It has been several years since my wife’s Lexus IS350 was properly cleaned, so a detail was certainly in order for this 11 year old vehicle. I had about 4 hours to do a detail, which ended up with quite satisfying results.
I found a pristine, low-mileage 1998 BMW E39 540i, but the deal didn’t go through even though I was first in line to buy the car. Apparently someone swooped in before my test drive appointment to buy the car. So I have to ask: Who gets the car first: the first buyer in line or the first buyer with cash-in-hand?
The coolant (or antifreeze) in a vehicle plays a significant part of the vehicle’s operation. It was about time for my 2003 Toyota 4Runner to have its coolant drained, flushed, and replaced. I’ve outlined the steps I took to do this and also provided an alternative way of replacing antifreeze that might be a bit easier to do.
The tailgate on my 4Runner keeps falling down on my head. I replaced them with aftermarket tailgate struts from eBay since the OEM parts are about 5 times the cost of aftermarket one. They are working wonderfully!
I found this Audi S4 (B5) that was going for half the going price. The seller told me he hasn’t run the car in a year or two, but I test drove and it appeared to be run fine. For some reason, the seller strongly urged me to have the car towed. I was a bit suspicious, but I couldn’t resist the deal and had the car towed back to my place… and so work on the car began.
