    Class, your homework is to plan the perfect murder.

    Shouldn't kill a person you can be connected to, hire a professional. When killing a person you can't be connected to, prepare by staking out the mark's routines and plan the time and place of the killing. Get a pistol of a specific type (unserializable), .22 is lethal enough at close range...

    [07x06] December 27th, 2005

    Also, regarding missing segments, where is the Restoration Ripoff Mini? Back in the end of season 5 in 2004, they said they'd have it fixed during the break and show it "next season". I sure as hell didn't see a restored mini in season 6, and by the looks of it it won't be featured in season 7...

    Audi RS3 coming soon!!

    The thing I've heard that there won't even be an S3. The TT Shooting Brake would inhabit the niche in the Audi lineup instead. There would be no sense having two competing sporty hatchbacks (S3/RS3 and TT SB). And at least the TT Shooting Brake's been shown in metal, by Audi, and the (R)S3's...

    What's your car?

    Sold my Passat, now got this Audi A6 Avant 2.8 quattro Tiptronic. (click for bigger pictures) Nothing like a proper quattro in the Finnish winter, especially after a FWD Passat 1.8T that just used all of the suddenly bursting turbo torque to spin the wheel with less grip. Thanks to Torsen...

    From Russia with love. The fastest armored 4x4 vehicle!

    4x4 is so pass?... What the modern businessman needs is one of these 8x8. 30 mm APFSDS rounds? No problem. Power is 360kW, torque 1,974 Nm. Machine guns, LAWs and automated mortar systems optional. And just imagine the size of the wheels you could fit under this baby :mrgreen: I saw on of...

    The Cayman's shortfalls will be undoubtedly addressed by Techart and other Porsche tuners. Both the RS4 and Racing Green segments made me very happy - my A6, due for delivery later this week - is at least a 2nd cousin to the RS4, and it's in pearlescent Racing Green :mrgreen: The guest wasn't...

    ?20,000 on cars...what'd you get?

    With the insane taxes here in Finland, my options would be a lot more modest for the around 30 000 euros. I'd buy used, obviously, because 30 k won't even buy a new Golf GTI (base price 38 000 e). For around 30 k I'd probably get one of these: 1999-2001 Audi S4 Avant 2.7 biturbo + chiptune...

    How to take the speed limiter out of a car?

    In a 1.8T tune the real-life speeds themselves seldom increase very much, you just reach the speeds faster. The stock brakes have been sufficient for my heavy road use, the track brings out the problems. The brakes work well for a few laps, but after 3 or 4, you really notice the fading on the...

    Scary ...

    We have that kind of tests here in Finland too. If I remember correctly, the first inspection is after 2 years, then again after 2 years, after that it's every year. Not sure if there is an inspection on the 3rd year, since I've never owned a car that young. The obligatory inspections include...

    How to take the speed limiter out of a car?

    Your 1.8T Jetta doesn't have an electronically limited top speed. Basic 150 or 180 hp 1.8T cars can't reach the 250 km/h or 155 mph speed the high-end models are limited to. Not sure about US Spec with tolerances set for lower quality fuel, but a 150 hp model shoud max out roughly around 220...

    Cars in New Zealand ?

    We're seriously considering moving to NZ with my wife. The only drawback is being in the opposite side of the globe from our families, but hey, they can afford to fly. The benefits are immense: - A lot nicer climate, no -20?C winter months (in Auckland at least), land that isn't flat and...

    BMW M6

    A member of the car club I'm in has bought one, he's currently driving around Europe with it. I'm really hoping to at least catch a ride in it on some occasion. Pictures. Looks like he's had time to take it around The Ring already...

    Seafoam! Cheap James Bond smoke screen!

    For a 24/7 smoke screen on demand, go for a diesel with mixture problems :D My dad's Audi A4 2.5 V6 TDI was tuned to around 210 hp 450 Nm, and worked fine, until... The free-flowing cone air filter let some rubbish through that whacked the MAF (mass airflow sensor) and caused it to give too big...

    Women drivers

    Can you find a source on that? I'd like to see what are the statistics based on. As I don't know the exact statistical methods employed here, I'll have to guess that the rate of accidents is per unit of time, not mileage. On average, men rack up a whole lot more miles behind the wheel than...
