Bwahahahahahahaha. Oh my god. That totally explains the HELL out of DH's VW Beetle. And also that I absolutely detest that car. It sucks. And it's ten years newer than my Jeep, but has about a billion more things wrong with it. And is also made of plastic and Styrofoam. Seriously. STYROFOAM.

When people ask me about my car I tell them not to buy a VW unless you want to learn how to fix it, or you have the money to pay someone to fix it. Sometimes a lot!

In my first year of owning my car I learned how to fix quite a few things myself. Those that I couldn't fix myself, I had a club full of awesome guys who were more than happy to teach me how or fix it for beer as payment. Now I just hand Ryan the keys and tell him I'm taking his car

Just let me know about how much you want to pay (preshipping) and I can make an assortment up if you dont want to pick

(also let me know anything you do NOT want, scents you hate, alllergies, etc)

RHD and I were always convinced that there was something wrong with ours because they never threw CELs.

I adore my VW, and don't have plans of driving any other brand anytime soon, but they aren't cheap to fix if you don't want to do it yourself. Ryan is a VW tech and he always, always has work, both at work and on the side. So keep that in mind

This is the best advice anyone could possibly give. You will probably LOVE your VW, but be prepared. (Buy a warranty.)

Plowed mine into a guardrail and still no lights on the dash. My car is a champ. The only CEL mine has thrown was when I took my O2 spacer off.

My good news: I can get an FR-S at cost.

I found Vicky Cristina Barcelona on YouTube. Finding a movie I love on YouTube always puts me in a good mood, doesn't matter if it's 240 px and has Spanish subtitles.

Just ordered 5 nice pairs of underwear and a very nice new bra from Victoria's Secret thanks to a giftcard and the awesome sale they are having. WHOOT!

Now if Abrams eats any of these, I will disown him. Stupid dog.
