    Hi Guys, I am new to the forum and desperately need your expert advice. I am finally looking into purchasing my first German car and I can't be more excited! I live in Ontario, Canada and currently drive a Dodge Avenger SXT (Boring!!). But I am torn on the age old question..... BMW or Mercedes?? I am trying to decide between a used 2011 or 2012 C-Class or 3 Series but I just don't know what to get. Please help me answer these questions: - Which one is better for driving in the snow? - Which one tends to break down more/require more maintenance? - Which one costs less to maintain? - Do either of them come with built in XM Satellite Radio or Bluetooth? (Dodge has both and is a huge selling feature for me) - Overall, what do YOU feel is the better model/brand? Thank you guys, looking forward to hearing from you!

    Pm me for pix of interested $4400 shipped. This comes with clipped billet 20T compressor wheels (9 blade) and install kit with everything needed (even the VTT shirts are still in box) completely maxed out. Still in box from VTT with packing peanuts and shrink wrapped. Keep your cores and avoid the wait (took mine months to get). Build these on his web site and select no cores. These will still be cheaper. I am going a new direction with custom turbos. If no one wants these I will just send back to Tony wanted to give someone the option tho to have them immediately. If you ordered these today they would be just under $5000 dollars and you would owe your turbos. Keep your turbos and save money and time. Ready to ship.

    Today, at Mercedes Benz of Rockville Centre, which installed my Renntech full tune and Renntech Sport Mufflers, we took a video, from behind the car, of the car from startup to revving. Again, you need to listen with a sound system with a subwoofer to appreciate and hear all of the sound.

    650 horsepower already out of the W205 C63 AMG M177 engine with just a tune? Considering that the W205 C63 AMG has 510 horsepower stock along with 516 lb-ft of torque getting 650 crank horsepower from the 4.0 liter twin turbocharged and direct injected V8 with tuning is well within reason. We see similar numbers from the Audi RS6/RS7 and their 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 engine although the Audis send power to all four wheels. The thing is, although the horsepower in theory is possible there is no proof. Is the ECU already cracked? Is anyone flash tuning the cars that have barely even hit the market (and certainly are not available worldwide yet)? To BenzBoost this seems like wishful thinking. Australia's International Autohaus is the one making this claim stating the software is already available and they have backed that claim up with a picture of the W205 engine bay which amounts to no proof at all. Evotech is suspected to be providing the tuning. We know tuners are already starting on the M177/M178 engines and they are even preparing turbo upgrades but a 650 horsepower claim without a dynograph or any proof is nothing more than tuner optimism at this point. It certainly looks like they jumped the gun.

    I thought at first it was only blue and black. But now I've seen the same image change colour. I can make it flop it seems by scrolling on this NP article. Vice has a good article also.

    You may notice some of the front pages are incomplete or missing articles. The forum software was upgraded so I will have to manually reconfigure some things. On the bright side we should have many bugs resolved. Just be patient as I update the front pages manually back to how they were.

    I think this article is a pretty appropriate response to the internet backlash to Lotus' new development driver, Carmena Jordan. Why can't a mediocre female driver get a fair chance to do her job?
