  11. So my mom likes the Mini Cooper

    Anything Auto
    Do we like these on here? Any opinions? She's looking for a new car. She needs a new car badly; she will drive a car for 10-15 years to be honest. Fuel economy is important (she commutes through Austin's winding hill country), but she is at a point now she wants to have a little fun after...

    Michelin introduces airless tires. Looks pretty interesting. Wonder how much they will cost though compared to the standard tubeless tire. http://www.fastcoolcars.com/airless-tires.htm http://www.michelinman.com/difference/releases/pressrelease01102005a.html

    B5 Garage
    I got my new PCV valve and am ready to start the install (tomorrow). I even got the little T. The valve does not close completely - I can still blow air through it from the closed side - not much air, but a bit. I am concerned about this because my gut feeling is that the problem with the PCV...

    I just saw a new Renault Espace minivan cruising around Auburn Hills. It had markers on it that said 3.0cDI. 3L, continuous diesel injection! Yowsers. Sorry, couldn't find any good pics. Does anybody remember the F1 Espace cruising the F1 circuit some years back?

    Anything Auto
    When my service consultant told me my loaner car is going to a minivan, I cringed. A minivan, I thought, is the ultimate blow to my automotive desires. I mean, it's bad enough I've had to drive an SUV all summer (since my Passat is at school), but... a minivan for God's sake, might as well...
