    Finally found the right ski bag for non-folding rear seat sedans (PN 72608215262) after having had an eBay alert for almost 3 years.

    Ran me 40€ shipped to France (vs $409 at ECS, which is completely ridiculous). Will pick it up when I go there for work next month.

    Failed inspection today. Got 48h to replace front brake lines, one control arm, trunk handle assembly, and to solder off a crack in my floor. Gotta love it!

    Woof. That's rough. I will say that I think it's a good idea in the world to have some safety requirements for vehicles; Oregon basically only checks emissions, and that's only for the Portland area (maybe Medford too?). But it's a complicated issue; people rely on their cars for transportation, and maintaining a car to certain specifications can be prohibitively expensive. Add on the 48 hour time frame and it can be a serious burden for some people.

    In my case it's just because I'm changing provinces so it's a whole ordeal. We don't have any yearly inspections at all, but I agree the 48h timeframe is crazy. Most people who aren't handy probably end up paying a fortune for this last minute work.

    Curbside front brake job @ 447,925 km while swapping in summers. Perks of living in the city.

    Used OEM Zimmermann rotors + Jurid pads.
