the ugliest car in the world….

JUST GOT UGLIER!

my purpose for this post is a sinister one.

A) i want this photo to become the #1 google image result for the Toyota Prius

B) i want ‘prospective’ Toyota Prius buyers to come here, and understand that they look like idiots driving around in their ugly box of batteries and electronic wankery

C) i want these US buyers to consider buying a clean diesel VW Golf TDI or Jetta TDI—which get similar MPG performance—-and save  the world the horror of seeing this ugly Prius monstrosity on our streets.  Think of the children, people!!!

BMW E30 M3 Evo…..with 59 km? and another with 92 km!? NEW!

An amazing story, of a guy who found an E30 M3 Evo sitting brand new……….not even just a regular E30 M3, but an EVO! amazing.

as he puts it:

“The car has not been started or driven for 20years, so will need recommissioning, its booked into a BMW main dealer next week for all fluids,filters and belts a to be changed before its started for the first time in 20 years. Its never been cleaned and has never seen rain and very little day light!!! its just been sat there and forgotten about!!! hence the original 20 year old dust, i quite like it like that it just show’s provenance that the car really was forgotten about!!!  When its been cleaned and serviced i’ll post more pics”

WAIT A MINUTE!!! There’s more.

he found ANOTHER identical  M3 Evo sitting right next to it with 92 KM and bought the 2nd one as well!! Unbelievable.

at which point, he posted:

“Well ive got some more news for you all!!!!! Sorry just showing off now.  Have another look at the photo’s you will see that the cars are sat on different surfaces!!!!!!!!!!!!! There’s not one there were two identical cars both parked next to each other for 20yrs. Ones done 59 kilometers the other has done 92 kilometers”

so he bought both……..AND the RS200 Cosworth!

Audiworld is dead. Long Live Quattroworld!

quattroworld

FILE UNDER: petrolhead culture & community

In one of the most dramatic shifts of web community power i’ve ever seen, the core membership of Audiworld packed their bags and busted out into another brand new forum under the name Quattroworld.

Audiworld was originally started by Audi enthusiasts back in 1999 (thanks for the correction, Matt), and it turned very successful over the years—so successful that it was eventually purchased by parasitic Internet Brands, a company known for taking over forums (especially car forums).  Since the takeover, IB had been desperately trying to change the format from an older open source code of KAWF to a newer, more common Vbulletin forum system.

Result? Vbulletin was completely rejected by the users of the forum.

The transition was a mess, a sloppy forum, ruined historical AW posts, and a core member base set irate by the destruction of the long standing, successful, and active Audi community.  Quattroworld started itself like a makeshift emergency center, immediately launching KAWF forums which heralded a return to original AW form—and the core members piled into QW.  The result? Audiworld appears all but abandoned, a mess of new members which may even be ‘hired’ by IB (people do hire forum posters online, to help promote new forums), and a core base which has left.  Within 48 hours, the number of users who joined Quattroworld was close to 3000.  Those 3000 undoubtedly contributed at least 80% of the posting done on Audiworld, if not more.

Verdict: the community prevailed in the end, held together like glue by an outdated, but extremely usable format which works, and allows all of Quattroworld’s users to maintain the forum architecture they grew accustomed to for so many years.

Audiworld is dead.  Long live Quattroworld!
