Well, I mean, they kind of are, because the real drivers are buying Cayman S's and 911. I know my Porsche if/when I ever buy one, won't come from the dealer, for the very fact that I wan't one they made 15-40 years ago, well for 911s anyway. (Yeah, that's a scary thought, and I'm still pretty far away from even being… » 10/14/14 5:41pm 10/14/14 5:41pm

No way, if anything should be called "The Senna,' (and I really don't think anything should,) it should be the NSX. I sometimes refer to it as "Aryton's Car," but in all fairness there is one other guy who really shaped that car too, maybe more so. I'm always conflicted by that. » 10/14/14 9:45am 10/14/14 9:45am

As you touched on, but didn't fully go into, there is a huge difference between an OEM remanufactured part (which is what you described) and a rebuilt part, especially an aftermarket rebuilt. When a part is remanufactured it is completely torn down and reassembled. When a part is rebuilt it is only torn down to the… » 10/09/14 4:21pm 10/09/14 4:21pm

Good news about that is, I had my Abarth at the dealer Monday and they are one of the few Fiat dealers that are getting Alfa, and, and AND! they already have the signage and the like up! And I don't mean like a printed banner, I mean legit, lit signage. » 10/07/14 12:00pm 10/07/14 12:00pm

Had a friend with one of these and apparently that windshield is damn near impossible to find and very expensive if you do. From what I understand it's actually so hard to find that it just might be a deal breaker since your never going to be able to replace it and pass inspection. He ended up selling the car for… » 10/07/14 9:11am 10/07/14 9:11am

Probably not going to classify as the worst weather, but for personal reasons I remember the 2004 24 Hours of Daytona where it rained for around 18 hours straight and they actually had to red flag the race AM on Sunday (around 7.30am?) because the ground was so saturated it just wouldn't drain any more. Overnight in… » 10/03/14 12:07pm 10/03/14 12:07pm

The real problem is that Magnuson Moss case was about using aftermarket parts that were designed to replace and function as OEM parts. For example using a Wix oil and / or air filter instead of OEM, or Wagner brake pads, a different brand of oil that meets OEM specs but isn't what the manufactures installs or… » 9/30/14 12:40pm 9/30/14 12:40pm

Yeah I my local dealer did suck and then I went to a less local and better one, but they still sucked a little. I am grateful because they kept me in a loaner and did try to help me, but in the end still couldn't fix and I think also didn't address my problem correctly. I also agree that every brand can have bad… » 9/30/14 10:26am 9/30/14 10:26am
