I’m just coming back from a France/Italy vacation, with the trip starting out with Nice and Monaco. We dedicated our first Sunday to the Historic Grand Prix and exploring Monaco. They ran 10-18 lap races depending on the class, and had seven classes ranging from pre-war cars to the early 80's. More races, more…
Seeing the post by SharpSpeed led to me reminiscing about my days in Super Mileage at MSOE. Definitely the most fun and most rewarding thing I did in college, both to build the car and be lucky enough to be the driver.
I found this under the passenger seat of my 2001.5 Passat while lubing up the locking pin in the slide. It could be from the seat or it could be from somewhere else in the vehicle and at some point got tossed under there.
No, not classic questions about Audi, like why is my check engine light on, but questions about classic Audis.
With my 2002 M3 at 130k miles, and not knowing if the suspension had ever been refreshed, I decided it was time for an update. I wasn’t willing to spend the big money on coilovers and also wanted something that was similar to OE or a little better. After a little searching, I came across the Bilstein B12 Pro Kit on…
I would get this. It’s on my daily commute and for the past two years I’d turn my head and look at it as I drove by. Yesterday I drove by it and it had a for sale sign. I find the simplicity of the car and curves so appealing. (Hopefully link doesn’t get Kinja’d)
Saw this Friday driving home from work just outside Racine. I was getting closer and for the life of me could not figure out what it was. Finally I started thinking, “That can’t be an Alfa, can it?” He turned off and I spotted the badge, and sure enough. I’m pretty curious as to how it is here.
When great musicians pass away, I can’t help but think about how I wish I would have seen them in concert. With the passing of Chris Cornell, I’m very disappointed I never took an opportunity to see him in any of his acts the past few years.
The saga continues on the TDI and the replacement GTI. A quick recap, we bought a 2016 GTI to replace my wife’s Golf TDI. The TDI appointment is scheduled for two weeks from now.
My wife and I bought a 2016 GTI with the dirty diesel money for her. She said the only thing she doesn’t like is that it’s too easy to speed, which isn’t a terrible problem to have. I’m really liking the view in the garage now.
We’re moving forward with the 2016 GTI I posted about yesterday so I submitted the paperwork on our TDI to the VW claims site. In this process, I made two mistakes
We’ve taken our time with the TDI buyback waiting for a decent deal on a new (to us) car to come around. We’ve settled on wanting a Mk7 GTI and came across what’s basically my wife’s dream car. Heated cloth and night blue metallic exterior are the must haves.
You never know how much time you have left with them. A buddy of mine got into an accident this morning. He’s fine, his Golf R not so much.
There have been lot of posts lately on the front page about cars hitting turkeys, I almost became another one this morning. It came out from behind a guardrail so I didn’t see it until the last second. Video will be posted tonight.
Random thought I had this morning- What car goes through generation changes the fastest or slowest?
This past week I took apart the M3 to get access to the blower motor that has been squealing for the past 3ish years. Rather than putting it under the passenger side dash like everyone else, the only access is under the hood behind the engine through a little window about 10 inches high. It was a pain in the ass but…
After living in Wisconsin my entire life, I really should know that winter isn’t over until a month after you think it is. I’ll be putting winter tires back on my wife’s car today...
This is one of the most recent episodes of Criminal minds, Collision Course. The episode began with two car accidents with pedestrians getting hit. The drivers said they didn’t have control over the car as it took over driving for them to run down the pedestrians. Cue the lines that let me know that I was going to get…
This is probably preaching to the choir here on Oppo, but just a friendly reminder.
My friend has been trying to sell his Viper for a few months as he has purchased a Focus RS (hopefully I’ll get to drive it this summer). He has a very interested party that is now having second thoughts since he found a possible accident in the Carfax.
