      Oh hai.

      You have to come to grips with the fact that some companies are so big that it's difficult to navigate their system. I either write those companies off or put them on the back burner. Or,...

      Small companies are always a risk in my experience. Sometimes that risk pays off, buy more often than not, there's some crazy crap they end up shoveling your way.

      NEVER wait until your severance...

      The trouble is that it sounds like you told them to build something custom and gave them the details of what you wanted. They built it the way you asked for it. The wheel looks different that you...

      Can't believe you didn't just do the O2 bung "while you were in there". Oh well, that will give us something to do if we can find time for you to come down next month I suppose.

      It's a tough choice for sure.

      A decent LS400/460 with low(ish) miles and proper maintenance is going to cost you. The Lexus really does have build quality that is noticeably above Toyota models....

      Everything was on track and then the transmission thing happened :(

      "good" paint is a subjective measurement. Not only is the quality suspect (since every painter paints with different paint and different skill and in different conditions), the details really comes...

      yup, these are unobtanium. Last time I saw one for sale, I mentioned it to TCL old timer Tnesh and he said "Yeah, I just bought that one".

      Count me in as in love with the styling. Beautiful cars. Howqever, since they're essentially an F430 Sedan, it was obvious to me that the maintenance might be off-putting.

      That's a testament to the engineering; lower weight, less need for a more robust 5-lug hub/wheel. Also, one less lug nut is less weight as well.

      I really hope the resale on these plummet due to battery fears so I can pick one up. I really love them.

      I saw this when I lived in Tahoe years ago. I was coming home from Reno and talked to him at a stoplight and then we pulled over and chatted more. Then I went to visit his shop a few weeks later. It...

      Congrats on the car and all, but it's basically a E30 Jeep at this point. Deferred maintenance, hack job "repairs" that you'll begin to find every week, strange electrical gremlins. This is not a...

      I totally agree that Volvos suck. It's not just that I'm a Saab guy, it's that I've worked on both cars. I hate working on Volvos because they've got some screwed up solutions for problems that don't...
