Much Excite

Much Excite

Really counting down the days.  If that damn CX-3 is recovered in the next 3-4 days, we’re fucked.

We've Seen the Light

We've Seen the Light

We picked out a CX-3 replacement today. New Mazda3 Sport GT is SO NICE. But, $32K (CAD) is far to much for us. We then looked at Subaru Imprezas and found a nice lease return with 1500 miles for $21K (CAD), but goddamn those are shitty cars.

We then test drove a VW Golf Sportwagon 4Motion and wow. I don’t like VW, but I have to admit...its really nice. And wagons rule.

So, if all goes as...

Thou Shalt Not Covet

Thou Shalt Not Covet

I was walking down my street today on my way to the Claims Kia (a name which everyone I know now uses for my car) when I passed by a new 2019 Forte in red.

“The new Forte is pretty nice” I said to myself as I walked past.

I stopped dead in my tracks. “Did that have a 6 speed manual?” I thought to myself. I backtracked and looked. Yes, yes it did.

“Huh, pretty nice. Wait....” I pressed my face...

Necessary Car Shopping with COFL

Necessary Car Shopping with COFL

So, it’s been nearly a week. We have some replacements in mind, what does Oppo think? Input on the Impreza or Golf Spert wagoon?

The Front Runners:

New Mazda 3 hatch in this blue. Yum yum. Pros: SO NICE | Cons: Most Expensive

2018 Mazda 3 GT Sport in Soul Red. Pros: Fully loaded, new. | Cons: Ugly, no AWD.

2018 Mazda CX-3 GT in Soul Red. Pros: Didn’t we own one of these? | Cons: Easy to...

Life in Corporations

Life in Corporations

I work for a large corporation, like a lot of you I am sure.

This isn’t car related, but corporate stuff, much like the news these days, makes me feel like I am living in a universe devoid of logic and sense.

This morning I was invited to a course on time management that was 4 HOURS LONG.

Volvo Oppo - School me

Volvo Oppo - School me

I know, I know, I’ve knocked Volvo a lot. But I do really like them. Can you school me on the V60 & XC60's? Looking at maybe around 30,000 miles.

What should I be looking out for or avoiding?

One of the Worst Parts of Car Shopping

One of the Worst Parts of Car Shopping

The absolutely idiotic mistakes made on autotrader by dealers listing their stock. Way to guarantee I’ll never come in. Whether it is wrong trim, wrong drivetrain, wrong transmission or just wrong everything.

Watch Someone Steal Our CX-3

Watch Someone Steal Our CX-3

I’m having breakfast as my wife heads off to the gym and I get this text.

I go outside and.. no CX-3. I check my Nest history and there is a “Person” notification at 3:45am. I click it and sure enough watch someone drive away in our CX-3. This is my wife’s car mostly, but I drive it on weekends for shopping/errands.

Action starts at 20 seconds

Fuck.

Fuck.

This is our CX-3 leaving our driveway earlier this morning. I didn’t think I would ever be a victim of auto theft.

And I freshly washed/detailed it last night.
