    Plastic oil cartridge : Drain plug ?

    The Korean's out over engineered the Germans on this filter set up. Zero reasons to have all these parts on a filter and housing.

    I just installed the Quatrac Pro on my new car and I had the Quadtrac 5 on another car. They are great All Weather tires. I feel they are less expensive because they don't need a huge marketing budget. They can build their reputation on word of mouth. I believe the Pro model are all made in...

    New vehicle purchase, but build date 7/19

    I just bought a left over 2019 VW Golf Alltrack that has a 3/19 build date. The oil change service light was on because the car has been at the dealer for over a year. They reset the light but I changed the oil and filter when I got home.

    Rollback: Quaker State Ultimate Durability 5W30 Synthetic

    This price got me to step foot in a Wallyworld for the first time in three months. I ordered it online and picked it up at the orange tower of doom. It was my first time using the online pickup machine and it was real easy.

    2017 BMW 330i - Mineral Gray

    Those German brake pads sure make a mess. Buy some P&S Brake Buster for the wheels. <img src="" alt="[Linked Image from]" class="post-image" style="height:auto!important;max-width:100%!important;"/>

    Replace or keep

    These tires have a UTQG of 320 and reviews I read is that they last any where from 10K to 20K only. I decided to keep them on and probably replace them next winter.

    I bought a set of Barum"s back in 2006 and they were really good in the rain. I think they were made in Germany or France probably, at one of the Continental factories.
