    EuroNCAP Assisted Driving Gradings 2020

    Generally whenever safety features are introduced the numbers improve until the lazy human gets well lazy and relies completely on the new safety thingy. I wouldn't be surprised in five years or less if they start to climb again.

    The "New Toys" Thread

    So ended up going to Micro Center yesterday and left with a 3600XT, Asus Tuf X570 Plus, 32 gig DDR4 3600 and a 1 TB Inland Premium M.2, reused my 1080 SC2, corsair H750i power supply and put everything in the Lian Li Lancool II case. Getting an OS in the computer was a bit of a PITA, my plan...

    Ownership Verified: 2016 Chevy (Holden) SS (Commodore)

    Took the car in for an alignment earlier in the week and this happened... Just because you car has a backup camera and sensors doesnt mean they catch everything. I am waiting on his insurance to call fortunately he told the shop owner and waited 20 minutes for me to get there. I also noticed...

    Routers for the year 2020

    Ubiquiti is pretty damn good, I have their UniFi gateway attached to our modem and two of their aircubes as repeaters. No issues with any of their stuff unlike the netgear routers which are complete garbage.

    Holden axed in Australia.

    As someone who owns one of the bastard Holdens, there are obvious changes from RHD to LHD. In the Commodores case outside of the headlights, wipers and dash GM also decided to change some of the electronics. Thats right they changed some stuff for the US spec cars. The infotainment system being...

    Jeep Gladiator Sales Low

    The die hard Jeep people at work are not impressed by the looks they say the proportions are off, they want nothing to do with it. It is growing on me but the bed just seems out of place.

    We like the new Explorer minus that damn grill which is barely tolerable IMO when blacked out like on the ST. The grill and the asinine infotainment screen mounted in the derp position are probably going to drive us to get the Aviator when we get rid of our Edge.

    Holden axes Commodore

    SS and Caprice sales wouldn't have done anything to help keep the plant open doubling SS production from 14-17 would have put them just under 30k cars. They needed domestic sales in Aussieville and the population basically abandoned the Falcon and Commodore for econo boxes from Asia. Had they...

    Holden axes Commodore

    I am up to almost 40k miles on my SS, the last real Commodores really were great cars it is a shame they screwed the pooch so bad getting the word out not just in this country but down under as well. I always find it funny when a car is taken off the market all the fan boys come out bitching...

    I get it a lot of people do not like it but at the same time there are a lot of people that would rather have the interaction. At the same time there is a ton of inefficiency in the robocall systems as well. The majority of the time I pound 0 until a human gets on the phone and normally I am...

    I figured that out after his first email on Saturday, if you are a salesman worth a crap you will answer questions better than flat out refusing a quote and not asking further questions. This morning I checked their website and the car was gone so either someone bought it between Saturday...

    Fair enough but if someone requests a quote either in person or online I am expecting a quote in the response not the same pictures they have on their website and a flat out refusal of what I consider a reasonable request for an out the door price when the customer has already informed the...

    We have been kicking around the idea of trading in the wife's 2010 Edge with 163k miles on the odo. I found a 2019 Explorer sport for a pretty good price at a dealer two hours from here so I sent a request on their web page last night. This morning I get a text asking if it is ok for them to...
