Or in the case of Words with Friends, board games to video games to board games... It's pretty sad when the only way to sell Scrabble to a younger generation is to label it as a Zynga game...

I've recently gotten back into Lego after a 10 year hiatus. Having money and resources makes it a lot more fun.

US Gallons are 3.79 liters. Imperial gallons (used in the UK) are 4.55 liters.
AddedHowever being that the original post was referring to an American vehicle with a tank measured in US Gallons, the 3.79 liter measurement would be the correct one to use here, even though it is referring to fuel prices in the UK.

Give it time. People aren't inclined to dive from a long-term relationship right into another one unless they are looking for a rebound, which will not work out well for you in the long run.

You probably should have googled how to spell "elementary" while you were at it.

I believe the original version of this went, "I will get out of my car, put my dick on your windshield, and sing 'Amazing Grace' as slowly as humanly possible."

I enjoy confusing people by saying it out loud, ever since I saw this image a few years back.

That's pretty sweet. I had a dude on XBox Live (where my username is the same) message me and tell me the exact same thing, then add me as a friend. It was the most mild-mannered encounter I've ever had with someone while playing Black Ops. Anyway, I don't personally own a 924 Carrera, but I've always thought it was badass and created my username years ago. I do, however, have a modified B5 S4, and am looking to pick up a B6 S4 soon.

As a resident of the West Coast who has heard the same thing, I'm here to tell you that sadly it isn't true. The burgers aren't bad, but I was severely underwhelmed. So you aren't missing out on anything truly divine. Also, fans of In'N'Out are like fans of the movie Elf...if you disagree with the absolute perfection of their object of worship, they will insist that something is wrong with you.

Hey there, just dropping a line to a fellow car enthusiast! Is your username your favorite?
924Carrera +1 karmaSeptember 2013
Hi! My username is kind of interesting. Years ago as a young teen I was infatuated with classic Porsches and I found the uniqueness and rarity of the Carrera GT/GTS variants of the 924 to be especially desirable traits. I also like the boxy and angular 80's styling of many European cars. So, I adopted that as my username (sometimes in the longer format of 924_CarreraGTS) on forums and such. Nowadays, I have other preferences (although I still think it's a neat older car), but "924Carrera" has become the "online persona" that I identify with. It also helps that I've never seen anyone else use anything similar, so it's kind of "my thing." Anyway, sorry about the TL;DR, as I'm sure the same basic ideas apply to most people's usernames. These days I am an Audi enthusiast. I am currently building a Stage 3 B5 S4 and plan to get a 2.0T A3 in the near future. I also plan to acquire an 80 Quattro Coupe in the future and restore/convert it to S2 spec. All that being said, I am a car enthusiast in general and I appreciate and respect almost all cars. It saddens me to see the more immature car "fans" bashing on their "rivals" instead of uniting for their common interests. What cars are you most interested in?
Avilator +1 karmaSeptember 2013
I ADORE the Tesla Model S. But that S2 Quattro sounds epic. I do like a fast Audi myself, especially the S8. Something about the sleeper status makes it more epic, like the E63 AMG wagon. I like Jags, too. I personally would like an F-Type V6S. More realistically, when I'm done with my degree I might go for a Focus ST or a BRZ/FRS. Totally different cars, I know, but I like them both. If I were to list every car I like, I would be here for ages!
924Carrera +1 karmaSeptember 2013
Yeah, the "sleeper" aspect is one reason I love my S4. When I'm done with the build, it should have around 450 horsepower, but to the untrained eye looks just like a harmless A4. I've looked into the S8's, but unfortunately they are only available with automatic transmissions. This is pretty typical of large luxury sedans, but still a turn-off for me. What I'm more likely to get as a larger sedan is an E39 M5.
Avilator +1 karmaSeptember 2013
E39 M5? Yes, please! :p
924Carrera +1 karmaSeptember 2013
My friend has a 2003 E39 540i 6-speed M-sport, which is about as close to an M5 as you can get without an S62. It has just about the nicest, best-fitting interior I have ever seen. I have to say I don't care much for the BMW's built after that point, partly because I am big on DIY work and they have made that very difficult, but they are still nice cars. I'll stick with E39/E46.
Avilator +1 karmaSeptember 2013
I'm with you on those being the last BMW's I'd be interested in owning. If I had to go with a modern German, it would have a 3 pointed star.
924Carrera +1 karmaSeptember 2013
It's interesting that you say that, because I actually work for Daimler. We have a pretty good employee lease program for Mercedes-Benz cars. They are definitely sharp-looking and well built. However, for the DIY aspect I mentioned, they are one of the worst in the business - some don't even have dipsticks. The idea is to push people into dealer service only, but this is of course quite costly. Also, most of their US lineup is only available with automatics (which I suspect will continue into the future until manuals completely die out...I'll stick with the older cars). If I were to buy a brand new German vehicle, it would have to be an Audi, hands down. I love what they have done with the styling and the build quality. I would probably choose an S4 or S5 from the current lineup. As I said, I intend to buy an A3 shortly, but I'll probably go with a 2009 or 2010 model (6-speed, of course).
Avilator +1 karmaSeptember 2013
No dipsticks?! Damn. The newer Audis do look really good, but I think the Mercs look better. Also, I'm not bound to the idea of a manual in a daily driver of that caliber. My first car will certainly have one, but some newer cars out there are still compelling even without it. However, a sports car would unquestionably be a manual.
924Carrera +1 karmaSeptember 2013
I can understand that, but it's not true for me personally. I have been commuting in an automatic lately and I absolutely hate it every single day. I was driving the S4, but now that it's torn apart for mods, that option is out, and it will be a little excessive for a DD after it's done. The #1 reason I am buying the A3 is to get back into a manual car for my daily drive. Again, that's just my personal preference, but I strongly believe that a 4 cylinder really needs a manual to be optimized. Anyway, that's my peeve of the day. How do you feel about older hot hatch VW's?
Avilator +1 karmaSeptember 2013
I'm not into older VW's but I will say I'd prefer one of the earlier marks of GTI to the modern one.
924Carrera +1 karmaSeptember 2013
Yeah, I have a 1982 Mk1 Convertible. I'm swapping in a VR6 from a Mk4 Jetta. It should be a pretty fun car. I also plan to get a Corrado one of these days. I love that body shape.
Avilator +1 karmaSeptember 2013
Sounds like you have quite the selection of German hardware there.
924Carrera +1 karmaSeptember 2013
That is indeed the case.
Avilator +1 karmaSeptember 2013
What's your opinion on the new Jaguars?
924Carrera +1 karmaSeptember 2013
I like the XF, but I preferred the previous XJ, which always had a very "stately" yet sporty appearance to me. I have always been ambivalent about the XK, although it does look better than it used to. I don't know much about their reliability these days, but they've always had fairly solid build quality.
Avilator 0 karmaSeptember 2013
I like pretty much all of them. Perhaps I've been influenced by Clarkson's point of view. :p In any case, the exhaust note from the V8 is one of the best on the road, IMO.
924Carrera 0 karmaSeptember 2013
Yeah, V8's in general sound great with a proper exhaust system. I like my twin turbo V6, but I love the sound of the B6 S4 with that 4.2 V8.
Avilator 0 karmaSeptember 2013
And of course, there are some sixes that sound awesome as well.
