A man using tesla autonomus mode, was killed in an accident. Every one freaks out, except for the other 100 human related car accidents that happen every day. I swear people on social media are so close minded that they cant understand the process of developing new technology. sorry for the guy involved though.
///M meisterAutonomous cars... no thanks!
The day cars drive for for you is the day I'll give up on cars, how anyone finds the idea of a car that drives for you interesting is beyond me. If you want a car you don't have to drive get a taxi!

Well, Toronto Motorsports was fun!
mcaf123I ordered 2 models from ToMo just now in their sale - even with shipping to UK and taking into account any customs charges I may incur and the poor value of the £, it still cost less than to buy in the UK/Europe!

ibj40I'll order from them before I'll buy from a seller in the United States. They always have the models at the same time, and with the exchange rates, even with shipping, always a great deal.

New Panamera officially launched: http://www.topgear.com/car-news/first-look/all-new-porsche-panamera
///M meisterI love the rear spoiler, but then again I am a little bit childish. Overall I think it is an improvement on the old car, but as is the case with porsches design department it isn't drastically different. I think it looks like a cross between a 4 door 991 and a squashed Macan.

Diecast FanIt looks a lot less ugly. But the front just looks like the Cayman and the back looks like the 911. Just fatter.

Drove a Gallardo the other night...the paddles took a minute for me to learn but other than that, pretty awesome.
Well, after six months, I got a new job - but I have to move from New Jersey to Texas. NOT thrilled, but gotta earn the green...
old caddysGood luck in Texas, my brother and his family live in San Antonio, they've been there over 15 years and they like it. One good thin, if you're near Austin you can watch the US GP live.

Just got back from my trip, so the review of my AutoArt McLaren F1 will be completed this week, including side by side shots of the model AND the real car since I had chassis #22 to myself for about an hour!!
Hey is the GBP low enough yet to get some good deals on Ebay.co.uk yet? ..or will it go lower? That's one positive if you're buying from the UK At least.
mkhabbazIt's only dropped like 30 cents. It's not that big of a deal. It's still worth more than the dollar. And everything is more expensive in the uk than USA anyway. You won't be making any major deals...

D N'D-Landmkhabbaz, thank goodness I have euros instead of dollars then. ..But, I feel bad for my mates in the UK as they all(except for one) seem 'gutted'..isn't that what people in the UK say? :/ Anyways, I'll be a'looking 4 some deals!! CHEERS!

Sometimes i feel like i should start a blog for all the wierd, absurd and very confusing questions and messages i get regarding items in my parts shop (odly enough, its only the FB community that brings the questions that leave me speechless. Huge differance to DX members) :D
wrx_triggerhappyPlease do! Reading half of the comments on facebook about models I'm seriously suprised about the brain cells of some people.

Okay, this is a rant. I have a Buy It Now on eBay for $90, and I usually sell these for about 75%. A guy offers me $40; and I counter with $70; he counters with $45. Give Me a Fricking Break!
Thorst13Haha, Ebay at it's best Jim!

CraigI like the ones who low ball like that & complain that the hobby is too expensive!
Jun 27 2016 02:46 AM
Rafael OliveiraI don't even know what you're talking about, I once got an offer of 50€ for a 350€ model (it's true, I actually sold the model for over 300€). Here in Portugal people try to sell you dirt from the ground as if it is gold. when buying they all say they can buy cheaper somewhere else, that's when I block them.

Is it too much to ask that crumb producing foods never be consumed in the car?
technicaNot at all. Also candies with sugar coatings all round! Basically NO FOOD IN CAR for me lol.
