  1. Kia News: 2018 Kia Stinger GT Is Something Very Different (UPDATE)

    I can't wait to actually see this. It looks great, even if it's a bit of a mish-mash of styling cues.
  2. The design is exactly what they needed to do with this model. It actually looks a class above the Equinox for once. The push-button transmission on the other hand... Who actually wants that? It seems like a huge miscalculation with its unergonomic design. Seriously... there are plus and minus buttons for gear selection. WTF.
  3. What's your most feared driver stereotype?

    Any driver of any jacked up truck ever.
  4. Very good looking car. I can't wait to see this wearing Buick badges. I want that wagon in the spy shots.
  5. Happy Birthday to our own Black Viper

    Thanks, y'all. I feel like it was just yesterday that I was being berated by the elder forum masters for my young foolishness.
  6. Want to Hear Somebody Take a Dump on the CT6?

    I think the problem with the CT6 is its lack of commitment to any one segment. It's not quite a flagship, not quite an executive in size, price, and features. It's almost like the original CTS in that its size is more similar to the class above its pricing. This has its advantages and disadvantages, as such. As far as CUE, obviously the more you use it and become accustomed to it, it's not going to be an issue for you. I, personally, can't speak on any of the newly released models with the supposedly updated software, myself. I've only had experience with 2016 and prior systems. Those, however, were truly awful. There is no way around that. Were they unusable? No, of course, not. If you bought the car, you'd likely get used to it just as many have gotten used to MFT over the years. That doesn't make it better than competitors systems. If you want to truly judge the system, don't do so without spending equal time with Mercedes', BMW's, Audi's, and especially Volvo's infotainment systems. Take away the bias, and you'll probably find they are much more sorted and intuitive systems. Lexus, Infiniti, and Acura, on the other hand are just as irritating as CUE, if not more so. With that said, I hope that CUE has been sorted out well enough with the most recent updates. Again, I haven't had a chance to use the system in a CT6 or XT5 yet so it could very well be. I've seen a few reviews that noted various improvements, so there is hope to be had.
  7. Want to Hear Somebody Take a Dump on the CT6?

    Here's another comparison with a similar verdict: Autoguide: Genesis G90 vs. Cadillac CT6
  8. Rip Off or Compliment?

    Cadillac design is starting to get stale, in my opinion. The switch to the wreath-less crest brought with it new grills that do nothing to help this problem. The ATS, from the head-on, looks absolutely dopey. The rest of the line-up doesn't suffer from that issue, but as a whole, they're rather staid. The V-cars manage to still stir the soul to some degree, but the overall design hasn't really been fresh. With Cadillac's Escala concept, I think they acknowledge that there is a need to at least tweak the design moving forward.
  9. It's nice they're finally trying, but the Sentra is just an awful car to start with. There's maybe one car it outclasses and that is the Corolla. Even then, it's a pretty close race to decide which is more garbage than the other.
  10. I'm slightly underwhelmed. It's restrained, sure, but I was hoping there would be more of a gap between regular trims, the Si and the Type-R. This seems to be more Civic Sport hatchback plus, but applied to the coupe. I would have wished for a more stepped approach. It does, however, fall in line with Honda's tradition of Si trims, none of which have been differentiated much from lower trims. Eh, considering the competition, the Civic is far from bland or dull. Cruze, Focus, Elantra, Forte, Corolla, Impreza, Sentra, Jetta, and Golf are all much more mainstream and looking. The only car with more emotion in the design is the Mazda3. And I'm pretty sure they're making bank. Just saying...
  11. Regarding price, my biggest question would be how much the shocks alone add to the sticker. They are of the same variety of those found on the Z/28 and that car commanded a pretty penny. Granted, there was a lot more to go into it than just shocks, but I have to wonder.
  12. Cosmetically, it's okay. Mechanically, it's okay. Overall, it's okay. It's... easily produceable. Give it a bit more power, AWD, and a manual transmission and then we'll talk.
  13. So, I like the idea as it's a smart move all things considered. On the other hand, I can't help but think 90's Geo Metro when I look at the rear. I understand the need for plastic bits to make a pseudo-crossover look more convincing, but making the entire rear bumper unpainted looks trashy. The front bumper is much better and looks like they actually tried.
  14. Announcement

    Alright, I've been trying to get semi-professional photos, but I haven't really had the time. Fighting work and daylight, it's been nearly impossible. Combine that with the election changing some of my plans, I may not have a chance before winter hits. So, with that said, I might as well just spill the beans. This will seem backwards to everyone, but hey, why not? First, I'm parking the GTI for the winter to keep the miles off it. Originally, it was just that simple, but now the plan is to sell it come spring once its value stabilizes, if it does. It doesn't really seem logical for this car's value to drop in the winter, but it seems to. I've never understood it. It was great in the snow, it's not exactly a RWD roadster or anything. Second, speaking of a RWD roadster, I bought a Miata. Currently, it's sole duty is as a winter beater. Yes, I am crazy and yes, I am going to freeze my ass off. I also have my doubts about making it through the winter, but I've already committed to the plan so there's no going back now. I managed to make it through a Pennsylvania winter with an 80's Cutlass, so hopefully I can survive a Michigan winter in this. It's mostly flat here, so that gives me some hope. Hills were the only issue I ever really ran into with the Olds. Here's a cell phone picture: Wish me luck...
  15. Random Thoughts Thread

    It is understandable considering the popular vote. The latest numbers have Clinton at 60,143,544, Trump at 59,830,187 nationwide. It is easy to see why that is being thought of as not fair. It's not—at all—and something Trump has acknowledged himself during the 2012 election. Imagine how it feels, knowing your vote (and 313,357 others) doesn't matter. With that said, despite the broken system, it is how we decide elections unless someone fixes it. Until then, we have to accept it no matter how much it hurts.
