Almost all of I-15 through Utah is posted at 80. The pace is about 85. I drove down to St. George this weekend (here now) and didn't see a single state trooper. Where it's posted 65 in Salt Lake and...

Your wife's taste in granite has more to do with how much you pay than knowing or not knowing the difference in their quality ;)

Seriously though, any true granite enthusiast can see that's pretty low grade stuff. Frankly, BJ's wife deserves better!

I owned a 2003 and 2008 Odyssey. The 2003 was far more reliable, but still had significant problems.

The 2008 was absolute garbage. That was the LCI year, and they decided to change the door auto...

Yeah, that would be interesting. Someone in a different thread mentioned something about altitude, which would make a difference. I'm at 4,600+ feet. How high are you?

550 - Turbo Lag....... Supercharger Superior?

This on-topic post was refreshing ;)

Yeah, it could be that my expectations are too high. But it is still annoying nonetheless.

I'm not trying to compare my life to yours. Maybe 85K is nothing where you live. I'm fine with that if it's true. It doesn't really matter either way.

Anyway, my point was I wish there wasn't 1...

550 - Turbo Lag....... Supercharger Superior?

You get the 550 instead of the 528 for the acceleration. You're going to hit the limiter on the autobahn with any 5er trim. It's how quickly you get there and how that feels that matters to a 550...

Yes, I would think so. Unfortunately, at least in my 550i, there is still lag. In this scenario, I don't start feeling the turbos probably until 4000.

This is how I approach hitting an opening...

Hmm. This is a timely thread for me. Just this morning I noticed this for the first time and wondered why I'd be smelling it. I'll need to check closer too. Hmm.
