Sorry to post 4, but I have to show this: he was disappointed it looked so... "defective", he said. He had to get a new one.

I had to get my car checked by the authorities. That's due after 5 years of ownership - well, as they're well behind, it's about 6 for me. I got that Model S in May 2015, so indeed 6 yrs.

They check whatever is relevant for safety, such as brakes and suspension, but also rust (none here, aluminum), the exhaust and catalysator (none here...). Check if there is any play where it shouldn't be. If it keeps track and runs straight on. Light. Whatever comes to their mind.

After 170'000 km, I knew before the check, that the suspension, upper links both front and rear, left and right, had worn out. So I had these 4 links / arms replaced before today's appointment.

Everything went well. No major issue, and it is good to go for another 2 years now. Unless I decide to sell it ;). Ah well, OK, tire pressure sensors are dead. I will have to have these replaced, but won't have to show up again for that single point.

That's always a lottery, somehow. If you get a guy that's gotten up with his wrong foot, has a bad day... he absolutely WILL find a thing to make you come and pay again...

K is for KINDNESS

A couple of weeks ago I dropped my FTZ adaptor and scuffed up the metal ring. It wouldn't attach to my lenses properly. I put out a notice on the cafe that I would like to buy a replacement and wondered if anyone had one they would like to sell. A very kind forum member contacted me that he was purchasing a new Z camera and would be happy to buy the FTZ along with his camera for the extra $100. He would then sell the FTZ to me for the cost of the adaptor and the shipping. It was such a kind gesture and saved me quite a bit of money. The FTZ arrived from him today. I am so grateful for all the kind forum members here. This particular person had nothing to gain from this transaction. It took him extra time to correspond with me and mail the item. I am very impressed!!

Have heard about those inspections. Sadly, a "LOT" of vehicles in Tennessee would not make it out the exit.

Thanks, Ed, for hosting. I thought that I'd not be able to toss in a snap, but better late than never. Here are the "new Kids on the block", or at least in my backyard.

Trying again . . .

Thanks for hosting Ed! I got a few shots in early, but between negotiating price, loan application, home inspection, and preparing to sell our house, I’ve had no free time. :(
