It’s awesome. Do it. It’s like driving a race car around.
Considering that the murder rate in Detroit is less than half what it was in the 80s, I’d say that you are dead wrong. Source: http://www.detroitmi.gov/Portals/0/docs/Police/Crime%20Statistics/2016/2016%20DPD%20Homicides.pdf
There are guns that are prone to discharge from dropping and as you note, it is a huge design flaw. And yeah, I cringe every time it happens in a movie. Also, +1 for the commentators for realizing that this is a design flaw.
I worried that I would regret it when I finally pulled the trigger. Seriously, I smiled for almost a month after picked it up and I still get excited when I see it.
It is my car. I believe I owe you a drive but I don't live in Chicago anymore so I'm not really sure when that will happen.
My Alfa is still worth $56k (from $60k) for trade in. I feel like that’s not too bad. I ran the same thing on a Corvette and it lost almost $10k. Also, a quick search of autotrader shows nothing less than $60k for the 4C still.
The article is on carbon emissions while VW was cheating on NOx and particulate emissions. If anything, cheating on NOx would improve your carbon footprint albeit at the expense of another pollutant.
Another example of the government helping, good job.
Good thing the earth rotates counterclockwise and goes around the sun counterclockwise.
Basically all of my car control skill I learned rally racing a FWD car. It made it interesting the first time I took my Alfa 4C to the track. It's worth nothing that the traction control was not happy with LFB. Now that I'm more confident that I won't be putting it into the wall, that's coming off next time.
The panel gaps are one thing. I mean, for a car that’s more or less hand built, it seems like the panels should line up better but I can speak specifically to the deck lid. Your friend isn’t closing his deck lid. The plunger that senses the lid being opened has too strong of a spring/binds a little and keeps the lid…
I have a 4C and I love it. There is one thing that Doug doesn’t mention in his column though, the paint. The paint looks gorgeous but it’s basically nail polish. It chips super easily and the white SMC underneath sticks out like a sore thumb.
I have a 4C and my buddies that are 6'2" complain about sitting in the passenger seat. I’m 5'10" but I like sitting close to the steering wheel so I have to move the seat up.
I’ve been on Jalopnik and related sites since 2013, as well as having been part of the rallying community, and this whole time, until now, have been assuming you were Alex Kihurani. I feel like an idiot. Sorry for the necropost.
The joke is that he’a a Bond villain trying to pretend that he’s not.
Fiat. They're actually a Fiat/Jeep/Dodge dealer. Unfortunately, I may need some warranty work on the paint.
I think I got invited on fb so I'll be up to date if there are developments.
