Unfortunately the news is not gonna be good, unless the engine shut down soon enough to avoid major damage. Minimum is a cylinder head rebuild. Maximum is... well, another motor.

Yes I think this forum does see a lot of hyper-partisan loyalty like other luxury brands.

Oooh, that is quite a conundrum you've got yourself there. I actually have a bit of a soft spot for those older LS400's. You would be gaining ultra smooth ride and V8 power.

I kinda like the...

I'm thinking the car's emergency brake assist kicked in because it detected you were trying to make a panic stop.

Another German guy leaves for Hyundai

I'm usually over in the 2GS forum but this is stunning news. Remember when Peter Schreyer left Audi for Hyundai/Kia in 06? Here's the latest:

Oh well thread drift so just one final parting thought. Jeremy Clarkson is paid by the British taxpayer to make pro-Brit fodder. A very creative exciting program that I've watched many times. But...

Not fond of the Briddish but here's an ole Top Gear review comparing just these two cars. Before the buffoonery era of Jeremy Clarkson and his Astons and Jaguars.

Let's see. I did a hodge podge because I wasn't sure what the issue was; fuel filter or pump or both. So it came out to $125 for the pump from Rock Auto. Filter was from Ebay at around $25? And...

That's a tough call. The 400 has always looked more substantial to me. Very upscale and "Germanic". The 98 was a good year. They updated the styling a little bit.

It's for certain territories not a blanket recall. High humidity + a cheaper substance for airbag inflation in extreme temps = problems.
