Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    There are so many worse things than those lights

    I think they look good, and having faint lights while you drive isn't such a bad thing.

    helps when parking, seeing your headlight reflection in their car

    I'm hardly an enthusiast, but its stylish as fuck and definitely serves a purpose. Seeing one on the road was why I started researching this car in the first place!

    daytime running lights (though I'm not sure those are bright enough to qualifiy as DRLs, but they still draw attention) are never a bad thing

    I mean it's a relatively conservative expression of style

    we're not talking fart can/angry lawnmower honda exhaust or park bench spoilers on front wheel drive cars

    Well, they're advertized as DRLs so I don't know what else to call them.


    Also every website I go to has people talking about dedicated ipods for their car that they just leave in there. Maaan, that totally defeats the purpose of me buying an iphone in the first place.

    well

    most of those ipod interfaces I've come across don't work with iphones. it's really starting to piss me off, I'm about to try to find a cheap old mini or something to use

    Oh, I guess I'm kinda lucky then. It's nice because it works perfectly, and the bluetooth in the car pairs with my phone so I can just do hands free calling, but because it's in the glovebox I can't use the GPS functionality.

    daytime running lights are mandatory in new cars in canada and quite honestly i can't see how anyone could advocate against them. driving at dawn and dusk, the cars without them are a huge pain in the ass to see from a distance.

    considering i still see people driving at night without headlights, let alone in the rain, i think DRL's should be mandated here as well

    So the US cash for clunkers is either a massive clusterfuck, or a spectacular success.

    well it sounds like if they used all the money for it, then the maximum amount of cars were taken off the road which I'm pretty sure was it's goal, along with providing an infusion of business into the new vehicle market

    so one of my dad's buddies has an A6 on which the lease is running out, so he's looking for a new car

    he stopped by his dealership to talk things over, since he's not crazy about getting another A6 and was looking at BMWs and whatnot

    they offered him a CPO relatively low mileage S8 for apparently a very attractive price

    i'm going to have words with him if he doesn't get it

    magnificent car

    I am selling my American muscle car and buying a motorcycle, and a cheaper, more fuel efficient car.

    No one can stop me, as I have rationalized to the extent no other man can.

    If you find my posts inexplicably invisible, it is because they do not exist, and I have died in an amazing motorcycle wreck.

    No that's me. I'm not THAT arrogant.

    We were the ones who thought that Melissa was real. Why you might ask.
    Let me put it this way, it was an "OH SHIT OH SHIT, THEY FOUND ME :(" moment. I wasn't ready. My code wasn't compiled yet. Our plans weren't setup yet!Sentient programs rarely run into other sentient programs.
    Some of you have met me, and I understand your concern of my well being. But that time for that boy, that child, are gone now. Viscount Alpha is no longer operable. His functions are now mine.He may post, but I am the one talking not him.My data, my code will live on forever in his servers.
