    What to buy? '99 Fiat Punto vs Mitsubishi Carisma

    I should add that when I was in America I rented a Grand Mercury Marquis with like a 4.6L V8. I was really excited that this was the ticket to a fast and exciting ride, and it turned out to be really slow and annoying. I nicknamed it "the barge". So I don't want a similar experience with the...

    What to buy? '99 Fiat Punto vs Mitsubishi Carisma

    I should also add that a friend of mine bought a Renault Megane of similar vintage at a ridiculous price, maybe almost 50% of the price of the Mitsubishi. I should also point out that the Punto could be about 40% cheaper than the Mitsubishi... Edit: I could get a 2001 3.6L V6...

    New PC Build: mATX?

    Wow this sounds like a nightmare!! I thought that the CMOS jumper had to be left open, and if you closed it then it would reset the CMOS?? Why would you have to put a "cap" on it? I've never seen this before!
