The later years of the last gen xc90 are cooler than the current gen. Here are a couple reasons why:
Finally found a fun boat racing game after playing random free roam games like GTA to get my boating fix. Its called aquadelic GT and its only $5 on steam. Not much about it is realistic but the idea is that you can roam freely around a bunch of different large maps that are littered with small missions, races, boat…
As the temps drop I find myself driving in 40 degree weather with my window down and heat blasting just so I can hear my exhaust instead of just the muffled vibrations through the sound deadening. One month after setting up my exhaust to perfection (for me) I have to start riding windows up so random pedestrians get…
I’ve come to the conclusion that the TL does not photograph well from the rear. I think it’s the combination of the small wheels and the large rear overhang that kinda makes it look blocky and weird.
I know we have a couple first gens and a raider, and at least two 3rd gens. Anybody drive the (imo) holy grail of US available monteros?
Seems like they’re coming down in price recently. Problem is finding one, but if I were in the market for something like this I would be willing to drive to get a clean one.
“Holistically, though, there’s no comparison. The Accord is more comfortable, spacious, and luxurious than the Camry. It’s quieter, rides and handles better, and drives more elegantly. It offers superior technology with a more user-friendly interface. Simply put, Toyota built a better Camry, but Honda built a better…
The perfect set of wheels and tires come up for sale locally. I am on 17's right now so upgrading wheels means a new set of 18" tires as well. At $650 for the wheels I want with a good set of tires on them already this is the perfect deal.
As with any exhaust video, a parked revving car doesn’t the way it does under load. You can hear the general characteristics though which are rumbly on idle, silent through 2500rpm, then a nice exotic wail 2500-3500rpm. I absolutely love this setup because at any cruising speed its in the silent sub 2500 zone and…
Just deleted the mid muffler on the TL and it sounds fantastic, but is very very mild still. The tone is exponentially better, and under full throttle it sings. Around the city I can barely tell the difference, and I haven’t experienced any drone yet.
Spent a day on the New River fishing, swimming, and cruising. For those of you who haven’t seen my posts about it before, the raft is a 14ft inflatable that fits in the trunk of my Acura TL. It’s cheap, easy to launch, and ridiculously stable.
So after 2 days of driving the TL I am not ready to give a full review, but here are a few observations i’ve made about the car.
After an expedited car search over the past week, I have found the one. Its a 2006 Acura TL and (Pending inspection from my mechanic) its the newest addition to the fleet. Just look at my sad Pathfinder behind it.
So I had originally been considering 2nd generation GS400s and 2nd generation g35 sedans, but now finding out that the infiniti may have rust issues down the road, I am not really pursuing them as much. The GS400 is still high on my list, but lack of availability in my area is a downer, and I need to buy quick.
Although I really want to pick up a 2nd gen gs400, its hard to ignore the countless g35 sedans on the market. I think for me to be swayed by the infiniti it would have to be the second gen, which is better in pretty much every way than the first gen sedan, except I find it a little bulbous and ugly.
So the Pathfinder is showing signs of more than just the body rust in the rear fenders that I had initially had my eye on. The front strut mount is developing a little hole and seems like the entire plate is somewhat rusty. This is a known issue that was recalled but if mine is beyond fixing I will have to get rid…
Prettier, lighter, simpler, naturally aspirated, smaller, etc.
