As automotive design goes, at least in general shapes, there are few as distinctive as Lamborghini's wedges. Sure, there were other cars with similar profiles, such as Lancia's Strato's Zero HF, some Listers, or Vectors, but all of them were surely described at some point as "that car resembling a Lamborghini". »
The involuntary camera reflex quickly took over whence I spied this super-clean '78 Scirocco S in Sonoma County this weekend. Bask in its clean, jalop daily driverness. Great exhaust note as well, but my camera failed to do that aspect justice. »
Does this feel off to anyone else? Found this since everyone has been talking about GLIs. It's like they're making fun of themselves or special editions in general. »
Step 1: Beg your uncle to help you move your car from your place of work to your house so you don't get fired.
Step 2: Have him bring his car dolly, and get it up on the dolly with relative ease.
Step 3: Have the fenders be too low to ratchet the wheels straps down properly.
Step 4: Unload the damn thing all over again,… »
It should have been so simple. We used True Car to get a good deal. We came in knowing what our trade in was worth. We knew what we wanted. They even gave us the name of the dealer we were going to meet. How could it go so wrong? Let me tell you about the hell I just went through at the local VW dealership. »
A high school buddy of mine has found a 2014 Jetta TDI 6spd for just a hair under $20k. I think he's making a mistake because VW reliability. What are people's experiences with VW's diesel motors? »

Thanks to the Blipshift crew, my second design just got published - I'm proving to be a resilient sperm. »
With Audi being owned by VW and VW owning so much great diesel technology, why not push a little of it into an R8? Well, the folks over at Audi have decided it is time for that to happen. The 2016 model year will feature a diesel variant of the R8. No one is certain yet what engine will be used, but it is currently… »
So, I'm not a stance-bro, and unlike my dad I'm not a Volkswagon lover, but my buddy TJ (a Porsche mechanic and air-cooled nut) dragged me to Wolfsgart... I mean it's within walking distance of my house in Essex Junction, VT, so What the hell! There was some fun stuff there, some horrible stuff, and a couple genuinely… »
Same flyer from the same dealer for the same service. Just found it very ironic. Also funny, dad no longer owns the Passat. We got rid of it in 2006. »
Just got back from getting an iced coffee, and even though I parked in the end corner, the right side of the rear bumper just got badly scuffed.. I'm beyond enraged right now, and the asshat didn't leave a note either. 6 month old car. So difficult to keep my cool. There are surveillance cameras there, I want to get… »
When I worked there, I was lucky enough that this came in one day - I doubt I'll ever get this close to an LMP1 for a long time! Their showroom had some great classics on display from VW and sister marques and were rotated fairly often »
