The problem with stuff like this has less to do with female lead movies and way more to do with the messaging and marketing of said female lead movie.

I have no problem with a FF movie where Letty, Mia, Ramsey, etc have a side gig to go address. Want to know how to do it right go watch Wonder Woman, Aliens, Long Kiss Read more

Well for one thing the XJ ran until the early 00s, but angle or no.. It’s easy to see that the new Wranglers are gigantic.

XJ = L:165.3" x W:70.5" x H:63.3" (101.4" wheelbase)
Wrangler Unlimted Sahara = L:188.4" x W:73.8" x H73.6"(118.4" wheelbase)

So it’s an inch short of being 2 whole feet longer. 3“ wider, and almost Read more

The new Bronco feels very appropriately sized. It’s no Jimny or Roxor, but it feels the same as a Wrangler. I’m heckin hyped.

That’s leasing though. Residual has 0 impact when buying.

Dealer is essentially taking it on the nose because they know they can off load your car for a set price at the end of your 3 years/36k. The dealer doesn’t care what you do with a car at the end of a purchase agreement. Also it’s worth saying, if people weren’t Read more

You have a car that is an outlier in the negative equity car equation. Mainly because A. you put down $7k, and B. people pay stupid prices for used Hondas and Toyotas.

Same for me on the permit and license (1993 / 1994).

Difference being I bugged the sh*t out of my Mom, who had wrecked her ‘86 Lebaron GTS Turbo 3 months before I turned 15, to buy a car with a stick shift so that I could learn the ways of 3 pedals. So she bought a brand new 1993 Dodge Daytona 5spd, as a result.

What on earth are you doing for $300 a month? I got my license on the day of my 16th birthday (learner on the day of my 15th birthday). Not to break out the “back in my day, up hill both ways” rhetoric. But, I had a job at K-mart working 30hrs a week (plus being a straight A student, and was in marching band). Bought Read more

It’s like people on this site think that once we get rid of all the A to B commuters and relegate them to EV Autonomous Public Transportation Bubbles, that the roads will be a blissful wonderland for us enthusiasts to hoon around on near empty streets in our gas powered stick shift Miatas well into the foreseeable futu Read more

Seems like a lot of mechanical and electrical complexity for a near negligable gain in efficiency.

The premise behind this reminds me of the absolutely terrible charging system we had on a 2000 Honda Civic. The concept was that the system used an ELD (electronic load detector). This unit reads the amperage load Read more

Politically leftest progressive state seeks to make policy continuing war on fossil fuel industry and internal combustion powered vehicles. Color me shocked.

It’s almost like “the future” that is electric cars would fail miserably without the help of politicians either outright banning IC vehicles (see the EU) or Read more

Except when your wiper transmission bushings are worn and the wipers refuse to actually park on the strips. Most of the time it’s below the strips, but sometimes it’s above. Man I need to fix that.

Being in the U.S. I have no point of comparison for the Polo GTI. When I was shopping a couple of years ago, the Fiesta ST was on the list, but God do I hate the dash board. The Recaros are sweet though. The 500 Abarth obviously because I bought one. But past that there are no other Subcompact hot hatches in the U.S. Read more

I’ve already started casually looking into it. It would look good parked in the garage next to my Harlequin Golf.

Is that a Polo “Joker” edition you have in order to get those seats?

I would have considered a new Polo GTI when I bought my 500 Abarth. And as someone who currently owns a Harlequin Golf, I actually am casually looking to import a Harlekin Polo 6N to park in the garage beside it.

Ugh... Everybody needs to go find and Audi designer and/or exec and kick them in the balls, because Audi is to blame for all our giant grille woes. Well them and the automotive press that universally praised Audi for going form this....

The B5 and B6 styling.

If only they’d make the damn thing a wagon again like it used to be I might consider one. But the minute they puffed the Forester up into a Trailblazer my interest went out the window. I’ll keep my SF Forester thanks.
