  1. SoCal Social Distance Drive?

    Would love to go but it is to far south for me. About 100 miles one way.
  2. Sacrifice New and Higher Trim for Reliability?

    I have owned the 2017 Hatchback Sport and now own the 2020 Hatchback Sport. As of 2020 Sport Trim levels are now equal as far as what is offered standard. The 2017 Sport Hatchback had the tweaked engine and exterior upgrades but had the LX interior. The 2020 Sport Hatchback has the tweaked...
  3. High speed "excitement"... cops were involved.

    Just read a local news report about some guy from Texas on a Suzuki motorcycle going over 100 mph according to the CHP and was reported doing lane splits by an eyewitness and then another eyewitness reported the guy's bike soloing down the freeway without its rider. The bike ended up blocking...
  4. High speed "excitement"... cops were involved.

    If I see a car or truck with CA exempt plates on the freeway I assume they are law enforcement undercover. Cause I have see Highway Patrol in plain white fords and big black SUVs. Whenever I see a cop or WAZE is indicating a cop is ahead I just lift my foot off the gas at least it slow down...
  5. SoCal Social Distance Drive?

    They have been having protests in Huntington Beach so I am not sure if anyone wants to be near that especially since the cops will be looking out for stay at home order violators. The stay at home order ends on May 15th so hopefully there won't be any delay in that.
  6. Fun roads to drive on?

    There are a number of back roads of various types between Santa Clarita and Antelope Valley. A few small rural towns with local gas station and market available. There are roads you can drive for miles with only occasional homes or ranches. Never saw a cop. There are flat straightaways and...
  7. SoCal Social Distance Drive?

    Sounds interesting. I am not sure if I can make it cause it will be a bit of a drive for me but would beat staring at the 4 walls.
  8. Anyone just chill in their ride?

    When the cabin fever gets a bit much, I head out to back roads of northern Los Angeles county and test my driving skills against sharp, blind curves with no shoulders and long drop offs in places. Or I just hop on the 5 north and take a long fast drive to the Grapevine. I don't stop I just...
  9. Help with Mods for 1.5T Coupe CVT

    I would recommend these tires for someone who wants to improve road handling and road feel without breaking the bank, I did a lot of research before selecting these tires and I was very pleased with how my car felt on the road. I freely admit I am a bit of an aggressive driver so it was nice...
  10. Help with Mods for 1.5T Coupe CVT

    Like all things in life, driving a stick shift has its good points and bad points just as driving a CVT does. Here in LA county driving a stick can get absolutely mind numbing due to the stop and go traffic on the local freeways especially when a trip would normally take 30-40 minutes with no...
  11. Help with Mods for 1.5T Coupe CVT

    I replaced my stock tires on my 2017 Hatchback Sport (CVT) with a full set of General G-Max RS tires and boy that made a difference in how my ride felt. My ride felt sportier and quicker. The only things I had done to my car was put in an A&E air filter and use premium gas to get the 180 hp...
  12. Anyone upgrade to 2020 Hatchback sport?

    I upgraded from a 2017 Hatchback Sport to the 2020 Hatchback Sport. I had added in tweeters in the front and a 10 inch under the seat powered subwoofer to my 2017 and it was nice. But I really like having Apple Carplay and the increase in speakers. It does ride a bit quieter but you still can...
  13. Getting out of 2019 Si lease early and switch to financing 2020 Si?

    I was interested in getting a 2019 last summer and the dealer would only do a trade in or buy out only. What this meant the dealer would pay off my lease and then start a new deal. The only time they would do a lease trade would be when I was within 3 months of my lease ending. Once you get...
  14. Getting out of 2019 Si lease early and switch to financing 2020 Si?

    I just traded in my 2017 Hatchback Sport (leased) for a 2020 Hatchback Sport (lease) and as a trade in I broke even and I was well below the max mileage. I traded it about 3-4 months early before my lease ended. The only way at this point a dealership will handle this deal as a trade in which...
  15. Dump trucks and bad drivers with beat up cars

    What I hate is when a semi blows a tire and the tread flies off heading in your direction. I had that happen to me on the freeway and there was a long distance between me and that semi but man do those treads fly fast through the air. At the time I was driving a Kia Soul and the tread hit the...
  16. Anyone in the Air National Guard or the Airforce? I have a question

    Bummer. If you are serious about getting in the military check with the other branches to see if you are disqualified as far as they are concerned. The Air Force is the smallest branch of the military as far as number of personnel needed whereas the Marine Corps and Army need more personnel...
  17. Anyone in the Air National Guard or the Airforce? I have a question

    If I may share, when I enlisted I went in as guaranteed job not job field-Aircraft Armament Systems Technician-a bomb loader is what I signed up for. I needed a Top Secret Clearance at the time and I had to fill out a huge long form and put down my history for the past 10 years that I could...
  18. Anyone in the Air National Guard or the Airforce? I have a question

    Whatever you do if once in you find you don't like the Military culture DO NOT DO STUPID SHIT TO GET OUT EARLY! I can not emphasis that enough, serve your full term and get an honorable discharge and you will be eligible for VA Benefits which can help you in the future when needed. I knew a...
  19. Anyone in the Air National Guard or the Airforce? I have a question

    When I joined in Feb, I was actually underweight but by Nov when I went to Basic I was at my ideal weight. After Basic I was 5 pounds heavier which I stayed at for a number of years. I was never a person interested in exercise and being buff, I really hated the push ups. Push ups were very...
  20. Anyone in the Air National Guard or the Airforce? I have a question

    I was also in the CA Army National Guard for 7 years as a cook. Don't ask me why but it was either that or small engine repair or tank repair, I was tired of doing mechanical type jobs. I don't even like to cook at home. The National Guard is bit more flexible as far as what station you want...
