Awesome review. I picked up a 2015 Golf TDI in late October and have just hit 10,500 miles on it yesterday. It's got the 6 speed manual as well — really makes the torquey-but-gutless TDI fun to drive. I've had a blast in that car so far... »
That gunman that comes out from behind the pillar with an UZI in his hand...is that Johnny Knoxville? »
Interesting sponsorship...Visit Romania.
I have. It's an interesting country. They should do a hill climb on the Transfagarasan Highway in Romania. »
Tried to hold out as long as I could for a BMW 120d hatch.
Ended up with a 2015 VW Golf TDI.
FWD, but fun enough to drive...BMW, you lost a sale. »
I just picked up a 2015 Golf TDI 6MT in November and I have to say, I'm pretty impressed with the infotainment system. My girlfriend has a 2010 Jetta SportWagen TDI which she bought new, and ever since she bought it I've hated the infotainment system and a few other quirks the car has — they were all fixed on the MK7… »
Last week, French DJ David Guetta released his new music video for the single "Dangerous", and it's got a decidedly unrealistic Formula One slant to it. »
Is it just me, or does the video in the original post look EXTREMELY rendered? It looks normal enough to start, but when the water comes into view something just doesn't work...the shading isn't right. The vehicles moving around on the ground seem too smooth...
It just doesn't add up. »
Huh, funny, this sounds like another case of a big business trying to stifle competition — shades of GM/Tesla. »
I *believe* most of Frogg Toggs stuff is Tyvek?
It's great gear for throwing over protective riding gear in a storm! »
Oh, you said America. My first thought was to remember my incredible hatred of the entire Charles de Gaulle Airport. Such a design/layout/logistics nightmare. »
On my 1150GS Adventure or F800ST, I ride in a Motoport Kevlar Mesh jacket with Motoport Stretch Kevlar pants. Motoport gloves, a Rev'It Athos Air vest, BMW All-round boots, and a Bell RS-1 helmet. »
My whole takeaway from this article: Sam Smith owns a KLR? *shakes head* What color is the milk crate strapped to the back of yours? »
I can only imagine the driver of the Canadian fire truck...he's going to be saying "Sorry!" for about two weeks. »
Hmmm, piss off his rich political buddies (some of whom undoubtedly own dealerships or get contributions from dealership) by voting to let Tesla sell directly to consumers, or piss off his rich political buddies (none of whom, apparently, opposed the bill in the house or senate) by voting against them (i.e. NOT… »
When these guys are flying cross country (Miramar - Key West) how fast do they get there? 2-3 hours? Do they book it, or take their time? And do they need to stop for fuel on the way?
I guess I always assumed that they flew commercial when traveling cross country like that...now I'm curious about the specifics! »
Yes yes yes yes yes. The more trucks/buses/etc. that we can convert to more fuel efficient propulsion, the better.
I was at Yosemite last month and the shuttles and buses and open-top tour vehicles are all diesel electric hybrids, but they're still loud and they do still pollute directly into the park. I'd love to see… »
