Wreck SVT will be sold off on Friday (whole rest of care if all goes as planned) so no I dont have brakes laying around. and yes that interior is g horrible. All Black R interior is way more better.

At the end of the day though. more of you think focus with turbo is better idea than R which I actually find kinda surprising...

Still torn.

A growing body of research shows that coffee drinkers, compared to nondrinkers, are:
* less likely to have type 2 diabetes, Parkinson's disease, and dementia
* have fewer cases of certain cancers, heart rhythm problems, and strokes

http://articles.cnn.com/2010-04-28/h...n?_s=PM:HEALTH

And in 2009, two coffee studies suggested additional benefits: Coffee-drinking men seemed to have a lower risk of advanced or lethal prostate cancer than other men, and middle-aged people who drank moderate amounts of coffee -- three to five cups a day -- had the lowest risk for dementia and Alzheimer's disease later in life compared to less (or more) frequent drinkers.

Can drinking coffee even help you live longer? Maybe. A 2008 study found that women who drank coffee regularly -- up to six cups a day -- were less likely to die of various causes during the study than their non-coffee-drinking counterparts. Because consumption of decaf coffee showed similar results, researchers don't think caffeine is at work.

My personal opinion would be the focus over that specific R32.

I still vote .:R as a better car for sure I just think thats crazy money for something that needs body work.
also I think a $13k sports car is silly when you know you want to buy the G at the end of summer plus a ST in a couple years.
your insurance will be outrageous.

I vote for cheaper fun car now + G35 asap then ST
then find a track car

by then your insurance will have gone down quite a bit too as an added side benefit.

I'm getting shudders just thinking about what your/my insurance would be on a R

caffeine is a catch 22, it stays in your body for days and then decreases the quality of sleep you have. so you're body then needs the caffeine to become awake enough each day. you're essentially running on less than 100% at all times because of coffee.

and honestly, if you think about any of those studies, it would take a lifetime to tell if those are actually true, not just some simple survey that has a few guys with Parkinsons that never drank coffee.

and type 2 diabetes has nothing to do with coffee, its caused by obesity and genetics, you could argue that eating a bowl of cereal everyday decreases diabetes if you set it up right.

either way as much as I love coffee I know that for myself in the past when I've quit drinking caffeine or noticeably cut down the amount I drink I usually feel worse for a couple days and then feel drastically better about a week later.

also as of my writing this I've drank a little over 64oz's of water today which is most definitely more healthy than a few cups of coffee and a mountain dew like I would've usually had.
