It's a German car dude, if the check engine light isn't on then there is a problem. I have never driven a used German car that didn't have an erroneous CEL and I have never driven any German car with a competent design and number of cupholders. The struggle is real. » 8/11/14 8:37am 8/11/14 8:37am

nope nope nope. Looks the corvette is great at what it does but you can't make an Aston out of a corvette. Not only would it not work but Aston owners would riot. Putting an AMG engine in is one thing, building a plastic Aston is something altogether different and wrong. » 8/07/14 12:12pm 8/07/14 12:12pm

im getting tired of hearing that but the blackbird is not stealth! It has a lower RCS than comparable aircraft of the era but it has been described as a flying door. Modern radar can detect door sized objects no problem. » 8/05/14 7:56am 8/05/14 7:56am

im not waiting 50 years with an xk in my garage to make a little money. They made of lot of those. They have a horrible reputation and won't be collectable. The F type might be, the jury is still out. If you want to make money on a car get a stripper frs, drain the fluids and lock it away for 10 years. By then it will… » 8/04/14 12:48pm 8/04/14 12:48pm

The corvette is not a luxury performance car. It's a performance car. The closest thing Gm makes to luxury performance is the CTS-V and the ATS-V will be an interesting competitor to the Ms/AMGs/RS's of the world. The kind of people who buy M3's are different for the people who buy 911s who are also different form the… » 7/30/14 6:38pm 7/30/14 6:38pm

clearly Mercedes should go back and do what they used to be known for, making the best cars in the world. Not the most feature packed, or the fastest or the prettiest but the best engineered form of 4 wheel conveyance you could buy. I recently convinced my friend to buy a '93 300d (w124) and I am pretty sure its the… » 7/30/14 3:46pm 7/30/14 3:46pm

really? First off the engine is much smaller in displacement than either of the two you listed. Its a 4.0 has gm or Mopar ever made a performance 4.0l v8? Its also likely underrated as all Mercedes engines are and something tells me when renntech or BRABUS gets their hands on one the chip tune alone will make a… » 7/25/14 12:55pm 7/25/14 12:55pm

Normally when people say production engine it means current production engine. Like when they say fastest production car in the world it means current production car. This is a widely accepted standard, don't nitpick semantics. » 7/23/14 11:24pm 7/23/14 11:24pm

I'm going to say nope. I did some digging and the Hemi '68's were 3527lbs and made 425 GROSS hp. So it would probably make Mid-300's net hp (assuming the ratings weren't BS, but I don't know enough about mopar to know if they were as bad as chevy on that) and with a power to weight ratio like that and with 1960's… » 7/15/14 6:32pm 7/15/14 6:32pm

Some of those comments are pretty stupid. As an old Benz owner I can tell you, the resale value is shit on them. Their value plummets when you buy it and you will never make money on a benz unless its an SLR or similar. Chances are it was an E320 or other V6 model which don't get bad gas mileage and if its paid off… » 7/10/14 6:33pm 7/10/14 6:33pm
