Small City, Big Cars... Or the other way around: '88 E28 Dinan M5

Winter is finally over here in Montreal, nice cars are finally back on the street. Sure I regulary see Ferraris, McLaren and a few AMG SLRs, along wit hthe classic Bentleys and Rolls Royce, but I don't bother taking pics of these. Today, I spotted a nice E28 M5 with what seemed to be factory made Dinan mods (wheels,… » 4/21/14 8:06pm Monday 8:06pm

There is a price to pay for having the autobahn and no speed limits. You HAVE to have a good car. Look at what happens in canada or in the US when people are allowed to do whatever they want with their cars and are not forced to have it checked regulary. Pieces of crap all over the road full of rust, cars that would… » 4/17/14 6:31pm 4/17/14 6:31pm

Driving at autobahn speeds (over 200kph average) for a couple hours in a row is extremely touring. When you arrive you are dead, exhausted. But it's good tiredness, not "I've driven for 5 hours like a zombie" tired but "I've been concentrated for so long that now that I can relax, I can't feel anything anymore" tired. It's … » 4/16/14 10:08pm 4/16/14 10:08pm

Meh... "Bordel, robert!!" Would be used on a daily basis. Putain de toi, while not technically incorrect and most likely usable is more something you might find in 19th century books than something actually used (source: been a french french (as opposed to a canadian french), for the past 30 years of my 30 year life :) ) » 4/16/14 1:17pm 4/16/14 1:17pm

The 205 is a great little car... The last great fun car produced by my fellow co-citizens. Then it went all downhill from there (and no, I'm not talking about the 306 Maxi and so on... What base model french car could be considered as "fun" after the 205? Yup, none... (and please, don't say "twingo" or I kill you! Hear me! … » 4/16/14 1:07pm 4/16/14 1:07pm

Nope, this is pretty fucked up lol... But this is a rather typical conservative radio talk shows for you right there :). Glen Beck Rush Limbaugh or Alec Jones are pretty funny too... Sounded like Howard Stern. I have a hard time understanding how anyone can listen to crap like this... » 4/14/14 5:28pm 4/14/14 5:28pm

As usual... "We, americans have clean diesel... you, europeans have been building, driving and dealing with diesel cars for the past 50 years, but you don't know what you're talking about. Our diesel are good, but for some reasons, your diesels are bad. Ours are written as "Clean", what else do you want? It says so on the … » 4/14/14 3:18pm 4/14/14 3:18pm

Looking for cheapish Ro-ro shipping company in Anvers (Antwerp)

Hi guys, I'm looking to ship an Austin Mini from Anvers to Halifax (Canada). It could also ship from LeHavre, but prices in LeHavre tend to be higher... I have some contacts already but I thought maybe some of you could help me out find new ones and cheaper prices or maybe share your personnal experiences with a few… » 4/13/14 6:26am 4/13/14 6:26am

Hitting the gym?? So that I'm not 6"3 anymore? I did not know only the 111R (which is a "federal elise" as you call it) existed in the US, nonetheless, it is not a basic elise not even an S, which are the most common ones everywhere else in the world. » 4/11/14 8:55am 4/11/14 8:55am

I don't think most people realize that, but France has pretty much no real contact or relation with Quebec... Sure french newspaper and magazines are sold here, and we have an exchange program for students between France and Quebec, but other than that, nothing much. » 4/10/14 5:39pm 4/10/14 5:39pm

Fuel pump died. Same thing happened to my friend's. In your Volvo it's located in the trunk, right next to the spare wheel, on your right. It's fairly easy to change. You might have to change the joint too. It's a 2 hours job at most if you've never done it. » 4/10/14 5:32pm 4/10/14 5:32pm

I have no problems with Oppo being about anything you want... I do have a problem with Jalopnik becoming a car/plane/boat/a few other things website instead of just a car site though. The past few weeks have been quite a bit less interesting for me as I don't come to Jalopnik to read about general news or plane and… » 4/09/14 8:55pm 4/09/14 8:55pm
