Gack?!! per wheel? Hozy Shet! In fuzzy print is says "front or rear". And I just noticed the "starts at" before $299.95. The picture didn't look right, but my brain couldn't get past $300 for 2 rotors and pads. $300 would easily do all 4 in parts.

Oh, the dealer wants 350 a corner? We can do that for $275. You'd make a killing.

At least my grand daughters can all drive standard transmission cars. Their Dad and I made sure of that. They do their own oil changes too.
Depending on the vehicle it has a chance of a third pedal. Just it will normally control the e-brake, not the transmission.

Average Joes? I thought thats what jiffy lube, meineke, and the like were for? Fluid changes, brakes, tire rotations, wiper blades, light bulbs, etc.

Those places are everywhere.

It might have been less like $325 basically they wanted $650-700 per axle. I got quite a bit out of them after that because they couldn't fix my AC even after about 5 visits. It was nice getting brand new cars to test drive for a weekend for the price of because they tried to jew me over.

I worked at a bowling alley where a drunk did that and knocked a sprinkler head off, spent all night cleaning up the flood.

Convicted TRAITOR Bradley Manning announced he/she/it will run for US Senate in Maryland.

Chelsea Manning Will Run for the U.S. Senate in Maryland | Time

Quote:
By Associated Press January 13, 2018

(NORTH BETHESDA, Md.) — Chelsea Manning will run for the U.S. Senate in Maryland.

The transgender former Army officer [not an officer but a shit-bag private] who was convicted of leaking classified documents filed her statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission on Thursday.

The Washington Post reported Saturday that Manning will challenge Democrat Ben Cardin. He has served two terms and is an overwhelming favorite to win.

In Mayland if a felon has completed their sentence, they get their voting rights back and can run for office.

Returned to fail thread...

Bringing old Dennis back to the fail thread.

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman was arrested in Southern California Saturday night on suspicion of driving under the influence, police said.

Newport Beach Police spokeswoman Lt. Rachel Johnson said officers stopped Rodman for a traffic violation shortly after 11 p.m. Johnson said Rodman failed a field sobriety test and submitted to a Breathalyzer, on which he blew more than the .08 legal limit.

Johnson told City News Service that Rodman, 56, was cooperative with the officers and was released from jail Saturday morning.
