I never mess around on light snow/slush. Deep snow kills any momentum pretty easily. Until it doesn't smile.gif

One of you ballers should get this. It's a classic Mini with a Yamaha R1 motorcycle engine for $20k. Check out the videos in the listing, too.

You just said it, it looks good but not GREAT!

 

This facelift will not steal a lot of hearts.

This happened:





Glass is even on the driver's seat...


Dusting for prints.. which are going to end up being mine.

Kid with the GTR in my apartment got robbed too.

$500 deductible and a quote of $900 for the window, installation, and glass cleaning. Another $300 for the regulator.

At least the police showed up

Sorry mang, never fun getting broken into.

Since it's just a window and regulator I'd just do the job myself and save on the deductible cost. If you're not handy or don't have the time then I guess you'd have to pony up the $500...still sucks either way. I'd be pissed.

They opened up a Tesla showroom on Lincoln road. Man, these cars are REALLY nice. Anyone ever test drove one?
post #7704 of 14640
Wow, that sucks GF. I hope they find the people who did this. Did they get anything from the car?
post #7705 of 14640
Ended up dropping it off to get the window replaced. Quoted less than $350 and they were able to get me in within an hour and I'll have my car back by 3 PM. Pretty happy with that.

^Yeah, they stole my GPS, iPod, and iPod kit by ripping it out of the center console...

Fucking bastards. Now I gotta get the tint re-done which is going to be a hassle since I originally got a special tint from a shop in Boston.

I complained to the apartment's management and apparently more than 10 cars were vandalized and had items stolen from last night.

WTF.

TEN+ CARS.

Make sure the management starts increased surveillance ASAP. Car thieves iME are the stupidest fuck pond scum-IQ criminals. The last group of low life filth to burglarize my car (long time ago, still lived in an apt at the time as well) were caught because they came back to our garage the next night...I guess they left something behind that they wanted. A few of us saw them and called the cops...

Break ins blow, sorry to see you got hit. My friend's Jeep was torched in Allston over the summer, they told him "if he does it again, we'll definitely catch him," eight more cars got torched in the same neighborhood and they never caught anybody, as stupid as robbers/arsonists may be, a complacent police force can still drop the ball.

My car was broken into on the streets of Manhattan two years ago, after parking on the street for years. What a headache and hassle, and felt really victimized. I had nothing visible, but a GPS in the center console, they must have seen me put it away. Scratches on the paint and torn door panels, still had glass when I traded it in. Sucks.

HOnestly, the shit they stole from my car is only going to net them maybe $60 bucks, TOPS. The iPod is my old ass iPod that I got free with my macbook for college back in 2007.

The GPS is an old, slow-as-fuck Garmin that's 2 years old. The iPod Dice kit? Not sure, but not much seeing as they just yanked it out without all the proper cables. Fucking savages.

But the end cost to me? Jesus... I'm going to be out at LEAST a grand because of this and I haven't even done my Christmas shopping yet!

Sorry to hear GF, good thing you didn't have a V1 hardwired in there like mine.....
