    Volkswagen reveals the refreshed 2018 Golf

    I need me a DSG GTE. Probably the easiest, zippiest car to drive. Sounds nice.

    FS: Winter wheel+tire+hardware set, $200 OBO

    Tesla Model 3

    Actually it is an issue. Tesla have abandoned plans to install a network of battery-swap stations due to data recieved from their pilot program. People don't use it. With it went their battery leasing program where you pay per mile or charge on the battery and Tesla will periodically swap your...

    Tesla Model 3

    ^ I just talked to her about a leasing option. IMO you don't want to buy these cars outright. The batteries used in these are the same as laptop batteries. Although they will surely be treated better in the Tesla than they are in laptops, consider that in 10 years they'll likely need a new pack...

    Tesla Model 3

    I love the look. Kind of like a bed sheet draped over a modern car. I do worry about stone chips on the front though.

    Troubleshoot a boost control issue

    Lately I've been having an intermittent boost control issue. I have some ideas but want additional input. Symptom: 1) At part and constant throttle, boost builds steadily on its own before being released by a DV actuation. I'm guessing the DV actuation is a result of some safety measures...

    Bot SPAM threads getting out of hand

If you don't want to come around anymore because of the spam then you're more likely to click around in...

    Squeaky shift lever

    When cold my shift lever has been a bit squeaky lately. It's come on in just the past couple months. It feels as though it's rubbing rubber against wet rubber or something. Typically takes 5 minutes to go away, I presume because of the temperature of something. In addition the gates have been...

    It's Happening... Subaru STI to get new engine.

    Is anyone else lamenting the loss of ULHs? Are you able to retrofit them onto the FA? A turbo boxer with ELH sounds even worse than a turbo I4 IMO.

    I love that conservatives bring up Nazis all the time when they talk about socialism. Yes, the Nazis called themselves a socialist worker's party. We're they? No, they were the neo-conservatives of their time, so bigoted that they actually carried out their plans to curtail progressive social...
