I don't know what the roads are like where you drive. The 351 is soft and easily damaged. In the US you can get a take-off set for a fraction of the new price and that is the only way I would spend...

What I miss about driving my E46 manual is smooth braking coming up to a stop light or a freeway slowdown. It's annoying to feel every one of the automatic downshifts as I try to stay smooth on the...

The 5GT is not the ugliest car on the list but it deserves its top spot for two reasons. First, it is very expensive compared to most of the cars on the list. Car mags often give bonus points for...

Another source shows a weight of 1455 kg or 3,207 lbs for the manual.

0-100 kph times of 5.0/4.8 should equal a couple of tenths less for 0-60.

Comfort mode. Sport makes more engine noise but with peak torque coming in at 1500 comfort mode feels more powerful. All of that close-ratio short-shifting in sport makes the car feel weak to me. I...

Buy a new panel and keep it in the box for a while while you see how much worse it gets. There's no point switching it out until you figure out how it's getting scratched and how to prevent it.

The US Mill Works holder clears the parking sensor when offset two positions (inches) from dead center. It is stable in this position and looks better than a center mounted plate in my opinion.
