Bought both, together with the beige and wooded. I own a navy and light grey since before. I believe I'm all set for cardigans now. Thanks.

You will be pleased. I have the green and the wine + the brown (wooded???) and the light grey.

Thanks. I believe I will. And btw, for some reason the discount code you wrote before didn't work. Was mostly interested in using it to forward some credits to you. Found another one with 5 % discount + free shipping.

They always have "limited time only" discounts. It's a cheap trick to make you buy something now instead of later. Lots of websites use it nowadays. Anyway, I'm happy with the product, but they might as well lower their prices permanently.

I cant imagine not having a car. I love driving so much. I mean, I hate traffic, but as long as its reasonable, city or highway, I freaking love it. Such a great release.

Any tips on rust/burnt orange vests or cardigans?

Exactly. When I drove to Toronto it took about 8 hours and 90% of the drive was through rural New York. I also left at like 4 AM so it was only the truck drivers and I on the road so I could open it up and make good time there.

Driving in Boston totally blows. I'd only recommend it to someone if I hate that person. But I am also about 15 minutes from 93 North which can take you toward New Hampshire and Vermont, etc.

The "south shore" (basically a giant area south of Boston) just sucks, though. The commuter population of Boston is about 8 million now while the real population is barely over 1 million. One guess where a vast majority of that 7 million comes from. If I had to drive up into Boston from that area on a daily basis I'd seriously consider tracking down some cyanide pills.

That's the problem we face here in Toronto. 3 times as many people come to work, and then leave. None of them pay into the municipal tax system which means the infrastructure is crumbling and transit is awful. One would be tempted not to take transit if it weren't for the fact that a 15 mile stretch of highway out of the city didn't take 2 hours to travel by car.

 

We need to get some American style toles in place to cut down on the amount of car traffic. It's pretty ridiculous that this is all caused by people who refuse to carpool/use regional trains and instead prefer to sit alone in traffic for the better part of their day. Not a panacea but at least it would discourage things.

 

Living in the city, I've found that with a zipcar + long trip rental I'm easily well below the monthly cost of owning a car (especially a new one). That being said I'm still tempted by some of the new offerings out there, styling and engines are really incredible these days.

Nothing like weaving in and out of city traffic like a mini Michael Schumacher.

More fun on a bike in the city. You get places way faster on pedal power if they're shorter distances. Kinda comical sometimes.

I hate idiots who drive slow in the farthest left lane. 

GET OUT OF MY WAY!

Driving in Boston:  don’t.   I like the city, but the drivers are some of the worst in the U.S.

 

Driving through Central Park in Manhattan after 2:00 a.m. when streets are almost empty the night after a snowstorm has left a blanket of white but the sky has cleared to reveal a full moon:  one of life’s finer pleasures.

 

Having cleared that up, may I squeeze in a question?

 

Anyone care to share an opinion on the optimum distance between the pin stripes on a navy/dark blue pinstripe suit?

 

Thanks.

 

Cheers,

Not sure if you have an automatic or not, but the long clutch on the Maxima is a good substitute for leg day in traffic :s

post #14459 of 37396

The current gen of Maximas do not come in manual. They do come with pedal shifters. 

 

Boston is an awesome walking city. I would not drive in the city. And I noticed that Bostonians honk a lot.

I had a '00 Maxima through undergrad. I loved that car.
