    1. Neat blog! Will be your theme personalized or would you download it from somewhere?

      A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would actually make my blog
      stand out. Please inform me where you got your design. Many thanks

    2. Hello,
      How does one sleek to Roman Mica?
      I have a new 2016 Jaguar XF S vehicle. I have some issues with the car and would like to speak with someone other than the dealer or jaguar who has driven the vehicle and is knowledgeable. I think a test driver is the best avenue here.
      I look forward to hearing back.
      Thank you for your time.

    3. Steve Zollinger adding to above comment.
      The 2016 XF S is a pretty darn nice vehicle with many good features!!!
      The problem I experience is a front end jolt and then rattle at slower speeds over square edge bumps, uneven and rippled pavement as well as road reflectors. I am told this is a given situation for this car. This is very annoying and doesn’t seem it should occur in a 70,000 vehicle.
      Has anyone experienced this before?

      Thank you,
      Steve ZOLLINGER

    4. Could you have the guy that did the two door wrangler versus unlimited wrangler review tell me what two door jeep he had. What special options did he get for it to make it look like that?

    5. Hello Gents,

      First and foremost, your YouTube channel rocks!

      Second, is there a way to get in touch with Roman Mica in regards to design drawings? I would like to get some feedback/critique before I submit to an automaker.


    6. Hello Andre ! I must say that the 4wd Challenger/Mustang Camaro test was a farce, a joke. Pardon, but your program adherents must be novices as it is a foregone conclusion that a 4wd vehicle will always beat a RWD vehicle, and besides tires being all season which were totally useless. Please watch and implement some of the Scandinavian winter vehicle tests on grip and tires and learn their useful techniques……

    7. i really had to complement Roman Mica for his 2010 raptor ten things you dont wanna do in a raptor vid it had it all i own that basically same truck for the last 8 years and i couldn’t agree more. Thanks Roman Mica for making my day 8 years ago.
