1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    2007 Is250 with F-Sport Package. I wanted the 350, but at he time I was afraid it was too much power for my wife who has never driven rear wheel drive and has never had over 150 horse in a car. It is not the fastest, but the F-sport parts do help it handle better, which is far more important than top speed. If I wanted speed I would build another 300Zx twin turbo up to 400 or 500 horse.

    That's kind of gross. What's the material they used for all the yellow stuff? Looks very plasticy.

    The factory installed trim pieces on my 911 were painted and clearcoated. Actually pretty nice (taste aside) but you better be careful not to chip it.

    I hear that. I wonder how carbon fiber interior pieces are going to stand up over time. I wonder whether they will yellow and need to be clearcoated again.

    Well, it's my fault for not spending more time with the boss when figuring out what company car to get. I told him "get something classy", and he surprises me with a yellow '09 porsche 911 with matching carbon fiber interior and racing seats. Doesn't really match the look I got going (I get weird looks stepping out of it wearing a 3 piece tweed suit), but hey, the clients love it.

    Maybe I should lose 50 pounds, cover myself head to toe in julius leather and grow my bangs out to match the car [​IMG]

    I'm really curious what you would have ended up with if you had said "get something tacky." [​IMG]

    I dunno, but during his deliberations I swear I saw him staring at an open Batman comic then making a few calls and looking dissappointed after.
