I find it a little strange to see McLarens sitting outside on a dealer lot... even used ones are still $150k+. Woulda thought they’d all be in an air-conditioned indoor showroom.

It would also halt sprawl, encouraging denser living which might—just might!—encourage folks to walk or bike in their cities, to say nothing of public transportation.

Doug Demuro also had the free time to take advantage of the warranty, as well as being paid for his warranty experiences, whether via writing about it here, on Autotrader, or making videos on YouTube. Most people don’t have that much free time to go to the dealer every single time something breaks in their warrantied

I should have a Killswitch Engage shirt laying around somewhere... might be time to dig it back up. I still listen to them regularly though, they’re still putting out music and staying true to their roots.

This is the correct answer to the GT question. Proper 2 + 2 seating, large NA V12, actually useful cargo area, it ticks all the boxes aside from fuel economy. But if you’re in a position to buy a GTC4 Lusso, fuel economy is irrelevant.

Because it’s a cheap way to get into classic cars... have you seen what other 60's and 70's muscle cars are going for nowadays? The aftermarket for the C3 is huge, and for all the complaints about its handling, it still out-handled most of its solid-axled American contemporaries with its advanced (for the time) indepen

Bless Ferrari and Lamborghini for keeping the NA V12 alive in 2019... how many other NA V12's can you still buy new? I feel like most V12's are either dead or have gone turbo (which makes the whole V12 aspect pointless as it both silences the noise and dulls the feeling).

Do you pay much attention to the BMW N54/N55 tuning scene? Tons and tons of aftermarket parts available, and so many kids that are making like 700hp on stock blocks with just a bigger turbo and bolt-ons.

$950 entry fee? Jeez. I’ll just stick to doing burnouts/donuts in empty warehouse parking lots and speeding on deserted highways... the occasional ticket is still cheaper than one race entry fee.

I also love the fact that the X-wing has a hyperdrive, which truly makes it a fantastic road trip (space trip?) vehicle.

Yep, I’ve always had INPA for the older BMW’s and ISTA-D for the newer BMW’s. Pretty easy to get that software online.

I mean to be fair, I bought and rebuilt the engine on a 2001 BMW 540i with zero tools and zero knowledge. I had never even changed the oil on a car prior to attempting the rebuild, so I had to go out and buy a bunch of tools to start. It actually turned out really well because I took my time and followed the factory

That’s the best thing about BMW’s of that era (late 90's/early 2000's)... they’re easy to work on but modern enough to not feel like they’re lacking in anything. I also really love the early 90's BMW’s as well, like the E32 and E34, they were built like tanks and the parts for them are super cheap. My current daily

That’s basically how I started working on cars— I bought a 2001 BMW 540i (same E39 generation as the M5 in the video) and decided to fix it myself to save money. I quickly realized that I enjoyed working on cars, so I kept doing it, and now I have a shop where I fix my cars, my friends’ cars, and customer’s cars.

I mean, most of the staff responses to the guy’s question were silly (aside from the Land Cruiser, which is always a solid choice). So I gave my input, but not in an entirely serious manner. All I’ve ever owned have been BMW’s and Land Rovers, so I don’t actually know what reliability is.

That’s how I like to buy my Range Rovers. I bought both of mine non-running, one with a busted transfer case and the other with a bad fuel pump.

That’s why I mentioned the warranty. And also, I’ve owned two Range Rovers with the far less reliable BMW engines (a 2003 and a 2004) and I’ve never been stranded or inconvenienced by them. I feel like their unreliability is definitely overstated by people like Doug Demuro (who bought the worst 2006 model that was a
