Lol. Yeah, not the best analogy.I got mine back from the body shop and no more grey between the exhaust pipes. It looks awesome!! My wife's comment " I don't know why you spent money to have that done, you can't see it while you're driving". My reply: kinda like you getting your hair "done" every week huh? I happily made hot dogs for my supper knowing I was right. My dad's advice for (happy?) marriage. "Do you want to be happy or right?". I prefer a bit of both.
Roof crossbars? Every Escape I’ve driven has had them. Probably have over 100k miles in them. I guess I’m used to the noise. But then I might spend hours driving with a couple windows open sometimes. That’s loud.
