Cool, thanks! Al wheels, too. Not the color I'd want, and tough to test drive, but good to know they're out there and in a steady price range.

What sites do you trust for make/model reliability info?

CR (Consumer Reports)
Edmunds can be ok.

This is an area of opportunity. If I were king... all repair facilities and their systems should (be required to) put all service into a centralize/shared database, and have REAL aggregation for reporting. Wonder if this is a blockchain opportunity!? :)

Ok, do you have specific make/model questions? ASK.

I always visit the forums of the model of car that I am looking to get an idea of whats' going on. They can also help if you are making a model year decision.

It was probably scripted as hell, but the Top Gear segment where they have to use a Dodge to help land an ER-2 was really cool.

I got to see not the BMW, but his/their M-B last July! Sporkers heading to Europe should try to meet up with him.

I want Apple to create CoreVehicle / VehicleKit.

I can define my stable of cars/motorbikes/etc., and apps that I can benefit from KNOWING this information, I can allow them to get at all my stuff.

Think HEALTHKIT for Cars. Far less personal than HealthKit. But very similar, if one thinks about it. Tying it in to CarKit, and if you'd LIKE... the tracking of such things, to make car care, maintenance, reminders, and even maybe plug into services from trusted sources/users like IIHS, Consumer Reports, CarFax, etc. Lots of possibilities here. Especially will be helpful for people building, managing, using FLEETS of say autonomous vehicles, such Uber, Lyft, US Army. :)

:(
I have slowly been getting into/on media/press regarding automobile events.
Sadly, I had to turn down an invite for all expense paid trip (air/resort) for a major manufacturer new car launch event. And, international to boot!.
I just can't make all my demands allow me to go and feel ok about it, with a clear conscience.
But it's cool to be invited.

You should create a YouTube channel Jefe. Then you can retire and just post videos of you driving the speed limit :)

You will feel better if you tell us how to get such invites.

I talk to a LOT of people and such. Network. No clear easy way that does NOT turn it into a full time job.
