      Not enough for GTR money. I was thinking the same thing. Chef of a good restaurant? Member of a band? Inheritance? Lawsuit settlement? Maybe he just spent his life savings on the GTR.

      Very true. During my time in Austria, I ended up seeing tons of debadged vehicles. I had always thought it must've been a thing, so that explains it. This was along with the disproportionate number...

      You should really consider the new 2015 Mustang. At least check it out and drive in person. It seems to match what you're looking for, and will offer more power than your FRS ever did. I drove the...

      Yea, he probably rented the R8 through exotics in vegas which is an actual track event. Totally different experience/purpose. For cruising around on vacation, C63 AMG was a great choice.

      Really liking them in Guard Metallic, reminds me of racing green and goes well with the new design. Ford has really nailed the colors down on the new model. I also like the new interior and think it...

      Hit the nail on the head. The dealers' current business model will come to an end in a matter of time. It goes against an information economy, and now that there are services like TrueCar and you...

      Have you actually driven it yet? From what I've heard the shifter and clutch are fairly lackluster and let down an otherwise great package.

      Lease rates have progressively become more competitive within the last 3 years. There were good lease deals on the outgoing GTI..but VW is selling every MK7 they make right now so I expect there not...

      Which GLI is this? My GLI, stock, has almost no wheel gap. In fact, you'd think it was already lowered compared to most cars. My friend's new MK7 GTI looks like a 4x4 ride height next to my GLI. ...

      As the consumer you have the freedom to compare rates and do your research ahead of time. Sometimes the dealers are actually pretty competitive with rates as well. With so much available online, the...

      Everyone in this thread keeps mentioning the Mustang but anyone who shopped the two or actually had a Z knows that they don't really compare driving feel or dynamics wise. On paper the Mustang might...

      Talk them down. Most credit union financing offers GAP for a flat fee, regardless of cars (my local one was ~180 last time I looked). The dealer will usually start off at some multiple of the...

      There is already plenty of aftermarket for the V8/5.0, and probably cheaper to make faster as well. Aftermarket exists outside of 4 banger turbos, especially with Ford or GM V8s. The EB aftermarket...

      Wow, the EcoBoost test numbers are a big letdown. With supposedly 60 more HP, it only traps 2mph more in the 1/4 than the Focus St (252hp). 0-100 isn't too far off either. The 0-60 is OK, but...

      Based on how things are shaping up, a GTI w/ PP (once it's available) is an interesting value proposition vs. the R. While the R has a bigger turbo and will be decently faster, I don't know if that...

      I think it's actually better at being a "luxury" car, but maybe not a sports sedan. It's less agile and nimble than the G37 was. For me, that's losing the appeal of what the G37 was supposed to be,...

      Ok, we all get it- you had a bad experience, you hate forced induction, N/A BMW I6 is the only way to go, etc. etc. Give it a rest.

      They're not all "software engineers". Not even close. They probably have a handful of talented guys that actually do the tuning. Also, engine tuners are not really "software engineers" in the...
