    I Think the GTI/R Days are Numbered

    Maybe in the US they'll go away. But they are still very well selling in the rest of the world. When I was in Germany a few years ago there were golfs and gti's everywhere. It seemed like 75% of the cars on the road were golfs. Even Canada is getting the mk8 golfs that aren't confirmed yet...

    Comprehensive Golf MK8 Reviews & Discussions

    excellent review, good find. informative and not just a sales pitch. I'm warming up to the interior. I still think driving it in person will be the true test, but even here in a real world video it looks more inviting. As opposed to stills from autoshows. I've always appreciated the...

    Drove a Tesla Model S today

    One of my old high school friends works for Tesla. He got to drive the Roadster. 3.7s 0-60 and ~250miles on a charge. I wouldn't turn one down. The funny part is my friend is 6'2 and the roof is barely up to his waist.

    Fun/Dirty Drinking Games?

    DAFUQ Did I Just Stumble Upon?

    wtf? I was a goth kid in high school. this was never a thing. Dancing was what the preppy kids did while we sat alone in corners being depressed. I blame Zumba.
