after a few months you'll get used to the payment...
but yeah, don't do anything drastic until you're comfortable.

Don't have any pictures, but someone in my work parking garage (of course no camera) scraped the rear driver side door and the panel behind it. Took it to the shop and it's looking like about $2000 in damage. Mostly cosmetic and nothing major was damaged, but it's still super annoying.

Hoping to get the car back next Friday. Until then, I have a Cadillac XT5 rental.

Finally got around to cleaning her, even though it's supposed to rain all next week

Still my absolute dream car. Fun to drive, not too flashy. She needs tints, which is my next big thing for the time being. I bought her used, so the carwash swirls pre-date my ownership, but that's fine.

I think it's cute that Kurt's dream car is a Passat.

That's perfect!

Atleast Kurt has what he wants even if what he wants is modest!


No tint yet? How long have you had this car? FFS Kurt!


Spoiler
BTW... If you want more carwash swirls, I can help you...

Sexy bitch...
curious...why does your brake caliper just have "S" and no 4? Is it because they use them for various models?
and for the black, shoot that shit at dusk.
Use something like Wolfgang's deep gloss sealant...it will give it such a shine it'll kind of hide the swirls.
People used to ask if I had gotten the TL repainted when I'd first apply it.

I honestly have no idea why there is just an "S" and no 4. I don't know that they reuse them on other models

Sticking with the Audi brand, but a member of the Acua family! Awesome!


Like I've said a million times before... I drove a 2010 VW CC and loved it! If it weren't for the questable reliability I'd have one right now!


That 2.0T DCT combo is priceless! So much power for what it is!

The car looks lovely but you need to get it detailed by a professional asap. Those swirls are horrible!

I can't do it. It needs tints. All cars need tints.

How else do you expect to keep people from seeing your GameCube Nintendo?

That's the plan. They're getting installed Wednesday.

Any recommendation for percentages? I'm inclined to stick with legal front and 25 in the back.

New law is bullshit
I'd do 25 / 20

I had 10 / 5 on the TL when that was legal



I really liked 5, but I know you ain't bout that life

Well, if he's gonna be all Kurt about it...

I'm well aware of the law, but I still say 20. Or perhaps see if the shop will use the darker half of the 25 roll...
