February in Washington State is a bold time to schedule an autocross event. Looks like it turned out ok though. When I saw the picture up top, I figured that the venue must be in Southern California, and was confused as to why I had never heard of it. » 2/22/15 11:17am 2/22/15 11:17am

Man, I was beginning to lose faith in humanity thinking nobody had posted an e24 yet. eBay's a bit thin right now, but how about this one from AutoTrader, an '85 635CSi with your proper manual transmission and under 80k on the clock for the mere pittance of $4400. Pretty unbelievable. » 2/22/15 9:41am 2/22/15 9:41am

One of the front page authors did a post recently about how Top Gear UK has gotten away from what made it great through over-production and scripts that don't have a feel for reality. That's the problem TGUSA has had from the beginning. All the tests seem pretty fake/scripted, and they're super arbitrary about picking… » 2/22/15 8:54am 2/22/15 8:54am

I drove an early e65 version of this car when I worked for a BMW shop in high school. I don't remember exactly what the problem was, but the car had some kind of issue under heavy acceleration, so after the mechs fixed it, I had to free the beast pretty good to make sure the problem was fixed. Gotta say, it was one of… » 2/22/15 8:44am 2/22/15 8:44am

This kind of raises more questions than it answers. If you asked me to name affordable new-car platforms that would be good for a mild build, the Cube probably wouldn't even make the list. Also, if you're in to the whole scene thing, there are dozens of make/model followings that are larger and more active than the… » 2/21/15 11:48am 2/21/15 11:48am

I wish Chevy or Ford would make something with this kind of capability. In my trail rig I'll take the 'go anywhere slowly' mentality over the barnstorming mentality of the Raptor any day. This seems like the ultimate Baja adventure rig except for 2 minor issues: a) hard to justify spending Porsche Turbo money on a rig… » 2/21/15 11:29am 2/21/15 11:29am

Well, if Kurt's telling the truth, and this is just a case of a jilted ex trying to blow up his life, she's doing a pretty bang-up job. I mean the timing, with the hugely public domestic violence issues in sports, going the civil route rather than criminal to get a ruling on a lower burden of proof, her potentially… » 2/21/15 10:30am 2/21/15 10:30am
