I get it - Was talking to the So today about how angry the entire sales process of anything makes me lately - And the seeming no one wants to work for it - Oh tell me what you want this is it go away or take it meh - That's why I appreciate people doing the proper process of trying to value add to their own sale - its the retail manager in me :)
Reminds me of a consultant from a distant past who would add 1 hour to his invoices for "preparing and submitting invoice".

Ask me about HoboBlo franchise opportunities
Not a project but not worth its own thread - Get a new car for the company on 1st July - Got about 5k off retail with Tint - Mats - Cargo Mat included as we bought the Demo car with 2500kms on it - We were going to buy the Base model of the MAXX Sport but by the time we ordered it (6 week wait) - paid for Metallic Paint - Tinting etc there was less then $1500 in it t get the top spec model demo - Color Photographs like shit but is quite nice in RL.

Company finance is weird to get as well just saying :)

Why you buy lhd?
More like why did you buy one of them? Dreadful things… Did you get the gutless underwhelming petrol you need to rev the tits off to get anywhere, or the dodgy diesel that’s likes to fill it’s oil sump up with diesel?
Both of them have the same floppy sloppy handling though, but then it’s an suv so that’s expected I guess…

Do they not sell the 6 wagon anymore ? A vastly superior car in every single way….

My partner has a CX-3 and annoyingly it's pretty good. I wanted her to get a 3 (actually I wanted her to get a Focus but nvm). Drives nicely, handles well and has a bit of grunt. Is a manual though.

A 6 Wagon is a damn fine looking vehicle. Do like.

I feel I should point out that if it starts without throwing a code, it beats your cars.

The most recent focus in a wagon in a manual 3 cylinder is very decent bit of kit indeed.

The Mazda 2 based CX3 doesn't suffer the barge arse floppy syndrome as much as the CX5.

As someone who drives a white Toyota awd these days I was thinking nice rig to transport hobos.

My partner has a CX-7, FWD. Deadly pos handling wise. Build quality is nice. Engine is quite good. Spare part pricing is fucking rude.

It only does short trips for school runs, I’m about to install a Fumoto oil valve in the rear muffler to drain the water out before it needs its 4th muffler.

Just drill a hole in it - thats the factory solution for the rear muffler on the Alfa ;) A small hole a couple of mms wont let noise out, but it does drain the water.

Its common across all manufacturers, yours might already have one thats blocked?

Constantly clogs the weep hole, I was trying to be nice and responsible but might just go all uncle buck on it.
