    Keep checking links (like fatwallet.com) - those deals come back pretty frequently.

    Is it OK for me to post this?

    I just bought an A/C compressor (which I didn't really need), an A/C condenser, a new master cylinder and new front struts for 750.00! Delivery no charge and no sales tax from buyautoparts.com. The Honda tech that installed the parts could not believe the price or the quality. I had been quoted 2100.00 for the parts alone from an Indy Shop.

    Saved 800.00 on the labor charges too.

    Gee, you messed up. You could have spammed us with their affiliate link and gotten an 8% commission on anyone's orders who clicked on your link.

    Birddog fees like that tell me you paid 8% too much. :D

    Well, I do try to play by the rules here and I knew better than to post a link.

    This company is out of San Diego and receives five star reviews constantly.

    I don't know if you mean the subscription or the Techron... O'Reilly regularly has the Techron Fuel System Cleaner buy one get one.

    I have owned a lot of cars with fuel injection and I have never, once had a clogged injector nor have I ever used any kind of an additive.

    Have I just been lucky or what?

    The last time I checked, O'Reillys was doing this for the small jug of Techron (buy one get one). Doing the math, I found it was cheaper per ounce to just buy the larger jug at WalMart. Or, better yet, buy the 6 pack at Sam's Club. The stuff doesn't go bad.

    @isellhondas , oh, most links are just fine except those obvious ones where people are just posting to line their own pockets.

    Mostly I wonder if people will ever catch on that buying from a site that offers a kickback for a referral really means that the company could just lower their price and save us all from the game playing. Birddog fees are pretty common in the car biz. And if I go to buy a car why should I have to pay more than the guy with, say, the USAA membership, or a Costco deal? Just cut out the middlemen and give me the lowest price up front....

    Interesting. If I thought I would fit in that thing, I might sign up for a weekend test. Of course, I couldn't go very far over the weekend, so I supposed it would be pointless.

    Just did...after having got the wife a new Audi A3 last night, I'm liking it so much that I might just move up a bit sooner than I thought even though my 2014 model is just 1 year old. It's nice and all but wasn't my first choice and now I'm getting a bit bored shall we say. I want more lux and should've gone that route to start with...looking back, that Lexus 200CTh was pretty sweet with the right amount of lux and a hybrid to boot. Not sure I want to wait another four years until the bumper to bumper ends.

    @stever, Thanks! I just downloaded it. It might be a while before I read it, considering the unread book queue. :)

    LOL, @ray80, I read 'em on my wife's iPad Kindle app. I guess there's a free app for your Windows 8 desktop too, but I haven't tried it.

    Takes me a while to read 'em too - when I can pry the tablet out of her hands, I usually wind up playing pinball instead.

    Looks like it costs $4.79 at the local O'Reilly's so you can buy a can, get the rebate and profit.

    This may be worth looking into:

    Verison has a Roadside Assistance app - $3 a month. A reddit poster says it's good for ten mile tows, battery charges, tire changes, etc. And it's good for up to 10 cars, including cars you ride in with others.
