Apart from the points ppl already mentioned, itís less fun to drive than an RWD one! As long as you know how to drive and have good winter tires, AWD is not a necessity for snow driving. It HELPS but...

Same thing with the 24 Hrs of Le Mans. Drivers used to run to the cars, start it, then drive off. I would love to see that on a current race.

Nope. Mods never add value. Thatís why if you look at sought after cars like the R34 GTR and Mk4 Supra, the bone stock ones are worth far more than those stupid riced up ones. I personally find...

I was never a fan of new MB cars esp the CLA. I hate that car in particular. I am a huge fan of the ďdiamondĒ designs their cars had in the 2010s.

Nope. If your car is well maintained and runs on high tier gas it doesnít need it. I use Shell V power for my car and it never skipped a beat.

This is actually my 2nd brake change. The first ones wore a bit more evenly. My rear brakes are due soon as theyíre at 5mm and they actually wore evenly. Perhaps I just had a warped rotor.

How many miles on your valve cover gasket

Iím at 120,000 and I canít believe my VCG is still the original one. It might be the longest lasting BMW VCG out there. I didnít expect it as my previous 335i went through TWO VCGís before 92,000. My...

I have WRG3s installed on my 335i and theyíre on par with the grip I had when I ran a set of actual winter tires. People actually compliment the grip when I give them a lift.

Buying a cheap 2009 335I XDrive with only 38k miles on it for my wife a good idea?

They auctioned it out. They donít put older and/or high mileage cars on their lot.

Itís mostly the GM and Chrysler dealers that offer these huge rebates. The local Chevy dealer here is giving...

I donít see why not. Never take a sellers word. Get a pre purchase inspection done by someone who knows how, itís an old car.

Brakes

Right. They only ship free within the USA. I get around that because I visit family often there and I get items shipped to their place.
