      Scrolling through this thread and great to see my favorite coffee already being plugged here :thumbup: . Currently have one of their Guatemalan roasts in my rotation.

      Good friends of mine bought a new 2014 in the same spec in 2013, and they’re about to cross the 100k mark.

      In all that time they’ve had no problems worth mentioning, and the first problem...

      “It’s that I already have one of these bad boys, or I’d have bought it myself! I mean, at this price, how could anyone resist?”

      I was at two local VW dealerships yesterday to help my neighbor purchase a new GTI. Both had modified their processes: you could go test drive on your own, much of the paperwork done on the sales...

      I was lucky I didn’t *own* it—a good friend of mine did. But joke was still on me when the ECU finally drowned when he was visiting, leaving me with a D2-sized lawn ornament for a few weeks [emoji23]...

      The previous owner took it in for cooling system issues on 8/27 and within the next couple days after that decided to trade it in. Yes, this car is definitely perfect [emoji23]

      But for real, like...

      Definitely glad I’m finding this out now. I just submitted the repair request to the seller: all electrical work (panel, some shoddy wiring), some stuff to have fixed under the warranty he has from...

      Famous last words [emoji23]. Turns out the seller didn’t have a great inspector back when he bought the house, because it’s *definitely* a Federal Pacific panel in there, and an undersized one (100...

      Vredestein is a Dutch tire brand, and being from there myself, I know a little about these tires (and the brand itself). (And I can read the Dutch reviews :laugh:)

      You’re spot on with the floors: prior to the current seller buying the house, it was a one owner house and they had red carpet installed on top of the hardwood. Seller removed the carpet, but didn’t...

      The economics of buying a house

      Thanks! The seller just put in that door last month, I’m not sure if I’d picked the same color but it’s better than what was there [emoji23]

      Thanks! The really big ones are healthy and seem well-trimmed, and they’re a reasonable distance away from the house (still, they’d do significant damage if they did fall…). Sewer has been addressed...

      What about the Mazda 3? I haven’t driven the latest generation, but it should be fun to drive, somewhat more interesting than a Corolla, and shouldn’t require any frequent dealer visits.
