Svend’s post today reminded me that I wanted to share having my old girl cleaned up. Back in February I decided to sell my S3 and and buy this old girl outright, to move a car payment off the family dole. So far the 2011 GS has been flawless aside from an intermittent TPS light from a tire pressure sensor that either…
Now that Game of Thrones is over, I thought it would be fun to review all the main characters and compare where they were when we first saw them to where they wound up after last Sunday night’s finale and see who actually won the game. As Cersei famously said to Ned Stark in the first season, “When you play the game…
My car ADD is still going strong and, while I truly intended on keeping my Lexus indefinitely, I’ve started to think that I should’ve considered trucks when I picked it up, specifically a similar-age Frontier or Tacoma, with V6 power. The Taco is, of course, a bit more expensive, but the Frontier should come right…
Think I might be a victim of identity theft. Fucking awesome.
I’ve just been made aware that there are some really great lease specials on new Aston Martins!
Stuttgart - Porsche takes the next step into digitalization with the new QR Code Logo. It will replace the original Porsche Crest that was created in 1952 and will be first introduced with the Taycan.
I’m selling a few parts from the S3 online and have listed them in some of the model or part specific Facebook groups I’ve been a part of.
I bought an Autocheck subscription when looking for my GS and went with the 25 reports for 21 days deal. Tomorrow is when my subscription expires and I have (I think) about 20 reports remaining.
Any Oppos have any idea of how to go about finding this? I’ve got a few chips and bits of rash on the wheels on the GS that would all but disappear with a good touchup, but I’m having trouble finding a paint code for the wheels both on the car or Google.
For the week between selling my S3 and picking up the GS, I needed a rental car. Budget was kind enough to offer me a free upgrade, so I took temporary possession of a 2019 Hyundai Elantra with about 900 miles on the clock.
Flew out to Nashville and picked up the GS from a small dealer last Saturday. Flight went out at 6am and I got back home at around 8pm. It was a long day. Good news is that the GS ran like a champ the entire way. Bad news was that given the lousy stretch of I-40 running through Knoxville, I ended up with a bubble in…
Received the results of the PPI I requested at the local Lexus store where I’m picking up my new-to-me 2011 GS350, and there were a few things they pointed out, one of which is a bit worrisome.
Agreement in principle with a dealer out of state on a 2011 GS350 in Smokey Granite Mica. About 100k on the clock and 12k out the door. Inspection scheduled at the local Lexus dealer on Monday. Looks identical to the one below:
Interested to hear Oppo’s take on this. For reference, I’ve been considering reducing debt and the first place to start would be moving on from my S3. Love the car, not the payment :).
As a new dad, I’ve started taking a bit of a harder look at my family’s budget. We aren’t close to being tight or anything, but at the same time increased monthly consumables costs coupled with daycare costs and reduced income by way of health insurance for the baby and a dependent care savings account are making…
Mildly excited for the cars released today - the Porsche 911 Carrera S (992) and 1993 Porsche 968 Turbo S. I’ll be looking forward to hooning these tonight when I get home.
Like most of you, I’ve been waiting to see what Toyota actually does with the reincarnation of the Supra nameplate and, with the final unveiling, I’m actually rather pleased.
There’s a Smart ForTwo dealer display for sale on BaT. I think you should make it yours :)
