    no success!

    I took out every single fuse and cleaned the contacts, but nothing changed. I tested the earth wire for resistance with the battery earth terminal, 70 ohm, fluctuating a lot between 30 and 120. ...

    I have the narrow 14 inch steelies on my 505 STI. Apparently the compliance plate on my car suggests an SR 14 is what it needs. They don't make them any more so the guy at Beaurepairs looked in his...

    A 407 with AWD and 200+ KW would be good, similar to what the volvo S80s do. 407s look so imposing on the road but don't have the engine power to really go fast.
