    All things in moderation, Mendel. That stuff will give you a headache.

    I drive through there once in a while! (good ol' I-78) But that doesn't count.

    I-78? Oh, no—-the worst interstate in the East. Or maybe anywhere. You have my profound sympathy. Don’t get caught in a snow storm; you may be in your car for five days!

    LOL. It didn't used to be so bad (like 20 yrs ago?). But yeah - now pretty annoying. I'm in central VA. I've got peeps in the Bronx and others about 60 miles north of there in the Hudson Valley. The *supposed* shortest route to either place always turns up on GPS systems as I-95. Holy cow - hell - and I say the worst interstate in the east. So the alternate is taking I-81 out of central VA. If headed to the Bronx as first stop, I-78 is, unfortunately, the only real choice. But if headed to the Hudson Valley, I can stick with 81 up to Scranton and then pick up I-84. Mountainous and not fun in bad weather, especially after Harrisburg. But way less congestion!

    I've been through there a few times, but I've been through just about every US interstate highway a few times.

    Shame, you missed one of the nicest Gen1s I've seen at the auctions in a couple of years - went in Harrisburg last week for $2700. It had almost 100k miles, but it was way clean. I wanted to bid, but they blew right through my budget. I figured it would.

    Yeah, I forgot about I-95--bummer. Although south of Richmond it gets better. I once went around DC twice on the Circumferential because I missed my exit sign. Haven't been down there in years, doubt if I ever will again.

    Wish I had known about that one. I'm paying more than that to have my brake booster/accumulator assembly replaced!

    In my opinion I would change the spark plugs before the ignition coils. I would go with NGK. If problem still arises then I would purchase the ignition coils. I would prefer to buy the Denso. Its your car. Save your money and pay for original coils. In the long run they will out last the cheap brands.

    I didn't mean to sound to demanding but I'd prefer a better brand of coils. That's my opinion.
