Everyone here already knows I'm a smart-a**. I love cars, I have a bachelors in electrical engineering and I'm paying for that education as a certified technician. I work on all Eurotrash, but Mercedes is my specialty.

Audi confirms plans to discontinue the multitronic CVT
CVTs have their place. Mostly, in "transportation appliances" where A-B as efficiently as possible is the goal, not German Bahn-storming.

2015 Audi Q7 to feature an electric turbocharged engine - report

Pagani Zonda X under development

IBM backed the Nazis, and it was only through the use of their computing superiority that the regime was able to pull off the logistics nightmare that the "Holocaust" ...

BMW rules out nine- or ten-speed automatic gearboxes, manual to live on
A turbo 3 with DI, continuous cam-phasing on inlet and exhaust, continuous valve-lift control, cooled EGR, a dual-scroll turbo and an air-to-water intercooler makes the same power numbers as the last crop of turbo 4s...which generated the same 200hp that was common in V6s a few years ago, and still ...
