It’s like people who jump at trading in their lease early because the “dealer will pay the rest of it”.  Of course they will because they’ll turn around and dump the car - meanwhile you paid a downpayment based on 36 months and you’re out after 30 only to re-up for another 36 month lease...

Right? Surprised this wasn’t recommended.  You don’t have to worry about negative equity, he apparently drives max 7,000 miles / year and is into driving a status symbol.

Having watched almost the whole series - I think this is a great idea. Honestly, for people who aren’t even remotely into cars it’s an excellent watch - amazing to see what goes into making one of these videos. Also, there’s a bonus - Ken Block provides evidence he’s also human!

It’s their business if it violates zoning codes... How come everyone else has to abide but he doesn’t? Additionally, does he sell parts from the cars? Do people come and take parts from the cars and give him money? Is there traffic that’s generated soley to look at and take parts from the cars? Now we’re getting Read more

The municipality I work for has gotten pissed about cars in parking lots several times. Two key instances were after Hurricane Sandy when damaged cars ended up EVERYWHERE. Any place that had a few acres of pavement got cars and plenty of places that didn’t just simply cleared the trees over night and brought in Read more

Many people lease in the US - so it doesn’t matter

Long Island, NY. These cars are born on the roads of Sweden - they can handle a little white stuff. I will admit that I had a LR Discovery sport for when it gets really nasty...

haha - I never really smelled it, but my wife (it was her car for the first 8 years) hated it. Glad it’s gone... was going to get a tdi wagon but... we know why that didn’t happen. Ended up with a ‘16 v60. Only wish is it was a polestar

I was wrong - confused it with a past VR6. At that time, the mechanic told me to under no circumstances get a V6 VW ever again. Well, the 2.5 5 cylinder jetta I had after was fine, but the ‘03 1.8? ....

Town’s got my back! ...so I had the 1.8T, but my comment RE: taking the engine out is in reference to my VR6 Passat I had. I confused the two, so everyone’s right? Read more

The water pump went. But in classic German Engineering, they hide the POS water pump so that the only way to change it is.... that’s right, take the engine out. So, while you’ve got the engine out, might as well replace the timing belt right? Read more

Growing up in the Mpls suburbs I had a friend with a Fiero when we were 16. He showed us the car shooting flames and how you didn’t need a key to start it... (I was not impressed, the girls on the other hand...)

BUT, you know you’re fixed costs because you don’t have to ‘sell’ at the end of your ‘lease term’. Plus, you have a rock solid warranty and don’t have to worry about dumping the car before the warranty wears offer, among other things.

Driving it in the sand seems like a terrible idea... great way to get your interior filled with sand/dust. Yes I know the Jeep is a “drop top” as well - but uh, not really the same as a 50,000+ “luxury” car.

Well many cars today have a key fob with a detachable metal key that unlocks the car if the battery dies. Those things are so small and flimsy (and not really a good way to get into the car as I believe it sets the alarm off). I think he wants like a "valet key" in addition to the fob. I had a VW Jetta that had a Read more

I think he wants an analog key IN ADDITION TO the standard fob.

Honestly the wagon was the first one that came to my mind. Maybe do a badge delete (ya know, get rid of that stupid "name") and replace it with 123?

I work for a Long Island municipality and we have laws regarding storing vehicles (boats / trailers / RVs) as well as unregistered vehicles on one’s property. I believe you cannot have any unregistered vehicles within your front yard/driveway area and are limited to two unregistered vehicles on your property. But if Read more
