    If it weren't for the 30 mph speed limit and red lights, the main street near my house would be a ton of fun.

    I'd laugh my ass off seeing a Tesla on 2.5 ton axles and 40" tires. Range: 36 miles.

    IS350 could be had with AWD, LS430s are very nice, but no AWD option. AWD was introduced with the LS460. https://www.carmax.com/car/18399183 https://www.carmax.com/car/16813462 Had a dyslexic moment on your budget. More appropriate: 2009 LS460

    What's your budget? If you want a BMW/Merc, you can lease them for $500 a month. Alternately, Lexus GX470/GX460. Love mine, super comfy, and you can buy a Prius strainer for a bumper. Also still compact enough to be maneuverable. I'd suggest a Hyundai Genesis AWD sedan, but they as competent...

    Unverified Ownership Little Blue Pill - 2014 Porsche Boxster

    Yeah, $1600 odd for the spark plug job, $300ish for an oil change, lolno. I think I paid about a tenth of that to do those jobs. Hell after taxes, that would cost almost the same as the valved OE Sports Exhaust system from Suncoast.

    Unverified Ownership Erm, why not a third?

    You utter mentalist. Job well done. @CrzRsn now has another orange and green tic tac friend.

    Too true. To add to the tire thing, I ran mixed rubber on the Multistrada (Q3 front, Roadsmart 2 rear, then a PR5). Never had any problems, but I'd rather have a matched set as well.

    Unverified Ownership Little Blue Pill - 2014 Porsche Boxster

    Upon calling the previous dealer that serviced it, I realized that it needed the 40k service (and was a bit overdue). So while waiting for the bodyshop to finish the paint, I ordered the requisite bits (2x air filters for the motor, 2x cabin filters, six Bosch spark plugs, the oil filter...

    That's good! I know I'd have a lot dumber cars if I had good local public transport.

    Ownership Verified: Yet another black Focus and its two-wheeled roommates

    Best of luck- selling bikes always sucks. What's your plan for a replacement?

    It's purple and has KW coilovers, that's all you need! In all seriousness, @public is bang on. Boring commuter box is a requirement when you have an older car. Hope it works out though and you can hold on to it as it looks great and seems like a good base for tinkering with.

    Random thoughts.... [Tech Edition]

    Just pick up a refurbed Mac Mini. I bought a 2011 Mac Mini because it had the old school 30”ACD for $450 off CL. Microcenter and I'm sure others sell them.

    Same, the color combo is what grabbed me. Over here, most interiors on P cars with interesting exterior colors are Sand Beige, which is not unlike sitting inside of a Barbie doll.
