That’s a huge deal, yeah. I’m still in school but I interned with a major pharmaceutical company this summer and it was amazing to see how far their IT security dept. went to make sure everyone’s personal and company resources were quarantined. Software has gotten better for that purpose, but those guys still prefer Read more

Came to post exactly this. Every single time I see one on the road I’m shocked by how outdated the design/mechanics are. They used to be kinda cool! Now, they’re slow, shitty matchbox cars.

Right? Not sure what it is, but Alpina wheels look awesome on Alpinas and trash on anything else.

What can I say? The pinstripe and chrome door handles are just so tasteful. Definitely an enthusiast’s machine.

Thanks for the info! Heard terrible things about VANOS on these guys, luckily the seller claims he had it replaced recently (though he says “upgraded,” so I’d still ask the question). Good to know about the timing chains.

Thanks for letting me know. Yeah, maintenance is something I think I’ll just have to stomach. I’ve heard people with nightmare stories and others who’ve had no problems at all. Definitely a risk, though.

So that’s the thing, VANOS looks like it was replaced recently... What other failures are as common/serious as that? Clutch, maybe?

Couldn’t get a picture (I was trying to impress some potential bosses who are not at all car people), but I saw an Alpina B7 parked two spots away from an Alpina B6 in an office parking lot the other day. Not sure exactly how rare the B6 is, but it was the first time I’d seen one in the wild. Two crazy pretty cars.

Would the Mazda 5 be too short? Heard great things about it otherwise. Aside from that, Transit Connect’s gotta be the way to go. Honda Element?

Nissan Versa. Tiny little bicycle wheels, anemic engine that’s ill-suited for interaction with 98% of cars in the U.S., and just boring as hell. I used to think old Corollas were the rolling manifestations of the color beige, but after seeing these on the road for years, the Versa has claimed that title in my mind.

Yeah, I gotta say I went with the Jet and after two days I felt like I couldn’t use it without committing atrocities to its admittedly outstanding finish—put a case on it after that. Read more

Yeah with a few exceptions I thought Views was a low point, if only considering how great Drake himself thought it was. Personally I loved NWTS; I still think it’s his best overall album to-date. Read more

I’m with you. Cap’n Crunch is the only cereal I’d willingly fuck up my mouth for. Which I do. Because it’s like eating sugary fiberglass that I love.

Out of curiosity, did you like Drake before this? I’ve been an unapologetic fan for years (despite not really understanding why), but I find myself agreeing with you here.

Just got the 7 myself, but I had the 5s before so it was definitely time. OIS is huge for me. I was at the Gateway Arch this weekend and was surprised to get some decent shots! Also, jet black or matte?

Love the shots. I know little to nothing about serious photography but I feel like it’s rare that I see close-ups that don’t look weirdly over-exposed.

I think with another inch or two in diameter they’d be bomb. Fits the whole AWD hot hatch aesthetic.

What’s interesting to me, too, is that the abysmally low reliability ratings don’t appear to be appropriately affecting their sales... Why are people still buying them?? For the average price point, how on earth is FCA managing to compete with the more popular Asian manufacturers?
