A very simple, quick, top down driving experience. I had one of these when in my 20s and loved it; annoyed the hell out of everyone by jauntily springing over the door to get in. It's damned hard to find a good one nowadays - I checked around before...
Quote: Originally Posted by TheD0n Everyone on HGTV needs the granite/SS kitchen. I agree with the aesthetics of the "updated" kitchen, but is the look any more timeless than a kitchen from the 1980s or 90s? If it's functional, that will help it last. The rest of the house and the building itself matter. You can't live in an old Victorian and have a kitchen that looks like the galley on a space ship. That's as annoying as a kitchen in a...

Quote: Originally Posted by gilwood I'm definitely the only one here who doesn't put women on a pedestal, except for GQGeek. I expect them to be rational people that I can deal with sensibly. You're expecting rational behavior from people that have demonstrated repeatedly that they aren't rational - which isn't rational of you. So what's your rationale? What these friends are saying is that they'll spend the first few hours of the night...
Quote: Originally Posted by J'aimelescravates Thanks Andre that's exactly how I learned to do it too. Ditto. I'd add that I was also taught to keep a hands' width between my head and the ceiling.

One of my pet peeves is guys sitting so far back and so low that the B-pillar impedes their visibility - see that a LOT here in Chicago.

Mostly, they often are able to kid themselves. I've seen guys cram themselves into cars with their knees up and heads crooked over, and say "What? No, it's a perfect fit!" Truth is, 90% of people on the road don't know the correct seating position for driving anyway. I see tons of...

I'm 6'1" with a 34" inseam and I think that's pushing it as far as height, but I've seen guys 6'4" or so say theyre comfortable What's weird is I tried the M Roadster and I swear it had more legroom, though BMW says they're the same.

I've got no plans to get one, but supposedly some friends of mine have a pool on when I'll show up driving one. Here's my current favorite, though - I liked it enough to buy one new: This is what I'd most likely replace the M Coupe with:
Quote: Originally Posted by otc Man...where is this? I've seen my share of ratty chicago apartment basements but never with a (landlord approved) keg. I moved in to my current place in January and have had a conversation with only one roommate (seemed like we would get along but he was subletting and might already be gone since I have not seen him again). This was 20 years ago; the building was managed by the owner's son, an aging hippy in...

For the sport, I'd recommend running, which trends more towards supportive than competitive.
