day 2371 – sunroof motor

the mechanic returned my car with the body fixed as good as new, but told me my sunroof motor is broken. the replacement part alone from bmw will cost almost nine hundred dollars, but i’m going with the used motor route. i get my car back while waiting for the part to be shipped over. even though i don’t plan on keeping this car for too much longer, i still need to fix it to get a better selling price

day 2365 – sunroof motor

i got a courtesy car from my autobody shop so they could fix both my hit and run, and the malfunctioning sunroof. the mechanic took my sunroof apart and found that my motor had snapped. i’m hoping they can source out a second hand motor so it would cost me over a grand. in the meantime, i’m driving a downgraded corolla around which feels way different than shadow

day 2348 – sunroof issues

sunroof has been working fine all along, all of the sudden it stopped working and now i can’t close it. what concerns me is it’s stuck in the tilt position isn’t susceptible to rain or snow. would prefer not to fix it with the dealership so i better get it fixed before my service next week. in the meantime, i’m driving with it taped up which makes a lot of noise at high speeds. all this is making a debt in my financial journey

day 2333 – hit and runned

shitty coming out of the gym after a workout to find your car was hit and runned. i can’t believe steve nash doesn’t have any security cameras outside in their parking lot. they’re going to resort to tim horton’s camera from across and hoping it’s angled to see more of the parking lot. i sure hope i find this criminal so not only do i not have to pay deductible, but i can also report this is icbc as a criminal offense

day 1722 – petrol prices

img_20200130_2323045355337486565170273.jpgit takes over ninety to fill up my shadow. the price to pay for one tank of gasoline is already way too high and there’s talk that it’s on the rise. i love my car and the flexibility of going to places anytime. there’s no way i’d give up driving, but doesn’t mean i’ll stop complaining about the high vancouver oil price. i don’t look forward to paying triple digits for on tank of gas

day 1226 – car ironing

imageimg_20200204_2142034165295790209916393.jpgthinking about car tires all day because of expected snowfall in the city and the new tire regulations up sea to sky highway. good thing both problems are resolved. one, by stacking some plates in my trunk to the add weight to my car. it might not be much, but should still make it more grounded and a bit less susceptible to skidding. the second, confirmed that my mom’s car tire meets the regulations to get up whistler

day 1098 – two series

dsc_9738.jpgwelcoming my brother’s two series to the family. after saying goodbye to his mazda rx8 more than a month ago, i finally got a good close up view of his new car since he brought it home. the blue exterior is alright, but the┬áspanking new five spoke rims look really nice. looking at it reminds me that i need to change my car tires and rims after the summer season
