    Is it less civil on BITOG, or is it just me?

    I have to agree. I rarely post any longer, but do read a number of the posts. The constant bickering, rehashing the "domestic vs. import" argument and constant Pablo references to bodily functions and excrement get old real fast. It's a decidedly different place than it was 2-3 years ago...

    Mattress Set

    About 3 years ago we searched mattresses extensively when we decided it was time to get rid of our current bed. I spent about a month trying to decide which one would be the best for both of us, since it all boils down to comfort and a good nights sleep. I couldn't find a mattress that both my...

    <blockquote>Quote:<hr /> ^^^What did I say that wasn't true? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" /> <hr /></blockquote> The most intelligent rebuttal to the post you can come up with involves an insult to a member and boogers? It should be pretty clear with whom the...

    Reccomendation Please...

    I tried 15W40 in my 1992 300ZX and wasn't happy with the performance. I could tell a difference-it didn't have the pep that it does with Amsoil 5W30 (which I now use). Although I have an NA, Amsoil should have no problems protecting the turbos. I also agree with Volvohead that Redline would...

    GM On the Rise

    GM has a long way to go before they regain the trust of the American consumer. Despite a few recent reviews, Toyota is set to overtake them in worldwide sales either this year or next, unseating GM from a throne it's held for many years.

    Where should you store your oil?

    The oil really doesn't care. It's not like it will break down under normal temperatures-if it did then a few weeks inside the engine would destroy it. I keep mine in the shop-it sees lows in the sub-zero range to the 70's in the winter, and highs in the 70's to low 100's in the summer.

    Is this legal???

    No different than someone who works in a downtown location and has to find their own parking spot-garage, lot or otherwise. Your employer has no obligation to provide you with a parking spot unless there is city code or a contractual agreement forcing them to.

    2006 Jeep 4.0 I6...don't see any good syn recs

    In both of my Jeeps (a 1996 and a 2000) they almost always showed high iron numbers-although within acceptable ranges for that engine. The only exception to that was when I ran Castrol HM dino in the 1996 Cherokee-the iron was extremely low. In my Cherokee I have switched to Castrol HM 10W40...

    new bathtub-whirlpool or jet air?

    We have a corner whirlpool tub in the master bath and really enjoy it. It's a great way to relax. Just don't make the mistake of letting anyone put bubble bath in it.

    Could A New Battery be bad?

    The new battery can be faulty. I purchased a Dodge pickup new in 1994, within a week the battery wouldn't hold a charge. The dealership replaced it and it was fine after that.

    As good as any other 20 year old car that's worth 300 dollars.

    Editorial: Auto Industry Predictions for 2007

    Both Ford and GM will show prototype cars that raise a lot of buzz. By the time they get produced the production model will be far different than the prototype and the market will continue to be disappointed. GM and Ford will both continue to do well overseas, but Toyota will be the #1...
