"My car gift has always been looking like someone who won the lottery ten years ago..." may be one of the best line's I've heard Ed utter, and that's saying something when that list includes the phrase "are those butt implants?"

I disagree with your Koenigsegg vs Bugatti comment. And if you ever need a car my tip is to buy a Volvo, Volvo is the sulotion to every car problem, Volvo is life, Volvo is love, a Volvo is safe. ---------------------------------------------------------------- Du gamla, Du fria, Du fjällhöga nord, Du tysta, Du glädjerika sköna! Jag hälsar Dig, vänaste land uppå jord, Din sol, Din himmel, Dina ängder gröna. Din sol, Din himmel, Dina ängder gröna. Du tronar på minnen från fornstora dar, då ärat Ditt namn flög över jorden. Jag vet att Du är och Du blir vad Du var. Ja, jag vill leva jag vill dö i Norden. Ja, jag vill leva jag vill dö i Norden. Jag städs vill dig tjäna, mitt älskade land, Din trohet till döden vill jag svära. Din rätt, skall jag värna, med håg och med hand, Din fana, högt den bragderika bära. Din fana, högt den bragderika bära. Med Gud skall jag kämpa, för hem och för härd, för Sverige, den kära fosterjorden. Jag byter Dig ej mot, allt i en värld Nej, jag vill leva jag vill dö i Norden! Nej, jag vill leva jag vill dö i Norden!

Totally agree about Range Rovers HOWEVER; after owning 2 L322's in supercharged trim, I've still yet to have any major issues.. Most of the issues happen on pre 2007's.. Never buying one of those!

"Look at all these things that have already been done" - me looking at a hawkeye WRX. It especially seemed good because it was almost all done in the past 9 months. Except when I get there all the work was done with boy racer parts. I figured, I was going to do a lot of similar stuff so I'll give it a chance, until i stall it every 3rd start because the clutch is like squatting 150 lbs and it had a grip range of about 2 mm - he must have been planning on putting an enormous turbo on it and ran out of money.

LMFAOO!!!😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣 I buy cars the exact same way. I just picked up 91 eclipse gst (dsm). Just like okd AMG's, DSM's arent exactly known for their reliability. The only reason i got it was the kid had it listed for 1500 and had replace the rack and pinion, power steering, alternator, battery, timing belt, waterpump, and tires. Only problem was it had low compression on one cylinder. Now its time to roll the dice. Either its a piston ring, which would call for a complete engine rebuild and a bunch of "while youre in there" expences ($5000+) or, a rebuilt cylinder head ($1200). To minimize my losses i traded the kid my perfectly running 98 neon RT. He was too happy to let me take it off his hands for a running vehicle lol. Took it to the tuner. And got good news "it past the leak-down test. It just needs a cylinder head rebuild" so in a couple of weeks ill have a perfectly running DSM for 1200 bucks.

You'd have a hard time convincing me a Bugatti is better than a Koenigsegg. Perhaps it's a better, more useful car, but I'd rather have a koenigsegg anyday. Bugatti's have too much insulation, too much luxury, too much weight. Koenigsegg's to me much better present the most extreme possible performance in an automobile. Bugattis are just bentleys with a lot of horsepower.

There's something all too funny about watching Ed declare the Range Rover to be among the world's best cars after watching Hoovie detail all the things wrong with his (mechanically totaled was how he described it), and then burying it in a hole that originally held his LeBaron convertible. That said, I don't know why I have never owned a S Class Mercedes of some sort. I've enjoyed each one I've driven, and I've driven most generations of S Class at least once (still need to check the W140 and the latest generation off the list). It's not as if it'd be that much more to maintain than some Volkswagens, like the B5.5 Passat I recently got out of my life. Good luck with that S65...
