    Switched to S4

    Had an ongoing issue with my left foot, likely aggravated by stop and go traffic lead me to start considering a trade to an automatic transmission.

    Honda Civic R

    Hmm. It looks like a crossover. The Accord crossover. So not very sporty.

    What's the most EFFED UP movie that you've seen?

    An honorable (dishonorable?) mention would go to the original Oldboy (Korean version). Such a jacked up twist.

    US spec 2018 Tiguan Revealed

    I wonder why the low power output? Maybe it's for fuel economy or that they're going to offer an uprated variant?

    Fiesta ST vs. MK7 GTI. My test drive review and opinion request!

    It's probably more about the drive than the features, right? Less numb feeling, I'd bet.

    If you could have any other Mk, what would it be?

    Did you ever have that awful top vent "diffuser" rattle? Drove me crazy. But yes... great car.

    If you could have any other Mk, what would it be?

    I'd go for a MKIV R32. I like the way those look and sound.

    Just sharing my 340i

    Ordering Wheels

    So this happened sometime last night, which sucks. Now I need to get a new set of wheels. I'd like to run 235 40 18s. I'm between 18x8 and 18x8.5. I know both will fit fine, but are there any real benefits to going with the 8.5" wheel with that tire width in mind? The weight difference...

    HVAC Vents sticking

    From time to time when starting the car and turning on the fan, the upper vents will not open. Changing the fan setting (floor, face, defrost, etc) and the fan speed does not fix this. Eventually, the front facing vents will open up. Does anyone else have this issue or "feature"?
