Re: MT: 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4WD Z71 LTZ Road Test

Man..... I love my 2500 Burban but if it ever started giving me drama (unlikely), I would pick one of these up in a heartbeat. What a beast!

Re: MT: 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4WD Z71 LTZ Road Test

Want.



The LTZ Chevy variant is virtually identical to the GMC Denali. Minor aesthetic differences but same truck with all the same goodies.

And shame the X5 cannot tow like a 3/4 ton...

Re: F80/F82/F83 M3/M4 thread

I agree with Frank's assessment. I drive the F80 much more than the E46 but it really is a great all around car, which we can and do have 2 child seats in the back of. That said, I did drive the...

Re: Verizon Wireless is bringing back unlimited data

So you have no home internet available where you live? Or you just choose not to have it and use your mobile data instead?

Re: **Watches**Watches**Watches**Watches**

Yeah, I didn't really agree at the time of purchase of the 15400 but do now. The 15450 at 37mm is too small for many and then you have the 41mm, it is unfortunate.

Thanks, really enjoying it.

Re: **Watches**Watches**Watches**Watches**

I love my ROO at 42mm but it fits differently than this one as you probably know. The height and proportions seem at home on my wrist with it. With this one, I just think 39 is right for me.

Re: **Watches**Watches**Watches**Watches**

If I recall correctly, on my BR01, there were screws that went into the strap pin at either side of the case. Is yours the same? I so, how did the pin come "loose"? Did one of the screws come out?

West Palm (Moroso) or NJMP. Not a single configuration of Pocono I can stand and Dominion does not look great at all but a nice facility.

Most people around the DC area who took off are those who took off to protest. Probably the same people who took off to attend in 2009.
