Jeeponomics 101: Eternal tirekicking for the trigger-less Jeep

We'll see if any :dill: s happen on it. The premium soft top is double thick material, really nice. It was designed for all weather conditions. I think it would be just fine. I think the first set of :dill: s will happen around 4th of July ... the second at Labor Day... but I also think year end wi...

Jeeponomics 101: Eternal tirekicking for the trigger-less Jeep

Good question. Plant volume is constantly monitored to meet demand. Overbuilding doesn't really happen much anymore across the industry. It's way too costly. If dealers aren't ordering, the vehicles aren't getting built. I don't know what dealer orders look like, but judging by the amount of 18's s...

Pretty much. Although, it was kinda cool to follow a few previously local people that I've liked from the 80's, like Steve Caballero and Lars Frederiksen. Meh, I don't miss it though. I am social media free, but for DFD. I also have friends. From time to time we send things called SMS texts to each...

One more food for thought Sparco Asseto gara in silver is what I'll do in terms of tires. Around 20lbs a wheels and 18x8 which is the ideal size for this car IMO. $192 a pop or about $800 a set. https://www.tirerack.com/images/wheels/sparco/sparco_ag_mgs_pdpfull.jpg These are interesting also... ht...

It's a tough call. DSG is outstanding. I'd personally go :manuel: because I like that in such a car. All my GTIs were :manuel: and they were great.

Not surprising to me, honestly. A DSG R is a beast.
Right...so shouldn't they pretty much all be DSG? Or the :manuel: cars are sitting while the DSG cars sell?

Did nationwide search most places have Golf R's at about 2500 off outside of my 30 mile radius. Man, DSG cars are hard to find 1 DSG car for every 3 manuals.
