    Quick rant thread.

    Yeah in auto mode it can be a lil weird, the "real" first gear/clutch kinda bogs the engine when your creeping in traffic, still WAY better than any other CVT Ive driven.

    Quick rant thread.

    Thrashed a rental 2019 corolla over the crown ranges today. Stuck it in sport mode, slapped the transmission into manual and was prepared to be thoroughly underwhelmed. Smashed the go pedal and started tapping through the gears, and it was wickedly responsive, nearly like a DCT! bang bang bang.. and there were 9 of em! Only a little bit of slip, and it changed cogs in milliseconds. Very impressed by what I thought would be a horrid slushbox. Got home and googled what kind of insane box this was and how they fitted so many cogs in it ... Its a friggin CVT! My world has been shattered.

    Grand Tour Season 2

    Sounds like the Topgear/Grand Tour format is ending and it might be odd specials now?

    BMW Parts Liquidation - Ladies Mile

    Some interesting bits there, lots of panels and lights for E30-E90ish gens. craploads of chinese E39/90 window regulators. Odd wheels, couple of M5x engines in various states, and random junk in piles. What looked like an entire new E87 118i rear subframe with diff and shocks etc, all new, but very corroded outside.
