IMO, he needs to be paid MORE than what he paid for his vehicle considering his time and aggreviation. (Not to mention, the vehicle is unsafe to drive and posses a danger to himself & others on the road.) They (Porsche/VW) are crazy allowing this

They should give him a 911 Turbo plus some cash or free whatever for his trouble. Unacceptable from any manufacturer but Porsche should be ashamed of passing a piece of trash like this through QC then saddling someone with it. Someone needs to loose

I had Lasik about 12 years ago. I did opt for having one eye "tuned" for distance and one for reading. It was odd for the first couple of months until I got used to it, but would not change a thing. YMMV, but I had zero issues after surgery

Buy what makes you happy, and what your wife will use. Mine will have an easier time using what I bought since it has little things like a gas gauge and an easy to fill gas tank. The competition in that price range wasn't as easy to use.

A lot of good wisdom and advice here already - but if I could add my two cents worth - what makes you nervous in public? Rather than masking the problem with distractions, (television, ipod, etc.), embrace it, explore it. Do you feel this way becaus

Had them installed yesterday. No real drama. Too soon to tell as I've only driven them about 50 miles. The ride is softer than the outgoing Conti DWS 195-50-16 tires. Some of that is the likely the slightly higher aspect ratio. Quieter too, but

The product data sheets provide performance information you can't get from any oil analysis, things like low temperature performance and HTHS. UOAs provide data on how an oil holds up in service, which allows a user some guidance as to how long a giv

Why don't they put the bug solvent in the winter mix? Seems like they do it in the blue water, only, so there's a "reason for being". I run water in May because of all the pollen.

If they don't remove the wheels from the new vehicles, do they let the air out down to zero then refill with nitrogen? How is that good for the tire? I can see nitrogen being an easy step in the filling of replacement tires, but...
