      I used borrowlenses.com to rent a lens for my trip to Arizona last month. When weather delayed the arrival of the lens past the time I was due to depart, they overnighted me another one, no questions...

      A year ago December, I bought myself a Sony SLT-A58. I liked the features and was drawn by the focus speed related in part to the semi-transparent...

      May upgrade to a newer Macbook Air, but not really interested in what this new Macbook has to offer for all the reasons mentioned above.

      When I was in college, I would take my Subaru to a quick-change oil place. I would tell them, up front, not to unscrew the first drain plug they saw as that was for the transmission; you had to reach...

      Big blocky car needs big blocky wheels. IMHO, wheels with a high metal-to-void ratio looks better on the W124s.

      Non-sequitur: Did you do the +1 camber control arm retrofit? I did that on my sister's '02 ZTW and it took care of the tire eating issue.

      Choose your money pit:

      1989 Merkur Scorop
      1986 (87?) Shelby Lancer (as opposed to Lancer Shelby -- there is a difference)
      1987 Audi 4000 CS quattro

      After three Jettas, my roommate is on her 2nd Outback, a 2013. I'm looking forward to December when the lease is up on that, so she can get into a new one. I really liked the way the 2010 rode. They...

      Two observations:


      I can but hope the greenhouse is taller.
      I'm happy to see air vents above infotainment. One of the reasons I cross many cars off my list is because I can't get a breeze on...

      I'm on my second Prius (albeit a Gen III). The first one (2010) went 106,000 truly FLAWLESS miles and saw track time at Road America the last three years.

      While a rear sway bar helped cornering,...

      It's a shame there aren't more wagon options these days.

      I thought the AWD 600STEs were just sedans and had the 3.1 liter with the 3 speed automatic vs the 2.8 with the 4 speed.

      Also quite...

      This is more important to me than a heated steering wheel or ACC.

      One of the things I truly miss from the Phaeton. And, note: some are cooled, some just circulate air. The ones on the Phaeton and...

      I don't mind the taller profile as I'm sick to tears of not being able to fit in cars due to the "racy, swept back profile" endemic in today's designs.

      Having said that, I haven't seen a distinct...

      Always.

      Heard it all the time in the Phaeton forum where people would whine about $150 oil changes on a car they picked up for $22k. You might have paid $22k for it, but you're still having to...

      I just has this conversation with my sister yesterday.

      The transfer "case" on her Sienna is leaking fluid. Apparently, this is a most of the day job along with about $25 of RTV.

      She asked me...
