Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Does it have any sort of a splat pattern?

Re: BKs New Car

Driven one, well an FR-S, did like, but not for what they're asking for it. I'd rather just have a 2 seater at that point rather than a pointless backseat which people having legs couldn't use.

It’s obviously a miata
I'm vaguely lusty for one, then again I'm also lusty for a manual Challenger. My heart is aflutter for all sorts of the things.

Did a test dive of a few cars this week. I was blown away with one of them. Probably the best manual I've ever driven since my old Civics. Absolutely no rev hang and its a 2019. A bit small in footprint though.
Come on, dish!

Re: How to destroy the engine on $70,000 car!

Factory equipped. I've never tried it: not my car, not interested. I've driven the car once, and it was fun in a "this will get old fast" sort of way.

A friend of mine has a Mustang GT with line lock, the use of which will allegedly not void his warranty.

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: BKs New Car

I've not driven the new turbo charged Mazda6 with 225hp/310tq (250hp when using 93). Common complaints on the enthusiast boards is that the NA 2.5 is slow, but I don't think it's necessarily true. The base engine is class competitive in terms of horsepower and, for the year I have, in front of the b...

Re: BKs New Car

Mine tends to do a quick blip between gears, but it's nothing I have any issue with. Then again the first manual I drove regularly was the Kia, so my perception could very well be skewed. I tend to get what I'd loosly characterize as wobbly shits, but that's all my own timing. Gives me something to ...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

I also got another over the pants handy because moving seats back to position is apparently not taught anymore. As a tech, the general rule of thumb is that if the seat must be moved to fit, only move it along one axis. That way the customer can easily restore its position. We dont get paid to move...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Grr. Had my oil change done today and specified 0W-20 per the manual and was given 5W. My dealer offers 9 free oil changes at 5W, but I've been able to pay an upcharge for the 0W. I also got another over the pants handy because moving seats back to position is apparently not taught anymore. I did ge...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Had experience with current UConnect. It’s good, but not the end all as often portrayed online. It's fast to connect to a smart phone, but my experience was that it was glitchy. Did you experience the loud, full-volume buzzing that couldn't be reset by shutting the car off? Especially using Android...
