After ringing my insurers and being told it'll cost me another 200  a year if I declare alloys, I think I'll just stick with shitty looking wheel trims after all haha.

Dunno what it's like over there but over here insurance companies are cunts and will do anything to avoid paying out.

Aye, pretty sure all insurance companies operate like that. Take a look at the US health insurance system.

When ever health insurance is brought up it feels like I'm listening to anime without subtitles. As far as auto insurance goes i didnt have it for a few months because it was too high when i moved. I paid $94 full coverage in ohio and the lowest i was quoted for my lexus was $96 with basic and its a 95. This other place said they can get me insurance between $40-60 for whatever basic shit i need in AZ. I need my oil pan gaskets and some seals replaced first though.

Are those prices per month or per year?

Insurance here varies by zip code, driving history, car choice, credit score, background check, insurance history, bundle discounts, and more. No two people will have the same situation so comparing rates is nigh impossible.

I have had a couple sets of these: http://www.sears.com/dunlop-dun-direzza-dz101-tire-215-45r17-87w-sl/p-09558392000P on my is300. The inside wear sucks, not sure if its them specifically. Though, I am fairly certain because I had a couple sets on my jetta too with similar results. I have got around this and had, maybe, a set back to front and flipped the fronts (inside edge to outside edge), maybe 2 years ~30k?

Do you guys have any other suggestion on tires? I'm not dissatisfied, but might be stoked on something better.

Prodigal, apparently the Michelin pilot sport 3 a/s are really good. I'm about to switch the Bridgestone Potenza re11's for them. Mostly because he Michelins have a 70000km warranty while the bridge stones have nothing because they're classified as an auto cross tire.

Those were actually my other choice. ~$20 more/tire isn't a big deal.

Its always nice to fund a shop thats pretty welcoming. Im usually a little weirded out by approaching performance/specialty shops due to bad experiences with reputable shops. But this place was cool. Shop is busy but still was able to answer questions and wants to get the car on the lift thursday to see what needs to be done and see if what may need to be done can get.done differnetly to save me.money. but at this point i rrally wouldnt be mad if i had to drop $1400 on repairs.

Snagged this bitch on a whim today:





1970 F100 with F250 running gear, 8 lug all around, massive drums to match. Smooth running 302 w/ 4spd behind it. Patina for days.



Also, shaboom!

It would have been great to have parents, but it made BMX so much more hardcore and real not being able to buy anything new, ever.

lolz wut?


Opinions on most dependable/safe/easy to maintain car or wagon (also open to suggestions) under say $9,000? Would like it to be sort of roomy so would like to stay away from sub compact stuff. She has a 2002 honda accord coupe that's dookie right now and hates it.

Going to get my soon to be bride into something and we have the opportunity to buy outright because of some student loan fiasco with her culinary school. ~6k would be our own money.
