If you like cars and dogs and some pretty heavy emotional exploitation, have to recommend "The Art of Racing in the Rain." My asshole teen teed it up for family movie night just to watch both his parents cry.

good movie!

The book is very good too. The movie had a bit of help from Turner Motorsport, a very successful privateer American BMW team, and also a great place to buy parts.

allegedly not a good place to buy parts anymore after its acquisition by ECS, according to a vocal group of ex-customers. Although I’ve bought a few things from recently and it went very smoothly - including a return/exchange from me buying the wrong part

I've had good luck with ECS too (and FCP, Pelican, BavAuto when they were around ...)

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Who doesn't have a card that covers their rentals with "walk away" coverage?

I've heard the same about ECS and in my personal experience they are the worst. I kept seeing bad feedback about ECS on the forums but never had an issue. Then I had several orders go wrong over a short period. One return went great. The others took months to resolve and dozens of phone calls. One order was for all of $17 and I almost gave up but eventually contacted my CC out of spite for resolution. The day BOA credited my account, the ECS refund came through almost to the minute.

FCP is the balls and incidentally Turner started in Amesbury, MA, a town over from me.

Having read the book I am avoiding that movie. I hate crying and I am an easy person to make cry with media. Heck, I cry at Subaru commercials

I think I am about average when it comes to crying at movies, but after reading this book back when it came out, seeing the movie was a big "nope" for me.

To be fair it is a good book. But like many good books I cannot necessarily recommend it to make anyone have a good time.
