      I never thought I would be happy to hear another Chrysler four fire up, but ó goddammit all ó I absolutely am happy for you.
    2. Similarly, without giving up too much of what I...

      Similarly, without giving up too much of what I was told, there is not price parity between the RS 6 Avant and the E63 AMG wagon; the latter is definitely the more budget-conscious of the overpowered...

      I have nothing to add here, other than I've spent far more than the $30 I did to pull the Carfax that outed the red car as a lemon buyback on things that have amused me far less.

      I've yet to see a mainstream insurance company that knows what to do with the Japanese VIN (EA11R116994, in my case), but Hagerty has the Cappuccino already on file and can not only process the VIN,...

      It'll be just like the original TCL get-together in 2004, just with more progressive bifocals, blood-pressure medications, and more mature retirement accounts. And fewer vandalized R32s.

      Just whatever you do, don't Bro Ro Ro down a hill, mmkay?

      That could be danger.

      Very true. MY house recently sold for $1.4M as a teardown. Not that it's spectacular in any fashion; it was just an all-original MCM 1950s piece that happened to be in the right neighborhood, on a...

      Oh, but sound is just one of the interesting aspects of the 930. Psychological health is another thing that it offers in spades. For instance, I may complain from time to time that parts for my...

      The bolts through the front hubs are because the pressed-in front wheel bearings of this generation have a split inner race like so:

      Nice! Good to hear a firsthand experience. I don't see putting more than 2500 miles a year on this car; it'll mostly be a garage centerpiece next to the Cubs. I have some terrible experiences with...
    11. 12" Small tires for even smaller cars. Do these even exist anywhere, anymore?

      In a burst of annual-bonus fueled optimism, I decided to import a Nissan Figaro, complete with all the little bits that make it sickeningly adorable, from the dealer-accessory lace antimacassars, to...

      I think that was the night that we met up for sushi in Atlanta, and I ordered something along the lines of the Hungry-Man Protein Quadruple Power Platter, and you heckled me mercilessly because after...

      It was. It really was fiendishly complex for a trucklet that sold in dealerships alongside the Esteem and the Aerio and the weird-ass Verona and a bunch of rebadged Daewoos that sold to people who...

      Slightly thicker than water. Unless you're salty; then it's mostly piss and vinegar and thins out considerably.

      Oh, hey, Dempsey. I was thinking I should re-register and post in this thread, so thanks for walking me in.

      A bit of background: The VTC actuator on the 2015-16 Honda Fit has a known problem...

      Right? Though it only counts if the sales manager at Doug Smith asks what "merde" means in a voice loud enough to be heard across the showroom floor.

      Not to mention that after 30 days of Forester...

      Well, yes.

      You have no dog in this fight, or haven't mentioned your heretofore unknown TDI ownership to this point, yet have the most posts of anyone in this thread. (link here) Yet you continue...

      Jesus Christ, will you two shut the hell up already?
