  1. I think it is a little bit of both but they are claiming beyond their capabilities. The problem on my car is on the ignition side with a total of 4 codes being thrown (3 of which don't call for replacing the soon to be mentioned part). I will be happy to go into greater detail, but I will keep it simple for now. The code that they refer to points back to a problem with the ECM, and the first "remedy" is replace the ECM---to which my mechanic automatically says take it to the dealership. Upon my digging into the all knowing internets---others (including mechanics) have had eerily similar problems with the same codes and they have done much less costly repairs without replacing the ECM and without going to the dealer. Again, there is a lot more to the story. But I am disappointed in my mechanic. We have used these guys numerous times over the years and I just feel like I am getting the short end of the stick.
  2. I've still got the D7s in the bag, but I think I am on the same line of thought you are with these. If Goldilocks were a set of irons.
  3. I normally don't post here but I need to vent. Had an issue with the car earlier this week and had it towed to the shop. Mechanic called me 4 days earlier than expected to tell me that they can't do the work and I get to pay him a cool $93 just for the convenience. So, now I have to find an honest mechanic that can (and will) do the work...and figure out how to get the car there. But it is all good. Praying for you guys out west with the fires and everyone further south with all of the flooding!
  4. At the end of the day it doesn't matter what putter works for others because it has to work for you. I am likely to try something because a friend likes it. But rarely does it ever work best for me. When going the Most Wanted route, I tend to find myself landing much closer to products that work for me. Look for stores both online or brick & mortar that have trial periods that will allow you to return the product if it doesn't fit. I just found one in 2 minutes of searching online--(they have ER2s & Queen Bs). Feel is subjective, as has been said before. But I am pretty sure you can get used to the feel of a brick at the the end of a piece of PVC pipe with enough practice. The end of the day it has to work you.
  5. I am surprised at how wide the soles are on these irons. It seems to me that Wilson really made a GI club aimed at better players (little offset, forged goodies)
  6. Best post of the year. Stud giving congrats and throwing darts is what we are here for. Congrats @B.Boston on a much deserved win (cheater). Congrats to the forum regulars who give this place life and keep it moving. I am ashamed that I wasn't here to heckle with and at you guys for the whole season. @GB13, you have failed me for the last time. Lastly, congrats to @xOldBenKenobiX. It takes a lot of time and dedication to win the forum member award in this thread---well deserved. Enjoy the spoils and let us know if the new new is good enough to find a semi-permanent home in your bag.

    As long as you do the basic routine maintenance for Camry/Corollas and most other naturally aspirated Toyotas, 140k is just getting warmed up.
  8. It’s been great having you here! Congrats on 2k
  9. Thank you guys! You went above and beyond on your anniversary @revkev. Hope you and Mrs. Rev have a great celebration! I’m most interested in how these interact with the turf compared to what you are used to (thin/wide soles)
  10. Could you guys please do side by side comparison photos like @greggarner did?
  11. We need someone to check his golf balls and cell phone video. There's evidence somewhere.
