Re: New car advice

Very true :).

Dude your E46 M3 lasted over 100k without any major issues? Makes me really want to get a zcp toy...

That's what I said, but experience the 918. It's as insane as the Carrera GT.

Re: New car advice

Yeah unreliable for sure, especially electronics and suspension, but I've never had a transmission go out on anything besides a BMW so far. Doesn't stop us from buying them though lol :).

Re: New car advice

I absolutely hate the x3 - one of my least favorite cars ever made. Not as practical as the x5, drives worse than the evoque or q5, and ugly as fucking sin. As an aside, I've had crap luck with bmws from the last 6 years. Currently have in the family a 335 where the transmission went out 3 months af...

Re: New car advice

I'm a fan of the Q5 but I can't see ya driving one Darin. It's just too feminine.

Out of your list, I like the Touareg for unisexuality the most.

Re: Cold Brewed Coffee

I appreciate well-made coffee, and I did cold brew for awhile at home, but it was a PITA. Now, I only have "good" coffee when I go out. At home, with two boys to take care of, I use Starbucks VIA packets. Lollll. Take that, connoisseurs. It's better than Keurig at least. Ouch :(. Sent from Tapatalk

Re: Cold Brewed Coffee

I can't tell the difference between good and bad coffee. Help a newb here - what's a discerning factor in the taste and/or smell? Is it the boldness?

A 328 bracelet on the pre-owned market will go $800-$950. Thats it, even LNIB? I'm not sure if it's worth splitting up my full kit for that much coin. I say that now until I get ancy. Haha Yup.
