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

    I have the opportunity to buy a 2004 Audi A4 1.8T with automatic transmission at a really good price. It's a nice looking car, I haven't sat in or driven it yet, but the body is in great shape, the paint looks great and it makes me think the car in general has been taken care of. The car has...

    A good article... definitely recommended: http://www.forbes.com/sites/louiswoodhill/2012/08/15/general-motors-is-headed-for-bankruptcy-again/ What it boils down to is that this is still an opinion article, but there are a lot of great points and it should be taken seriously. Some great facts...

    Spotted a pair of rarely seen oddities on U.S. soil...

    Visited a very intriguing man's collection this evening... he was a mechanic who helped build and work on the cars that were featured in the movies "Mad Max" and "Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior" (or just "Road Warrior" as I think it is known here in the States)... He now works as an engine and...

    Rumour Mill: New Mk7 GTI with 260 HP? I just don't know about that...

    First of all, I can't see VW going from 200 HP to 260 HP. That's an extreme jump, especially for a car that is somewhat entry-level. I mean, the GTI is supposed to be under $30k. If they can muster that much power in a package for under $30k, more power to them, but I just can't see it...

    1973 Datsun 240Z Chump Car World Series Project

    During the spring, a friend and I decided to start on a new project to get a car up to race spec for the Chump Car World Series. You might be familiar with this racing series, but if not, I'll tell you a bit about it. It's very similar to the 24 Hours of LeMons series in that in that it is an...

    D Motor?

    Not sure if this is the right section to ask.. I looked at other forums but I couldn't find one that really matched my question exactly. I'm taking German at my university. I thought that as a personal project, it might worthwhile, and fun, to watch episodes of D Motor (or another German car...
