Trees add a lot to the exterior. I want to plant a few ocotillos to replace 3 that aren’t doing so well.

Back on topic!
Haha! Thanks bro. It seems this thread covers a wide range of topics. I guess we could only talk about the grille/front bumper or certain members being banned for so many pages.


P.S. I still love the front end if the G8X.

I am annoyed at the Kayanos, as I feel they have gone down in durability and quality. They used to easily last me 450ish miles, but now they are barely making 300.... Also, Asics has made the Kayanos look more like the "super shoes." I don't want all of my shoes to be carbon plated super shoes. I have noticed that my cadence is less when using the carbon plated shoes, even though I'm running faster paces. So, I like to use the non-carbon shoes mostly so that my cadence stays high. Anyways.... I could go on and on...
That's actually funny because I been looking around for shoes for daily purposes for a bit. Both for driving and jogging/walking as I jog/walk every day (weather permitted). When I went back to Taiwan about half a year ago, I ran into Hoka Clifton 9's being on sale. It was less expensive there at that time and they had my size and the wide version so i got it.

My feet is slightly wider so the typical narrow shoes don't work, hurts my feet. So, haven't found any shoes I can really use as shoes for driving (don't know if that is needed).

This method and approach was shared by the delivery specialists at the PEC when I picked up the car. It all sounds a bit ridiculous in or out of context, but it's effective. If I have passengers, which is rare I simply help them in and out. My wife has it down pat now. Also, beware if your significant other wears heels. They can easily damage the door sill if not careful upon ingress or egress.

The bolster protectors are also a great investment as the bolsters will get destroyed over time. Do you plan to purchase seat inserts?
I been going back and forth between Justin Placek and P1 Design. I am unsure on if I need memory foam or not for P1. Thought I did but now I am not too sure. I also prefer as close to a OEM fitting as possible and the P1's memory foam kind of sticks out and it may bother me. So, I am literally just sitting on it until I figure that out.

JP's problem is how to order and how expensive it is.

The bulging and non-OEM look and fitment of the P1 inserts killed it for me. The insert not being fully seated would bother me too much. Not to mention I wanted the 911R fabric and Kim at the time mentioned she could no longer source it. Placek was just too expensive in my opinion. It appears to be of good quality, but it felt like a price gouge. I ended up going with ClassicFX. They came out perfect! Very happy with them.
