      :beer:

      And more EV adoption to come. Sure, there will be lulls when gas is cheap, but the onslaught is coming.

      It's also on a public forum, so there may be other people reading it who don't understand the tech nor its advantages. I'm trying to point out the foibles with someone who claims to want their mind...

      The magnetic drain plug is holding little bits of piston ring and cam/lifter, which is perfectly normal upon startup and why the oil and filter needs to be changed in short order.

      I'll say it...

      Oh please. The engine does not "kick in at highway speeds".

      Under extreme load (such as passing on a hill) the engineers wisely decided that the engine should be able to directly add to the power...

      So it's a numbers matching salvage car...

      Huh. Who knew that was a thing? Certainly not me. :laugh:

      So buy a Honda Clarity. Drive around/commute on electricity and road trip on gas. The extra that you spend on having a gas generator is more than made up for in running costs.

      If I don't get a car...

      Oof. That looks like it actually left a freakin' dent. :(

      We build 'em to drive 'em though, right? It's part of the deal with actual use. It's worth it, at least to me. :beer:
    8. We only have tentative information on the...

      We only have tentative information on the European release of the Golf and know nothing about the release of the U.S. release, so I wouldn't count on a 2 year lease making the grade. You could extend...

      In general I suppose that's all true. I couldn't help but think of my friend's situation, which was a known car, known water level and it was all known to be stormwater runoff (no sewage). Without...

      They're small cars, can't you put everything behind a half wall and still have enough room to hang out? Wait... Are you a hoarder like me? :laugh:
    11. Fair point. :) :beer:

      Fair point. :) :beer:
    12. What both of you are missing is that the current...

      What both of you are missing is that the current electric vehicles fit more lifestyles than there are electric vehicles. It's moot whether they'll fit 90% of the needs of individuals since they can't...

      With fully buttered tiles, right? If memory serves the guys who have done that recommend fully covering the backs of the tiles so they're better supported. As I understand it even dropped tools don't...

      Yes and no. If the water was fresh water and didn't submerge the car, but filled the carpeting with water then it's salvageable if you gut the interior, including the seats.

      A friend of mine lost...

      Neither you nor your friend is "more" right. You just have different viewpoints/requirements. As long as the crash structure and safety systems are good then your buddy gets a better car for the same...

      The pros do it because it's cheap, is "prettier" and hides imperfections.

      "Look, your quarter panel was off!"
      "No it wasn't."

      That sounds pretty good, actually. :thumbup:




      Aaaand that's where it all falls down. At least it does most of the time. Stevo12's example notwithstanding. I've seen body shops take two wrecks...

      I'm still looking forward to more! :)
