Fucked up and got a ticket 78 in a 55 construction zone today. Got home and bought a Uniden R3 off Amazon. I'm pissed at myself for not already buying it. This is going to be a very expensive ticket. Haven't had one since I think 2009.

I wouldn't care about it except it's, of course, directly in my line of sight so it's always there if I focus on the windshield instead of ahead of me...


I just worry about the resin turning yellow or otherwise aging poorly and making the problem worse...
I got safelite to fill a chip I got in my windshield the same week I bought the car. It made the chip 75% less visible and it won't spread. It cost a lot for what it is. At the time I only had a $250 comprehensive deductible so I ate the $130 fill cost. It's still perfectly clear resin. Hasn't changed state since Dec 2016.

Keep in mind: I got it done the next day since if you let it sit, it can get dirt in it. So your results may not be as good as mine if it's been there that long.

I'm going to order headlights that state they are for halogen models only and see what happens. 60 days free returns so it's worth giving it a shot I guess. Might blow up or might get decent blacked out, clear corner lights for a good price

Treating her to some goodies. Today is Amazon's annual Prime day sale that ends at midnight. I'm cheap but couldn't pass these deals up, lol.

I believe you need to be a Prime member, but I have a link for a free 30-day trial to bypass that if you're not already a member: https://amzn.to/2Lnf2Ql

Huge jugs of Castrol 5W-30 synthetic oil for only $22.14 at checkout! Ordered 3 so I'm set on oil changes for a while.
https://amzn.to/2LkpEiA

Awesome dash cam that's only $69 'til midnight, on sale from $150.
https://amzn.to/2LcUs51

Complete 16pc Chemical Guys car wash kit with foam canon for only $64, usually $100.
https://amzn.to/2NUnRiZ

70pc magnetic screwdriver kit for only $17. Good for all the torx bits on these damn cars.
https://amzn.to/2zOVGyU

I have a similar tool set and bring it everywhere. Has deep-well sockets, torx bits, etc. 192 pieces can fix just about anything on these cars for $148 at checkout.
https://amzn.to/2NZUQCa

My buddy bought this pressure washer for $200 a few months ago and said it kicks ass. It's half off right now.
https://amzn.to/2mpLTWz

12pc ratcheting wrench set for only $89 at checkout. These are convenient as hell.
https://amzn.to/2NWv164

Adjustable gear wrench set for $97 at checkout. Not a necessity, but will be nice to have at this price.

I'm not sure how to link my dad's facebook video ahaha. He was the only smart one to take a quick video. I was just impressed we even got to the car to this point. At the current moment we will have to make the jets smaller on the carbs, running really rich at the moment.

In case you're the observant type, that's a CTS Turbo intercooler for my dad's GTI in the background. That'll be my next project...I have to take everything forward of the radiator off of his car to install it

Nothing special but would fulfill my immediate needs of clear corner and blacked out housing. Would be awesome if they worked out completely and I will hang onto them for a bit. I figured if they work, I'll keep them on while I dabble in a retrofit of my oem.

edit- I see you have a 128i, so those would actually work perfectly for you I believe?

VW service position, assume it. You're probably already familiar but service position on a VW is real quick and easy.

Ugh that diff looks so beautiful. I need one..

At least we'll have mid-80's and dry weather for the rest of the week into the weekend :
