    Autoblog: New Mitsubishi USA chairman has batshit insane first task: revitalizing the brand

    LOL i think its hilarious that the salesman is trying to sell the benefits of that system in the video and he actually sounds enthusiastic about it

    2014 Subaru Forester

    Yeah because it makes so much sense to buy a compact crossover with a utitlarian plastic dash and materials when you are in a market for luxury 7 seat midsize SUV (mdx). Back to the Forester. I think i read somewhere that the new 250hp direct injected engine will be CVT only, kind of a bummer.

    What should I know about a B6 A4 1.8T AT before buying?

    Are german cars just as reliable (or close enough) as their japanese counterparts over there then? I always wondered the same thing too, I always see people on this forum with mid 90s BMWs, Mercedes, and Audis and they seem to all okay with decent amount of miles on them. On the flip side, I...

    I love the domed sapphire crystal. It makes the watch look more upscale and it has a nice blue AR coating like breitlings. I bought the watch already modded, but according to the seller, the sapphire is from yobokies. As for time, I would say it loses about two minutes a week, or about -15sec a day.

    News: Volvo ending production of C30 in December

    I have to disagree with the interior. I know its already a couple years old, but it looks incredibly dated and boring. It does make sense that they are stopping production though. Since the biggest quality of the car is its style, it would make sense that after a few years the cool-ness of the...

    News: Volvo ending production of C30 in December

    Thats very interesting, because I would think that the GTI would have a much more luxurious feel to it. I say think because I will admit I've never actually sat in a C30, but when I last sat in a GTI it felt nearly identical in quality to the last generation Audi A4. I do see how people would...

    Bedding brake pads/Brake pad options

    Wouldn't yellows be too aggressive for the street? I have used green stuff before and they definitively stop better than stock with less dust and no squeals at all, even in the cold. I have akebonos in my car now and they are eh...only slightly better than stock.

    News: General Motors Is Headed For Bankruptcy -- Again (Forbes)

    You do know that the US government made money on some of the bank bailouts right? Not saying its right or wrong, but our bailout of AIG has netted the US government 15 billion dollars. This does not count the 8 billion dollars worth of outstanding shares the government still has in AIG stock...

    News: Volvo ending production of C30 in December

    hah in new york, I dont know anyone with somewhat wealthy parents get a used bmw. Most girls get a brand new C-Class/328i/A4 while alot of the boys get a 335i/G37; also brand new. Don't even get me started with the 20 year olds I know with brand new M3s, C63s, and Porsche Cayennes. Back to the...

    Im not a biggest fan of how they look, but casio gshcoks are supposed to be very strong. I know that the top of the line "frogman" models are actual diving watches used by real divers. Speaking of divers, I just got a new everyday watch that I'm not too worried about scratching up. Its a SKX007...

    The dilemma of buying new cars vs used (secondhand) - opinions?

    I actually know someone who does this, except he buys nice cars. He scours the forums for the best deals on evos, G35s, and other cars that are in high demand and then deatails and does some maintenance work on them. Sometimes drives the car for a few months, other times he just flips them with...

    The dilemma of buying new cars vs used (secondhand) - opinions?

    I also think it has to deal a lot with the car you buy. For example, My TSX I bought new at 27.5k after some cross shopping and haggling. Today, I think if it were to sell it i would get around 24k. I think that if I were to buy a used 2008 TSX back then, I would have paid around 23k and now it...
