My daily driver is an 02 911. It's now sitting in an indie shop because it was running rough and smoking on start up. The tech thinks he's got it narrowed down to a bad injector and the mass airflow sensor. Since he's got the fuel rail off he recommended replacing the other 2 injectors on that side since they're only $70./piece. So far I'm into it for about $1800. Guess I won't be updating my irons this year

Gotta expect those costs with older 911. Expensive but worth it.

Got bad news yesterday. My Orthopedic Surgeon who I wanted for my knee replacement is retiring this month.
I guess after my shoulders he was sick of me.
I put off my knee replacement due to a planned trip to CT for Gkids HS graduation and all the Spring Sports for all 4 Gkids. Obviously none of this happened due to the COVID mess.
Start over....

Random here we go.
I've been staying away until golf gets kinds back to normal for us.
One of those it's me not you deals lol.
I've played 5 rounds this year. 3 of those in last 3 weeks. I know probably selfish and childish not to participate until I could actually play, but Tazz is back [emoji1][emoji1]

Ouch!  I've been eyeing some of the 2016 Used Audi's (S8, A8, S6 or the Q7).  I'm just not sure with the higher costs associated with German car maintenance  Current daily driver is a Mercedes C320 4matic and stuff on it just keeps breaking to the point I'm ready to get rid of it.  Previously, I drove a Lexus and it was bullet proof...except when a car pulls out in front of you ☹️.  A Porsche 911 is my dream car.  New though even the base car is right almost 90k🤦‍♂️

This is the first major repair on the 911 - it's a 2002. Up to this point it's only needed tires and oil changes.

FYI my wife drives a 2015 MB 350 suv. Other than tires, oil changes and rear brakes it hasn't needed anything and it has 90,000 miles.

My Orthopedic surgeon retire AFTER he did mine and my wife's replacements.  I think he paid off his boat... or 911.

Reminiscent of my nuclear chemistry class assignments back in the '60s.  Ahhh, the good ole days back when men were men, and plutonium was king.  😆

Preaching to the choir.
This is the truth. I changed the usual weekly Monday morning meeting to Tuesday mornings. No one, including me were ready for the Monday Smackdown. The Shop Team Leaders loved it, office Weenies hated it.
Of course the Monday Night Football guys had a slight hangover problem.

I bought a used VW Bug for $350.

I'd love to find one at that price nowadays. You can get a rust bucket for about $3,000.

I'm envious😁. I need my haircut bad..

Mine got bad enough that I had my daughter cut my hair last week. She did a shockingly good job for a first effort. I was going to do it myself and just buzz everything with a #4, but my wife had stern objections to that plan.

I used to have a 2000 Audi A6 twin turbo 2.7 (with 6 speed manual). I loved, loved, loved that car, but it seemed like every time it went to the shop it was an $800 bill.

back in the day I had a 1985 5000 Turbo.  I loved the car till the electrical issues started.  hit a bump and the sun roof would open, left turn signal and radio would play......   I swear it was haunted.  Finally had to sell as no one could figure out what was happening.

That's the reason I've never leased an Audi through work, even though I've always wanted to. Working for VW has it's perks, but with service every 6000 miles an Audi can get pricy for my tastes. With them, the first service is free then the second is $600. They sure are pretty, though.

I had an Infiniti G37 before my new car and the ONLY reason I got it was because of the 10 year 100k warranty. Had a few issues over the years that were 100% covered thank God. Got rid of it right after warranty was up this year. Cars are tough these days especially when ya can’t just lift it in the driveway for a quick fix all the electronics

Sounds like it had a Lucas electrical system - more common in British cars. Little know fact Joseph Lucas the namesake of Lucas Electrical was credited for inventing the 'short circuit' 😂

My current car is a '16 Hyundai Genesis Coupe. I bought it used in 2017 and 60k of the 100k powertrain warranty was transferable, so I have that going for me. So far it has been bullet-proof. <knocking on wood>
