with the amount of miles it looks like you put on, it might not be a bad idea. For normal 12-15K /yr drivers, I would say no.

Just got my new Road and Track. The new Q5S with a sub 5 second dash to 60 and under 60K looks kind of appealing......Anybody here driven one? I'd love to hear an opinion or 6.

I did not want a full size SUV so I looked at the RDX (numb steering), Infiniti EX (too small) and the Q5 (too mainstream in my town and ho-hum styling IMHO). Overall I went with the X3 due to 3.5...

2005 Tacoma Double Cab Sport 4x4. Kinda like an old pair of shoes I cannot part with. Been bulletproof, and I will likely replace it with a new model of same truck.

ordered mine thru the dealer parts department. Maybe cost a couple bucks more, but it never hurts to start building a relationship for later.

Order it the way you want it (with the 3.5 and M pkg), spend over 50 and celebrate the Royals win over SFO. I see you're from KC, so I'm making a rash assumption.

I always thought idling for a while before shutdown was a good practice too. How exactly are the turbo bearings lubed after shutdown? Is there a reservoir with check valve in the system?
