Glad to hear you're alright for the most part.

Apologies if you've answered this 100 times but what dashcam was that?

So.. Do I continue my OM617 into 244 plan and find another 245 or slap my turbo motor in the 244 and get rid of the Merc?

As much as I'd love to see the diesel swap in the 244, the turbo motor may be more reasonable and less frustrating.

Just sayin, I'd buy the 300TDT from you...

Would you actually buy a hole-y 300TD that literally has stuff growing in the carpet?

:( goddamn I dunno what I'd do in a situation like that.... Glad you're ok! There's always other cars. Be sure to look at all the insurance posts on here to get the upper edge on the game. **** like this is exactly why I have a dash cam, too.

So Camry girl didn't lie about hitting me, but she claimed that she successfully pulled out and then got hit by the Honda.

Dashcam FTW.

Can a mechanical speedo be used with a later M46 or do I have to swap to electric?

So apparently State Parm thinks that my car is owned by a guy named Carl. They asked for the bill of sale to prove otherwise.

I lost it..

How the hell is vehicle ownership determined then? Just a bill of sale? What's stopping anybody from falsifying a document that cannot be verified by any means?

Lol I dunno.

Anyway, I got an estimated value of the car. 2 grand. Told em to frig off and sent them the receipts for everything I've bought for the car.

In other car news, my rental Elantra hit 8008 miles the other day.
