Congrats and no hurry, the longer it takes, the less the replacement will cost. Or, maybe you decide there's something else you prefer. There are times I tell myself, man, not a single car we own...

I wonder if the day will ever come when we all can afford what is today a $3500 engine analyzer. Prolly cuz of the smartphone we think not much out of pretty slick free apps. But you go into industry...

I think a full refund is in order but that wouldn't make things whole. At least file a complaint with DMV. It's one thing when drunk uncles work on stuff because they aren't charging for the work. ...

So our cars would not go into any type of limp mode if overheated? I like the advice of putting the new radiator in, and driving for a while and observing. My guess is there is some tolerance for...

Yeah it has been my filter of choice going back to the early 2000's, on all of our cars except 1 that has a drop in cartridge. I use WIX for the air also, although I don't feel as if the air is as...

My car is the dirtiest in a long while. Between it raining a lot and being away for travel for almost 2 weeks, it hasn't seen the car wash even with the monthly subscription. Gonna take it now. ...

gotcha, the interesting this is the tire shop told me moisture gets in there normally. I noticed just a week ago when I went to check my PSI, water came out as I put my gauge on the valve stem. ...

Tire shops love the staggered setups because that's when they can legitimately do no work, and the mfgs love them too because they cut the warranty in half (how much sense does that make).

Given that the tire shop did it one time, and took maybe 20 min., and charged me $25, I figure that's better than having it dismounted, going home, coming back and having it remounted and balanced. ...

Kinda funny. Say you have brand new tires. You rotate at 7,500. Now you reach 15,000. You go to rotate again. A genius tells you, we won't do anything. All your tires are the same. No wonder Costco...

As far as oil goes, I DIY (simple) with whatever had the rebate, meaning Mobil 1 or Pennzoil Platinum or Ultra Platinum. Then I use a WIX XP filter. I bought a pack of new drain plug washers, but...

It's a daily driver. I always curb it as I do all cars--found the perfect long-term off airport parking, which is impossible. A brand new Audi S6 with temp tags took a spot in front of me--on the...

I would have to spend more time with a 330i likely when I get a loaner for my annual inspection. But I don't doubt that it places 3rd. When you take the latest greatest iPhone, and you compare it to...
