      I know huh? I'm here to talk about cars and if someone disagrees, cool, let's talk discuss it

      Not sure why some people seem to make it their goal here to discredit me or just make useless posts towards me..especially when it seems like they are actually agreeing with what I said to begin with.

      Anyways...Sad news about no new Top Gear until 2013 huh? The last season was not so good but still better than any other show when it comes to auto related entertainment. Guess we'll have to live with 5th gear and the other versions of Top Gear until then. At least I can go watch the US tapings when they do it since it's nearby.

      I'm looking forward to detailing my car with products from Adam's and Griot's as well as a few products from "faceless corporations"

      I'm sure you've read battery threads here already, but...

      Our batteries seem to "test good" right up until the day they leave you stranded. My dealer tested my original battery at 78K and said it looked fine.

      I was still having electrical gremlins and labored cranking, so I bought an AGM at Sears and put it in myself per a DIY that went by in the last 5-6 months.

      Our cars are pretty close then. I just replaced the battery before Wookies and will be hitting 50k next week.

      Yeah I may just replace it myself if that's the case. Thanks. Starts don't seem to be as quick as they use to.

      LOL, NittanyR32..way to take a quoted post out of context!

      I don't really care and you guys can keep trying to make me the bad guy when all I try to do is share my opinions for a helpful purpose. For anyone who does care, that quote was in response to someone who constantly makes useless posts towards me and since I know he is kidding, I'm just humoring him and he is the one who referred to me as his parent in the first place. I would never make posts like that or some of the other things above if people just stayed on topic instead of trying to single me out.

      I was thinking the same thing, but I just passed 40k... I may replace mine soon anyways, especially since I have the new stereo stuff going in (hopefully) soon...

      I dont care what you say or do. To each his own. I'm just surprised a comment like that was gotten away with, joking or not. Just shows how much things are monitored around here I guess.

      Yeah I may be adding a powered sub for a little extra bump so a fresh battery will be in order also.

      So true. I had one day of warning before it was done.

      It's a REALLY simple install. Took me about fifteen minutes (with an empty trunk).

      I've considered it but what I do care about is setting things straight for anyone who doesn't know what is going on. What I don't care about is what people like you who seem to always try to single me out, think about me. If you want to keep making fools of yourselves, I have no problem responding and egging you on because it's also entertaining to me. You obviously care more about me or you would take your own advise and keep my name out of your posts unless you actually have something to say. Anyone who reads any of this nonsense can see that none of this would be here if you hadn't made such a stupid post to begin with so if you are done, so am I. Hope everyone enjoyed their popcorn!

      LOL, I got no problem at all with stopping this...It's idiotic posts like above that KIDVersion 1 keeps posting that perpetuates this. Tell me, where did I come off pompous with the world's best tech "evar" to set you off this time? Is it the part where I helped someone who asked me a question or the part where I explained what an idiot you are AFTER you showed everyone yourself? You can keep this up if you want...like I keep saying, I'd rather discuss cars and I've given you every chance to move on but you just can't let it go can you? As long as you want to keep it going, I can hang and keep laughing about the whole thing.
