      Yup, red one was on the road then...september/October I think?

      I may make the 5 hour drive out from CT yet, playing it by ear. Depending on finances I may end up in Maine at Mt Katahdin too lol. Too early to tell yet


      I'm the opposite in rush hour/gridlock traffic. I hate constant clutching and shifting every 5 feet. I will say this much, driving thru Hartford kinda sucks no matter what you have, however the GT/manumatic mode was a lot nicer. Drop it in 2 and leave it there til traffic thins out then take off like a bat outta the hole as soon as there's an opening

      Who ended up with the white R?

      I use winter mode when I'm in traffic in any of the automatics. Lets you force it into 1 2 or 3. That helps a lot. Can't do that with ME7 though. Need a MY00 with a 7 position shifter or a GT.


      One of my friends who I used to work with teaching sailing bought the white R. He saw my T-5R and decided he had to have an 850 and bought a Platinum Edition estate a few weeks later. That got hit on 128 last year (WHIPS ftw) so I sold him the white R to replace it.

      Hartford is miserable either way for sure but I donít mind a close ratio 6 speed in it. I donít think I could deal with an M56 in that though. You can walk faster than the M66 clutch out in 1st at idle. Perfect creeping gear. Does murder your brake pads though if you leave it in gear until say 700 rpm. Pads are cheaper than a clutch though

      See, I've never actually driven the m56/m66 so I can't comment to that effect. My experiences are with close ratio DSM boxes and the getrag 5 speed/Muncie 4 speed in the Fiero. That 4 speed suuuuuucks in traffic...

      As for winter mode in traffic, I've tried it but my car craaaawls from a start. I find GT locked in 2 or 3 to be better long term. Reminds me of the 850 in winter mode, starting out in 3rd gear :rofl:

      Lol yeah winter mode actually used that way is useless. Very useful in 3 and L for traffic though because winter mode turns D into 3/4, 3 into 2, and L into 1.

      In your ME7 cars that is the right attitude. I used to have that attitude in the M4.x cars until I read the owner's manual and realized it was actually useful lol.

      Good point. I think I should slap a Bernie sticker on this thing somewhere. This car looks way too fast for me. Need to make it look like I'm doing 15 under the limit in the right lane when I'm actually going 80 so I can get some people to pass me and maybe push the pace up a bit.

      Yeah. I modify my sticker collection in the T-5R depending on where I'm taking it. Bernie sticker usually comes off if I'm going south of PA. That said I did once leave it on for a trip to TN and I was getting tons of compliments on it .

      That's because most people in TN (and the deep south) are still polite and hospitable. If it was 70F during the winter I would still be living there lol.

      What's up with the Capella's? Need to make them bright silver and they'll really pop on the black car.

      Why would I try to worry Jared? I'm certain he can make his own decision. Silver stands out imho and his car is fast lol.

      What's up with the Capella's? Need to make them bright silver and they'll really pop on the black car.
      Yeah so the Capella came that way. Getting those refinished is very very high on the priority list lol.

      I dig those exterior mirrors...A bit more than the xc70 abominations that are on my car. Are they heated memory with homesafe function and turn signals on the winglets?

      I think homesafe is the headlights and puddle lights under the mirrors lighting up when you push the little yellow button on your keyfob.

      I love em...just wish I had a little yellow button to push lol. I'm stuck flipping hi beans as I get out of the car.

      Damn, that sucks. Looks like I may do 05+ xc90 mirrors then

      Oh? When I pull back on the switch, my headlights come on and stay on, interior lights go on, and the puddle lights light up. Stays on about 1-2 min...

      Deja vu though, I feel like maybe we've discussed this before lol

      Home safe on all our cars turns on the puddle lights, parking lights, interior lights, and city lights (if they're not burned out, or removed!). I couldn't believe I didn't know about this until a few years ago. My kids weren't impressed when I had that eureka moment lol, but getting them in the car on dark mornings for school was a little easier.

      I'm surprised you don't have puddle lights on those '07+ mirrors. I've never seen those mirrors as our S60's (past & current) are '05s. My S40 has mirrors w/integrated turns and also has puddle lights

      Great score. Suprised your ABLs don't have massive hazing.

      You're not happy with the aspherical mirrors? I have a used OE pair coming from Latvia on the slowboat for my 2009 S60.

      The mirror is great. Problem is the housing extends so far aft of the mirror that it obstructs like a third of the convex area so my field of view is not very good. Look more closely at the picture, you'll see the issue.

      Am I crazy to ask if anyone else has noticed that the mirror glass on P2's seems to be a bit too far recessed in the housing? On the xc70 mirrors when they are adjusted properly, they are all the way out on my car. the left edge tucks in about 2-3" and obstructs part of my view. I can only imagine if its the same with your mirrors Jared, that convex area is useless then

      Pretty similar on my VWs, all of which got asphericals. You have to adjust inwards and see the flank of the car. Couunterintuitive but there will still be no blind spot. I'll mess around with it when I get my mirrors in.
