Been considering a switch from my SE 2nd Gen to an iPhone 14. Close to the same size, but with that improved camera and 5G. But trading in my SE means I need to get an unlimited data plan even though we rarely even dent our current 8GB shared plan.

I appreciate that, thanks!

She looked a lot sadder when I picked her up. She had been sitting for years neglected. But I've really enjoyed being able to fix her up piece by piece. I'm not mechanically inclined, so I let the professionals do that. But anything cosmetic, interior or exterior, has been a lot of fun fixing/upgrading/replacing. I source the parts on eBay or Rock Auto and try to keep it OEM as much as possible. I would never do this with any of my BMWs, but hard to screw up with an old Chevy.

She needs some bodywork to make her 100% perfect, but all in due time. Although I have other cars, this has become my anxiety-free daily.

Here is photo from the day I bought her:

Since my insurance doesn't want to cover it.
A fraction of what the local pharmacies want:

Iíve been taking Prilosec for years (at GIís direction). Thatís really cheap. Does it come in bubble type packaging where you have to push each pill, or a bottle. Never seem to see it in a bottle.

Can't post a pic but these arrived today. Just ordered on Thursday from DTO. Unbelievably cheap 47.50 (normally $189) for the hard floor cleaner and 27.50 (norm $109) for the steam mop / cleaner. I'll use the steam cleaner on the car too. Just got done using both and am thrilled with how well they work! Sale ends in a few hours I think. Sadly I get packages almost weekly from DTO now, the Ryobi stuff is such a good deal when on blow out I can't help myself lol.

Hope you got the Harmon Kardon system, I will say that when you get it set up just right along with a good source for audio, its absolutely amazing. And I'm comparing that to the B&W system in my M850i...

We did it first time 6.5 years ago. Got our flight cancelled at 5:50 pm from Philadelphia, got rental and got to the hotel there at 4 am... Still had fun!
Took no chance this time, left home early on Thursday, driving down there for 10 hours. Got full experience this time with Zentrum tour instead of factory visit (had it last time). Drove to Washington DC and spent a night downtown visiting museums on Saturday. Plan to do it again in 6 years.

First time getting black wheels. That was exactly the thought process: compliment the black trim and have 2 color scheme with red calipers accents.

Adaptive suspension and steering are standard now for 40i. No, I did not get HK sound. I feel no need for a high end audio and happy with the standard one.
