All kidding aside, that SUCKS. I think I'd cry if that was my $80K car that lasted 5min without a scratch :-(

$150 is a steal. Took me 4+ hours to do mine. Seems more common to expect to pay $250-400 for the job. It's doable, but not quick and easy. I just did my tundra, and my dad's camry, and the camry was...

Usually the higher torque gives the car a "faster" feel with less effort...better feel driving around town and passing on the freeway. The IS350 is similar in performance, but requires a little...

I can guarantee you the OP won't be doing this to his new $80K car right off the truck...I would NEVER buy this car with more than 1-2 miles on it.

I was thinking the same thing while reading this review. I thought these cars had ~1K break in period where it is not good to push them? That's what a friend said about his new M4...I assumed the...

Love it. Have the same car, but the 430. How's the ride with the 20s? Did you have to do any fender work to avoid rubbing?

I have 5 kids, and still have my 3GS. Just need one vehicle to take lots of them...rarely have a carseat in mine, but I have, and it actually fits fine.

That center console looks 100x better than the current rcf. That screen instead of the dated buttons of the radio on the rcf.

That was one of the more avoidable crashes I've seen. Could have missed that RX with a '70s Cadillac....you obviously weren't watching as closely as your dash cam. Rx fault...technically yes. Grandma...

$14.5K for a Chevy with 100K sounds like you already rolled negative equity into it. I'm guessing that rolling $5-6K into another new loan is also an insurance issue. This is like huge negative...

Awhile back someone posted a really cool plate mount for show cars. It screws to the underside of the car, and had an arm that comes up to hold the plate. Super easy to remove, and looked decent. I'd...

I paid $1500 for my 3year/30K warranty. Make sure you read the fine print. Mine covers EVERYTHING except the Nav unit. Used it twice already, and had no problems.
