Re: BKs New Car

I'd rather drive the Flintstones' car than... whatever that is.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

The overall diameter is the same and the bolt pattern identical. I'd rather just replace the one and then get better winter tires when the time comes, but might not happen.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Pregunta: one of my tires just came into its SECOND puncture in 3 weeks; this one too close to the sidewall to repair (the fact that it's a second wound notwithstanding). Can I get away with just replacing the one, or should I do a pair? The tire shops that are open gave conflicting answers. Malcolm...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Pretty sure it’s an inherent design flaw of many turbo engines. What makes you think the 2.0T is better; it could easily just be that there are far fewer examples of that engine out there.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

A CVT is the transmission that your rental was equipped with. It is short for Continuously Variable Transmission and there are no set gear ratios. Its primary advantage is that, when done correctly, the transmission allows the engine to maintain an optimal speed for a given situation (acceleration, ...
