Even with the configurator the website is still a little short on information. And checking inventory is pretty bad. You should be able to specify inventory within "xx many miles of (zip code)." Unless I'm missing something you can't do that, and it just tells you there are none available nearby. » 2/26/15 5:29pm Thursday 5:29pm

As a resident of the Tampa Bay area and frequenter of Tampa Airport, I can assure you it's one of the nicer airports around the country. But forget the free lounge food, at TIA its all about Shula's Steakhouse or Cigar City Brewing. Why would you take free food when you can get more credit card rewards by paying for… » 2/26/15 3:26pm Thursday 3:26pm

When you stop and think about the fact that we sent a robot to another planet and we are controlling it from earth and sending back "selfies" and conducting all sorts of scientific experiments and research remotely, it is absolutely mind blowing. It exists so far outside of our personal space that we live in each day… » 2/25/15 12:25pm 2/25/15 12:25pm

2004 Cooper S - Help Me Make A Poor Decision

I have a dilemma. I traded my sweet, sweet baby (BMW 335) last year for a family wagon (4Runner) because I have a one year old, another on the way at the end of March, and a dog to haul around. The 4Runner is my daily. My lovely wife has an '08 Focus. Soon it will no longer make sense for me to drive the 4Runner… » 2/12/15 11:25am 2/12/15 11:25am

The best non-cliched line I have ever read in a car review was a quote from a photographer in a Car and Driver comparo of diesel SUVs (Touareg, X5, Cherokee, ML350, and Cayenne). He purportedly described the sound of the diesel engines as "skeletons wanking in a metal filing cabinet." It makes me laugh just to type it. » 2/11/15 2:52pm 2/11/15 2:52pm

As a Florida resident, I can confirm that you should absolutely skip driving through Orlando and Miami. Literally the two worst places in Florida that you could ever want to drive. Stick to the pandhandle, west/gulf coast, keys, and Jacksonville. I-95 from Miami up to about Melbourne and any road in a 50 mile… » 2/10/15 2:29pm 2/10/15 2:29pm

Congrats, I have a 13 month old and another on the way in March. My little dude is hilarious and keeps me laughing non-stop. He says "brrrrrm brrrrrm" whenever he sees cars, which fills me with joy. And, there is literally nothing better in the world than a hug or a kiss from your kid after a bad day, or hell, on… » 1/28/15 8:54pm 1/28/15 8:54pm

You're thinking about this all wrong. I plan to be an overbearing, hyper-critical, sports dad that forces my children to practice golf/tennis/basketball/etc. for 10 hours a day in the hope that they go pro and sign a filthy endorsement deal with Nike/Gatorade/Hooters. Depending on the sport this could happen… » 1/28/15 8:49pm 1/28/15 8:49pm
