Besides price, resale value, and reliability there is no real reason why a jalopnik would want to buy this car. We don't think rationally, we think with feelings and emotions. No K24 in a FWD & no manual can get us excited. Logically it is a good car, but not for enthusiast. » 2/14/15 2:10pm 2/14/15 2:10pm

Those seats in there look like Recaros. The 2015 Evos do not have Recaros because Mitsubishi did not update them to new Federal standards. So I doubt that this car is the one coming to the US. The Special Action Model will not have Recaros. :( » 12/29/14 5:23pm 12/29/14 5:23pm

reminds me of the Padres. After they spent some money, went to the World Series, got Petco Park approved, then gutted the team. They haven't spent money since. Just terrible baseball and I bet the owners are making a crap ton. Give me Jerry Jones or Mark Cuban. People who spend money to win, even if it's dumb… » 12/29/14 2:54pm 12/29/14 2:54pm

The loss of high revving naturally aspirated engines. You know they're going away when M3 goes the way of the turbo and Honda's Type R, too. Which means they also have to lower their redlines. The way emissions are going I don't think they're ever coming back. » 12/29/14 12:59pm 12/29/14 12:59pm

How was the EP3 Si? I had a choice between that and Nissan SE-R Spec-V. I chose the Spec-V and regret it until this day. Any problems? Was it fun? » 12/29/14 12:46pm 12/29/14 12:46pm

Do u know how much these warranties are? I remember a few posts ago u said they've jacked up the rates. Those screaming deals aren't exactly what they use to be. » 12/25/14 3:29pm 12/25/14 3:29pm

Honda was on a roll in the 90s and early 2000s. Then they ruined everything w/ torque in their sports cars. S2000 was everything that was right w/ Honda. » 12/25/14 12:54am 12/25/14 12:54am

I also recommend base Honda Fit. Carmax sells them 4-5 years old w/ 100k miles between $9-11k. Meaning if you negotiated right, you're only out $6-7k after 5 years and the cars has standard a lot of stuff. » 12/22/14 2:45pm 12/22/14 2:45pm

Wow! I'm a car guy & I always tell people who ask for advice when buying new to buy the least amount of options because that's how auto manufacturers make their money & it usually doesn't help w/ resale value. I'll just give you my examples to justify my reasoning and also agree w/ a couple of your suggestions. » 12/20/14 12:44am 12/20/14 12:44am

"It's an intriguing idea to reposition Scion, but I would argue that the reason those cars are working out so well is they offer affordable-ish entry into an established premium brand and all the aura of luxury and prestige that comes with it. Nobody buys a CLA250 because it's an amazing car (it isn't), they buy it… » 12/04/14 1:49pm 12/04/14 1:49pm

I've sold 2 cars on Craigslist & it pretty much sucks. I had a tire kicker basically act like he didn't want the car to beat up on my price. So I decided not to sell to him and he basically gets all pissy and brings his price up by 33%. But I was done. » 12/03/14 8:30pm 12/03/14 8:30pm

it's probably a long term rental or lease. There is no way Ferrari will let their cars be sold like that. People apply to purchase a Ferrari. Not let anyone one w/ money, especially new money, just buy a rare Ferrari. » 12/03/14 7:36pm 12/03/14 7:36pm

I'm sorry for your loss. I've poured so much money into my beater I probably should have just cut my losses too. I still have it and I'm still working on it. This is after 2 blown headgaskets. » 11/25/14 3:36pm 11/25/14 3:36pm

I think you're right on this. I get so caught up in HP that I forget that driving is about the feeling of the car and emotion. 95% of people will never autocross or track their car. Most cars are way above people's limits. It sounds like this car is fun everywhere, from the streets to the back road. Now, if only more… » 11/25/14 3:27pm 11/25/14 3:27pm

what's the redline on the new M3/M4? I love the e46 sky high redline and hope someday to drive the e92. Will I be disappointed if I've loved 8000 RPMs w/ old Honda engines and e46 M? » 6/13/14 2:12pm 6/13/14 2:12pm
