      I'm in the same boat as the OP. Never wanted a minivan but kids happen. My budget is similar to yours.

      Been researching for a while now, looking to buy before the wifey pops out #3 at the end of...

      Since you have kids and pets check out the VOC and formaldehyde emissions from wood floors.

      I went with the LVP too. So far so good and EASY to install. No tools required except to cut (can use a...

      My wife and mom think my 98 e39 is pretty cool, they can't tell that it's 18 years old by looking at it, so you can indeed impress women with these old cars. I got a lot of favorable comments when I...

      I went with a quad cab Ram, 4 door.

      If I remember right the suicide door versions weren't as good in terms of crashworthiness. I've been happy with the configuration, it has plenty of room for...

      The only bad thing about an LSD is when you are backing up with a stickshift, it wants to stall at lower rpms if you are turning.Straight back is no problem.

      My truck has a limited slip. It's great in the winter. I never add weight and sometimes don't need 4wd in the snow. I've noticed that non lsd vehicles will slide out a lot easier on corners as when...

      My 36yo wife makes good money and works where a lot of people have nice new cars. Luckily for me she doesn't care about having new cars and drives my 06 Golf TDi happily. It's in really good shape...

      I use Fluid Film. I bought a 12 yo truck with zero rust that the prior owner had sprayed every year - no rust. I decided to continue the tradition. Btw, I had an 11 yo truck (same make, similar...

      We kept the same cars for the first kid. 2 VW Golfs for DDing, DSM for me for a fun car, and my single cab pickup for work. It is amazing how much room a rearward facing car seat takes up in a...

      I have the Pela and it's ok, but a lot of pumping. It's been pretty handy for a lot of other things though. The parts press-fit on, so you have to hold the pump mechanism down as you pump it,...

      When I mow, I stripe the lawn, but when I mulch I run around the perimeter and move the leaves towards the center. Then I run over them multiple times until they get chopped up into tiny pieces.

      I am the owner of a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 and a 2004 Dodge Ram 2500.

      The 2500 has more towing capacity and is more heavy duty etc, but the 1500 feels like a Ferrari in comparison. I wouldn't...

      I get about 11mpg in my quad cab american truck. I also have a car because driving a truck sucks, especially the HD versions. I use the car to get the family around, the truck is for work 99% of...

      I used to rake a long time ago. It sucked.

      Then I got a leaf blower, a Stihl BR550 (big and powerful), and it made the job a lot quicker, but it was still a lot of work.

      A couple of years ago I...

      I stopped working on other peoples cars a long time ago. It's a thankless way to use up all your free time keeping their non maintained junkers on the road.

      I don't mind giving advice for free...

      There were approx 3,000 quantum synchros sold in the US. They are fantastic cars, I own one although it has been off the road for more than a few years now. It's the best VW I've ever had. There...

      I was originally looking at something like this and even picked up two radiators from the junkyard for test fitting. I think I like the Callaway solution though, makes the AC hookups easier. ...

      Britishrocco - good for you, I guess the long nose of the mk2 gives you a bit more room.

      big_hot_tamale - I did remove the battery tray so I do have room there. I'd think it would need some...
