    Yup. Jealous.

    Probably won't be hand washing the cars for at least 3 months (or so)

    Hell, it's still 60+ daily and I STILL can't hand wash.

    I swear, don't move into an apartment if you can help it. I feel like 9/10 complaints I have in life right now could be solved by having a driveway and a garage. Maybe even 10/10.

    damn that sucks, you guys getting snow now?

    for real, its hard to see the shine on this color but it’s definitely there.

    lol thanks

    man I honestly fall in love with this car almost every day more and more, but I really miss that manual transmission though. I think a hatch might be in the future and I’ll keep this one. You might want to clay bar before doing the wax.

    Im honestly waiting on a black friday deal for a set of wheels/tires and the window chrome trim delete. I won’t disappoint you guys ;)

    looks very much like colored concrete.

    comes in a ton of colors, and a bunch of homes are doing designs/patterns on interior concrete floors as well. I've seen quite a few homes with radiant floor heating use designs like these below

    @Honda-Fan Thanks! Its actually a brown-ish color it looks red in the picture, that driveway had multiple oil stains so they power washed it and stained/sealed it to protect it. Yep just like @webby said!

    #truckparkingproblems Crap turning radius...and then you get that in parking spaces when they can't pull forward any further to straighten

    I’ve honestly seen people park like that with all types of cars, I think they’re just lazy and don’t want to back it up and straighten it. It’s dangerous because I saw a lady in Walmart one day park just like that and when she was backing up she hit the car next to her because her wheels were turned and she didn’t notice.

    also lazy people, yes. Crap turning radius trucks also suck in narrow parking lots. Backing out (if you do straighten up) in a crap turning radius truck makes you have to usually back out in 2 stages as well, because there isn't enough room to do a full turn and clear the front end.
