[email protected] Nexus not having LTE. Google seriously screwed up and the GS3 is still the king.

I do the same, but right now I'm looking for a '09-11 WRX premium package in white pearl with under 40K.

I have the old Galaxy Nexus and it is a great phone. I was actually going to upgrade to the new one until I found out it did not have LTE. From the brief reading I have done the reason it does not have LTE is because they want to release it without any carrier restrictions at all and have one phone for worldwide use.

I think carriers will smash this pretty quickly. I dont' think Google is strong enough to pull the carriers into "compliance with consumer desires".

What type of stupid question is that, mods on a Subaru are way to expensive for Scott to even think about.

I am planning on buying this tig welder on Thursday. It is going to cost me about $85-100 to have the correct 220v outlet installed. I have never welded anything in my life. So this will be a very interesting learning experience.

I wanted a LGT for the past 2-3 years until I test drove one back to back with the Nissan. I passed on the subie and bought the car I never noticed before.

Subarus are like civics now. The WRX interior is too "boy racer". I'd go for the BRZ if I was going to buy a Subaru.

So I was coming back from the grocery store and some punk ------s decided to **** with me in traffic. There were two of them so I played it cool. Then, they followed me to my apartment, I stopped, three of them got out of the car and started talking ****. I said, "this is not a ******* game, get the **** back and leave immediately!!!" with my pistol down just below the door. I guess they realized what was about to happen so they got in their car, left, I called 911 to tattle, parked the car, opened a beer. lol

Whoa, that was close.

This may not be the norm, but I have a friend who has blown ringlands twice. I was in the car the last time it happened. 2011 STI. I don't know if the pistons are the same, but you should be very careful. It did have a tuner on it.

Edit: Cobb Access Port tuner, in-case you're curious. He also pulled timing and ran race gas anytime he drove the car hard.

How does this work? You are driving along and they just lean out of their window and verbally assault your sexuality?

I have never had anyone (other than police) hassle me in any of my cars so I am curious about the scenario.

Whoa, that was close.
For what it's worth, if you noticed them following you, it would have been best to go to a different apartment complex or a public parking lot. If they want to physically display their hurt feelings, they now potentially know where you park that sweet chariot of yours.

...and the start to my day, courtsey of a woman in a R-Class Mercedes deciding she didn't need to look before changing lanes.

At least you weren't driving something nice. That would have really sucked.



Sorry, man.
