  • what discount can i expect on a brand new lexus es350 (total after tax/freight=$52000)?

    I will be purchasing a new lexus es 350 with upgrades and after taxes and freight it will be $52000 (i live in canada so thats the canadian price). Before upgrades it would be $49000. I will be financing the car and I will NOT be buying an end of year model. How much of a discount do you think i will be able to get in general off the total price? I would like to know the the usual discount amount before i go in there and negotiate.

  • Should i undercoat/rust proof my new luxury car the 2013 lexus es350 (with galvanized steel)?

    I will be buying a the new 2013 lexus es350 and I am not sure if i should do an undercoat for the car. I would just the the undercoat the car and would NOT rustproof the body so its not necessary to drill holes in the car.

    For my old car i did undercoats every few years but i hear that since the car is modern and its a lexus that it uses galvanized steel which wont rust. So with the galvanized steel, would i need to rust proof it? I plan on using my car for a long time.

  • Full Synthetic V.S. Synthetic Blend?

    I am debating for between the full synthetic and the synthetic blend. My 2012 honda pilot has a factory OEM oil of synthetic blends, so i am considering using that, but i am hearing that synthetic blends is not good for the engine and I'm not sure if this is true. I don't really care about the difference in oil life/mileage because I don't drive that much. I just want the oil that is best for my engine. Between the 2 oils, will one be better than the other in terms of protecting and prolonging the life of my engine?

  • Will using full synthetic oil affect the oil change sensor light?

    I want to use full synthetic mobil 1 oil on my brand new honda pilot. Full-synthetic will last longer than the factory OEM oil which is semi-synthetic blend. I was wondering if the the oil change sensor light will recognize that this is full synthetic instead of semi-synthetic blend, or will it just go off early thinking that it is synthetic blend. This would very annoying since the light will say I need to change it while i still have some oil life left.

  • Synthetic engine oil- 4 months v.s. 3 months.?

    I am getting a brand new car and will be using mobil 1 synthetic oil. I live in Canada, and the winters are pretty cold so i would prefer to use synthetic oil. I heard that synthetic it will last longer than conventional oil in terms of mileage, but can i use it for 4 months instead of 3 months if i am still under the 6000 miles? The reason for this is because i use 4500miles in 4months and 3500miles in 3months. It seems to early to change it at 3 months since synthetic has a lifetime of 6000miles.

  • getting engine oil in a brand new car for the first time?

    I am going to buy a brand new honda pilot and I want to use synthetic oil for my car but i heard its bad to mix or switch between synthetic and conventional. So does that mean that when i buy my new car, i have to tell them to put in synthetic right from the beginning? and would they do it?

  • Guitar Amp recommendation. Fender v.s. Marshall?

    I'm looking for a guitar amp to play at home. I want a good brand that produces good sound quality as well as durability. I want to buy a good amp so i think I'm going to go with around 30W. But, Im debating between the Fender and Marshall. I was looking into the Marshall MG30CFX which is a 30W for $215, but the Fender Mustang II is 40W for $200. I heard that marshall has a better sound quality and that Fenders are only good for guitars. Which one do you think i should get in terms of durability and mainly the sound quality.

  • Guitar Amp recommendation. Fender v.s. Marshall?

    I've been looking for a guitar amp to play at home, but I want a good one that has good sound and is durable. There one i really want is the Fender Mustang III for $300 since its 100W, so it seems like a good bang for the buck. Is this a good amp?

    Although, i was told that Marshall has a better sound than Fender and that Fender is better of for just guitars. So i looked into some Marshall amps but they seem expensive. One that I would consider is Marshall AS50D for $360 but it is only 50W, and the Marshall MG101CFX which is 100W but is $435.

    I like the how the fender is 100W and is cheaper. Also it has the LCD display which i like. Does anyone know that if the Fenders have just as good of a sound as the marshall or similar?
