Car Talk 4: Now with more carpocalypse!

Every car rental I've done in the US ends up around $100 a day all-in, those rates you forumbros claim to pay are :fakenews: :bs: :yeahok: :csb: What are you using to rent a car? $100 bills, apparently. I rented a car in New Mexico last summer for the Cayenne launch. It was $75 for three days... fr...

Went HAM on a bunch of stuff today. Picked up a Wahoo Elemnt Bolt bundle @ REI, and ordered a couple extra mounts and sensors to convert the whole fleet over to the Wahoo setup. Done with the mish-mosh of bike computers and Strava on the phone. Time for one simple solution. Also ordered some new sp...

I've talked to a few people I worked with, and apparently my reputation is the opposite of destroyed like I thought it was. This is the car business. It's as backwards on the corporate side as it is on dealership level. The good and the great are pigeonholed into jobs and kept there because they ex...

Car Talk 4: Now with more carpocalypse!

Turbo is overkill. If I was to DD a Porsche that wasn’t a 911 Turbo S (totally fucking bulletproof) it’d be a Macan GTS. Better subtle cosmetic tweaks, sport exhaust and a much more sensible price. I 100% agree with you. We are looking at these in maybe a 2-3 year time frame. I just couldnt find th...

That being said, I think that this Renegade is :neat: and it's probably the thing that most people should be getting for DD's if they want a "rugged" SUV. It seems pretty ideal for :wasteful: I'm not going to lie... I love the wife's Renegade. She's got a Trailhawk in Omaha Orange, with the upgrade...
