Audi called out BMW in a billboard, so BMW fights back. Clever.

This is a pretty cool design idea for car doors. The Disappearing Car Door folds under the car, letting you have max clearance to get out and in your car.

Let me give you a hint... The BMW doesn't win.

Old story but I don't remember if I posted this before. Basically someone paid a couple of people to drive their new S4 from the purchase/ship spot to where they lived. So these people, in order to protect from rock chips and the like completely covered the S4 with blue tape.

If you've never seen TopGear, it's a fantastic British show about cars. Fifth Gear is similar. You can probably find a bunch of Top Gear and Fifth Gear clips on YouTube but this site has a great collection available to download AND the download speeds are fast.

Ready to Fix posted by bichen
If you're feeling like a gambler, then you might want to check out Ready to Fix. They basically get cars that have been in taken in by the insurance companies (after an accident), stolen and later recovered, or damaged by things like floods. They sell for a lot less than the car is worth, but they all need work. How much work, you don't really know. You can check out a list of their cars here.

BusinessWeek has a sneak peek at the 2007 super cars. Of course these are the ones that are just ever so slightly expensive.

This article is a bit old but, it's still relatively interesting. It's an article about immobilizers in cars. You know how the new cars have chips in the keys so you can't drive the car even if you copy the key? Well, car thieves can get around it, and the big problem is insurance companies don't think they can so if a car thief steals your car which has that immobilizer chip, insurance companies might think you're lying.

If you need your car serviced, it's probably best to avoid Jiffy Lube. I've been there a few times for oil changes and they did ask me if I wanted to change something that really didn't need changed (but I let them since it was like $19.99, though in retrospect, I probably shouldn't have). But the bigger issue is... a lot of Jiffy Lubes will charge you for service and NEVER DO IT. Here's the report. Video embedded in web page.

Here is a tale of a guy who beat up a guy that shot up his car with a high powered bb gun. He was then charged with assault for the beating he gave the guy, but then the charges were dropped. Why? Because they discovered there was a motive behind the shooting. The reason? Incredibly stupid. The shooter owned a SRT-4. The driver owned a WRX. The shooter decided the WRX was a competitor to the SRT-4 (the cars in general) so he made a habit of shooting up WRXs in the area. There were some other cases of him shooting other WRXs too.

This is a video of a pretty horrific car crash. A Porsche crashes and runs off the side of the track. A little while later a Ferrari flies in and barrels into the Porsche and bursts into a huge ball of fire. The Porsche driver gets out fine, but the Ferrari is literally completely consumed in flames. The amazing thing though is... the Ferrari driver also survived. Not only that, his suit looks like it kept most of the fire out. Of course people like to point out the lack of attention paid to the obviously very hurt driver...

Here's a funny commercial from Nissan (probably European though) advertising the car's independant suspension and the effect of it on a woman's chest. YouTube video (flash based). Safe for work since it's a bikini clad girl, but might be iffy since it is bouncy boobs.

What can this be? Is this a Prius Kills (street racing wins) thread? Oh my! Yes it is! Wait, you say. Why would anyone have a kills thread for a 110 horsepower fuel saving car? Well, did you know that it was faster than a Ferrari Enzo? Faster than Mustangs? Just as fast as BMW M3s? Oh geez, this thread is seriously so awesome. I'll link to some of the great parts in the read more. It's kinda dumb. I mean Priuses are great for gas mileage and emissions. It's NOT a performance car whatsoever, yet some Prius owners are so insistant about how great it can perform.

This thread tells a crazy story of a guy whose FD RX-7 was hit purposefully and the guy took off. Basic story is he was told by friends that some truck smashed into his car (pushing his car into the car in front) reversed and smashed into his car again, then took off. Witnesses weren't able to get the license plate number but gave him a good description. What followed was some detective work to find the perpretrator. Since it's a forum thread, there's lots of useless posts there too so I'll just post links straight to the two parts of his story.
Post 1, Post 2. The story is still going on...
