    @Academic2 I prefer chalkstripes and I personally won't consider any stripes with less than 0.5 inches spacing.

    Haha no, not even close. 2000 was only 222. But a zippy 222. They bumped it up to 255? the next model year.

    Given Stitchy beats my suit game and my SC/odds I would guess he beats my Beemer too.

    Nissan makes some solid engines. IIRC the V6 in the 2002 onwards Maxima/G35 won several "best of" awards.

    Yup. They're designs are...compared to Honda and Toyota...trendier. I don't know what happened with Honda and Toyota but they really started going conservative in their designs.

    I would not go that far. Dont sell yourself short, champ.


    I wish. I might could beat you in a drag race on the highway/city streets, with cars around. Thats really more about who is a bigger nut job than the performance of the cars, but in a straightway, youd crush me. Though the V6 Accord is real nice, and has solid pickup, I know when she is outmatched.

    Also, those commercials for the new electronic BMW. Hoooooooooooooooooly

    Car thoughts:

    - they don't need to be expensive to be cool. i'm a BMW guy and the most expensive one I've purchased has been by far my least favorite. One of my top three favorites cost less than US$2k (if anyone else is into Bimmers, it was an e30). The other two favorites were both under US$15k
    - "fast" is over-rated. It's always more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow
    - a Maxima may have 300hp but it got no soul
    - like Mimo I currently don't own a car (at least not where I live), although my rental is not as crappy as his (it's a 2014 Accord automatic). All of this talking about cars really makes me want to buy one, so to fight this urge I think I will take what I would otherwise spend on my first month's payment and order another pair of Vass while expensing my boring rental

    If I could afford a car right now, I'd have one of those scion/subaru collabs.
