i can confirm some suspicion about the X1, it is in fact built nearly directly off the 3-Series wagon platform. Don't believe me? The two are under 2" different in wheelbase, about 3" in height, and the X1 holds a technical label within BMW (not that its secret or anything) as a 5-Door wagon. » 12/17/14 12:28pm Wednesday 12:28pm

Highly sketchy. I imagine the deposits came with a contract that says something along the lines of, "If you back out we keep the deposit. By giving us your money you are receiving a place on the waiting list to buy this car." Where it should read, "If you back out we keep the deposit. By giving us your money you are… » 11/24/14 12:49pm 11/24/14 12:49pm

Velocity of the air combined with different manifold lengths. (Wavelengths of sound and difference in paths traveled). Basically in theory you could have an engine with zero exhaust noise at at least 1 given frequency (rpm), but its unlikely you could ever actually notice it. » 11/17/14 9:47pm 11/17/14 9:47pm

Track isn't as smooth as it could be (obviously no track ever will be) and the lack of rear aero let the tail end get loose. Pretty simple cause really, you can see it getting loose and getting wheel spin fairly often throughout the run once he breaks 140.... You should never get wheel spin at 140, especially not in… » 11/03/14 1:45am 11/03/14 1:45am

Just to clarify, there's a HUGE difference between customer pre-orders and dealer orders. This is dealers expecting the market to take well to them (they could be right). This isn't very strange though. The 30,000 figure is likely nationwide dealer orders for multiple months, possibly an entire quarter. » 9/17/14 2:26pm 9/17/14 2:26pm

I'd say its a fight between the Genesis Coupe and depending heavily on whether or not it's as good as it could be, the EcoBoost Mustang. They're the best all around cars in the group. Sure I'd probably take a BRZ over both of them simply due to my massive throbber for the Crawford turbo BRZ's, but that's irrelevant. » 9/08/14 2:56pm 9/08/14 2:56pm

And the Ram V6 gets 18/20/25... This is fucking idiotic. If you aren't going to make it small, why fucking make it? You already have a full size truck. All you did is create a less capable truck that gets minutely better fuel economy. What about that is so difficult for these companies to understand? These things… » 9/03/14 8:10pm 9/03/14 8:10pm
