I can remember when this got reported on here a few years ago. And a bonus buried Dino (sans dead owner) as well. For a second there my brain combined the two stories and I thought she was buried in a Dino in their yard. Time to go to bed. Neat to see the original article this time though. » 2/20/15 11:24pm 2/20/15 11:24pm

I still see these fairly regularly, in non-turbo form. Twin turbos though, are getting to be pretty rare. It often seems like the people who could just barely afford a Z and got a non-turbo took much better care of the people who went with the twin turbo. » 1/30/15 11:34am 1/30/15 11:34am

I don't think it's reliability of NA's and NB's keeping people from NC's. From the way people talk, it's the weight increase. The ND might do better since it's going through some weight loss. Heck, I'd consider one if I had the money for a new car. But I don't and I have the NA. » 1/23/15 12:18pm 1/23/15 12:18pm

Yes and no. Last I heard the focus from it being 510-inspired had been abandoned for something more Z-based if I remember right. Like a Z Jr. So, unfortunately yes basically. A victim of cheaper development and chasing FRS86OMGBBQ sales I guess. » 1/09/15 10:11am 1/09/15 10:11am

Don't forget 'Silly noob, you should have searched. This problem has been covered dozens of times. There's an entire "how to" in the garage section.' And then a few comments later, if this is a nice forum like Miata.net someone will come to the new guy's aid and defend him saying that we were all noobs once.… » 1/06/15 4:02pm 1/06/15 4:02pm

I totally agree. Never something I would have optioned in Florida, but since we got the car at the end of a bodystyle, when the dealer wanted them gone, it was included at no cost. And it really is great. Doesn't even have to be winter. Sometimes your back is just sore. » 1/06/15 3:07pm 1/06/15 3:07pm

I didn't really think of this the other day, but the DRL light in my VW is about the most useless light ever. It's not really an option, but worth noting. It basically tells me that my headlights are on but the rest of the lights are off, or in other words, the lights aren't on. All the time. I'm a stickler for… » 1/06/15 11:17am 1/06/15 11:17am

I'm hoping that despite the slightly negative reviews that the new Alfa 4C has received, it will drive the prices of used Elises down in a few years (also hope that Alfa doesn't stop developing the 4C), because I'd really like to own an Elise or a more developed 4C. But for now I'm satisfied that I own one of my… » 1/05/15 9:23am 1/05/15 9:23am
