      LOL good luck with that. Thin blue line. Cops obstruct justice ALL THE TIME. Except when they do it they chalk it up to incompetence and/or plead ignorance. "The dash cam was inoperable at the...

      Hard to say. It's really a personal preference kind of thing. When I bought my '13 GTI they only had 1 road hazard policy available. IIRC I paid about $800 for it at the time. I've used it twice...

      Props for the motor swap but given the apparent overall condition of the car I'd be leery. Would much rather have this motor in a SVT Contour.

      Saw one last night. Well, at least I think it might have been one. Or it might have been "just" been a V60 R-Design. Hard to tell because it was on the move. But it looked absolutely incredible...

      Yeah, and look how they pitched the Ford F-150 Raptor to the public. Marketing <> reality.

      Yes but I don't want to. Normal driving isn't the thrill that it used to be but if anything I want more cars and more space and more time and money to enjoy them all.

      Who said the Z06 was a track monster? You assumed it, but that doesn't necessarily make it so. I know very few people (even Porsche people) who run hard at the track in summer with no cooling...

      Thanks. After some research it looks like a lot of folks are recommending a passive preamp (basically just a volume attenuator) combined with a phono stage. Not sure I want that many components in...

      1st gen Sorento had body on frame construction. Sounds like they had to cut a hole in the hood to provide clearance for the motor because they literally dropped the body down over the frame. Old...
    15. PSA: Take pictures of your wheels before getting tires installed

      National chains are the worst. They have high employee turnover and poor management. Their customers are average, meaning they drive average cars (think steel wheels and hub caps) and/or they don't...

      This is why if you want nice stuff you must avoid regular auto service shops like the plague and visit specialists instead. In the past I've paid slightly more than average to have a trusted tuner...

      Which is about on par with the HRE wheels OP likes. That's cheaper than the BBS RI-D, which run about $9k a set.
