      And those aren't selling here?! I thought the compacts were flying off lots. XV/HRV/CX5 ect.

      There's plenty of lithium out there (and "rare"-earth metals too). It's a matter of ramping up extraction, which is happening now that cars are shifting to the technology.

      I don't mind the tech...but there's so much redundancy when people have smartphones. I've got basically no use for anything more than an Aux Audio port. Even then I prefer to use CDs in the car....

      My '07 has been pretty fine since I picked it up in '10.
      The two issues I've had are that it burns a bit of oil and it's had an intermittent cold starting issue. Usually gets going the second push...

      Chase sent me a new card quite a while ago, well before the expiration date, with a chip (maybe over a year?). My Citi card and bank cards were both expired and were replaced too in the last yearish,...

      I don't think I'd want an original Mini as a replacement for mine. I mean, I would absolutely love an original Cooper S, but not as the daily I've got now.
      Or would I get the 2001 model? I guess...

      You put it in some kind of ceramic, or even metal, with a higher melting temp. There are many "Refractory' materials.

      Worrying about the color of the balls is pretty odd: The reservoir will already absorb most of the light that hits it. The balls change where it's absorbed - It'll be mostly localized to the top...

      Agreement over what constitutes underage hasn't exactly been constant, though.

      Some places would have 14 be a-ok. That seems sketchy to me!

      Critically, you don't want these to be biodegradable. They're meant to stay around and be chemically inert.

      To make them shiny/mirrored you'd probably metalize them, like a mylar party balloon....

      100F is not enough to melt any of the common plastics on a car. Even ****ty replacements will hold up to that temp, even if the Sun's UV will do them in pretty quickly.
