      - DA polisher setup
      - RossTech cable

      Budget is < $400 I think. I prefer to keep the drive train stock until it's out of warranty, so those mods are out (plus...

      Do you have a smaller unit for stuff like the A-pillar, or the front bumper? Or do you just do those by hand? Or does the big pad do OK there? The Rupes sure looks like a fantastic machine, just...

      Yeah, that's my problem. From looking at comparisons, it seems Rupes > Flex > PorterCable. But if I'm going to have only one, the ability to have different size pads is a bonus, and the PorterCable...

      Was thinking of the Flex kit: http://www.detailersdomain.com/Flex-XC-3401-VR-Base-Bundle_p_268.html

      Is the Rupes that much better that I should pony up the extra?

      Argh, I think I want a DA polisher. I have a crappy 10" buffer from Sears, but there seems to be so many choices, and I suck at making decisions. Rupes? Flex? PorterCable? I'm a total noob at...

      Man, seeing all these nicely put together cars makes me really want LED tails... But I think I'd enjoy a set of 17's more. Plus, no real mods until it's paid off. If/when I do get new wheels, they...

      I believe if you hit the brakes, it will re-engage and try to save your bacon. That's all I've heard of.

      The R would be fine with just one kid - flip the other side of the 60/40 seat down to help fit a stroller and leave room for groceries. Might even work fine with two kids, sending the stroller...

      I think if your DP is too loud, adding a CBE to compensate is probably not going to do it. Maybe change to a diff DP instead? Then again, I know next to nothing about this, it just seems weird to...
