      The earlier ones didn't have a 1.4 turbo like he says - I wasn't aware of a change?

      I installed a set of Wet Okole seat covers in a MKIV golf for someone who travelled with a dog in the car often.

      They fit great, had airbag spots, and looked pretty good too. Most people didn't...

      I get questions about my Volt all over the place - at work, at the mall, at the convenience store, etc.

      I had a 'Whalen Shift Machine' on the Cooper S and it made a huge difference.

      It's really, really heavy though - and when it's hot it stays hot.... same with cold.

      Yeah, they're on the same platform, but they definitely drive differently. The volt feels a lot flatter in the turns, is much harsher over speed bumps, but is WAY under-tired compared to the Cruze...

      Brought the volt in today (just under 12k miles) to replace a bad charging cable and get firmware flash done. Car has been great so far, 12k miles and only 45 gallons of gas used.

      Yeah, I can consistently get high 30's - low 40's on highway / gas if I keep it to 65 or less. I think my TOTAL gas MPG is around 35 now, which involves some cold-weather mandatory running, etc.
