I was thinking of trading my older AMG for the SL55 (same chassis as yours). My indie says I should be scared of the air suspension but I've been reading online that you can replace it with normal suspension for cheap. What has been your experience? My AMG has been wonderful but usually I get little niggling… » 12/22/14 4:22pm Today 4:22pm

On the surface what you're saying sounds reasonable, but it is problematic. Your police experiences aren't the same as everyone else's and it's kind of a cop out to say we should just submit to whatever the strong arm of the law does and have our day in court. At this point it isn't anecdotal or hearsay; police in… » 12/18/14 7:16am Thursday 7:16am

BMW is not better than Merc at the price point. Racing pedigree aside. The 328 is hot garbage, the 335 is an insult to the BMW driving experience. At this point the 335 is only marginally better than the C350... maybe. Most people will agree the M3 is better than the C63 as a performance car, but the gap keeps closing… » 12/15/14 10:46am 12/15/14 10:46am

4 years ago I bought an SLK32 AMG. It had 60k miles and was pristine. It weighs 3300 lbs and scoots to 60 in under 5 seconds. I've fixed a few things here and there but in 4 year the total repair cost has been less than 3000 dollars. Original purchase price is 17k and it is one of only 52 2004 SLK32s in the USA. So… » 12/14/14 9:16am 12/14/14 9:16am

Maybe, maybe not. I think we're going to see how much of a bubble it is now that the 997 is reaching the air-cooled prices and cheaper. Right now you can get a bunch of 996s for cheap and no one wants them, so the 993s are inflated and with it, any other air-cooled. Maybe once the 997 and 997.2 start reaching lower… » 12/12/14 5:51pm 12/12/14 5:51pm

Though I don't think they were masterpieces, and I don't really like Gladiator, I thought Kingdom of Heaven and Robin Hood were pretty watchable, though there's a caveat. Literally all of his movies get edited to hell for time. Usually when the director's cut comes out, it reveals a lot of plot points. I remember… » 12/11/14 3:18pm 12/11/14 3:18pm

You're missing the point. Just because someone had a reasonably normal upbringing, or even a fantastic life, doesn't mean they shouldn't get behind an issue that is both important, and right. Gottlieb is just ranting because he wants to rant. Also, Kobe has spoken out on other political issues, I believe, bullying and… » 12/10/14 10:24am 12/10/14 10:24am

This is because, sadly, the Toyota Hilux used to be flat out the best looking work truck on the planet, with big tires and a lean profile, circa 1996. My dad had a bone stock 1996 2.8D in dark red, and when I was 16, there was nothing I wanted more in the world. They looked sorta like this: » 12/09/14 5:35pm 12/09/14 5:35pm

I thought Skyfall was really terrible. Aside from taking half the storyline from the first Tom Cruise mission impossible, there were some plot elements which didn't really make much sense even in the fantastical world of the super spy. Apparently I'm not in the majority though. » 12/05/14 10:42am 12/05/14 10:42am

I'm 1000% with you Mike, we should never question why a police officer decided to create an issue which he then couldn't handle alone and when it escalated, pulled a gun and emptied his clip into an 18 year old on a residential street. Absolutely appropriate response. » 12/03/14 11:26am 12/03/14 11:26am
