I bought the Escort Solo2 about a month ago. It works great, even mounted low on the dash. I do, however, leave it on the "highway" setting all the time (max sensitivity). I know that mounting it...

The Supersprint did sound kind of lame on the M3. Keep in mind that the cars were E30 M3's which have 4 cylinder engines (hence the ricey sound). What's shocking was that the other exhausts sounded...

[SoCal]That's not a fact. That's just another BS opinion, based on assumptions that the car will be resold in three years for the assumed depreciated price.

Man, this ******************** makes me mad just reading about it. Always do a "walkaround" with the service advisor when you drop your car off and when you pick it up (like how they do it when you rent a car). ...

[Brucelee]I absolute terms, the amount one takes on depreciation for an S is larger than one takes for a standard boxster, over say a three year period.
Agreed. This is the "cost to own". But...

That GHL does sound mean as hell. I wonder how bad the drone is?

From the audio clips, which probably means nothing in real life, I think the B&B sounds ok. The Remus seems kinda mellow...but...

Bruce, you sell cars so you must know what you're talking about. But I don't understand the comment on faster depreciation. There's less S cars, and as more enthusiasts discover the Boxster I would...

Method A follows the definition but method B is also acceptable. I use method B myself.

I've just recently RaggTopp'd too. It was raining the other day and the top was beading like crazy. Plus I had just waxed my car so it was really one entire beaded car. Wish I took a pic. I...

Don,

Your car looks to be in fantastic shape. I think my '04 had more swirls than yours does.

For compounds I would get Poorboy's SSR2.5 and SSR1. 2.5 is a mild cutter and 1 is a...

limon and Tech,

Maybe you guys just didn't notice the swirls before? Regardless, they are now there and there's only one way to get rid of them. And that is to polish them out.

Nice vid. Looks like the bike let up in the wake of the jet.

He was probably doing 150 mph by then.

Most modern sport bikes:
0-60 mph: around 2.7 seconds
0-100 mph: around 5.5...

That Saturn Sky looks good! With 400hp, it would be insane. GM makes ******************** cars, but their motors are tough as nails!

Give me a Sky with 400hp for $30K and I'll buy it on the spot!
