    I just got an interview for a job about 100 miles away from me, but the salary is so huge I'll take the gig if I get it. Also, I got laid off in June so I'm a week or two away from getting a deli counter job anyway and beggars and choosers...you know that story. ;) So the question is, if I have...

    Eh? All of a sudden, it seems my car stereo (Kenwood DPX300U) doesn't want to control my iPod. It reads it just fine, but I have to use the iPod to control the tunes playing. F that peasant noise :lol: I *think* this coincided with my new Hackintosh, but I'm not 100%. This might fix it, but...

    As the title says, a deer ran out in front of me last friday on my way to work at 6am, somehow it managed to do enough damage to total my car. $6700 worth to be exact, which they said was 95% of the value of the vehicle. Sucks that my 7 year old, paid off vehicle that I payd $19,000 for new is...

    It's that time of year to put some products on the car. Did my truck yesterday, did the wife's car today. But my truck's boring and we don't want to see pictures of that. In the fall I like to get a good paint sealant on, then top with a carnuba wax. Although it's not technically a sealant...

    So I'm due for some new wheels. I have a VW Tiguan currently, which I like but since I'm not in a band anymore, I don't really need that much space. I'm thinking of moving to a smaller hatchback, which would get me better gas mileage and make it easier to park in the city. So far, I've looked...

    So We're buying a house, and it looks like we've finally found one where we can get an OK (not great, but the area just has nothing for sale in our range, and we love the place) deal on a house. It's ~7mi to work, the office has showers and is putting in a bike closet, and I'd like to start...

    This is so sick. One of the best things about this show is (was...) that all three of these guys can absolutely drive their asses off. Clarkson screaming at the Lambo and himself at the 5:30 mark or so totally rules - no jokes, no gags, just a guy and a car hammering it at the top of their...

    I bought an '01 Xterra this spring, and the kid who I bought it from had an aftermarket radio/cd play, amp, and subs installed in it. Everything worked so I didn't think to question anything. A couple of weeks ago my subs went out I noticed that RCA wires were dangling from under neath the...

    Well I've exhausted most of my GAS for guitars in the recent past but when I was trying to find a hotrod or classic car for a photo shoot it was a nightmare. Then my passion for cars was rekindled and I started looking around for a new project. I'm a Chrysler fan boy plus they were far more...

    So after kicking around the idea of trading in/selling my E92 in lieu of something better suited to haul bikes, I drove a few things and hated them all. ~35k just doesn't get you enough these days for the money, and I'm just not a hybrid person. So, I sold my truck instead. :lol: I'm keeping...

    It is actually not in very bad condition at all. It started getting a crowd rather quickly. Even the ducks started coming over to check it out!

    Damnit :lol: So… I'm pretty sure I've got frozen fuel lines in my car. The radio works, the headlights work, and I do get sounds from the car as it tries to start, so I'm pretty sure my battery is ok. Definitely draining on each start-up attempt, but OK. Currently, I've got a space heater...

    In a quest to get my e39 running, which is going horribly may I add, I pulled the battery off my E46 as a temporary measure. I thought nothing of it, as I have a key to get back in the boot, right? Wrong. Closed the boot, with no battery attached. I now have no way to get back in the boot, as...
