About half the ******* words in this thread are underlined as adds. We are being taken over. If Rick put this many adds on the site when he owned it he would have been sitting at home polishing his Ferrari

twas a mistake as the guys were trying to fix ads on mobile to not display for supporters and they crossed the wires with the default view. They are fixing this as I type.

Aaw! Now Curly & I can't continue our infinite regression loop.


Sidebar: I had no idea what a Cadillac ATS was. Apparently it's a "compact luxury sport sedan," which is a term that seems to cover a lot of ground these days. On the plus side, it's apparently available with RWD, LSD, and a genuine manual gearbox. So that's kind of cool.

Puzzlingly, it ranges in price from $33,095 to $55,005.

That's one thing I always liked about Honda, or Acura to be more precise. I don't know if it's still this way, but 10 years ago, they didn't have options. If you were interested in buying an Integra LS, you got to choose the color and whether or not you wanted an automatic transmission. That was it. If a certain feature existed, it was standard equipment. If it didn't exist, then it wasn't.

Power windows? Standard.

Power locks? Standard.

ABS? Standard.

Ugly cloth seats with some sort of vaguely floral pattern printed on them? Standard.

Sat Nav? Go **** yourself.


I'm sure that any system in which it's possible to increase the MSRP of a vehicle by 66% simply by way of a dizzying array of options has got to be a lucrative business model, especially since the base model is usually pure fiction as far as dealer inventory is concerned. I can't help but be annoyed by the fact that someone would actually pay $55,000 for a four-door GM sedan, though. (Did you know that you can buy an E-class Merc, a 5 series Bimmer or a Cayenne for less than that?)

Yeah when I saw ads pop up on mobile today I was thinking, is this my reward for supporting the site? Never had pop ups until today.

Now I get why people complain.

The ATS I had was like $45k at its base level and is still more coin than I could imagine dishing at it. Still a blast to drive... will hoon when $10k used.

Shouldn't be any now for logged in on mobile if you are talking about the curled page and the kontera ads. Only ads on mobile for logged in should be the top and bottom little banners.

Thanks Nolan. Phones and tablets don't have screen space to give away.

As for ads on regular browsers, I haven't see any that I can blame miataturbo.net for, but last week a program called Playtopus got installed (I don't want to talk about how.) Until I uninstalled it I was getting the underlined words mouse-over things and pop ups, impotence, flatulence, etc. As I said, I can't blame that on mt.net.
