If you mean the dent on the passenger side front quarter panel, yes.

As far as I can tell there's no dent on the hood.

EDIT: Just kidding, you're right. I checked and there is a small dent on...

KBB is a pretty useless metric for a clean, stock EM1. People list their modded EM1's with similar mileage for 6k all the time.

I can overlook a slightly flimsy interior if I can find a mechanically solid M3. And I think the exterior looks fine.



If I find an M3 I will have it inspected thoroughly. And the ITR is like a...

I owned a 2011 A3 sportback 6MT. Had an intake and Stage 1 tune on it. It was fast and hell (when the front tires had traction) and had a great interior, but I sold it at roughly 25k miles. Had...

I barely know anything about the older Focus SVT models. They seem pretty similar on paper to the EP3 Civic Si hatch, except the Focus has a 5 door option. Basically just an economy hatch with a...

Well, compared to my S2000, the new rumored one will surely be quite a bit heavier (3000+ lb) and lower revving (8k rpm on a production turbo 4 banger isn't really feasible). True on the AWD;...

Even if these rumors end up being true, which I think is maybe 5% likely, I just don't see the car appealing to the same kinds of drivers that the original S2000 did. Hybrid, AWD, likely no...

I voted V12 but on second thought I think I prefer V10's almost entirely because of two engines: the 4.8L 1LR-GUE in the LFA and the 5.7L 980 in the Carrera GT. Both sound absolutely demonic at 8000+...
