      We have three small two door cars. So...yes. Very much so.
    2. Poll: No problem, thank you for the kind words. My life...

      No problem, thank you for the kind words. My life isn't perfect, but when it comes to cars I'm living my dreams. :beer:

      As far as scary moments, now and then people will wreck but our club is...
    3. Poll: Absolutely; actually that otherwise would have...

      Absolutely; actually that otherwise would have been my first choice. Problem is the stock tire circumference on these cars is quite large (265/40-19 in back) and RS4 isn't made in anything that...
    4. Poll: Oh, I forgot to mention. There was a brand new...

      Oh, I forgot to mention. There was a brand new Giulia QV there. Actually never seen one at a track day before. Beautiful car, was running very strong laps and looking great doing it, I started to...

      Typically it's just an easy/funny way to say "mostly depreciated luxury car." Occasionally people here will get called out by the general public for being conspicuous consumers, when in reality it's,...

      Yep, those companies are restoring existing products as opposed to creating new ones. Think about replicas; you can get a kit to build a replica Shelby, but that's because AC (from the time) which...

      I don't know what the deal was when they bought the tooling but I'd have to imagine it was to make replacement parts and not competing vehicles?

      Lime Rock Park opened up again!! It's clear the track and club are both taking COVID seriously; there was extra instruction, a digital driver's meeting, mask policy, distancing markers, etc. I'm...

      I mean I love the ROXOR, but if I'm being honest, I love it because it's a cheap Jeep. I think FCA probably got reasonable justice here.

      I really do, yeah. They’re throwing lots of darts, not all of them are going to stick. The cars have “made it,” and generate tons of hype and interest, but by comparison the other stuff seems “also...

      Do you think their market share will increase to new heights? Yes, of course.
      Do you think their non-automotive products will create significant market share in those industries? No, I think those...

      Oh I get it, and I didn't mean to come off harsh. I just think it will be a considerable amount of the price of the car to keep those complex systems working reliably. So far there's about $16B...

      Rest In Peace Herr Mezger, you created some of the best sports car powerplants of all time. :(

      Free software is kind of a myth, even open source (which is awesome) it's more like "donated effort" software. Even if they're not paying licensing fees, they'll still need to support it, maintain...

      QFT. When I see an F12 or F13 I'm always taken by it. When I see the 8...I mean it's cool, but it feels like a 4-series size XL and not an Aston/S-Class competitor. I think that's the opposite of...

      Yes they are. Most of the expensive cars are probably dual income situations, but you also end up with some that either made their money earlier in their career or have family money. The silver...

      I work for a software engineering company, and we have something we call the 90/10 rule. When it looks like the R&D is 90% done, that means the commercialization of it is 10% done. It's not something...

      Well, the M3 trades some of the spontaneity and go-kart nature the 2-series has to get that practicality. My point is that once you've crossed that bridge, why not trade just a wee bit more of that...

      I would've voted RS5 but instead voted S4--I think it was Hawk's thread where the sloping Sportback roof isn't great for small kids. So that's something you might want to check out first. :beer:
