S tronic on the audi A models in the u.s? S tronic on the audi A models in the u.s?

Has Audi ever sent over their dual clutch on a plebeian A4 or a6 model(non-S or RS) car to the U.S.A.? Wife is open to replacing the beetle with a bigger car/wagon(specifically mentioned an Audi) and I’d be open to getting an auto if I could bounce off the rev limiter if I please and get some quick shifts out of the…

Honest and Helpful Honest and Helpful

Frustrated BMW owner goes to autozone, gets code, lists car on Craigslist. There is something about this that cracks me up:

Paging all the E9X fans and a “you know your oil leak is bad...”

First off, anyone have tips on what to look for on a 2009 328i x drive? There is one near me for $10.5k with 70,000 miles which seems pretty reasonable. Price seems high for the year but low for the miles. I think with a naturally aspirated 6, AWD, and a little more room and the ability to add a roof rack I would be a…

Hmmm how foretelling Hmmm how foretelling

2 months ago I posted about a job I applied for in my organization, in the post I put a picture of a FoRS:

Follow up on front page article - too good to be true?

Tom answered a question about a couple of lease swap sites. I got curious and went to check them out. Low and behold this dealer appears to be all but begging people to take an ATS for 27 months at about 1/2 the cost of what Cadillac shows for leasing on their website:

Performance version; how about base versions?

Road and track did an article on cars that need performance versions. And although I agree with them; I also think some cars could use some stripped out base models. Here is there list:

Welp, it’s done, my brain jumped the shark Welp, it’s done, my brain jumped the shark

I spent yesterday watching some DIYs and informational videos on B7 S4s and after watching how people pull the front end apart, remove sub frames, and dismantle their engines; I thought to myself “that’s what everyone makes such a big deal about, pfff.”

So naturally I’m imagining the big raise and all the fun things I could buy with it.

The 992 reception will be more in the details but hey these look good

I think ultimately whether or not(or how much) people like the 992 will come down to dimensions, weight, and so forth. It’s not like some cars where seeing spy shots is going to really push your opinion one way or the other. But, just in case, here are the best spy shots yet of the 992.

I’m at the midpoint of my car wrenching project

So unnecessary internet car shopping is at its peak. 135is cars are way too much coin, 335is caRs are all over the map, but m235i cars are plentiful and seem like decent buys on paper. Heard mixed things about the actual driving experience though.

If you were shopping for a manual Maserati Coupe; you have about 1-2 options nationwide

And this interestingly specced red over blue at a used car dealer is one of them:

Subaru FB engines and rings for my brother.

My brother has his heart set on a Subaru; he is shopping Imprezas and legacy’s. If I understand the FB recall right; if the vehicle exhibited high oil consumption before the end of the warranty period; then it’s covered by the extended warranty. If the vehicle didn’t show symptoms until after the original warranty,…

2,500 miles later; living that water cooled Porsche life like 2,500 miles later; living that water cooled Porsche life like

Yeah, that’s my post on Rennlist; yes I do think my IMS is failing; no my engine didn’t go boom(yet). I’m trying to figure out if I can get away with just replacing the bearing or if once the bearing wears this badly the engine needs a tear down(cause if so, uggghhhhhhhhhhh).

I did very Porsche things today I did very Porsche things today

My mother in law had her 60th birthday party on a big honking boat on the fanciest lake in the area. So naturally, I needed to drive the Porsche. I recently pulled my window regulator and had it repaired and then I put it back in and I also replaced a door latch so I can use the soft top and lockup my car. I drove my…

Best place to get a pipe cut/welded?

If a person wanted to get 2 U exhaust pipes cut in half (at the mid point of the U) and then welded with the 2 parts of the U at 90 degrees; where would be the best(cheapest) place to have this accomplished? I just want to bring the pipe somewhere describe what I want cut/welded and then go home and handle …

Saab 9-3 wagons are beautiful and this one is NP Saab 9-3 wagons are beautiful and this one is NP

I’ve been tossing around the idea of selling my turbo beetle and buying something with the equity I have in it so that I don’t have a monthly payment. This would free up some much needed funds for my 996(assuming the replacement doesn’t need $200 per month in work). I’m not sure I’d do it, the beetle is pretty…
