glad you're still planning to eventually move to CO. not my choice of course but, from what you've said in here, you seem to really like CO better than TX for your kind of lifestyle (not talking the drugs here :mrgreen: ).

Re: The beast has come...

I get sick of the engine/exhaust sound pretty quickly. I’d be rocking a portable radio with a handle within a month.

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Started a new job last week. Left the massive international company for a much smaller one of ~160 people. The culture change is massive, which is exactly what I was looking for along the standard new job must-haves and nice-to-haves and what not. The politics, the power-plays and the red tape real...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Eye'd keep the same (factory?) wheels and put tires with bigger sidewalls on them, then you can go offroading more easily. all kidding aside, if you run separate winter wheels and tyres, you could probably go slightly smaller sidewall on the stock wheels. lowriding on the cheap. don't go too much sm...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Stinks bro. That tire didn’t look to be in very good overall shape anyway. Tires ain’t cheap though... I drove on it for about 2 miles before I finally pulled over. It was midnight and the road was poorly lit. I thought maybe I could limp it along to an exit, but the car was getting a bit wobbly. W...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

Man I’m glad I don’t work at a dealership. Cars come in over night and weekends (holiday ones and regular) and placed haphazardly around the lot (i assume, cuz there’s 4 days of deliveries) and then you get in to a mess! Also who names the car colors? Symphony (Hyundai) is not grey, should be brown...

Re: BKs New Car

I don't recall an egregious amount of rev hang in my friend's Jetta, same powertrain I assume, but then my memory may be colored by the fact that I was driving a wholly noncompliant Kia at the time. The Jetta was far easier to drive than my Kia. Friend tried to make me believe it was a sporty rig. ...

How about a long in the tooth Datsun 370Z? Nobody would be able to tell that it was used. They've stayed visually unchanged for the better part of a decade.
other than the fast n furious body kit additions on later models...
