I thought about commenting on the Mulholland Drive post and providing some insight as a civil engineer regarding traffic control for construction as well as construction funding/speed . . . and then realized that it would be a complete waste of my time. Read more

This is my periodic thought exercise to evaluate if I am ready to move to something different. If my GTI got totaled, I most likely would get another GTI, although I would have to consider options like a Kia Stinger GT with the twin turbo or maybe an M2, but the GTI fits well. Maybe a Golf R.

This is almost exactly what I was going to write. I think I went two or three weeks after buying the Outback before thinking about replacing it, and I like it.

I bought the special hatch-pop struts when I bought my GTI, and had the car reprogrammed to pop the hatch when the fob button is pressed, not just unlock it. Then I found that for the struts to be strong enough to push out the hatch, it meant that it was more difficult to close, and I was getting my hand very dirty as Read more

Based on my recent experience, I recommend Carvana over Carmax to get more money from the car. 14% more, in my case, and the process went smoothly. If you want to hit the easy button.

Heated up at the end and sold for $13,900, with some commenting that this was a “steal”.

I hope so. You are an inspiration to us all. Even if some, like me, don't take it so seriously, it's good to see cleaning done right.
