Mini wanted me to drive this so bad that they called an offered to provide me with a free inspection. I asked if I could have a loaner in the meantime. They said yes. This car isn’t great. I will never sell my Mini. It also appears that I will never buy another one.
Felix is at the dealer for an overpriced service and a warranty claim. They asked whether I needed a loaner. I started to say ‘No’. Then I said ‘Yes’. AMA!
I’m seeing a lot of S3 in this and that’s a good thing.
What say you, Oppo? Where does the hive mind stand on this issue? My car will rev-match when I downshift in Sport+ mode. On one hand, it’s pretty fun, sounds great, and makes me look like a way better driver. On the other hand, it’s one more thing that the car is doing instead of me, which defeats part of the purpose…
Woohoo! Meet Felix. After way too much time spent hunting for a 981 Boxster S with the options I wanted, I finally came across this example from Dallas Lease Returns. First of all, I want to note that this is the best dealership that I’ve ever worked with. Specifically, I bought the car from a salesman named Robert,…
What...the hell...is that? The back of the Camry would actually look pretty good, if not for that absurd “vent”. What would that even accomplish if it were real? I literally can’t wrap my head around this thing. It breaks up the lines, it’s impractical, and it’s just generally awful. Here’s another picture, in case…
But I guess there’s no time like the present, right? Married or engaged Oppos, how did you know it was time to close? Those who ended a long-term relationship, why?
But it does.
I’ll be at A-Basin the Week of December 17th. Getting excited as the snowfall begins. If anyone is around there it could be fun to hit the slopes together for a while. All about those meetups.
My belief is that hearing from varying perspectives, especially if they differ from your own, is of enormous value. If it’s uncomfortable, that’s probably a good thing. BUT, I haven’t found that any of the (former) Gawker Media sites are good for well-sourced news. Thus, I go elsewhere for “real” news and sometime…
Nice work, Jalopnik.
This is unreal. SuperSpeedersRob takes a detailed look underneath a stanced Miata, and it’s even worse than you’re probably expecting.
The hate is strong for the F-150 Limited that was written about on Jalopnik! Here some examples of the general reception and comments:
Made the Reddit Front Page. Perfect combination of incredible driving and funny (or not-so-funny) mishaps. 1:27 had me cracking up.
Today is not a good day for the portfolio of Ryan Frew. I know their earnings are rough, but I think it’s a big overreaction. Ford has been innovating effectively, has a brilliant current lineup, and has a squeaky clean record lately, in a relative world filled with Takata airbags and diesel scandals.
Would a Cafe racer make a good first bike, or would it be horrible? Why? Why not?
How long before we see that headline? <Insert Manufacturer Here> sues
software engineer hacker for releasing unpaid software update.
Shamelessly stolen from Reddit.
I’m thinking about buying a set for my Mini Cooper. The car is still on stock struts/springs/control arms, but everything else about it is prepped well for Autocross: Aftermarket rear sway bar/end links, aftermarket wheels, Pilot Super sports, poly bushings throughout, etc.
