    My dad had a MkII MR2 Turbo. It was a blast to drive and I never had any problems with the handling, but maybe I was just lucky. The shifter in that car was fantastic.

    We used to but there weren't any fieros parked on our street, just on my cousin's street in La Crescenta. Oh my mom's friend's daughter drove a white one, made her 10x hotter then.

    :lol:

    I’ve had this happen to me, only it was a Murcielago and it was slightly more painful, as hot unburned fuel shot up in my face

    Hey, @Spats . I heard gossip today that Honda is releasing them N-box Mini van things as a full electric.

    -game changer.

    Fantastic. Now, all we need is an ok-for-the-US model and global warming will be solved, while we sip our lattes. Seriously: electric drive trumps turbos for sheer driving exuberance; they zip through heavy traffic with little effort, making them the ideal "grocery getter."

    Yeah, a fellow mechanic was telling me the Nissan leaf is a hoot to drive.
    so an electric all purpose transport could well put Tesla in a spot.

    It doesn't, or hasn't yet. I like that they made redundant most features... so almost everything on the screen also has a button somewhere.

    We didn't look at any Audi. We were considering Lexus UX or NX, Jag E or Fpace, and Cadillac Xt4 or Xt5. I have a 2017 XE Jag and REALLY wanted to love either the E-Pace or the F-Pace, but honestly wasn't that thrilled for the price difference. We liked the styling of the Cadillac and the "feel;" it felt bigger than the others, even though its not.

    Yeah, it's apparently an entirely new platform and design. We drove both, but the Xt4 was better for him and, unlike all the "ballers" on SF... we actually have a budget. From the front, they are very similar in size... but the Xt5 has a much bigger ass. There is also a lot of new stuff in the Xt4 that, I'm guessing, will find its way into the Xt5 very soon.

    Black is the Xt4; white is Xt5

    Saw this modified Jeep Wrangler this morning with a funny license plate frame and a stick figure decal.

    The other way around: every shifter aspires to be like the Miata's. Porsche shifter feel is serviceable, but nothing to really brag about compared to the Miata or the S2000.

    Call me a contrarian, but I always thought the GT3 shifter was overrated. I never thought there was anything special about how mine felt.

    Saw this abomination this morning. I can only imagine how heavy it feels to drive, considering how heavy they felt bone stock. The fender kits are a bit much. Reminds me of those ridiculous “Liberty Walk” kits. They did have a nice pair of G-Wagons in the back though.
