My biggest complaint is the dealer associations in various states won't let Tesla improve the car sales process. I don't understand why I need a dealer. Why can't I just go to a factory owned and run Chevy store to pick up a thew truck I ordered on

Porsche is way cooler than an Audi. I haven't owned one since the late 1970s and they were reasonably priced until everyone wanted a 911. I sat in one a few years ago and it felt real good .familiar.

Yep pretty standard from the morons that get $8 an hour to change oil. If the head was good you could try hitting it with an impact gun in reverse. Hopefully it comes back out with the threads in tact.

Eagle, they have a funnel on them and don't fall over in your truck bed. Those jerry cans are built for mounting on German military vehicles, so unless your on expedition they are kind of pointless. The Eagles you can throw in your bed, are prope

If you don't have a lot of stop & go or idling in your daily drive(s), you can get close to 40mpg in that Corolla without trying.

I would use a synthetic 5w30 and rest easy knowing it flows well at all temperatures encountered in PA. Pennzoil Ultra in my vote if you can find it.

Seems like most stars just have the same "collaborators" to do the orchestration and sand off the rough edges. Consequently every song sounds the same. I like my share of tunes (AJ's Drive for example) but I can't imagine spending hours
