I'm pretty sure this sort of thing applies to any group that self-identifies with something. They all fixate on being anti-establishment, subversive or unique but quickly form their own homogenized culture. This is the fundamental reason why these levels even exist. If there weren't enough people doing, wearing… » 4/14/15 9:46am 4/14/15 9:46am

It’s only a wagon if it’s got the ride height and overall stance of a sedan. By contrast, the Audi Allroad, a wagon aspiring to be a crossover, sits lower than this car. Plus, this Infiniti suffers from the typical bloated crossover look. So, any relevant measure this is a crossover.

I saw a new Murano yesterday and felt like it was an assault on the senses. There was more going on with that car than I've seen on most supercars.

Neat little video. Unfortunately, the pair featured costs 139 euros. I've seen worse, but that's still shockingly expensive. Even with a somewhat more involved manufacturing process than your average injected molded glasses I can't see why these should cost anything over $50. Especially when you consider that they… » 3/31/15 2:25pm 3/31/15 2:25pm

Congratulations to Germany. There's no reason they should have caved to F1's demands. If this had happened in the US, organizers would have demanded that tax payers help foot the bill. They'd try to sell us on job creation or something, but the real motivation would be lining the pockets of those few individuals. » 3/20/15 3:15pm 3/20/15 3:15pm
