Kamry XSE impressions and further updates

Does it really need more power? I get the big dick factor but for soaking up miles the E350 is perfect Having that same debate with myself. Literally 33% better fuel mileage. Unless your car is different, my buddies e350 is running at around 24-25mpg, I would say it’s an even bigger difference than...

Stealing this thread because it's popular. Dat Zhukov. Drove the 2006 E 350 to Visalia for work. (about a 6 hour drive, mostly over interesting roads in the high desert) and man I like this car. It drives like new, maybe better, and new is good! The new Bilstein B4s and Michelin AS3+ combo is fanta...

Bender's pessimistic optimism

The other cars you’re comparing aren’t slow, but they won’t give you the same visceral noise experience. The m340 was way to fking quiet and soft. That’s the main issue. M3 comp package is loud AF especially on cold starts and especially in garages, it’s basically straight piped. Makes me smile eve...

To that point I feel like an M340i would be a pretty big let down after Bender’s Alfa.
It would be, the 335 is a huge let down compared to my M3. And the 340i is barely any different from a 335

Wrong. While people are ultimately free to make their own decisions, much of what they know is based off of what they see others doing. If they see their parents doing certain things and propagating certain habits, it's very likely they'd do it too unless they understand why they shouldn't. Underst...

A lot of it is a byproduct of watching your parents make the same disastrous financial mistakes (without knowing that what they're doing is wrong). Example: Impoverished areas with a high teen pregnancy and welfare rate. It's a self-fulfilling prophecy most times because it's a societal norm withou...

Jeeponomics 101: Eternal tirekicking for the deal-less Jeep

That seems rather difficult because you'd have to blow up the whole option structure on this platform. Which won't happen, it has got to be the biggest cash cow for the company. Relatively low investment for a HUGE return. It can't possibly cost more to make a Wrangler over a Ram Rebel. Both make t...

I actually agree with the FCA pricing structure but some people get :triggered: on this whole MSRP thing, I don't see it as a "real price" to me the real price is what they are selling for. If FCA prices the jeep at 100k and is able to get 10k turds to buy it for that more power to them, I'll wait ...

There is nothing sporty about that. Put that drivetrain in the Supra/86 or the IS/RC cars... Hell put it in the Prius itself with some bigger sway bars and it'd be interesting. A Prius Sport like that could be down in the 6.x 0-60 range and still get 45 mpg on 87. See, this kind of hybrid drivetrai...

Of course I didn't buy a hybrid either, but that's a different issue. I don't know if there even are any sporty AWD hybrids under $50k or so yet. The 330e is RWD and reviews as worse to drive and really no more efficient than a regular 330i, for example.
Rav 4 hybrid seems to do the trick
