    Cosmetic damage: worth fixing?

    I'm going to trade-in my car for a GS350 in a few week's time, and I'm wondering how badly this kind of cosmetic damage will affect the trade-in value. A friend of mine can fix it for around $700 (~$630USD) but that's only to repair and paint the bumper. A better and permanent fix would cost...

    Low brake pedal

    So, I went to have my car serviced today (1998 Lexus ES300), and I found that the brake pedal is very low when I step on it. The master cylinder and other hardware in the system should be OK since they were all checked, but the advisor did tell me that there was only around 15-20% brakes...

    Surge protection required for LCD TV's?

    I'm planning to get a new LCD TV in the next few weeks, and some people (and especially the salespeople at the shop) that surge protection is a must for these kinds of televisions; is there some truth to that? I know I'm probably the last person in this forum to get a LCD/plasma TV, so if I...

    Toyota Camry, 2007 or 2008?

    So I'm going to get a new Camry for my family (I'll be paying, but I don't get to drive it). I went to the dealer today, and the 2007 model is $3000CAD cheaper than the 2008 model. Both car are exactly the same. Which one should I get? And folks, there's no need to give me suggestions on...

    Need advice on choosing a digital compact camera

    I have no experience with digital cameras (other than my cell phone camera), and I'm planning on getting a compact for work purposes. It's got to be quick with as little shutter lag as possible, a good macro, and preferably 7 megapixels or more. The Sony CyberShot T100 seems to have everything...

    Need help identifying these BC license plates

    Hey guys, I don't know if I'm posting in the right place, but I saw three of these license plates in the past week, all of them start with the letters "CC" followed by a few numbers. I'm thinking these might be consular plates, but there's already one with the word "consul" on it, so I really...

    Is this a good deal?

    My friend's friend is selling his 1994 Mercedes S500 sedan. It's in excellent condition (like 90+% new), very few minor scrapes, has only 20,000km, never been in an accident, and well maintained according to the owner's manual (so I guess every 6000km). The guy is selling it for $20,000 CDN...

    Hey guys, I need some help and advice on getting a used camera. I'm thinking of getting a Nikon F4, and I saw one at the shop today for $700CDN (453.897 Euro, $605.50 USD). I know that's kind of expensive, although the camera body had only a few scratches on it. Approximately how much does a...

    Paris Hilton does it again.....

    She got caught by the police again!! This time DUI in her Merc SLR. I seriously think that the government should do something to ban rich brainless drivers from driving powerful cars; not that they will hurt/kill themselves, but they pose a threat to the innocent public!! Source

    Need help distinguishing a Ferrari Testarossa

    I saw a black Ferrari Testarossa today, but the weird thing was the side mirrors were mounted higher up the door frame, like this: But aren't Testarossas supposed to have the side mirrors at the corner of the window, like this? So is one a replica? If so, which one? Or is it just a year...

    Need help choosing a cell phone!!

    I'm planning to get a new phone as my Panasonic X700 isn't very reliable. I'm probably going to get a Nokia, because I've owned a few before and they were very reliable. I'm thinking to get the 3250, but there's no official date as to when it'll be available. I might be considering the 8800 as...

    Mercedes M Class engine problem??

    Hello, I've heard some of my friends saying that the Mercedes M Class engines can go on fire unexpectedly and will explode. At first I didn't really believe it until I saw one for real this morning. The fire department and the cops were blocking off a parking lot; at first I thought someone...
