No didn't miss your point. You were pretty clear that the American 3/4 ton crowd is somehow uninformed and surprised that a mid-sized SUV can tow well. They do. But then you have someone like me...

We give you weird looks because there are much better choices for towing than the 35d. X5M and "American" 3/4 tons come to mind.

Congrats! Love the Tundra. It will be fun for you to have a vehicle you don't have to worry about dumb crap happening (unless it is a FFV perhaps).

Sales prices seem low for such a good car. Just bored of it? Somebody will get a great car for not much outlay for sure.

All attempts at making more power from the E70 N62 are futile. Just enjoy the on-tap power that it delivers. Even if antiquated by modern turbocharged standards.

Yup. They definitely ride firm. I've dialed mine in a bit by dropping tire pressure to 55 psi from the 75(!) psi that was in there from the dealer. My wife and I drove all the 1/2 tons and 3/4...

4.8is was highly touted for sure. I loved the sounds and it had great steering feel. But the slightly less powerful 4.8i we moved to felt quicker and handled better as well, even if a bit artificial...

Meh. Still like the 4.8i better and the 4.4 twin turbo even better. Lots of 35i owners and fans. It's all good.

I've owned 2 E53s and 2 E70s. I think the E70 was a significant jump in terms of reliability, electronics, and size. E53 was just a bit too small and had a long list of quirks. Liked the driving...

This is seriously funny. Good use of proclivity.

Outside of an obvious leak or white smoke from exhaust, I think the 4.8i is still a great all round choice.
