companies, so I would think that you'd insure them the same way any medium size company would ensure any asset, from a computer to a bulldozer.

      Sue him. You've tried contacting him directly and he won't respond, now take it to the court. That's what small claims court is for.

      If you don't feel confident enough in your case to explain...

      That thing is so weird! I kinda like it. Is it body on frame? Or is it just lifted for the SA roads?

      Barry, you're better than that. In my experience, when people cite their extensive experience, its because they don't actually know the subject very well and want others to be intimidated.
