    Site seems slower since upgrade?

    Tell me it is a figment of my imagination, because it just feels slower than before. :( It isn't my internet (speedtest results) either, if anything my internet speed is faster now than before and I also notice this at work which is pretty fast. Loading pages, submitting posts, and marking...

    WTT/WTB Looking for Final Fantasy XII PS2's (Korea/HK/SG/AU/NZ)

    ***UPDATE*** I'm completely revamping this thread for easier use. Below is a list of all known releases and in [] is how many I own. I'm sure there are Platinum versions of at least the UK version but I'm not 100% sure. I need the following games in RED the most. If there are any versions...

    Having trouble with my home audio

    So we paid for a home theatre setup when we built the house, 6 in ceiling speakers and 1 subwoofer connection, and I am not sure what sort of audio receiver to use. I have a Pioneer 7.1 receiver already but I cannot get the side and rear speakers or the subwoofer to work. Not sure if it's too...

    2018 Subaru Crosstrek will have ATV standard (that's active torque vectoring)

    So this was a pleasant surprise. Subaru is now making the Crosstrek a good option in it's class. Now if only they would just add a damn turbo already! They've also developed a better way to mount the anti-rollbar and supposedly that reduced body roll by 50%...which is good. Sometimes I...

    Ownership Verified: 2016 Dodge Charger R/T -- I needed a V8 in my life

    Traded my V6 for a V8 and life is good. The abundance of power is extremely satisfying. The 8spd auto is super smooth and power is always available. I love it. Gotta get used to the front and rear design as I liked my old Charger's styling. FYI, 5.7L V8 w/370bhp & 395 torque Proof pic...

    Dash cam opinion

    What do you all think of these two? I'm thinking about getting a "dash cam" but I know literally nothing about them. I just know I don't want anything stuck to my dash or windscreen. They seem to get good reviews and record very well at night under low lighting conditions. :mrgreen...

    Which color do you like poll...

    In 1 year and a couple months I'll be trading in the Jeep for a truck, a specific truck assuming I can find the one with right mileage and such. I have a quandary however, I'm torn on color. So I ask my Final Gear brethren here their thoughts on the color. :lol: :mrgreen: My default color...

    Any idea what this license plate is?

    Was driving on the Dallas North Tollway and saw this newish BMW 528i and this plate. It was odd that it has no markings and just DEL and the number. Didn't even look like a Mexican plate either. Oh and I don't think it is a dealer plate because it lacks other information that they contain...

    Ownership Verified: '15 Jeep Renegade, yea so we bought a Jeep

    And I'm so glad we did! Its a Latitude model with the larger 2.4L I4, 9spd automatic, and FWD (4x4 was too much $$). Plus, seeing as there have only been ~5,000 of these sold in 2 months that it has been out in the US we have a rare vehicle (for now lol). The proof pic is attached and the...

    Ownership Verified: '14 Dodge Charger in, old cars out

    So first things' first the proof pic is attached. [Long story, skip if you do not care :)] Since the last time I was here I traded my '03 Mountaineer against my wishes (the wife made me do it) for a brand-new '13 Ford Focus which was a big-ass mistake. That stupid DCT transmission was...

    The new Daily Driver has arrived in SUV form

    Traded in my problem red hooded step-child Focus SVT for a 2003 Mercury Mountaineer Luxury V8. This thing literally has almost every option except AWD. Plus the awesome bit? I paid less than what this car would get on trade-in thanks to my employee discount at my Ford dealer. On to the...

    Anybody have a working NTSC Super Wild Card DX2 for sale?

    I made the mistake of selling mine in 2006. I don't really care if it is the 32MB or 64MB version, or if it doesn't have a box, it just needs to work properly and be NTSC. If not a Doctor SF7 might be ok I guess as the next best thing. I've bought more SNES and SFC games that I need to...

    Lets talk SUV's

    Getting a saloon car is out the future wife says. I (we :lol:) want something with more space and bigger. Now, the only SUV I was considering was the Infiniti FX35 and the Ford Expedition. However, after driving a few SUVs lately on my hunt for a new car I'm left with a couple of burning...

    If one were to say want to swap an engine from another car into a project car you own what is the best way to get the new engine mounts fabricated? Lets say for argument the engine you want to swap in is actually has less cylinders and much less displacement (obviously). Also your project car...

    Poll: Vote on a RWD V8 saloon

    The premium car discussion is dead, not going to concentrate on one. But I'd prefer really anything that's RWD and has a V8 in saloon form. My budget is an MSRP of $16,000-20,000. My budget is better now that I got promoted this week at work. A V8 is a requirement, unless you've got a great...

    Generally speaking what would be the mileage cap to buy a premium car pre-owned...

    ...to avoid any electrical or mechanical nightmares soon after purchase? I'd need to get at least 20,000-30,000 miles of trouble free motoring out of my next purchase. The cars have to at least be 2004 or newer. This is after all going to be my family car once we have kids. All my dreams of...

    How reliable are X350 2003-2007 XJ Jaaaaaaaags

    Out of curiosity and for other reasons I'll keep to myself for now...my question seems to be an easy one since there are a lot of Europeans on this forum. How reliable are 2003-2007 Jaguar XJ's? Particularly the XJ8 and XJR? What common issues should a potential buyer look for? How many...

    Color choices for a 5th gen (2005-2009) Mustang GT convertible

    I've decided when the time is right and my SVT Focus is paid off and or I can absorb the upside down value and trade the SVTF in the next vehicle I will purchase is a 2005-2009 Mustang GT convertible. As much as I'd want an '03-04 Terminator Cobra that isn't going to happen. And anyway you can...
