    one thing people tend to forget when buying cars is this:
    check the KBB (Kelley Blue Book https://www.kbb.com/) for any vehicle you plan on buying or even thinking about getting- it will show you what you SHOULD pay as apposed to what the seller is asking. Thats KBB's main function but also gives you insight into vehicle reliability, resale value and reviews specific to year, make and model!

    Also when i saw the title of this thread i immediately thought of this song (from GTA 5) haha

    Not sure how drivers are in general in the U.K but here in the States there are drivers out there that can be complete jackasses.

    Also about ISPs if you can get FIOS from Verizon I would go with that.

    Another major issue about Comcast is that god damn data cap crap they pull. Its not 2002 anymore we do not need data caps.

    I'd imagine it varies by state, but yes I have heard several times that people don't indicate or give space when joining the motorway (freeway, highway?)

    Yup it does vary state to state. I just watched my local news and they said that Pennsylvania is one of the discourteous states for driving during on them serveys.

    Welcome to America, Omagana. Hope you like the heat! :grin: I have relative lives at Northern Silver Spring so I do travel down to MD quite often. Get a car with very good AC... you're going to need it and expect to have patience with the traffics down there... it's actually worse than California.

    On the brighter spot, there is a large MicroCenter in Rockville which has tons of PC stuffs you can actually pickup and see before buying. Great place to build your next rig. I used to get most of my stuffs from NewEggs and now I mostly get them through MicroCenter.

    You've obviously never been to Florida.... Last time I was down there, I decided I'm never going back. Absolute worst drivers I've ever seen.
