So I've been having fun with the Audi A4 I bought a few weeks back. I had APR Stage 1 flashed on it this week and noticed an immediate difference. Does anyone else here use it or any other tunes (GIAC, Revo, etc.)? I've now found myself researching Stage 2 and other HFCs, suspension upgrades, etc., in my spare time instead of Vass, C&J, etc.
I'd go with a little from column A, and a little from column B. There's no reason why they can't be both too big and poor quality leather, and in fact that's what I would guess.
Yeah, I actually placed an order from them a year or so ago, for some Ormonde Jayne stuff. Great store and great price with the conversion, but it took 5 weeks and I honestly thought it was lost for a while. Great store, but if you need something to arrive by Xmas (I was ordering for my wife), I wouldn't count on it from Essenza Nobile.
PSA: Since Frederic Malle stuff is pretty tough to find on sale from US retailers, I just wanted to pass along that Nieman Marcus has $50 off $200 with code THANKFUL and it works on FM. http://www.neimanmarcus.com/Frederic-Malle/Designers/cat55820743_cat000730_cat000000/c.cat
@UnFacconable, we bought a 2017 Outback when they first were released at the end of July. We thought we had a deal on a 2016, but the dealer couldn't come through on the color (ice silver) so he gave us a great deal on a 2017 if we were willing to wait. They were offering 0.9% financing at the time too. We got the 2.5i Limited with all the EyeSight and all the safety stuff. I agree with @jbarwick the beeping lane change warning is annoying, but my daughter will be driving...
It's just a shortwing oxford without a medallion, plenty of brands make them. His pair looks beat to hell, so either he knows absolutely nothing about shoe care or that "I don't give a fuck" look is what he's going for. In any case you really shouldn't wear shoes with closed lacing with jeans, it just looks strange as the formality levels are so incongruent. If you want to wear a shortwing with jeans, get a derby which will be more casual and appropriate. Here's a nice...
New acquisition over the weekend, a 2012 Audi A4 2.0T Quattro with 51K miles:
They just slashed the price of all the USB-C dongles. "Pro" users must have been getting pissy about all the adapters needed to connect anything now.http://www.macrumors.com/2016/11/04/apple-drops-prices-on-usb-c-adapters/
If you just want a simple one, the TC Helicon "Ditto" pedal is small, cheap, and sounds good. For more passes and more complicated stuff, something like the Boss RC-30 Loop Station is pretty cool. Vocalist JD Walter uses the Boss Loop Station do do some solo stuff where he keeps making additional passes and adding to the loop. Check out this video starting at 5:40 or so:https://youtu.be/EkzYS3AjzYY?t=5m40sThe loop comes back for a third pass around 6:50, then he adds the...
PSA: Saks has an EG briefcase in either black or cognac on sale right now, was $1,595 now $957. I don't know much about their bags (also "made in Italy"???) but that seems like maybe a pretty solid deal for someone. http://www.saksfifthavenue.com/main/ProductDetail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524446904129&R=419797349863&P_name=Edward+Green&Ntt=edward+green&N=0&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374306424607&bmUID=lwqWFuB
