Audi RS3 – Second Chances

This is my takeaway from Mauricio Martinez’s Audi RS3. How many of us tell ourselves ‘we can always buy another one’… but we never do. Truth is: as a car enthusiast, when you sell a car, you’re at a very vulnerable point. And it's not just emotional either lol....

The Acura Integra Type-S is coming!

The Acura Integra Type-S is coming. It should arrive in mid/later 2023. Basically - expect it to be Acura's version of the new FL5 Civic Type-R. It ain’t rocket science lol… that’s just exactly what it is. Same taco; slightly different sauce. Maybe just a little nicer...

The deadline is here – who will sell Ford EVs?

In mid-September, Ford announced that all Ford dealerships had until Halloween to decide if they wanted to become ‘EV Certified’. The giant stipulation was - it would cost each Ford dealer roughly $500,000 or $1,200,000… depending on if they wanted to be Tier-1 or...

Josh Freeman’s Toyota Chaser

My tuner friends have an overlanding problem

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ve probably noticed the explosion of the ‘overland scene’. I guess Covid really fueled the primal need for people to get outta the house. Whatever the case, the camping & outdoor market saw numbers like never before. For the...

GM is not giving up the internal combustion engine

GM President, Mark Reuss, recently said that GM is not giving up on the internal combustion engine?? He said this during an investor day just before Thanksgiving break. But wait… REWIND… doesn't this feel like the TOTAL OPPOSITE of what GM has been touting publicly?...

VIP Nissan Cima – Well ok then

If we’re being honest here, I’ve always had a hard time understanding the why behind VIP cars. Coincidentally so has Alexander Richards. Alex & I are both naturally drawn to agile/quick cars. You know… rippers! Yet having said that, here we are, looking at Alex's...

The EPA targets Ebay Motors

Sometime low-key earlier this year, the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) stopped Ebay Motors from selling any automotive products that could be deemed as 'emissions defeating'. That includes aftermarket hardware & software: Tuners, race exhausts, standalone...
