I keep hearing again and again "Look for the good dealers, they are out there." Full disclosure: I work for a dealer. However, I have no idea how your supposed to fine them. Dealer Rater and Google reviews can help, but so much of it is contrived (I'm telling you this with experience both as a customer and someone who… » 1/29/15 11:11am Thursday 11:11am

So I'm a parts guy for a VW dealership. First off, it blows my fucking mind that companies and dealers had to do surveys to "figure this out." Just, BLOWS. MY. FUCKING. MIND. It also lets you know how backwards (and back handed) this business is. Part of it is lack of organization, but the fact is a dealer who… » 1/24/15 1:40pm 1/24/15 1:40pm

Actually yes and even more so than a new car. The great thing about a lease is your commitment to it is limited and you get to walk away more or less scott-free at the end of the term with no responsibility to the vehicle (talking more maintenance and any knocks the market gave it in resale value, rather than… » 1/21/15 11:56am 1/21/15 11:56am

The front wing is mega-important and whatever they show on the launch cars I can promise you will not be what they show up in Melbourne with. Not that all those fences will or won't be there, but don't look closely or get too attached. » 1/21/15 11:35am 1/21/15 11:35am

That is a stunning photo. I still watch the race every year and love it, but one of the things I really miss since they left Africa is the amazing scenery. It's just not quite the same in South America, not to knock it, but it's just not. » 1/16/15 3:56pm 1/16/15 3:56pm

I have no idea what fair market value is for one of these, but I've wanted one of these for a long time and if I had the $60k large I'm not sure that I hesitate much to drop it on this thing. I mean it's Noble designed car and it has stood the test of time in terms of design and performance. I want. I want. I want. » 1/16/15 10:06am 1/16/15 10:06am

The FIA is not screwing Honda. Honda is in the EXACT SAME place all manufactures were 1 year ago when their engines were new and not homologated. If the FIA let Honda wait until the end of the year then there are large, important parts of the engine that the other 3 manufactures had to freeze at the same date last… » 1/15/15 10:58am 1/15/15 10:58am

I got this as a wedding gift, it's NOT the keg-o-rator you want, I've spent as much money getting it to function properly than the giver spent on it. Too many non-standard parts, and it's smaller than other full sized keg-o-raters which means that with a 5lb co2 tank and a 1/2 barrel you will have trouble fitting… » 1/14/15 3:11pm 1/14/15 3:11pm
