I have the original key to my '89 244 (210k) but the '92 745Ti (211k, unknown mileage on the engine) came with a hardware-store key. Ah, well, the keys suit each car's character. » 11/05/11 2:09am 11/05/11 2:09am

Hopefully so. If this supplants the tC and has an out-the-door price, for a base stick-shift example, around $20k, I'll contemplate selling organs... » 11/03/11 5:38pm 11/03/11 5:38pm

I scrapped my parts car today ('89 244 with the rockers/trunk floor half-gone and everything dried out from sitting) and wished I could have given it the same sort of sendoff. I did the next best thing, though - took everything usable out of it before it left. It'll help my other '89 244 and my '92 745Ti live on. » 9/29/11 5:15am 9/29/11 5:15am

Being from New England and not acting like a total cock (most of the time), I was mistaken for Canadian last time I was in Scotland, for what that's worth. I was oddly proud of myself. » 7/30/11 11:57am 7/30/11 11:57am

Agreed. I don't believe I've ever more than doubled the speed limit of any road (my speedometer needle won't turn past 90) - but everywhere I've done more than 70 MPH has been, at least, a wide two-lane with good visibility and few entrances, and only when traffic permits. If I miscalculate or part of my car fails, I… » 5/24/11 5:48pm 5/24/11 5:48pm

They did manage, if I recall correctly, to make the all-wheel-drive model punt most of its torque to the rear wheels - that makes a cramped engine bay and half-shafts less unappealing. » 5/19/11 10:08pm 5/19/11 10:08pm

I actually discovered that my horn didn't work about a month ago as a Texas-plated F-150 tried to merge into me. A sudden swerve woke the driver up, though, and potential disaster was averted. » 4/14/11 9:07am 4/14/11 9:07am
