    Maybe you'll get the sweet deal @smcgill got and get a Super Duty diesel!

    Or he'll be like me. Bring in an 8 month old F150 with under 10K for warranty work and get a gumdrop for a loaner!

    I've only done 2 oil changes with Banks Chevy/GMC but they've let me take a Colorado both times. Salesman lets me drive his demo whenever I am there.

    Ouch... Who'd you piss off at that dealership? If it's only a couple hours, or even a day, I'm fine with whatever they give me. I've had a Focus a couple times for half a day. If it's going to be an extended duration, I push for something as good or better than I bought. Toyota in Dedham gave me a brand new TRD Sport for the few times mine was in for recall or warranty work. It was nice!

    How do you like the Colorado? I thought they were very akward getting in and out of, but once you were in, it seemed comfy. Never got to do anything more than sit in them though. I really want to drive one of the new diesel models some day. No intention of buying one, just want to drive it.

    No idea. I dropped it off on a Monday for what was supposed to be a quick swap of a bad body control module, but they ordered the wrong part so I had the Fiesta for 3 days. Then they called on Wednesday and said they ordered the wrong part again and it would be another two days. Then they called on Friday said that they'd ordered the correct part but that Ford had shipped the wrong one (right) and that they had another one coming but it wouldn't be there until the following Wednesday. At that point I was sick of it and told them that I wasn't making an F150 payment every month for the joys of driving a Fiesta, so they could either make my truck payment for the month or they could get me a truck for a loaner and I didn't care if they had to pull a brand new one off of the lot to do it.

    Lo and behold I got a brand-new F150 from the new car lot for the rest of the time they had my truck, but at that point I was so unimpressed that I never went back to that dealership again, even though they were by far the closest and most convenient one for the oil change & rotation package I'd bought. And then I traded the truck 10 months after that, so it was a moot point anyway. :notsure:

    They just gave my FIL a tundra while he gets the frame replaced on his sequoia. Initially they gave him a loaded highlander but he can’t tow anything with it which means he couldn’t fish so they swapped it.

    Hey all,


    when I work on my truck I put these yellow haz-mat absorbent pads under my truck...They work great and absorb everything...it was great doing my oil change...anywho we get 20 of these pads stacked up with every delivery at work so we always have tons sitting around. If anyone ever wants a stack of them and is in the rt9 to rt95 on 495 area let me know and I throw some at you as a speed bye :)

    I think they are these

    Oil diapers. Loves those. I get them sometimes. Usually they're onsite.

    I'll have to see if I can work a link up when cruising through.

    I read an interesting article about braking and at first I disagreed but the more I thought through it, the more it make sense.

    If you can immediately lock/activate ABS in a panic situation, brakes aren’t the limited factor in your stopping performance and the best brake kit in the world won’t affect your ultimate braking distance. That doesn’t take into consideration fade such as in heavy towing and racing situations. You can change brake feel (more aggressive pads, stainless lines, etc) but tires get you more than brakes.

    Sure, the Brembos on my STi felt great and were night and day compared to my Accord with disc/drum in terms of confidence but the 235 series Pilot Super Sports I had on there sure beat the 215 Kelly summer tires I had.

    I could engage ABS at the drop of a hat with the electric brake booster on my ‘13 with the KOs on it and that never happened with the Hankook snows. The brakes felt better with the highway tread tires.

    Yessir - haven't gotten them mounted yet - been busy with other stuff. These rims went from being affordable to being worth a lot of money... the powdercoating wasn't cheap but they did an amazing job for the condition of the rims. The previous owner of them sand blasted them with bead or something and totally fucked up surface.
