Are you willing and able to censor the front in subsequent photos? You’d be doing those of us with the ability to see a real solid if you did. Read more

This is amazing and I adore it. Can I submit the fuel gauge in (some?) P90 Volvos as a 2nd place? The gauge displays in gallons rather than fractions and I love it. When I first bought my 1998 V70 XC I glanced at the gauge and, incorrectly, assumed the gauge was showing voltage then proceeded to crap myself when I

Basically any jellybean crossover in a generic color (silver, white, etc). If car people can barely tell them apart, I’m guessing the authorities would similarly ignore them.

“A.Barth” has the correct answer, but I’d say overall it depends on the person and cars. For me, 4.5 seems to be the sweet spot. 4 is too few. 5 is too many. But they’re all needy European cars so... that might be my problem... Read more

Speeding aside, I think part of the problem is we’ve all forgotten how to drive. Seriously after six months of being holed up in the house, I am a significantly worse driver than I was in February.

Can we get a trigger warning before showing the front end of any new BMW? I was scrolling through and suddenly felt my soul leave my body. Gotta prepare someone for that...

Back when I had a green Scout, I really wanted to do the thick fake turf in the back to replace the carpets. It seemed like a silly solution to a silly problem. Ultimately ended up being cost prohibitive. Read more
