I know I’ll probably get some hate for this, but there are, in fact, certain cars that benefit from a CAI or some modification to the intake system, due to poor design. Yes, automotive engineers are smart dudes with big budgets. But sometimes that budget, along with things like packaging, NVH, etc, mean making certain Read more

So you buy a $160,000+ car and a mere teenage number of miles later it’s for sale. You’ve added an aftermarket exhaust (why exactly? 500hp ain’t enough? to get around CA smog laws?) and intend to keep those gorgeous red aftermarket wheels that are a focus point of your selling photos?

And, I get to pick the new oven and cooktop. Also, my electricity rate is going to have to be as low as my gas Read more

They out-did the Bently Bentaga, and Rolls Royce’s SUV on the interior and exterior. And It looks better than anything actually in its class.... what Cadillac is slinging around as luxurious. Looks way better than the Lexus RX. Read more

Huh? The entire purpose of Borat, or every other sketch character of Baron Cohen’s, is to call out the ease of which people slip into prejudice, racism, or sexism. It’s... the opposite of a minstrel show? By acting like a racist, sexist, whateverist naif, he allows people’s true nature to be revealed. It’s pretty Read more
