Living is pretty alright but I haven't died yet.

I thought it was the law all mtbers must drive Tacomas

Frontier is the shit now.

I'd test drive an Impreza, good value.

LG is good.

Make sure the connections match what you need.  Some newer TVs are eliminating older style inputs/outputs.

Go and view the TV at the store, and try and watch different type of content.  4K TV may have a very good 4K picture but a mediocre HD/SD picture.

Has all the connections I need. Think I'll just buy it and return it if it sucks.

Have you checked out Visions or London Drugs? I've seen 65" 4K tv's for as low as $600 in flyer ads.

I've seen bigger TVs on for cheap but don't have the space.

that's too bad, but also what i was thinking.

interested in a Panasonic 42" plasma with a wall mount for $200?

Nah, thanks for the offer though.

^GF is a Subaru fan.  She's now onto her second Impreza wagon. Think she had an Outback wagon before. Parents had a Legacy.

Her '04 Impreza wagon is at the point where it needs a bunch of work done.  She picked up a new '19 Impreza wagon two weeks ago.  I was almost able to convince her to get a M3 AWD...

Anyway, have an '04 Impreza Outback Sport Wagon looking to unload for cheap.  Stock rims on WRG3s or HakR2s on steels or a set of Contis with 100km on them.  All 16" size tyres.

Ha, the '08 is actually my GF's car as well. Those new ones look decent.

Any Subaru people here? Bought an '08 2.5i auto 5dr Impreza in July for cheap. Had a bunch of issues right away, all pretty simple. Just rolled 160km, the head gaskets are visually OK,  didn't use any oil over a 5000km interval so I think it's good for awhile. 

I can see why people put up with the quirks though, I like the thing.

I buy from them often! Haven't let me down yet. Ebay had better options this time but I'm regretting it.

Almost bought my exhaust system from them.  Turned out that CarID had a better deal and super fast shipping in the US.

I didn't want to deal with sending my core back to Rockauto. All they had was reman pumps and I haven't had luck with reman parts.

Looked at them for the clutch, dmf and now the driveshaft but edgeautosport.com had a better clutch kit package and the oem dual mass fly wheel was unnecessary at 260,000+.

But my dealership sourced a used driveshaft for $300. Dont think I can beat that as I couldnt find an oem price online and other than can carbon drive shafts and 500+ hp rear axle's, no luck. But I have some more idea's now (lol).

My truck has a DMF as well, it's a throw away if the clutch burns up. $450 on Rockauto which is cheap.. 😲

Holy smokes eBay global shipping is slow. Ordered a P/S pump out of Florida 2.5 weeks ago. Took forever to get out of Kentucky, now its sitting in Ottawa because of the post strike. 

OEM pump is $370 US, same part # in Canada is $770 and change. Bunch of bullshit.
