VW/Audi consistently have some of the best, if a bit austere, interiors in their respective classes. So...

They’re fairly common in the DC area as well, but go anywhere outside a major metro area and no dice.

To be fair to them, long gone are the days of Norton being complete garbage. Can’t really speak for enterprise level, but their consumer stuff has stepped up significantly in the past few years.

I have a Talbot.
A freakin' Talbot.
Rummaging the French countryside for parts is only part of the joy.

This whole nonsense about platform sharing only matters to needlessly anal "enthusiasts" who wouldn't buy these cars anyway. Common platform doesn't always equate to tarted up. Read more

Ditch the WD40 and use PB Blaster. It's broken some seriously tight bolts for me in the past.

PB is loads better than Liquid Wrench. It's gotten some seriously stuck bolts loose for me.

Probably had himself a Cobb short shifter. Those are life saving, ya know.

The Matra Murena. It's funky and French. Well, maybe it's not entirely a good or reliable or well designed car, but they're damn different. Three seats!

I see folks overestimating their skills every so often. At best it's embarrassing, at worst deadly. I just respect cars for what they're capable of. All of them.

This. Bravo. Everyone on the internet seems to have this notion that they're Ayrton Senna and then some. I recognize that as a driver, I'd likely overturn an unassisted F12 sharply down an extremely steep cliff. If that level of humility makes me less of a "man" to random 15 year olds on the internet, so be it.

I test drove one for giggles not to long ago. The 1.8T is eons better than the tired and entirely outclassed 2.5. The interiors, even in higher spec trim, leave a bit to be desired compared to my GTI, but it seemed like relatively interesting commuter.

Nope, which is a shame, because it really is a lovely gearbox. Most of the time.
