Given that you have to have turned OFF traction control, fully turned the wheel, and then floored the gas, this doesn’t sound like an attempt at doing anything useful, in the same way that the Mustang comes with an equally “useless” “Line Lock.” It just sounds like a fun feature for enthusiasts from a manufacturer Read more

The point is that there isn't much financial incentive for a CEO to NOT fly a company into the ground.

How do you know if it’s the director’s cut? I’ve seen this movie, but it’s been so long that I don’t remember what version I watched. I found it on HBO Now, and it’s a “Special Edition” with a 2h21m runtime. Does that sound right?

I spent less than $400 on my GPU a few months ago... and I’m playing games at a relatively unnecessary 3880 x 1600 resolution just fine...

The BRZ always was, and always will be, a niche car for a specific type of enthusiast. A WRX isn't even on the same plane of performance when you compare it to what the BRZ was designed to do.

Had the original Note, Note 3, S7+, and S9 Plus...

...and having just switched to a OnePlus 7 Pro, I really don’t see myself going back any time soon. Sure Samsung’s software has some extra fancy features, but overall it’s kind of a bloated shitshow by comparison to Oxygen OS... which is unbelievably fast. At the end Read more

I never thought about this until just now, but given that modern vehicles often use a single HID unit that uses a moveable cutoff to switch between high and low beams, doesn’t that mean they’d meet that regulation even if they left the fogs on?

Why does Gear VR make the list of worst gadgets just because it has been superceeded by better technology? Gear VR was amazing when it first came out. I used it, and while it definitely felt "first gen" in terms of weight, and the screen door effect, it worked REALLY WELL and completely sold me on VR being the future.

Someone's gonna get fired for mounting the tail lights upside-down on these demonstration models...

Haha. True. Mine is a Series.Blue, so I just get shit for “overpaying" for a special edition, even though I paid several grand under MSRP.

If I’d made that comment, rather than be COTD, I’d just have been flamed by hundreds of “car enthusiasts” claiming I was only saying that to justify my shitty, slow, underpowered, overpriced, worthless, stupidest-car-ever-made, only-idiots-would-buy-that, there-are-so-many-better-options-for-the-price BRZ.

www.cars101.com is a brilliant website for anyone who wants to understand all of the nuances and features and changes for every year of every Subaru.

I’m still trying to find something similar for BMWs since my dad is looking at a new Z4, but I wouldn’t be surprised if something this detailed didn’t exist for any other Read more

And why is it so weak that it can’t handle being turned off? It should be able to handle being run in FWD perpetually. Read more

Their AWD systems are not what they used to be with CVT autos only sending ~10% torque to the rear wheels during regular driving. Read more

Yup, and your post telling me that I shouldn’t drive wasn’t condescending in the slightest ;)
