    Ownership Verified: My 2003 Alfa Romeo 147 GTA

    Speaking from experience, as I have now owned an Alfa 156 for many years, you should simply ignore it and it will start working again within two weeks. At least that's how it was for me. Or try standing next to your car and hold the unlock button for ~10sec. then release it and try...

    Ownership Verified: I've Gone Full Madman: Alfa Romeo 156

    Really nice car and those wheels are in my opinion the best choice for the 156, they suit the car great. When you get the timing belt changed have the mechanic take a look at the connecting rod bearings as they are prone to fail after 150000km (google tells that's about 93000 miles)... so maybe...

    Big Test for Jaguar Land Rover Under Indian Owners

    I am happy to see JLR doing well and would love a XF in the future. But quoting the article: "It will make low-emission, 4-cylinder petrol and diesel engines - a sharp contrast from the giant 2.2 liter powerhouse that gives the Jaguar XF luxury saloon its growl. " I almost fell off my chair...

    My 1989 Mercedes 560 SEC

    That gear-knob looks somehow wrong? Is it an aftermarket one? Otherwise I tip my hat to you good sir for preserving such a nice car. And it looks much nicer without the speakers

    New M car in the garage...

    Your car is just gorgeous. I hope I will be able to buy one myself someday. Still the best M5 ever.

    Question about various fluids

    Well, autodata states 5W/40 semi-synthetic oil for your car and all climates. Usually turbocharged cars have a lower low viscosity to protect the turbo on cold starts. Here`s a print screen:

    Roundabout from hell in Germany - including spikes for bikers

    Well MacGuffin, yours sure does look "nice" and made me laugh but it seems there might have been a slight misunderstanding. I didn`t mean it as in the shape of a bottom but as in it`s just big, considering it`s in the middle of a roundabout. But here is a pic. Now I realized it even has ramps...

    Roundabout from hell in Germany - including spikes for bikers

    This google maps stuff is amazing. Going round the roundabout you posted in the link you can observe at least three seasons: spring, summer and winter. Oh yeah and I like the roundabout. Nothing wrong with more adrenaline rushing through your blood on the icy morning commute. Well where I live...

    I like the fact that the "aerodynamics system" uses a front hafl spoiler. Must give it at least 50 additional hp.

    No 56k: Parked like an idiot

    It sure is a rare sight the renault 18. But the number plate suggest that where he comes from the roads aren`t salted that much and the pic was taken in Koper, a city by the sea that very ralrely sees any snow or winter conditions. Maybe that`s the reason. Or some magical rust-repellent spell...

    No 56k: Parked like an idiot

    Well I usually don`t take pics of stupidly parked cars because I see too many of them on a regular basis. But I have never seen something like this: the funny thing is that is has been parked like this for two days now.

    Car number 2. VW Bora.

    How do you even manage to drive around in car this low? Are you not afraid of losing your oil pan somewhere. Respect for driving so low.
