I recently had to change the wipers on my car (early e36). No biggie ... until I found the driver's side blade tapping against the edge of the windshield with each swipe. This is really annoying...

when in the car, use a back brace for lumbar support. Sort of like a contoured hard foam pillow. I drive 80 - 100 miles a day, and the pad keeps my back from aching late at night. I also try to...

Hey,

My only objection to the Prius isn't acceleration. I've driven much slower cars than that and have been fine. It's CVT; I'd much rather have a manual transmission. I know that hybrids work best...

old bimmer, old age spots.

Hi,

My old bimmer (1993 325i) has sprouted a few rust spots. I guess the galvanizing really works since 11 years without a spot is pretty darn good. Anyway, it's in exactly the same place on...

The car has manual HVAC controls, which is probably the only good thing about it. It must be a very early e46, since I don't know of many US cars that came with manual controls. If I had a e46,...

I hope it's just the bushings. If any part of the unibody is torn, obviously I'm not going to save a ten-year-old car for that.
