So instead of the $8000 transmission the dealer said I needed, the locally run repair place thinks I need a new $10 clip as the squeak was just a loose pipe due to a broken clip. Even if they end up being wrong this seems with trying and they can give me a new transmission for $1700. I think I am done with the dealer.

Another reason that I lease. It's either covered or I turn in the car.

I would get charged out the ass on a lease for going way over the mileage allotment and for what my dogs would do to it by riding in it all the time.

I think leases really only work for people in very specific conditions, i.e. they are putting a ton of mileage on a car for business, etc. in a very short window. Otherwise, they are generally considered far less economical than outright buying the automobile.

I've also seen people lease knowing it's not a great deal, but they have a ton of money and don't care, so they much prefer having a like-new car every 1-2 years or so, even if it costs them more over the long run.

It always release from the same dealer, and they always waive the mileage. I've never paid any charges when I turned in a car.

The citizens of St Louis voted no to giving billionaires $60M in public funding for an MLS stadium. A small victory for the No Free Stadiums alliance.

The reporter would have had a much bigger story if he told the guy to stay in the car. The Captain never abandons his ship.
"We’ll be comfortable adding one (starter),” he said. “We’ll be comfortable adding nobody if it’s just not there. We don’t feel we are driven to force it. If we can add one that makes sense for us, that’s great. If we can add two that make sense … then we do that.”
Opie Taylor. In a decisive moment.

Unless it's an Italian Captain of an Italian cruise ship.

One of the most satisfying things to me is perfectly backing into a parking space, especially in a parking garage. Yesterday I had the opportunity to do it twice in different locations and I just fucking nailed it both times, precisely splitting the white lines with equal distance on each side of the BMW. Both times on the first try, exactly perpendicular to the back wall.

The second time, a limousine driver sat and watched me do it, and came up to me after, just to say how impressed he was.
Get it?

Do you have to wear one of those lame valet hats, or does Print Works let you wear something from home?
