      Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

      I went by the yard to get a couple last things out of the A3 and spotted the Passat we actually hit a couple cars away from our A3. You can see it in the background...

      Pictures are of the right car. Maybe the insurance card was out dated. I'll bow to TCL's wisdom that it was a Jetta. Headed to the tow yard today to grab a few missed odds and ends. Will double...

      Dunno why everyone is saying Jetta. The insurance card says 2012 Passat. A VIN search says 2012 Passat 2.5. Y'all need to brush up on your VW identification skills :P

      That's the plan. The pain isn't bad, but it's stiff and by the end of the day all the muscles up there are exhausted from holding up my dome.




      While I agree in principle, what should she have...
    5. Mrs. Figurefive Does It Again: Is It Totaled Edition

      So last April I wrote about my wife's wreck when an elderly woman turned in front of her. We ended up with a 2012 Audi A3 out of that, and well, lightning struck again last night.

      We were headed...

      Thanks all. I gave the new pan a decent wipe down inside and cleaned all the residue off the bottom of the block. The new pan is on. I'm giving it the full 24 hours for the Permatex to cure, though...
    7. New oil pan: what cleaning/prep needed?

      So, I somehow ended up with a hole in my oil pan. Long story short: water pump seized which shredded the serpentine belt. Had the car towed to the dealer. They found the hole in the oil pan. Pretty...

      Well, there's no oil or obvious residue in the area I saw my car sitting after the tow truck dropped it off.

      The water pump has already been installed. The pump itself was $112. The rest of the...

      I'm fully prepared to do the pan myself. The pump is a different matter. In theory you're supposed to remove the bumper cover and pull out the support to get at everything - not something I'd like to...

      Waiting to hear back. Probably too late to make that determination, but I'm going to go there and have a look at the area I saw my car sitting as I left the dealer in the shuttle.

      I agree. The water pump I sort of understand as they are likely quoting the labor by the book which I believe would have you pull of the bumper and put the front end into service position and remove...

      Actually, Cooke gave Weber a bit of spear to the gut first. That precipitated the ensuing stick play which then led to the mutual cross checks. Cooke went high and caught Weber in the face - Hulk...

      Dealer said they found the hole when the put the car on the lift to do the water pump. Have not spoken to the mechanic or the flatbed driver yet.



      Before the oil pan it was going to be ~$1000...
    15. Yet Another He Said/She Said-WWTCLD: Towing Company v. Dealership Edition

      So, Sunday evening I was driving down the interstate on the way home from my daughter's hockey practice (she's six and says when she grows up she wants to be an enforcer :laugh:). I heard a squeal...

      I guess he never heard the expression, "Don't poke the bear in the zoo." Angry Weber=Scary Weber.

      As our girls have grown we've transitioned to Recaro Performance Sport seats, but we still use one Britax Diplomat for our 3 1/2 year-old. When purchased a couple years ago it was the shallowest...
