I’m still playing with the light, and it takes a fair bit of in camera monkeying, but I wanted some cold light to simulate those nasty street lights they use in parking garages. Right now the mix is like 2/3 warm 1/3 cold.
It’s an obscure one. It’s The Dude’s Gran Torino. Not a custom. Greenlight actually makes that model just as you see it.
Great to see the hobby hit Jalop Prime. Now I have an excuse to show off my work!
Question for the BMW Wagoneers: Does a 3 series lose some of its magic with X-Drive? I’d LOVE to go wagon instead of sedan but I really don’t need X-Drive in California.
Great reply. in TF2 the Alternator was like a whole different (and awesome) gun if you rapidly tapped the trigger instead of holding it down. This had the effect of keeping recoil well under control and adding distance. Is this still true?
I even found this problematic when I test drove the 2016 Mazda 6. It just felt needlessly obstructed. One of many reasons I wound up in an Accord which is way easier to see out of and has Lanewatch to boot.
Is there anything to the fact that Chevys are utterly ubiquitous when it comes to rental fleets? Lots of people have brief dalliances with a GM car when they rent and they seem to come away unimpressed.

My hunch is the S60 and the XC60 aren’t that similar, but they're both excellent. Much as I want to go RWD next, the upcoming S60 looks pretty great.
My mom has one of those, and they’re legit great at their jobs. They make a ton of sense except for that little intangible sensation of toppling down the road. I just feel more planted in my Accord and the sightlines in the Honda are excellent by any standard let alone today’s.
That’s a great point. It is a redeeming value of theirs. Not enough to sway me, except right now I have a back strain so my Accord is suddenly a bit less perfect for me.
Obviously one should know how to do this from reading the manual. But failing that, you can get a combination glass breaker and seatbelt cutter to keep in the center console for basically pennies.
