Oooh, nifty. My brother has been contemplating one of these for a bit. I’m gonna send his this link to see if it’ll push him over the edge.

I took my slightly scruffy ‘09 128i in for the airbag replacement last week. The service advisor and techs seemed pretty enthused to see it actually. 2 of them told me to hang on to it forever as it’s pretty much the last of its breed (small, relatively right, manual, N/A straight 6 coupe) and one of the salesmen gave Read more

The temptation to trade my WRX and 128i for an M2 was already strong but goddamn, that colour might be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.

I think weekly is probably the most I’d aim for, given the pace of good content these days. Don’t put pressure on yourself to make it happen, you’ll tire quickly if you do. If it does become a reality, I’ll help however I can. Read more

If you (or someone else) does want to resurrect the best of Oppo posts on a weekly/whatever basis you have my support. I can probably find and freshen up the template I used for lead images and share it.

Agreed on the STI, I’m hoping with different cam profiles, a bigger turbo, premium fuel and maybe a bit higher compression they’ll be in the 325-350hp range. Read more

Have you driven anything with the new FA24? It’s pretty lovely actually and is different than the 2.ol we have, it’s not as high strung. It runs perfectly well on 87 because that’s what it was designed to run.

The WRX requires premium - the owner’s manual says it can run on 87 if there’s no other option but it will indeed run poorly. The new Outback XT only requires regular gas, premium is not necessary or beneficial to the health of the engine.

Nope. Meant to run on 87. This is pretty much a requirement in my car shopping as both my current cars take premium. Read more

It needs to be for me to consider it worthwhile over an F150 with their much bigger discounts. I don’t have my hopes too high that I’ll get it below $37k but they know I won’t buy it if it’s not a price I’m happy with because I don’t absolutely need to buy a new vehicle.

I’m looking to get an XLT Ranger crew can with the 302A “luxury” and tow packages for $37k pre-tax or less so the Ranger would be a good chunk cheaper and much more sensible (and boring, one could argue). Discussions started around $40k with me at $35k so we’ll see if I can get it to what I’m willing to pay.

Well, here I go looking at ZR2s again. On a related note, how long of a drive is it from Toronto to that dealership?

Very slim. Mondays are busy on the farm so I’m usually not done before 4-4:30.
