Re: ’16 BMW X3 vs. ‘18 RDX

If you decide on the BMW, be advised that the free maintenance probably isn't transferable, and an oil change is somewhere in the neighborhood of $170. I love German cars, but they can be a bear to maintain and repair. It was $100 for an oil change on our previous X1..same engine as the X3. $170 se...

Re: Bike riding thieves steal man's $95K Patek

I don't have much sympathy for someone dangling a Patek out a car window.

The bezel is different on the renderings. I like the look, but would pass on a carbon fiber-esque dial.

Re: Opinions-first car for new teen driver

Anyone suggesting a modern GTI for a 16 year old is crazy. This. I had a 3 yr old Honda Accord for my first car and in a year I had a high speed chase, multiple tickets, and drove drunk more than a handful of times. I was also a respectful, straight A student and had no previous legal infringements...

It takes a lot of mental fortitude to physically and mentally prepare for a feat like this and even more to plow through fear and...

Also, Jimmy Chin is amazing. As with his other films, I’m sure his work with the camera is just a much as character in the film as the actual people. He’s also a great guy. Met him multiple times at screenings and climbing events.
Agreed. Meru was amazing too.

Free Solo

This is probably one of the most insane accomplishments in climbing. The movie is probably going to gain some awards. Check it out if it is in a theater location nearby.

Interesting Weiss colaboration

I like the watch minus the stupid artisans of freedom logo on the dial. It is way too expensive IMO, but I am happy he seems to be gaining some mainstream traction: https://www.allenedmonds.com/accessories/personal-accessories/watches-jewelry/limited-edition-weiss-time-piece/SF1014870.html?dwvar_SF1...

Re: New Doxa Poseidon

Doxas wear different from traditional watches due to the case design. My Poseidon should be here soon. It'll be my 4th attempt with one. The previous 3 were flipped because I thought they looked better on everyone but me.
