I don’t think the F56S is the answer but maybe I’m wrong. In4drives.

I still like the CTR idea. My STI depreciated $5k over 4 years. CTRs hood value better because there are fewer of them.

OT 20: every man for himself

Jeep got rear ended while I was driving to the gym. Green light at an intersection, car in front of me was waiting for a pedestrian to cross the crosswalk before turning right.. could see in my rear view mirror that the car behind me wasn’t paying attention at all and just slammed into the back of ...

But you seem to not care about modern features etc ... at least per your prior posts. Yeah I don't really care for adaptive cruise, Car Play, back up cam, etc. Some of these things are nice but not necessary. I do assume sitting in an F series MINI is still a much nicer experience than a C5 even if...

I biked down a 40 MPH descent in a hail storm with shorts, jersey, vest, and arm warmers only. It was about 35-40 F. Wouldn’t recommend doing that. Yeah, we weren’t far off of that. 40 MPH in 37 degree weather in pouring rain. I was wearing exactly that. It was a bad time, fam. Yeah I was shivering...

Skyline Drive was still quite an epic and beautiful ride and an adventure to remember :lolol: I hope to come back and re-attempt conquering it one day (in July or August).

This is why I ride my CX bike everywhere and leave the MTB to rot for 2 years. I hate driving to a bike ride. Everyone I know who bikes in Philly just rides their bike to the meetup point and goes from there. My CX bike might be my favorite thing I’ve ever owned. I ride to rides and drive to rides....

I liked the low intensity indoor rides, just throw on some tv and chill out. Especially with the trainer automatically adjusting the resistance you never need to think about watts or zones or anything. Now we have no space for the trainer, sadly - unless I set it up outside which seems :fullretard:...

I miss having a fast bike. Y’all think I can make the All City feel fast with better wheels or nah? The Cervelo was a flat out weapon. Fun. Too stiff for me and it never fit quite right.

I mean, you're also hucking a CX bike down MTB trails. :iono:

You've taken them outside of the intended environment.

My dad’s F150 XLT feels pretty poverty. No keyless, some touch pad number lock on the door, plastic fantastic everywhere... The Ram Rebel I rented felt the same way. Just way too much in your face cheapness.

I guess that’s why the king ranch and whatnot exist.

The new X5 is sweet. The Highlander is not. People will put up with some annoyances for that.

New car should be delivered in new condition. You pay the premium for the un-farted-in seats and un-chipped exterior.

Yep lowering is for suckers. Stock HEIGHT is BEST HEIGHT.
My STI was a perfect ride height. Cleared curbs and parking blocks. Looked rad.
