He is getting pretty old. Plus being a smoker, he looks and feels even older. Let's all just pretend he retired and be happy Top Gear went down before it turned into absolute garbage. There's nothing more depressing than watching one of your favorite shows do that. » 3/25/15 10:17am Wednesday 10:17am

Do we REALLY believe this story though? Is it possible? Sure. But it seems to me that you'd have to be a gigantic moron to even attempt rape as an uber driver, since you know...where you are driven is 100% tracked, who you picked up is tracked, you and your car are tracked, etc. It's not like you can expect to get… » 3/24/15 7:42pm Tuesday 7:42pm

I'm not a climate change denier... I totally accept that it's changing. However, historically we've gone through extreme cooling and warming periods. This all happened before humans, before cars, etc. The globe is constantly adjusting itself. Land shifts, seas rise, volcanoes erupt, etc. Cooling periods have actually… » 3/22/15 2:12pm Sunday 2:12pm

As a miata fan, I am thrilled that it's lost weight. Not that the NC was heavy, mind you. But did they really have to worsen the power-weight ratio? The old car was 14.8lbs/hp. This one is 15.05. Or maybe I'm squaking over nothing since the new car's torque-weight ratio is actually significantly improved? 15.76… » 3/12/15 9:50pm 3/12/15 9:50pm

It's weird... As a manual loving and owning guy all my life, I purchased a dct m3 and have really not longed for that ol stick much. Now my wife has an 8 speed auto in her f31 BMW and she's not missing the ol stick either. Am I getting old? Am I losing my edge? I really don't know. I still track and autox my car… » 3/11/15 1:11pm 3/11/15 1:11pm

Meh, you're a douche. He may have been slightly close to you but he didn't cut you off because he was traveling faster than you. You didn't have to slow down to avoid hitting him. You could have just honked to notify him that were were displeased...instead you honked and kept flashing lights at him. I'm not saying… » 3/10/15 1:15pm 3/10/15 1:15pm

Whenever I buy a new car and they ask if I want GAP, I tell them no. Then a bit later they offer it again, and I say no. Then they discount the price by 30-50% and I string them along for a little bit..."ooh that does sound better"...but then I ultimately say, no. They go on to something else and come back to GAP… » 3/09/15 6:05pm 3/09/15 6:05pm

grip: cloth, durability: leatherette, comfort: leather. It's really as simple as that. My m3 has Napa leather and I find it to be extremely supple. It's a great place to be. The lack of grip isn't a major issue because the bolsters are designed well. My f31 (that's a wagon for you non-nerds) has Dakota leather. It… » 3/06/15 1:09am 3/06/15 1:09am
