      Nice! Did you not drive to the shop to buy it? What are you driving that didn't allow you to put it in car?

      Most importantly, why are there no pics?

      In a way, it is. Higher operating temps mean better low-load fuel economy, lower operating temps mean more power. The thermostat varies the coolant temperature depending on load. The water pump...

      Meh, that thermostat/water pump is one of the things allows your 300 hp/twin turbo engine to get 30 mpg on the highway. My 325i had one of those and I put 148,000 miles on it with no problems.

      If you need to justify a financial decision with #yolo, you might want to rethink it.

      Generally, a commuter car implies that there's some other "fun car" in the fleet. So if that's the case, why not make your commuter car a sensible, durable, economical choice so you can dump more...

      The Ridgeline IS a good vehicle. When I was looking for a truck, I wanted a long bed though, and the short bed of the Ridgeline just wasn't going to cut it. In your first post, you say that you...

      Of the two, I pick WRX. People are going to think I'm nuts, but it rides and drives a lot like the E90, but with a Turbo.

      Are you the guy with the automatic E90 that was thinking about getting...

      See, I was starting to agree with you after this sentence:



      But then you said this:

      I'd do neither? The S2000 just doesn't do it for me after hearing about the poor steering feedback. After owning an E90, cars with bad steering feel are nixed from any shopping list. In the...

      I'm not sure I get it, whats the appeal of using the fat tires for "adventure" riding? Wouldn't they just feel heavy and slow when riding a long way?

      No, it had nothing to do with the drums. Adding the electro hydraulic brake booster fixed most of the issues.

      They sucked. Truly terrible braking. Try driving an '05 Tacoma.

      This is my exact problem. I'm just tall overall and I find myself leaning down to reach my keyboard.

      They updated the brake boosters on the Tacoma, adding an electro-hydraulic brake booster on the 2009+ TRD offroad versions, then they did it for the rest of the models after 2012. The 2005-2008...

      Meh, if it keeps the cost down, I'm okay with that. Pickups are so damn expensive these days, I think the Tacoma is one of the few trucks you can get a 4x4 for under 30k. The drums do bug me, but...

      Meh, I think the Ram is a pretty damn good looking truck, and the Canyon is a handsome design also. This Tacoma wouldn't look bad if the Chrome was blacked out. The chrome just makes the grill...
