Car Talk 5: The Coronaball Rally

Car Talk 5: The Coronaball Rally

Who gave you the number ? Also didn’t you buy it for 34? Nada seems way off A dealership with a vehicle I was considering (and may consider if they still have it once this is over). I bought it for $35500 + tax/reg. Original MSRP is $45790 :like: :mahman: another vehicle purchase during Coronadoom ...

Just for shits and giggles, I did get a trade number put on the Trailcock this week. $25k.

KBB clean trade is $30219 and NADA clean trade is $33475 for reference.

$5-8k impact on trade values due to the coronavirus.
Who gave you the number ?

Plastic fantastic finally done ?
I met the buyer when he was first looking at it 1/2 to New Orleans. On the way back the A/C wasn't working as well, it reeked of oil, developed some new squeaks, I was quite happy to pass it on.
Ah Gotchya. So just the E30 left as a fun car ?

DFD Happy Hour

I also realized that I should have asked Max which mouse to buy. I ended up with a G502 for $33, seems a little excessive with so many extra buttons but it was cheap and reviewed well. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07PHLBBQR/ref=ya_aw_od_pi?ie=UTF8&psc=1 If you’re into pro gaming almost no better...

20 MPG highway on 93 :jimp:

The equivalent of 15 MPG on 87 octane at least where I live.

Pickup trucks get better mileage.
