Meanwhile I get a ticket for 42 in a 45 (it was a 25mph school zone, but I pulled onto it from a side road and didn't see any school zone signs between where I joined the road and the school, and I was unfamiliar with the area...also, it was 5 minutes before the school zone ended, and all the buses were done running… » 10/20/14 5:11pm Monday 5:11pm

Under normal (parking lot, normal starts from a light, stop and go traffic, etc) it probably uses it to save wear and tear on the clutches of the DCT. Ironically, going slowly tends to cause more problems than fast in everyday driving when it comes to clutch packs. » 10/20/14 1:55pm Monday 1:55pm

Exactly, the only people that would care know your are faking it. The people that don't care, don't care. And if you still do it knowing this, you need professional help...unless you are ironically badging an 80s Chrysler Minivan (I can find the picture), that's funny. But there's no irony in badging a 318… » 10/15/14 3:08pm 10/15/14 3:08pm

Well, I would hope so. The sound generator on the M5/M6 doesn't use a sample of the actual engine's sound but what the engineers wanted it to sound like (they've fixed this with the M3/M4/i8 which just use amplified samples of their respective engine's actual sounds). They could do this because it's really hard to… » 10/09/14 12:27pm 10/09/14 12:27pm

Super curious how the new $129 GoPro stands up to its brothers

Got one coming tomorrow. Haven't seen any reviews about the cheaper one. I love my 3+ Black but don't see the point getting a Hero4 Black if I never use most of the features and mostly record 1080p/30 anyway. You can get almost 4 of these for the price of the top dog. Plus (in theory) the battery life will be… » 10/07/14 5:51pm 10/07/14 5:51pm

The speed limit reading camera and HUD are going to ruin me

One of my biggest pet peeves is not knowing what the speed limit is when driving unfamiliar roads. Not only does it use historical speed limits from the Nav, it has a camera that reads signs and updates in areas like construction where the speed changes. WAZE tells me "Police reported ahead" look down, adjust speed.… » 10/06/14 10:51pm 10/06/14 10:51pm

I am planning on a write up soon from an ownership perspective. I've put 880 miles on it so far. (Travis' is going up sometime this week). That would be cool, have you started/finished yours? I'm in the garage taking pictures but haven't got the text ready yet. » 10/06/14 6:32pm 10/06/14 6:32pm
