I like small wheels, it's just that those ones aren't fitting to a vintage car, they look like the ones kids put on their MkII Golf.

That's what I had in mind:

GF,

order some connolly hide cleaner and the conditioner as well. It will remove some denim transfer, while cleaning the leather. Then, seriously, rub the conditioner in by hand and let it sit over night. Leather will be soft as butta. He rubs it with a diaper Ferris

Made me think of: http://jalopnik.com/5919954/how-i-saved-a-coked-up-miles-davis-after-he-crashed-his-lamborghini
"Jazz great Miles Davis loved his little Italian cars, but his reckless side took over one day and he crashed the car while carrying a few bags of white powder. Director and car collector James Glickenhaus just happened to be driving along the same stretch of road and jumped out to help."

I actually just bought some zaino leather cleaner for my steering wheel and I'm considering buying leatherique for the car but that's a really long, involved process. The leather in my car is in great condition but I'm sure some TLC will go a long way towards preventing wear and maintaining its current condition.

We shall see!

Basically... I was an idiot.

Flew in late last night and frequented in n out for dinner. Parked my car and put the cup of coke on top of my car as I unloaded my delicious goods and suitcase.

Discovered a lingering smell of in n out in my car so I started closing and opening the doors to circulate the air in the car.

You can guess what happened next frown.gif

I understand the dilemma you faced with trying to gather everything, but I don't understand placing the coke on the car. Actually, I may have done the same thing once, and had a similar result. eek.gif

I got a chuckle out of an email correspondence with the salesguy I'm working with at Infiniti. He shot me a payment on a properly spec'ed car. I asked what the residual and money factor was and what the MSRP and cap cost was. He asked me why I wanted all those numbers so I told him so I could work the lease and see how the actual numbers fall out. He told me leasing formulas are pretty complicated, and if I came by the dealership, he could print up the lease contract which would show all that. I told him Infiniti must have a different contract from everyone else as I've never seen a lease contract that goes through the formula. It just kicks out a few total costs, like the total cost to finance, and does not go through the formula. I said to just shoot me the numbers. He said he could not explain the leasing formula in email as it's very complicated. I told him I was not asking him to explain it just provide the numbers and that I found nothing complicated about:

(cap cost - residual) / 36

and

(cap cost + residual) x money factor

He had the balls to say this formula was incorrect but would not correct it. I told him to print my email and go talk with the leasing manager. That was Wednesday. Yesterday he emailed me to say it had been "a long time" since he'd done a lease by hand and that I was indeed correct.

If the choice is the FX he's in a world of hurt when I start to really negotiate.
