It's rare that such humor could ever bare such truth! Well done!

I am not demeaning or complaining about any generation. My comments are the choices individuals in all generations made or are making when communicating in writing using any format. Social media has only dramatically expanded the audience in more recent generations and therefore the impact of those choices.

I was responding to one particular post. In my view it is much harder for someone that receives such a response to challenge the sender. I felt bad for Crystalworks and that prompted my initial post. I thought it worthwhile to suggest that it is better to apply the adage that has been valid since human interaction of any kind--if you can't say something nice don't say anything at all. I have no idea why that is funny or discounted.

Yes, I know Crystalworks is very capable of defending his choices and stated he was not bothered at all. But I would be very surprised if he expected a member would completely trash his body mods as in--I am posting pictures of body changes I have made and and look forward to hearing from members that hate hate hate it. Anyway, the post I challenged is just one example of a style of negative posts that have become more prevalent over the last year.

I think it looks very modern and not over the top. I like it in red and with those wheels. Not sure about different colors / wheel combination. Great work!

...have become more prevalent over the last year.
I appreciate the empathy, but when I post on public forums among fellow guys/gals who are enthusiasts, I don't expect everyone to like what I've chosen to do. I also expect them to voice that opinion so long as it's in a reasonably respectful manner, which I think all here have done, and certainly don't feel the need to defend anything. I don't consider the forums quite the same as social media, more like a campfire gathering.

Thanks all for the input. Both supportive and critical. Mouse is here this weekend and saw it in person for the first time. Maybe he can come in with his thoughts.

Updates coming later today... In here and in the audio thread. . I now have a TV in my dashboard. And it is beautiful!

Are you connecting to stations via internet? If not, how well does reception hold up when driving? Pass the smores.

Internet. WiFi hot-spotting off the phone. I confirmed satisfactory YouTube streaming and YouTube TV. I wanted to take a pic of the Superbowl on in the truck but we were hosting so was unable to break away.

Because of said Not-so-Superbowl... I did not get any pictures or anything to update the thread with regarding the aero kit. Will go update the other threads though with pics from the weekend regarding the audio install and its progress.

But, the truck did get buffed today and it looks pretty "fresh." Goes in tomorrow morning for a full Xpel wrap on the front end and the side skirts. They said it's going to take 3 days due to needing to be hand cut. "What? You mean Xpel doesn't have any patterns on file for the aero package e53 X5!!!??? I'm shocked." No big deal. As I've said... rather it done right than fast.
