Guys, I'm looking for a new wheels. Ideally, I want an SUV that would have a comfortable ride on a highway. 0 to 60 in less then 6 seconds is nice to have, but not a requirement. My job requires frequent trips from NJ to PA or Boston. Occasionally, I want to be able to take it off-road. I have never done it before but would like this as family bonding activity. I know it will come up but I think the Wrangler is too spartan for me, and I test drove 4Runner SR5 and didn't really liked it. So with that said, I will really appreciate your insight and recommendations :). Oh BTW I'm coming from G35x which I love but.. Thank you in advance.
My GF's car has some pretty foggy/oxidized headlights. I've been doing some internet digging on ways to fix the problem aside from new housings. So, I wanted to see if anyone has had any experience with some of the kits available for lens restoration for oxidized housings. I have heard good things about the Sylvania kit. There is also the simple do it yourself way with some automotive wet-dry high grit ( ie 2000-3000grit) sandpaper, soapy water and then some plastic polishing compound ( equivalent to 5000 grit I think). Thanks for any help/opinions. KCCO
Time to replace our tires on the LR2 as they're almost out of legal tread. Anyone recommend somewhere to have the new tires fitted within a 20 mile radius of Secaucus (Hudson County). I've seen there is a STS Tire in East Rutherford and Jersey City. There's also PEP Boys and some independents. We'll most likely order the tires from TireRack. TheWombat
Anyway, as some of you may know, my '97 Maxima is currently sitting around until I can get it fixed after being rear-ended by a Mays landing driving instructor. Though this probably happened the other day (as my mom mentioned her car being broken into again) I just noticed about an hour ago that my car was broken into, and that stuff was scattered around inside. I think they first looked through my glove compartment, since everything in there was emptied out onto the seat. The funny thing is, my center console hardly had anything moved around in it. Only the papers at the very top were taken out of the console, and left on the driver's seat, it also looks like they got out of there in a hurry since they left a set of sunglasses and a phone charger in my car. The papers at the top of my center console? NRA membership papers I never sent in XD. Oh, and before you ask, no, we didn't bother calling the police, car break-ins have been going on around me for a few months with regularity. The last time my mom's car was broken into, they ended up releasing the guy with no charges despite his lengthy criminal record of drugs/theft/assault charges. As usual, the police around here are worthless for anything but traffic violations.
