I currently drive a gorgeous and exciting 2013 Chevy Captiva graciously provided to me by my company (FM Global). The fact that it is a company mobile is the only reason why I have not killed it with fire yet. The bugeye is our IT guy. However, I should be picking up a 2014 WRB Hatch off of Clayton on the forums here sometime in the next month or so.
When the weather was nicer out I was riding my DRZ400SM (white) in every so often. I'm only in the office about once a week as I work in the field. In May/June I should be in almost every day though.
I do find it interesting the cars I spy in that garage every so often. Over the summer I used to see several M3's of various vintage, wrx's, several new model Porsches, and a slammed S4 that has seemed to start making appearances again, etc..
Threw the summer wheels and tires back on yesterday. Really feels like I bought a brand new car again. I cannot believe the difference. I mean I knew what the difference was like going to winters, but after being on them for ~6000 miles, the difference is unreal.
Next up, Whiteline sway bar and Kartboy endlink install this spring.
The TOB problem did not rear it's head again and the whistle/chirping went away after that week we were in the single digits for temperature.
Also, for the ~6000 miles of road time, my winter tires (and wheels) held up beautifully. The tires look like they're still brand new. I would recommend them to anyone, especially with the improved road grip I had this winter. Excellent quality. Will purchase again when needed.
