    You could probably drive more gently and slowly to make up that little of a difference.

    several months late but had to say goodby to the accord. signs were suggesting it was going to need a engine out level repair. Found a decent deal on a CPO Acura TLX 3.5 SH-AWD Tech pack to replace it

    overall quite happy with it, its purely a commuter car for me right now. The SH-AWD platform is kinda fun, but i havent had a ton of opportunities to test it out. Im not sure id look to do any suspension mods, have a few accessories waiting for when i have a garage to work on it, fogs and rear parking sensors

    The plan is in 1.5-2 years returning to md/dc to resume working for MedStar's research group, i just had to go somewhere else to prove career wise i really learned things and can function independently from the people who trained me

    I was thinking Arizona. But I'm open to ideas. Won't happen anytime soon since my wife wants to be close to her family (with her dad being in an assisted living facility).

    so far all ive done is tint, oem parking sensors and fogs. Not sure how much if anything else im going to do to it. Too many computers control everything

    Ive thought about slightly more aggressive brake pads and this, but the setup is 1200 and while it sounds good im not sure it sounds 1200 good
