+1

I don't know if it is in my head or what, but it seems to me that my Cayman runs the smoothest on Shell or Costco 93 octanes.

GTI is harder to say because of disruptions from turbocharger,...

Well, my experience is that none so far compare with BMW. I am extremely picky when renting - Jetta is a huge favorite over a crossover, SUV or, God forbid, pickup truck. For example. Actually, I...

Aston Martin Valkyrie.

Still hoping to see Christian Horner show middle finger to the F1 in general and invite one for a full-tilt balls-out lap in Monaco this weekend. After THAT went through, F1...

Don't panic, you stepped in at the worst possible time - when the big model change is going on. I am assuming (yes, be careful with assumptions) that 2019 330i = F30 chassis and 2020 330i = G20...
