But these turned out half decent considering I suck at pictures and angles and lighting.
For the first time in about a month. After I aired up the flat tire and jumped the poor thing.
Earlier in the week I found what looked to be an Ethernet cable shoved into my headliner above the mirror. I can’t for the life of me figure out what it could be for. Tonight while I was hard wiring my dash cam and had the A-pillar trim out I decided to pull the wire and whatever the hell else that is it’s attatched…
This thing is still awesome. I should’ve given VW a chance sooner.
I’m glad the yellow fog tint looks as good as I imagined it did when I impulse bought the sheets from Lamin-X at 1 in the morning a week or so ago.
I bought the car two weeks ago and have already accumulated over 1,000 miles on it. I figured I’d put together some observations. As a TL;DR: This thing is great.
Car still has temp tags on it and I haven’t gotten all the paperwork for it yet and I have an appointment at the dealer already.
I’ve owned the GTI less than 48 hours and I’ve put almost 300 miles on it going no place in particular. I just giggle the entire time I drive it.
My truck was showing the starting signs of major engine problems (gfy active fuel management and mid-2000s GM for that matter) so I traded it in and bought a hatchback. A turbocharged, manual, German hatchback.
The 2019 Silverado, that is. I actually had more of a negative reaction when the 2014 was introduced than this model.
After literal years of trying to convince my grandma to get a smaller car, she finally traded in her ‘02 Ram last night on something much nicer, quieter, more fuel efficient, and just plain more fitting for her.
I’m glad it crossed my mind that Crutchfield might be having a Black Friday sale and I should go look at speakers, because they had Infinity Reference speakers 50% off. Those are the same speakers I had in my S10 that I liked so much, so I order a couple sets of 6 1/2” 2-ways for my Silverado to replace the slowly…
Figured this would make a decent Sunday night discussion topic. What’s your favorite little detail on your car? Maybe it’s a design detail, a little badge, an interior feature, just something small you like about your car.
Rotated the tires on my dad’s truck, plus checking the fluids because the water and power steering pumps are seeping and I’m going to start driving it for a while. 35 inch mud tires are heaaavy, especially when you’re doing it on jackstands in the garage.
I just realized its been over a year since the Safari drove away and never came back. I wonder if the years of neglected maintenance after my mom got the Vue ever caught up to it.
It makes bumps look like jumps.
The horns on late model Grand Prixs share a connector and a bracket. So I now have two sets of Grand Prix horns behind my front bumper aimed at the ground. It echos. Shoddy Instagram video below filler image.
I’m armed with a socket set and list of cars that use the same connector as my truck. Top priority goes to the Buicks, since they always seem to have louder horns than anything else. The Cobalt is a last resort since they have more wimpy horns.
I was happy to oblige after we washed it.
