    Interesting looking car in Turkey that I can't ID

    EDIT: nevermind, found out it was an easily identifiable car by one of the few Turkish manufacturers after some quick googling mods can delete this thread

    Motor Trend Best Driver's Car (2009)

    There's some cars missing (IMO) in the test like the M3, Viper, Elise or Exige, 911 and/or GT3. But it's a good, and long, read. I'm not going to copy and paste the whole 18 page article, but I'll post the charts and graphs for your viewing pleasure. Overall chart, the higher the bars are to...

    Ford Focus RS in the US

    This may not be worth making a new thread especially since the pictures aren't great, but might as well. I saw this in the parking lot of my local library. It was left hand drive and had a manufacturer's plate. It's a really kickass looking car in real life.

    Small Problems After Installing AVG + Spybot

    1) I recently downloaded the newest versions of AVG Free antivirus and Spybot S/D and I love their thoroughness. However, immediately after downloading these, I noticed that I'm getting more popups in Firefox than I was getting before. It's the usual ads for fake anti-virus software etc, but now...

    The Lolvo is making a whirring noise

    I started up my dad's Volvo S60 today and it makes a whirring noise that gets louder while accelerating. The noise itself isn't loud and if I had any music on at all I wouldn't have even noticed it. As far as I can tell, the car drives normally. I drove for a half hour this morning and it drove...

    No 56k: 2008 Meadowbrook Concours D' Elegance

    I went to the Meadowbrook Concours D' Elegance in Michigan two weeks ago and it was wonderful. If you like old cars you must go to one of the good Concours D' Elegances at least once in your life. I've only been to the Meadowbrook Concours twice, and it failed to disappoint both times. Obviously...

    Cadillac Seville STS

    How is the fifth generation (1998-2004) as far as long term used cars go? My friend is considering buying a later model with around 60,000 miles on it, the price is pretty low for this combination (lots for around $12K-$14K). I hear that the 4.6L Northstar V8 in the STS is quite reliable and...

    In the Shadow of the Moon

    I checked to see if there was a thread about this, and I didn't find any. In the Shadow of the Moon follows each and every manned mission to the moon made by the United States. The documentary reviews both the footage and media available to the public at the time of the missions, as well as...

    Which Watch Would You Buy

    Everyone here likes to play the "which car with this budget?" game, and lots people here are also watch aficionados. So if you could buy a watch for less than $200, what would it be? I've got a Fossil right now that I got as a gift 4 years ago. Over 35,000 hours of wearing time later (it was...

    Netware changing Windows settings

    There is probably a simple solution to this, but I couldn't find the answer with the mandatory google search. I recently bought a laptop and even more recently I bought a wireless router to be able to kill time on the internet. I notice now that there is no longer a "welcome screen" (Windows...

    Letters from Iwo Jima

    I just watched Letters from Iwo Jima last night, and i thought it was a brilliant movie. It's about the battle of Iwo Jima told from the Japanese side. Clint Eastwood directed and i think he did a fantastic job with it. I would say that it's the best war movie i've ever seen. Ignore those "this...
