    Yeah but driving a stick and holding a phone to record videos at the same time is kinda hard. :D

    Auto or not, if I dropped a substantial amount of coin on a vehicle like that and wasn't perfect I'd come un-done.

    It was bad enough when everything behind the turbo of the exhaust system fell off of my $38k Dodge cummins. :D

    Typical Dodge quality...

    That's why you get a go pro with it's own stand, the video will look much smoother than just holding it.
    Automatic gets boring easily, nothing in driving is more satisfying than making that perfect downshift at a sharp corner, other than road head of course.

    Sorry, that was a jab at the EPA regulations put on the truck. I removed the exhaust to get more power and better mileage. Its not the typical ricer exhaust mod, with the 2007.5+ trucks they added tons of emissions equipment to them that absolutely destroy their mileage. Once you remove it your truck runs better(and no longer puts your sooty exhaust into your turbo on the intake side).

    All I have to say is;

    "German Engineering" ha. I think that video only further confirms that European cars in general are built to cost more on the long run, especially since you can't do half the work yourself. Every VW, Audi, BMW, Mercedes I've seen friends own, they always say they are money pits. Never had that issue with any Japanese car.

    From the people I know with them, it's very hit or miss. Some people have zero problems, then they're smart enough to get rid of the car after a few years before their luck runs out. A family friend, however, got out of the Navy last year. Day one: bought a brand new Mercedes. Day two: took it in for repairs. And it seems like he has been taking that thing in repairs several times a month since he bought it. I would be lost my cool months ago and told them where to stick it!
