Yeah, that’s a good comparison. Ancient chassis performance cars drawing attention away from a forgettable volume lineup. Or trying to.
Yeah, for sure. I’m not sure why they don’t consider Toyota when they’re fine with Honda (I do know why they don’t like Nissan), but knowing my dad as I do there’s some minuscule thing that bothers him about it. Like, he doesn’t approve of my Fiero (not that I need his approval) because the staggered wheels mean I… Read more
My stepmom has a last gen. 2018 I think? She likes it. My dad said they preferred it over the current CR-V and I don’t think the RAV4 was a consideration. Granted, they dismiss vehicles because of the most bizarre minuscule things, like the door handles on the CR-V were what made them not want one. As far as the… Read more
Never thought I would see Djrum on Oppo
Yeah, lot of trucks, lot of VWs, lot of Chargers and 300s.
I’ve only worked at a shop for a month now and the number of fairly new VW products that have come in needing four figures worth of repairs is ridiculous.
I tried to trade in my TL on a TSX wagon a couple weeks ago. My bank balked on the value of it.
That tire/automotive shop next door? Total coincidence. (Side note, we’re about a mile from an actual racetrack, and one day there was a drift event there and their tire machine broke. Guess where they came.)

I know it was in the bay quite awhile, and the owner was watching it carefully - apparently he’d had a prior car’s engine grenaded by a… Read more
There was one, just before Lewis made his pit stop.
Haven’t had anything this bad roll into my shop yet (I’ve only been there a month or so) but I’ve seen some sketchy cars that we’ll fail for inspection because they don’t want to pay for maintenance items.
I’m front end. All I touched was the key fob.
I’ve met quite a few, and most of them wouldn’t be welcome here.
No, he’d just be an insufferable douchebag.
Knowing a lot of JDM car owners, you’d probably be sick of him after a few minutes.
Yesterday at my shop we had a 1st gen E63 in for an oil change. It was just bought the day before by a young Romanian guy, and when he got it back he promptly went across the parking lot and did some burnouts.
That’s an oddball. That blue was only available in 00-01, but it has the 97-98 grille.
