Someone telling me there's no way I'm tuned for
110 because I don't have an EGT gauge

It's definitely a Chevy vs Ford, Ehvo vs STi thing. I've got a 4 (no S) and am happy with what it does for me, although have been looking at the S3's. My girl's Samsung Focus recently took a crap so got the new Nokia Lumia. It's pretty damn sweet actually. I'd go S3 if not for my iPhone Alpine in the Rado and what not. Plus I am one that LIKES iTunes. (because how I started). The windows phone looks good though.

Oh, and what makes me LMAO? Fanboys of ALL types that'll argue incessently that their whatever is "the best". iPhones, S3's, STi's, etc.

Having had 4 iPhones and still having my Galaxy S2 and S3, I proudly voice my experience lol. But I definitely agree. It's Cats Vs Dogs. Some work better for some than another. I use an Apple for my home computer, but I will NEVER pitch someone any iOS device. However, that new Nokia Lumia looks awesome, plus I've heard the new Windows Mobile OS is amazing fast and battery efficient. I'm thinking about picking one up for the heck of having another phone to play with. My only concern is the weight, but, that's easy to get over.

I like my 4 which I've had since the day it came out. It's definetly time to replace it though because I can no longer answer phone calls
I've been waiting a few weeks for my new 5 to come in, I'm guessing it's because i ordered white and not black.

I heard only a fraction of the 5s have been made because the Chinese workers finally went on strike. That might be old news though, I don't actually read news.

According to Apple, they're still making them but the output is significantly lower. AT&T/Spring/Verizon have only been able to accommodate ~20% of their order volume.

:yawn: iPhones=boring and restrictive. They're like the access port of phones. Overpriced and locked. I've only owned one and gave it to my mom..

Good news is it's still rocking on and hasn't died.

I currently have an HTC One X.. But that's because I couldn't wait for the S3 after I dropped my skyrocket in Dale's driveway and broke the screen.

I still have one more upgrade this year... But can't decide to wait for something better than the S3.

I'll probably get a new phone when I run out of storage space due to the lack of a removable sd card on the one X.

Agreed. I've had the i9300 SGSIII which i prefer over the i747 AT&T stocks since it runs a quad core 1.4GHz A9 over the US 1.5GHz dual snapdragon. The performance and speed are both amazing. Samsung felt the need to tune down the American S3 to accommodate battery for LTE. I've been working with the S3 since August, and I wouldn't recommend any other phone above it. 2100MaH battery was another huge sale point. I run mine rooted with a dual boot for 4.1.1 Jelly Bean OS and I run Ubuntu 12.04 ( Full desktop edition ) on the other partition. Runs it flawlessly. Phone meets my in home, out of home, and work needs (=
It is cats and dogs again though. I will always admit the appearance of the iPhone is nice. I love the aluminum body and glass look. The iPhone5 is definitely visually pleasing. The screen is way too tall, and not wide enough ( regardless of them saying to keep it at true 16:9 widescreen ) the 1450MaH battery is too small, the battery drains far too quickly, and I will call Apple out on their "8 hour LTE" as my friend in the states says actively using his LTE with an iPhone5 couldn't get him more than 4-5 hours even with Wifi, tethering, and bluetooth all disabled. Plus a non-removable battery and expandable memory are live savers for people who root/jailbreak/unlock their phones...

Had a guy come up to me when I was getting out of my car. Conversation went something like this.

Him - Hey that's a nice car.

Me - Thanks!

Him - How fast can it go?

Me - I don't know. Never tried to top it out.

Him - How many intakes does it have?

Me - What do you mean?

Him - You know, intake filters.

Me - Oh... Just one.

Him - My Durango has two and it can beat any bro truck around, even the ones with racing tires.

Me - That's cool.

That would have been an interesting conversation. Right after "how many intakes does it have" it would have gone in the "You don't know too much about cars do you?" direction.

But not any Subaru around since most have 3 intakes or more.

And about those racing tires??? They're bald MayPop specials, not slicks.

Me - My car has two radiators..you'll want to make sure that you have two radiators for the two filters if you want to be the fastest truck in town.. I heard the current fastest one has FOUR filters and THREE radiators.
Fixed.

Last night while cleaning up and preparing to leave, Davin and I were interrupted by a drunk old school Subaru enthusiast. He started talking about the 2.2L making 1200HP after you installed a lifted aluminium intake manifold. Started raving about Colin McRae and his super grippy Subaru. This guy left the Subaru scene in 2005 when Subaru left the WRC. He wanted to take a look in Davin's car, but I sternly said no.

He was sneaky! I didn't see or hear him come up to the warehouse door. He was all excited, "SUBARU!!!"

Kind of a douchey drunk. If he was nice it would've been cooler. It was late anyways and I was grumpy.

I think he mentioned having built an Impreza that's 1200HP from 2.2L that went 0-60 in 12 seconds. Davin can chime in with whatever he heard.

He obviously had some knowledge, mentioning Colin McRae and FMICs and the 2.2 block, but then he started talking about 1200hp on pump gas... which btw if you have 1200hp I would hope you could do the 1/4 mile in less than 12 seconds. I'm glad Chano can keep a straight face because I was laughing pretty hard the entire time, kind of surprised he didn't get pissed off. Mind you he was holding one of those LOCO or whatever alcoholic energy drinks, apparently he "smelled Subaru" from around the block. Definitely good entertainment but I didn't like him poking his hand around in my engine bay, I didn't even know he dried to get in, thank you for stopping him.

Edit: Oh did he say 0-60? LOL I just heard him keep saying 12.

A couple weeks ago I saw an old Saturn sedan that must have been lifted at least 18"s and had I long filtered snorkel.
