      Just spent $2600 on the Subi.

      Could have gotten out much cheaper but I couldn't resist a bunch of "while the engine is out..." maintenance.

      You quoted my post for this, not sure how it's related?

      I agree about having kids, if you do it you better be passionate about being a parent.
