    Shit with Russia is getting real

    I routinely (like every second week) spend a few days in Moscow on business. Word on the street is: certain Russian elite are making a ton of money off the currency right now. Also all electronics stores are empty (everything sold out) in anticipation of inflation. Car dealerships in certain...

    VW Beetle 0-60 in 2.1 seconds

    Earlier this year at the Chicago Auto Show, Volkswagen showed us its latest foray into motorsports, the Beetle GRC global rallycross machine. Now, the Beetle is officially making its public debut, and while it looks a little different, it's still packing one heck of a punch. Now, when the...

    Crazy skilled driving.

    I just don't understand how this type of driving is possible, and this type of racing (150+ km/h with trees a meter away on each side) still sanctioned. I don't know what the crash/death rate is, but if it was high, I am sure this type of racing will disappear from the developed world, which is...

    Insane Golf 5 GTI Crash at Nurburgring

    Don't turn off traction control and you'll generally be fine. What's amazing is that you can pass and be passed anywhere, without any signaling. It really is one of those autobahn-type deals that will sadly disappear at one point.

    Insane Golf 5 GTI Crash at Nurburgring

    Insane Golf 5 GTI Crash at Nurburgring

    These accidents happen hourly on the track... doubt they would all of a sudden.

    Insane Golf 5 GTI Crash at Nurburgring

    I've only been to one other track other than Nurburgring, so my experience is limited, but Nurburgring is like a crash-hole compared to likely anything we have in North America -- the guardrails are really only like 2-5 feet from the track. Which makes it that much more amazing.

    2015 C-Class order guide

    Eww. Looks the same as their new CLA (I think?). So terrible - I think the GTI indash design is best.

    Ski/Snowboarding Thread

    Anybody ski/snowboard in Switzerland and have recommendations? I am taking an extra day on a layover in Zurich and looking to hit the Swiss alps. I will have a rental car, so anywhere within about 2-hr drive would be perfect. I know there's lots of mountains, but any particular one I should...

    Credit Card Skimmers Found at Gas Stations.

    I am not sure why everyone is so afraid of fraud. US/Canada have zero cardholder liability laws (or policies?). My card number gets stolen about every 6 months, with amounts averaging $3,000 -- hasn't ever been a problem to get it back. Do what's easiest for you. Let the bank, that earns money...

    Mk7 on Canada Website

    Mine included taxes, but yes we pay more. Our loaded car is better though, get better nav unit and climatronic, among perhaps other things.

    Mk7 on Canada Website

    I paid $40,800 for my 2012 fully-loaded GTI, after a $1,500 rebate (bought it in May before the 2012 were even available). So let's call that $42,500 without the rebate. Or about $1,200 more expensive than the MK7.

    Trance/House/Techno/Dubstep/Drum N bass/ ETC Thread

    Everybody pre-records their shit. I used to care, but at the end of the day, if I like what I'm hearing, I could care less. They still release (and play) some amazing music. I do like the concept of their tour, from a business perspective. They are raking in millions each. And then, two years...

    Trance/House/Techno/Dubstep/Drum N bass/ ETC Thread

    Can't wait for Ultra... SHM should be amazing this year. One big name I will not ever see again is deadmau5, even though he's Canadian and all: over the last ~two years, he has been such a disappointment. For the sake of anyone wanting to see him, pray that he does not break up with his...
