E32 is a breeze, relatively speaking. The E38 adds more emissions equipment just to make everything more challenging, and there’s not much more room either. Read more

The early 4.2/4.4 Jag Rovers are pretty decent as well. They really started to run into trouble when they switched to the 5L engine. Read more

What year 750il? I recently did intake manifold gaskets, spark plugs, distributors, and PCV’s on a 1999 750il. It really wasn’t bad to work on.

I mean, both of my Range Rovers were better than that. They both had fully functioning air suspension, good running engines, good transmissions, excellent AC, etc. So they didn’t just do the bare minimum of running and driving. My “secret,” if you can call it that, is to buy the 2003-2005 Range Rovers with the BMW Read more

I’ve owned two Range Rovers and I was fine. Never got stranded, even with plenty of abuse and off-roading. Clueless people buy them and neglect them, and that’s what leads to the bad reputation.

Meh, it’s not that bad. I’ve done spark plugs on one of those in like an hour. Talk to me when you work on an N74 turbo V12 or an N63 turbo V8, those engines are the true definition of masochism!

I like his bit at the end about being an Iranian immigrant, as if that somehow excuses him from being called a racist. News flash, anybody of any skin color can be racist. And even if he truly isn’t one, those posts were incredibly insensitive and poorly timed— have some common sense before you post! Read more

There you go! I’m rocking a 1995 E34 525i, with all of 189hp. I put way too much tire in the rear (275/35/18) so it’s damn near impossible to break it loose, which means I can take corners at insanely fast speeds.

I mean, people still manage to die and kill pedestrians in these modern safety bubble cars, so that hasn’t changed too much. Yes, a lot more accidents are survivable now, but how many of those accidents are caused by distracted driving because modern cars are so boring and easy to drive? Read more

Manual transmission, somewhat underpowered naturally-aspirated engines, RWD, no traction control, and no cameras/blind spot monitors. Make people actually try to drive.

Profits > all, duh. If a few people have to die to make sure the American Airlines CEO gets a bigger bonus this year, then that’s just good old capitalism! Read more

There goes Florida, being a shining example of the human race... again. Unfortunately the people here in Arizona aren’t much better— I saw a picture of people gathering for a Trump rally in Phoenix  yesterday and almost nobody was wearing a mask. I also can’t believe that people cared enough to stand outside in 109º Read more

As somebody that used to work in web development, I wholeheartedly agree. I hate all the “smart home” stuff, and I want nothing to do with computers at this point. My home computer is a Mac Pro from 2008 that I keep repairing, my thermostat is a manual one, and all of my locks require keys. My car is a 1995 BMW 525i Read more

I could never justify owning a truck with how rarely I need to use one... I plan on putting a tow hitch on my BMW sedan so I can get a small trailer for the occasional times I need to move furniture or haul an engine around. Read more

Southwest is #1 for sure. Between California and Arizona, you can find just about anything you’re looking for, and it’ll all be rust-free and generally nice.

The BMW S54 is up there for sure... 333hp from a 3.2L NA straight 6, and it revs to 8k! It also has ITB’s, for extra race motor points. And unlike a lot of race-inspired engines, they can easily survive to 200k miles with regular maintenance. Read more
