Re: What are you listening to?

If the too fyfe is an evolution of the current I'd imagine smileage will be better (EPA test procedures notwithstanding). It's pretty good in Malcolm, the normal seasonal downward adjustment notwithstanding. Also my switch back to E10 causing a further degradation in smileage. Can't justify the $0.7...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Fork is the artist formerly known as InlinePaul. I'm sure there's a way to shut the Bondage off, but it's not readily apparent and the menus and buttons are just different enough from Malcolm where I don't want to dig too much.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

I'm driving a car, as a loaner, that would make Fork very cross. I have a 2018 CX-5 with radar adaptive snooze control, BondageSadoMasochism and auto hold (holds the brakes for the driver once the vehicle comes to a full stop, no feet necessary). I turned on the radar snooze just to see what it was ...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Welp, in our extended friend group lives another F-150. This one with a 5.0. An hour after signing the papers and we get a nice load of buttery skycum. It's adventure time.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Was the difference sport coupe versus boulevard cruiser? The profiles are similar.

I guess I got confused with the current vehicle bearing the Charger name having 4 doors that I blanked on the 2 door original.

Re: Does this half make sense?

Why do I want to say that workers on the assembly line would be worse at being techs? They're used to the product in its virgin state before all the crap is bolted on.

Re: Vehicles that you wouldn't think could have a standard shift

I drove a 4.0 Aerostar Eddie Bauer edition. Turquoise over tan and 4 captains chairs. Topped out and 90mph.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

GM fanbois gave Ford shit for axing all the cars and now GM is pulling the same crap. Once again the US is abdicating car production to the Japanese and Koreans.

This next market correction should be a Deusey.

Re: Vehicles that you wouldn't think could have a standard shift

Colour me surprised. I didn't realize the Asstrough came with a 4 cylinder engine at 1 point. Must have shared all the things with the S10 (and Bladder).

I am considering a GTI buy I am very used to a lot of space and I'm not sure I can easily give that up.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Generally speaking those are in fun. Friend legitimately thinks everything he owns is by default better.

EDIT: at least I mean them in fun, but sarcasm font isn't quite a thing.
