Re: Watkins' other Saab

we don't need to be a four car household for just two of us. Eh? Why not? My yard looks like a used car dealer. :lol: Wife's DD, my DD, wife's second car, my second car, pickup truck, yard plow truck (rotting remains of old pickup truck), project vehicle that I'll soon sell, travel trailer, buncha ...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

I guess it's time for me to come back and have my honorary lifer post. It's long overdue but I wanted to really get everything covered all at once in all areas. Let's start with the good: The GTI is still going strong and now out of warranty so a bit of holding breathe but has been okay so far. I'm...

To each their own. Wasn’t gonna say it but my hand is being forced - it looks ghetto to me.

Re: Well I found the Focus replacement...

it's probably similar in a lot of other northern states, but having dark tint is a recipe for being mistaken for a drug dealer. it's also not as crucial as in the southern states. on top of that, there are legal limits on tint darkness which people tend to disobey. then someone else ends up with an ...

Re: Manuals you'll miss in 2019...

I will admit, I've owned 1 rwd vehicle, a T-10 Blazer, als have never really seen the nostalgia. It's perhaps the wrong example. That said, I don't miss crank windows and am ambivalent on keyholes. never owned a rwd vehicle though I hope I someday do (bargain LS430 on my mind). Definitely don’t mis...

Re: Manuals you'll miss in 2019...

Started getting a list together of 2019 cars and trucks that come with a manuals. I'm sad to see the Subaru Forester lose the manual. While not the best, it was rather unique and the last of the compact CUVs that offered a manual. Somewhat surprised it lasted through 2018. The closest you'll be abl...

Ok, that was actually overall a good video. I think he just oversimplified the no downshift thing In not fully explaining the circumstances he was referring to.

Re: How to Operate a Manual Transmission 101 Video

There's one Kilmer video where he effectively says that you should never downshift unless you're stopping. I thought to myself watching that if I'm slowing and the car is struggling I need to downshift. Any new guy watching that might take it as gospel and could bung him or herself up. wait, that m...
