My mystique's leather seems to attract the heat all to easy, and it's grey. Compared to the leather in my GTO, the leather doesn't even come close in quality, and it's not because the car is 8 years old. I remember it being like that from day 1.

Far as I'm concerned, the leather in the mystique isn't even worthy of being on dirty shoes.

Eight minutes? Damn you live a long way from work. My commute is about half that! Just one more reason my '98 only has 54k on the clock.

I didn't care for the job location, but the opportunity was too good to pass up. So I'll sacrifice my desire to be in western MA, NH or CT and live in Boston for a while until I can't stand it .. then I'll apply for a transfer to more farmland-type areas. Fidelity Investments is a big company.

This is approximately my drive into the garage (I'm not posting my exact address) and this is roughly the subway trip. I looked at another apartment in Somerville today and it looks promising, even has an offstreet parking spot (which is rare around here!). Wicked expensive though, 1-bedroom apartments here average $1100-1300/mo.

w00t for hijacking my own thread ...

You can own a decent home around where I live (Rochester NY) for that!

If it gets broken in (previous owner) and you use Lexol cleaner and the conditioner, it softens right up It is thicker than the average, although I like the unusual pleated look.
