Considered Q5, X3, and Volvo. Ended up with stelvio as was best suv to drive by far. there is a top gear episode comparing velar, stelvio and xc60. They broke 2 new xc60s in the testing. Stelvio is also safer than x3 and Q5 and only 1 point behind xc60.


Safety, styling and value for money are great
Driving dynamics and engines, boring


Considered the SC60, and for the price point the Q5 was just a bit better, plus we got an SQ5 for the price of a Q5 on a promotion.

I drive a Volvo s80, and love it. The SUVs look awesome. I did see they received some lower ratings in one of the consumer magazines, but I’m not sure why. It seems like Volvo is moving into a more luxurious space every year. Your wife is a lucky lady.

Volvo SUVs look classy. And by classy I mean actually classy

The only issue I have is you need to go all the way to the XC90 to get a third row. There is no option for a third row in the XC60.

The XC40 is a great looking car for sure, but it is quite small. If you have kids you will at least want the XC60.

We got my wife a 3 y.o. XC90 a year ago. She really likes it. If you need 3 rows, the big Volvo is larger in the back than the Q7 or really anything in that class. Reliable so far, and about as safe as anything short of A Tesla.

Drove the XC60 T8 for a while - loved every piece of it...

XC90 looks awesome

Those of you who lift, what kind of program do you prefer? Full body, upper-lower split, push pull legs split? And how many days per week? I’ve been doing PPL since I started and am thinking about switching to full body, but concerned that you can’t really lift more than 3 days per week (4 on alternate) doing full body since you wouldn’t be able to train two days in a row.

#SAP senior tech consultant vs #Snowflake SQL cloud support engineer?

Base/bonus are about the same. SAP has RSUs but not with the offer. Snowflake has RSU as part of the offer (not sure how much yet though). Both within a growing team with great potential, visibility, and impact.

SAP would be more sales support & client interactions more mplementation & sales engineering.
Snowflake would he dealing with tickets. Quarterly reviews with "quotas" and metrics. Weekend/holiday rotation as well.

Turbo S or gt3? And why?

I’m going Turbo S!


Moving to a city that will require us to buy two cars (one daily commuter and one family SUV). We have two kids. For the daily commuter we are thinking the Model 3/Y, and for the family SUV we are thinking RAV4. Household income $350k per annum. Are there any other suggestions that we should look into? We have about $30-40k to put down on our vehicles. Thanks!


Someone please tell me that I can get a rear facing child seat in the back of a mustang… otherwise it looks like I’ll have to buy a new family car to drive the little one around (wife doesn’t drive unfortunately).

Could be a good excuse to get a Taycan but was hoping I could just stick with my mustang. We said next car will be an EV didn’t think it would be so soon though!


Looking to replace my old Camry and hoping to select between a Lexus ES or Genesis 70. Focus on reliability and comfort and looking to use the car for 15+ years of possible. What would my fellow fish recommend? Also, it is worth considering new or lightly (<10k miles) used? Car will be used mainly in city driving for a family of 4.
