I’ve been shopping for a Turbo Beetle replacement. I want an entertaining automatic(my wife has no interest in learning manual and as long as my 996 is manual, I’d be fine with a good auto for the other car), a little more space, something that can have a roof rack, and preferably 4 doors. I don’t want to spend too …
Has Audi ever sent over their dual clutch on a plebeian A4 or a6 model(non-S or RS) car to the U.S.A.? Wife is open to replacing the beetle with a bigger car/wagon(specifically mentioned an Audi) and I’d be open to getting an auto if I could bounce off the rev limiter if I please and get some quick shifts out of the…
Frustrated BMW owner goes to autozone, gets code, lists car on Craigslist. There is something about this that cracks me up:
First off, anyone have tips on what to look for on a 2009 328i x drive? There is one near me for $10.5k with 70,000 miles which seems pretty reasonable. Price seems high for the year but low for the miles. I think with a naturally aspirated 6, AWD, and a little more room and the ability to add a roof rack I would be a…
2 months ago I posted about a job I applied for in my organization, in the post I put a picture of a FoRS:
Tom answered a question about a couple of lease swap sites. I got curious and went to check them out. Low and behold this dealer appears to be all but begging people to take an ATS for 27 months at about 1/2 the cost of what Cadillac shows for leasing on their website:
Road and track did an article on cars that need performance versions. And although I agree with them; I also think some cars could use some stripped out base models. Here is there list:
I spent yesterday watching some DIYs and informational videos on B7 S4s and after watching how people pull the front end apart, remove sub frames, and dismantle their engines; I thought to myself “that’s what everyone makes such a big deal about, pfff.”
“We should get a van so we have could have a TV in it...”
So naturally I’m imagining the big raise and all the fun things I could buy with it.
I think ultimately whether or not(or how much) people like the 992 will come down to dimensions, weight, and so forth. It’s not like some cars where seeing spy shots is going to really push your opinion one way or the other. But, just in case, here are the best spy shots yet of the 992.
So unnecessary internet car shopping is at its peak. 135is cars are way too much coin, 335is caRs are all over the map, but m235i cars are plentiful and seem like decent buys on paper. Heard mixed things about the actual driving experience though.
And this interestingly specced red over blue at a used car dealer is one of them:
My brother has his heart set on a Subaru; he is shopping Imprezas and legacy’s. If I understand the FB recall right; if the vehicle exhibited high oil consumption before the end of the warranty period; then it’s covered by the extended warranty. If the vehicle didn’t show symptoms until after the original warranty,…
Yeah, that’s my post on Rennlist; yes I do think my IMS is failing; no my engine didn’t go boom(yet). I’m trying to figure out if I can get away with just replacing the bearing or if once the bearing wears this badly the engine needs a tear down(cause if so, uggghhhhhhhhhhh).
Turbo for your time
Two manual allroads for sale locally. Incredibly different ads, one has no pictures and reads:
My mother in law had her 60th birthday party on a big honking boat on the fanciest lake in the area. So naturally, I needed to drive the Porsche. I recently pulled my window regulator and had it repaired and then I put it back in and I also replaced a door latch so I can use the soft top and lockup my car. I drove my…
If a person wanted to get 2 U exhaust pipes cut in half (at the mid point of the U) and then welded with the 2 parts of the U at 90 degrees; where would be the best(cheapest) place to have this accomplished? I just want to bring the pipe somewhere describe what I want cut/welded and then go home and handle …
