daily podcast okay what have we got

Stephan Wilkinson couldn't make his date with the Ford Flex press launch. So the former Car and Driver editor and occasional TTAC contributor graciously ceded his spot to Justin, who graciously ceded his podcast responsibilities to Michael Karesh. Our ace reviewer and truedelta.com partner in crime prevention acquitted himself admirably. And why not? Michael is our kinda guy. He shares our commitment to truth, justice and Steve McGarrret. Actually, knowing Michael (or at least Michael's age), I'm sure the consumer champion has no idea what I'm talking about, or the fact that Jack Lord spent the last two seasons believing he was the head of the Five-0 (itself a fictional agency). Fortunately, TTAC is not delusional. We know we're not perfect or infallible or particularly good at Parcheesi (for that matter). Once again, we thank our loyal readers for pointing-out our mistakes. We will always operate from the principle that we could be wrong, and provide space for those who wish to take a contrary position to our resident contrarians. We eagerly await the day when the playas themselves take those first few hesitant steps into the light. Meanwhile, Karesh.

    Uh, Robert, George Reeves died from a gunshot wound to the head believed to be self-inflicted.

    Coincidentally, I'm trying to choose between an E36 M3 sedan ('97-98) and an Audi B6 S4 ('03-05). Is the reliability really that bad with these two cars? Of course, the BMW will be expensive even for preventative maintenance. I've been reading up, and other than the water pump and a few suspension components, the E36 M3 doesn't seem like it has fatal problems. As for the S4's, I was under the impression that the 2.7T's were maintenance nightmares, but the V8's were much better, almost a non-issue in terms of reliability. Is that incorrect?

    I haven't been interested in BMW since they boarded the Bangle Bus. I saw a beautiful, well preserved early 90's 5 series the other day...it made me long for the days when I still longed for a propeller badged sedan. Now? Meh.
