First day in two months the high has been below 55 and first day in almost 3 its snowed.  Hopefully this bad luck isn't a sign of how things will go with the new toy i just took delivery of.. 

Moved too far from downtown to not have a car, and I narrowed the list down to a Subaru or a Subaru, after realizing an AWD Wagon was what I needed. The BMW that was perfect was just too much of a ris

Took almost two hours and an orbital buffer to remove cone residue from the rocker panels (or at least the visible parts) but my car is looking pretty good and not battle worn. Of course I'll probably fuck it up in 2 weeks at the next round but at least the baseline will be better. 798168f128ecc81010f7bc9b5ab44c38.jpg
Washed the other cars too. Love the relatively cheap Meguiar's stuff gives such a nice shine for basically no work and their scratch stuff is great.

The new Audi RSTT definitely has my interest.

Love the tweaked styling. 0-60 in 3.6 seconds, from a small 5 cylinder. The Jaguar F type SVR, with it's 575 ponies is only .1 second quicker.

And love the diamond stitched interior!

Audi's interiors are impeccable.  The one thing I struggle with them over is how much they charge for add'l power.  They go crazy differentiating the sporty version from the base version when it comes to the pocket book...

I have a friend with the old TTrs.  That 5 cylinder is the real deal.  I have contemplated picking up a RS3 when they hit the market.

Ford is doing a 2018 Focus RS special edition with a LSD. If that doesn't knock it out of class in the BS class it will be a total ringer. Dammit I was committed to the ST for 2 more seasons.

Be strong, DH!  

I have a similar dilemma.  Love my 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT.  AWD with the 6.4L HEMI and the 8-speed trans with paddles and big Brembos.   Maybe 11K miles.  They're coming out with the Hellcat (supercharged) version of the Jeep called the Trackhawk...ugh.  

Must......be......strong

Drive Tribe has a nice set of comparo vids that include the TT RS 

Not very worthwhile when the transmission offerings in the videos aren't comparable. Porsche PDK and BMW DCT cars are quite a bit faster than their manual counterparts.

Looks like the new Honda Civic Type R is headed stateside.  There's a convenient vid in the photo gallery for the less than motivated.

One thing Honda can do is build motors.  Really impressive mills they make IMO.  Not a big fan of the looks, but that's just me....old school.
