Re: BKs New Car

That is by no means a heavy clutch. If anything its a bit too light. It is responsive at least. What exactly makes a clutch heavy vs. light? Is it as simple as the weight of the clutch disc? Or is it how hard the pedal is to push to the floor and keep there? The clutch is my Mazda 3 seems very ligh...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

We took our inaugural trip in the school bus this past weekend and of course it ended poorly. Bus wouldn't start. Turns out the starter was internally shorted and arcing to the block. After two hour-long round trips to parts stores and a hope-this-works starter, we gave up. The closest starter we c...

you done read my mind. 8 seconds isn't TOO bad for an economy car though...

Re: BKs New Car

I've honestly thought about just going way old school and getting an old Mustang or something from the 80s-early 00s. Or perhaps a Challenger from like late 2000s. I'd be curious how they were. I'm glad this VW was cheap enough. I'm sure I'll take a bath on it but it's just unbearable. The rev hang...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Gold Cloud in for servicing. Sunroof rattle and what sounds like tranny whine (high rope). Got a loaner which is even more clouderific than my Gold Cloud: a pearly white cloud RX 350.

Re: BKs New Car

Yes, looks just like that. But it's black. Its handsome thing but just devoid of any feel. It felt nice on the test drive..the radio is also balls in it. I need to get it updated. I feel your pain. If it's the same manual as was in the 2011 2.5 Jetta I GET IT . Two overdrives effectively hide any p...

Re: BKs New Car

So, I was driving it in a somewhat spirited manner (revving to 3k instead of 2.2k) and holy crap the rev hang. By the time I would shift into the next gear and look down the revs would only be a few hundred lower than where it started. In some instances, it was higher... Please tell me all new cars...

I tend to get what I'd loosly characterize as wobbly shits, but that's all my own timing. Gives me something to concentrate on.
