Last century PEOPLE, Im not living in the past, Im living for today... Lets see how this goes lol
        Sixt has a lot of shite reviews on tripadvisor, all similar shenanigans to this.

              Well that was the primary issue that led to me deciding to abandon it. All of the OEM and aftermarket batteries seem to be NOS. I've already been through 3 of them, they start out a little better than the old one and in a year or less are toast. It's unlikely new batteries are still being manufactured for a phone that has been discontinued for what, 3 years now? Especially since the prices for the aftermarket batteries have been steadily falling. I don't even remember which ones were rootable on 6.0.1 at this point. The choice has been made. I might print a case that mounts nondestructively to the dashboard somewhere and use one of my S5s as a data display for my megasquirt now that I'll have 2 of them collecting dust. One with a cracked screen and one with the screen taped in.

                I got tagged by a some (4 or 5?) speed cameras in Germany. Sixt charged me a 15 Euro fine each. I let it go, as that's the cheapest speeding I've ever done. I wish the US did that instead of the way greedy money grubbing asshole legislatures, jurisdictions and municipalities typically do it.

                  Oneplus phones used to be 350 new. They had fast processors, but they didn't spend the money on the fancy cameras and all that other peripheral shit. Bummer to see them sort of selling out now and making phones that are in the price ranges that they were against when they first launched.

                    I do enjoy me some fancy cameras and peripheral shit.

                    I haven't had a nice camera in a while. My S5's never took great pictures, and my S7 edge suffers from an issue where it doesn't focus quite right.

                    I recently backed it up and did a factory reset... It didn't fix the phone per se, but it seems to be performing better than it was so I'm probably going to just "drive" it into the ground.

                          Base model yo, and it has a specific output very similar to an M10, but is completely outclassed by an M42.

                              350hp is pretty meh for a 5.7L engine but with the reasonably priced and extensive aftermarket, it will make significant gains for a pittance compared to what you see in the BMW world. That's the great thing about the LS1.

                              Same. The S5 is a great example of how meaningless megapixels are as a measure of photo quality. The optics and dynamic range are truly shit and the chroma noise is noticeable at even low ISO. With just a faster lens and better glass my 12mp iphone camera produces photos that look better than my S5 ever did. As for having a great camera on my phone, not something I'd spend $1,000 for. If I go somewhere where I want to take good photos of things I bring my DSLR, phones are just for convenient snapshots. Even that fancy triple camera arrangement on a new iphone will produce inferior quality images to an old DSLR with less resolution, the sensors are just too small and the optics too compromised.

                                You can BOLT ON an AFR-based Intake/Heads/Cam/Headers package, get a custom tune, have 500 RWHP on the stock shortblock and STILL be WAY cheaper than a Dinan badge.
