As I posted up a couple weeks ago, we bought my wife a new car from out of state. It was a 2017 model and was a factory demonstrator for an area Kia representative, never privately titled, under 16k miles when we bought it.
After much help from fellow Oppos about the process of totaling a car and then working with the insurance company on a settlement, we’ve finally settled and have found a replacement for her poor 2012 Rogue.
Three weeks (!) ago, I posted asking you guys to educate me on the process of totaling out a car. Lots of great insight, so thank you all for that.
Kinja hates me and won’t let me upload or link pictures, so here’s a URL, lol:
A couple weeks ago I complained that Forza 7 wasn’t very good. Thanks to the awesomeness of fellow Oppos, many of my problems were correctable within various menu options. Now, I have another complaint, but am not sure how to correct it.
My wife was rear-ended in her Nissan Rogue last week by a young girl (supposedly not texting) in a Camry. The Camry definitely looked like toast and had to be pushed from the scene, but the Rogue was damaged, but driveable. My wife took it to a bodyshop that day who went ahead and provided a quote for repairs of…
Full disclosure: Turn 10 wanted me to review this game so badly, they got me hooked on Forza 6 and FH3, so I paid my own money to Wally World for a pre-ordered copy. I received my copy of the Ultimate Edition on Friday night and spent a little bit of time playing it this weekend.
Would love to post a picture, but since Kinja hates me, I can’t. Let me try:
Posted up on Friday that I’m currently kicking around some ideas for something a little more practical, and was considering stuff at multiple price points. My wife and I took some time out on Saturday to look at a few examples of the cars on the list, with the Golf R being the favorite of the day.
Starting to kick around the idea of selling/trading my BRZ again, because reasons and just trying to consider what might better suit me for a vehicle now, at various pricepoints. Cheaper always better, obviously, but going up to $30k or so is pretty easily doable, too. That got me thinking about what might be a good…
A guy on one of my Facebook car groups has listed this MR2 for sale. Overall, it doesn’t look too bad, but definitely needs some love, but I think his price of $4750 reflects that.
Calling all Oppo homeowners – interested in your opinions. Within the next six months, my wife and I will be buying our first home together. We live in the righteously cheap state of North Carolina, so you can buy a lot of house for your dollar. Cost obviously escalates for more desirable neighborhoods and…
Nissan President Sovereign was up for grabs by Montu Motors at a No Reserve auction. Initial bids were low, then shot from $5000 to $15000, with nobody else to bid again.
My wife really started to get onboard with my idea about getting something a little more practical that I posted about last week, so I started doing a bit more research than trolling AutoTrader and Cars.com and took both a DSG and manual GTI for a ride on Saturday at my local dealer.
Greetings fellow Oppos, I come to you seeking advice once more. I apologize in advance that this is going to be a wall of text post, because for whatever reason Kinja doesn’t allow me to upload or link pictures any longer (using Chrome Version 49.0.2623.87 m if anybody has any ideas), and I want to give you a complete…
The quickest and most direct route from my home to my office goes through a sort of industrial area with hoards of those giant dump trucks. For the most part, they’re trundling along just fine, but this morning one of them tried to kill me.
PSA for friendly Opponauts - Amazon will be offering Prime for $79 tomorrow to celebrate the launch of The Grand Tour.
Probably a stupid question, but what’s the old saying? There’s no stupid questions, just stupid people? LOL.
Walking through the parking lot at work I spotted a C-class of this generation this morning and it struck me that it’s just such a great design. I’ve always liked the W204, but even now nearly 10 years old, it’s a great design in my oppo-pinion. Clean, crisp lines, classic shape, no extraneous design and nice wheel…
Went to Miami for a wedding over the weekend and rented a Mustang from Budget. Looked just like this one:
