Yes. Two years ago we had some bad ice and a driver in a late model 5 series was filmed on TV trying to drive on an icy street. He just sat there spinning his tires, overheated and caught fire.

Work insurance asks us to back into parking spaces - based on the theory there is less to pay attention to when backing into a parking space than when backing into traffic.

The used filter came off of the Frontier on a run with ST 5W30 with approx. 4800 miles on it. The virgin filter was the last one in my stash. It cost me less than two dollars at a KMart going out of business sale so there wasn't much tied up in it.

The other shops quoted a high price for a job they didn't want. $500 is a really good price, good enough to put up with the wheel cylinders I guess. Did you give them the go-ahead on the $315 front wheel hub? Some of these are a PITA due to being pr
