    C107's 300TE

    Its a brand new starter/solenoid, but I think you are right. It looks pretty much part of the starter.

    C107's 300TE

    Had an interesting thing happen to the 300TE recently. its happened twice now. After starting the car, the starter will disengage from the ring gear but continue to spin. It spins loudly and even removing the key doesn't do anything. Even disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes and...

    Cheap new EVs

    Yes, she is drawn to an EV largely for the environmental benefits. Otherwise she would have just replaced the lexus with something a bit newer and in better shape for about $10k. She doesn't really see the benefits of a new car generally, but when a privately imported car that is 7 years...

    Cheap new EVs

    Yes, it probably would. But part of her buying decision was not totally financial, in that she is keen to own an EV for the perceived environmental benefits. It was just that she wasn't going to pay $60k for a small hatch, EV or not. So if the financial penalty above a petrol car was...

    Not to be Trusted

    Presume Sean is not legally responsible even if his car caused the accident in reality. The normal expectation is that you should leave a gap so you can stop without impacting another car if the car in front of you panic stops (eg cat runs on road).
