  1. That XS Power logo you created is one of my favorite features of the truck. It might be a 'small detail' but it came out THAT well. I haven't posted on here in years now, but had to come in and comment on that thing.
  2. A look at things to come. Rockford DSMs going 6ch active on Daytons and Peerless. Wait for the build log.
  3. Curbed the fuck out of one of my wheels today. Thank god it was the stock one. Parallel parking next to some high ass 12" curb or something ridiculous.
  4. Is the bass going to knocc? Just kidding. I can't get over how clean it all is. I want to put it in a car that is also clear so that it can always be seen.
  5. Pretty much since OEMs had to switch to water-based paint (VOC reduction) there has been more orange peel. It's just the way things are now.
  6. Rocking a Dodge Dart rental while my car gets fixed...giant piece of shit. Can't be too mad though. The family that came in to Enterprise after was in a much worse accident. Currently looking at 2014+ IS 350 RWDs and IS Fs........
  7. This. I doubt the car is totaled. I'm guessing $4K in damage. Bumper cover/paint, crash beam, mounting tabs, fender liners(?), Adjuster said there's a little bit of unibody deformation too. So I'll just get fucked on resale. Will be filing a diminished value claim with her insurance to recoup some of the fucked-ness.
  8. ON THE WAY to get the ILX appraised at CarMax....idiot in an Impreza slammed into the back of me at a red light.
  9. We have maybe 10-20 days a year with snow on the ground when I leave for work. I haven't seen anything accumulate past 6". If I go the Lexus route I'm doing an AWD one, despite the weight increase/MPG decrease
  10. I've been in the new one...I like it a lot but I don't know if I want to do another FWD.
  11. Yeah I do work for Honda. The ILX replaced an 8th gen Civic, so it was a big step up from that and I was really enjoying it for a while. Then I test drove the 250... As far as the Pepsi/Coke thing: driving another brand where I work isn't nearly like what it's like if I were to work for one of the big three. I know Ford has designated lots for 'other brands' that are farther away from the entrances. Not so at Honda. There are definitely some people who care, but the focus is more on how you do at work than what you drive to get there.
  12. Really beginning to regret buying my Acura....it's a VERY nice car, and it's reliable. Though for what I spent I could have done much better in terms of fun to drive. EDIT: There is no escaping the fact that it is based on the 9th gen Civic platform. I am considering wheels/tires/suspesion or saying fuck it and getting the 2015 IS250 AWD I've been eying up. ILX is faster in a straight line and better on fuel, but that Lexus is put together damn well. Lexus dealer is also warrantying this particular CPO car to 2021/unlimited miles.
  13. GF's parents. Well mother at least. Skeptical that she is dating someone who isn't Indian. Hopefully it gets better once I get to meet them.
  14. Lusting over that damn thing. This and the first-gen Escalades are my favorite ones. They really upped it with this recent model. It's getting further and further separated from the Yukon and Tahoe with every refresh; definitely a plus. The painted wheels and tint look really good man. Do you have a 'roadmap' of what else you want to do to it?
  15. Was just about to say 'fuck this' to buying a condo....when two great ones in an ideal neighborhood pop up. It would've been my excuse to pull the trigger right away on a weekend toy car.
  16. my wireless network. once in a while, the internet will just stop working randomly...in the middle of loading a page, it'll lose internet access. At first I thought it was my ISP (time warner), but it seems now that it's the router. Which is to say a $150 Linksys. I'm fiddling with locking the 2.4/5GHz bands to hopefully less-trafficked channels, but it's still doing it.
