Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider had always been a Ford guy — until he got a Viper. He hasn’t looked back.

In fact, he got so immersed in Dodge that he customized his 2010 Dodge Challenger R/T to what he called his Dodge Challenger T/A, which Dodge doesn’t make. He now drives a Plum Crazy 2014 Dodge Challenger that he customized with his local dealership, Port Jeff Chrysler Jeep Dodge,

Stream Injury Reserve’s New Project ‘Drive It Like It’s Stolen’

Arizona’s own Injury Reserve is currently one of hip-hop’s fastest-rising alternative rap groups in the game, and today they continue their ascent with their new project, Drive It Like It’s Stolen.

At seven tracks, the trio’s latest project is a dense serving of what fans have come to love about them. Comprised of Stepa J. Groggs, Ritchie With a T and producer Parker Corey, the group creates music reminiscent of early 2000s rap, with their single, “See You Sweat” evoking images of the Neptunes.

The trio is currently set to head on the Renaissance tour with Warm Brew

Test Drive: 2018 Toyota Camry | J.D. Power Cars

Introduction
Toyota redesigns the popular Camry for 2018, aiming to give the car more style and improved driving dynamics while expanding availability of safety technology and introducing next-generation infotainment systems.

Built on Toyota’s new global vehicle architecture, the 2018 Camry is a bit smaller inside than it used to be, and it sits lower to the ground. The result is a car that is more fun to drive and wrapped in sleeker sheet metal.

BMW M5 review – the ultimate super saloon

No other super saloon offers the BMW M5’s combination of mind-bending straight-line performance, dynamic ability and everyday usability. Some will mourn the loss of the previous M5’s manic V10, but the new 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 returns even more performance and uses less fuel. The F10 generation’s dual-clutch gearbox is a vast improvement over the old car’s SMG ‘box, too. 

This M5 is an altogether more refined machine than the E60 version, but it still boasts class-leading dynamics and a degree of agility that sits completely at odds with the near two-tonne kerb weight. Whereas the current generation M3 and M4 models are less than convincing in their dynamic make-up, the M5 is perfectly judged. 

The restrained, but handsome exterior styling and superbly appointed cabin simply complete the package. This M5 is a high water mark both for BMW and for the super saloon as a whole. 

Performance and 0-60 time

The Leica T Revisited: You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby

It’s been two years since the Leica T was revealed. Touting an undeniably sexy unibody design and a brand new lens mount, the T showed that Leica was serious about staying relevant in a technology-focused climate. While the camera was universally praised in most regards, particularly for the body and interface design, there were certainly some unpleasantries in the way of performance. But that was two years ago, and a lot’s changed. Leica has stayed committed to their aluminum wonder, and it has slowly evolved into a serious little machine worth a second glance.

For nearly 100 years, Leica was a company with a pretty singular, conservative vision. While Leica revolutionized photography by, essentially, inventing the 35mm camera, the word “revolutionary” became relegated to a footnote in their history. After inventing auto focus technology in the 1970s, they sold off the patents to Minolta because the idea of auto focus didn’t really fit their principles. Even the Leica M of today

Photo Comparison: BMW 6 Series GT vs. 5 Series GT

When we first heard about the BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo, we were expectedly hesitant about the results. Neither the 3 Series GT or 5 Series GT were particularly pretty cars and the 6 Series Coupe was. So when we learned that BMW would be killing off the seductive coupe and giving its nameplate to a Gran Turismo, we weren’t entirely enthused. However, we did hold out hope that it would look sportier than any other BMW GT that came before it. After all, BMW said it would. Though, looking at both cars side-by-side, they share a very strong familial bond.

Okay, so from the front, the two cars are night and day. The new 6er GT wears a similar face to the new G30-gen BMW 5 Series, which is a good thing. That’s a handsome car so it’s a good one to copy. So this

Ride Assist-e Self-Balancing Motorcycle From Honda Aimed At New Riders

Ohio TV station WCMH warns consumers about failing to do scans …

A Columbus, Ohio, television network has warned consumers about a possible threat to their warranty should they forgo a diagnostic scan of their vehicle.

The piece by “Better Call Jackson” reporter Mike Jackson advises consumers that “if your car’s only a few years old, regardless of its make or model,” it needs a scan after even a “minor mishap” because of the electronic systems inside. (Technically, electronics issues not represented by a dash light date back to at least the 1990s, but as the focus is on factory warranties, we’ll let this one slide.)

“Almost all of us have that in our cars now,” anchor Colleen Marshall notes of vehicle electronics in the WCMH video.

The WCMH segment features Rife’s Autobody manager Mike Troxel, who describes how some insurers will pay for a scan with documentation — while others will acknowledge that the OEM says it’s necessary but “‘we don’t

Audi A5 review: handsome looks, but can it beat BMW and Mercedes?

Just be aware that a lot of the exciting technology on the A5, such as the Virtual Cockpit display, must be specified as an optional extra, often in conjunction with an expensive bundle of equipment.

Our favourite version

2.0 TFSI Sport S-tronic, list price £33,445

Options you should add: Metallic paint (£645) , Hill hold assist (£75), Technology pack (£1,110 for a larger central screen, 36-month internet subscription and phone signal booster/wireless charging), Virtual cockpit (£250)

Verdict 7/10

The Audi A5 is a very desirable car, but given its sleek styling and powerful engines we can’t help but wish it was slightly more fun to drive. And while the interior is classy, you have to spend a lot on optional extras to get the best from it.
