My car starts modding itself in hot weather.
« on: July 07, 2005, 06:38:10 PM »
It's pretty cool. I'm out running errands and my MFD says '105' Sweet.
What's this? My driver side auto door lock is disabled. Nice. Ooops. It's disabled for everything. Hmm...nothing I can't deal with and fix when I have the time.

I'm at T-Bell getting some lunch and come out to see that my car likes making sure things match. Oh-ho! Curbage on my front wheel to match my back wheel. Neat.

Which brings me to my next point. Those new Crunchwraps are really good.

...I shoulda bought a Honda... :roll:  :lol:

Join the crowd man, I get to my car this morning to start to car to go to work.  Crank, and I hear grinding noise with the starter.  Shut car down, and try again.  NOTHING.  Starter just spins.

"Umm, thats odd, guess I wont be getting to work on time."

Take pops Avalanch (which I HATE btw) to work, get there a few minutes late.  Get home to check the Passat, and the car decides to spit out the lower starter bolt.  I hate these small things, granted I could fix it, but man its a hastle getting under my car being as low as I am, and dealing with all of the 125k miles worth of road grease and dirt.

Someone in a POS minivan put a big ass smedge/scratch in my Passat's driver door at the Fresh Fish Company on saturday...  I know the parking is tight there, so I figured some POS would get it and they did....

I am looking at buying a 1993-1995 Audi S4 for my city car, because of things like this.  When I have to go places where I know my car may get damaged I will take my old S4, plus it would be kinda cool to have a version of each S4.  I am thinging about buying the B7 RS4 when it gets here!  then I will have three!  woot!

is the Crunchwrap that thing that looks like a frizsby?
sounds intriguing but I wouldn't eat it unless I'm drunk at 2am.

Argh! I knew there was something new I should try last night.

Yup. that's the one. It's not as protable as they make it sound on TV, but it's better to go than anything else from T-Bell.  It'd be even better if they put that cool sauce in it that's in the Grilled Stuft Burritos.

I just paid an extra $0.70/mo. and got zero deductible on my windshield. I'll be getting a new won in a couple weeks :P
