      Anyway, back to the current subject at hand, the Golf R. So I took a picture of it parked beside a SQ5 and realized it looks like a tiny SUV like the Q1 (if that existed.)



      Also snapped a nice shot of it at a pit stop outside the city.

      CUV are jacked up station wagons and the small CUV are jacked up hatchbacks. People pay premiums to get jacked up of the same car.

      Yeah, you can never get too OT in a Hawc thread. The GolfR is his daddy mobile. Next up, stroller fitment discussion.

      Actually....

      Looking for a reco for a good foldable stroller for short trips involving the car. We have a huge Bugaboo Buffalo for trips from the house, but looking for something easy to pack up in car.

      Have already made up a permanent little emergency diaper bag/unexpected mess kit for if we have a little incident in car that gets neatly tucked away in trunk.

      Getting my VW OEM pop-in rear sunshades this afternoon too. Will post pictures of that soon.

      Phil & Ted's "Dot" stroller. It's a full-featured high-end stroller, but it folds small enough to fit through an airport X-ray machine. It is also mobile and rugged enough to use for hiking and/or jogging.

      We used it for our first, and we plan on using it as our main stroller for our second:

      $100+ for labour on an oil change??

      UppaBaby Cruz. Fits in my 8P A3 sportback with room to spare, tons of storage, and as stylish as a stroller needs to/can be.

      Remove "short trips" from your stroller criteria. Assume there will be times you use it for hours at a time across every terrain and environmental condition you can imagine.
      Gentlemen, you had my curiosity. But now you have my attention.

      Or just use a papoose(sp?). My mom used one with me and my little brother and sister. Most of her sisters also used them. They take up almost no space and young children seem to prefer them. Plus you are not getting in the way of other people as much.

      I figured they charge an hour as a default for the mechanic to pull it in, check all the fluids, brake pads, etc. They charge at least 150/hr in my experience... so yeah? Suffice to say I've never paid for an oil change on the cayman

      Well, that's not just an oil change now is it?

      Definitely. We have 3 strollers. A big jogging unit, a tandem double, and an umbrella. We almost exclusively use the umbrella stroller.

      you can argue the semantics all you want - when you go into the dealer for an oil change, you pay 200+ and you "get" more than literally just the oil being changed. feel free to take your porsche in to the dealer and convince them you only want to pay for just the oil getting swapped. Then come back here and let us know how much that costs

      That may be the norm for Porsche owners, but the point stands that the $250 quoted is not simply for an oil+filter change.

      So I bought and installed the VW OEM Pop-In sun shades today.

      It's a 3-piece set for the 3 rear windows. It's about $240CDN. Really well made. Worth the money I think. But I may end up only using the shade where the baby seat goes. We'll see.

      Little tricky figuring out the instructions, but then super simple doing the install once I knew how the clips positioned and where.

      Very, very neat and tidy solution from VW. Quite impressed with the perfect fit and finish.

      They do. That's the big advantage over stick on window sunshades.

      It's extremely well engineered. The fit points are very minimal and precise.

      In other exciting news, they just resurfaced River between Gerrard and Bayview. It's right near my home and I take it everyday on the drive too and from work. It's a nice decreasing radius, slightly off caber turn that is a good daily challenge. Thrilled to see it all smoothed out.

      Question, does baby smooth asphalt, or slightly rough asphalt provide more grip in a car on regular street tires when dry?

      I'm gonna use this term from now on. The daily challenges are what make it all worth it.
