I saw an argento FRS on the Bronx River Parkway a few weeks ago. Was that you Cgrey?
Nope! Haven't been on that parkway in a while, did drive up and down the hutch last week though.

Just noticed the "Parking Mode" function. Super cool! I think I might get this one too!
It depends on the card size but in parking mode it will only record when it senses movement or shock so it won't fill the card or run your battery down.

I think that might have been me. Was it by the junction boulevard exit?

You park on the street in flushing!?!? You're not talking about Main Street flushing right? that's just crazy... I parked out by st. marks last night and realized I had a tight spot for two. I decided to park right in the middle to take up both parking spots. You never know if an SUV is gonna try to fit in to a tight spot and they wouldn't even know they hit you. So I can see a lot of douchebag parking coming from me in the near future.

My previous car, 2012 scion tc was keyed the week before Christmas in a mall parking lot (parked far away) I don't even think it was really an attention grabber. I assumed because "it's a scion". I didn't do anything to grab attention on my part. Just figured haters were around :/ ( nice long door to front fender key)

So still weary about having my frs for these kinds of idiots which unfortunately have struck cgreys car for no apparent reason

That just gets more attention. I'd rather take the risk of someone being careless over someone intentionally damaging my car for parking like an idiot.

So there may be an added benefit of rebadging it Toyota after all!

Wow, this thread makes me sad. I can understand a bad apple running across your car every now and again but for this to be an ongoing occurrence is sickening. It's amazing how people could have such little respect for other people's property.

People are jealous assholes. My mom bought a CLS AMG merc. When she parcked at her company, she heard an employee of hers (who didn't know who the car belonged to) say the she would enjoy keying that car because "if some rich a$$hole can afford a car like this, they can afford a new paint job, it'll serve them right".

People used to look up to those who achieved the american dream, now they want to bring them back down. Crab basket syndrome is affecting a lot of people...

The travesty is that he was arrested in the first place, while the thief was given a sweetheart plea deal to testify against the storeowner he was robbing.

Believe me: I'm up on the news.

Toronto should not be held up as the pinnacle of justice and good policing.
Just ask the peaceful protestors who got kettled during the G20, and ask the Black Bloc anarchists who rampaged through downtown Toronto without any police in sight.

The Canadian justice system seems to come down hardest on those who pose the least threat.
