Something wrong with it or are you just too ashamed to drive it?

After getting new rear abs sensors, fixing diff input seal flange, the driver headlight ignitor, the pass mirror ribbon decided to break internally.

I just recently repaired the ribbon due a mistake ordering the driver mirror motor. I made the mistake giving the mirror motor part number wrong so I have brand new driver side motor laying on my workbench. The passenger mirror cap also broke the inner tabs even with the careful removal. Ordering a new mirror cap and getting paint on it.

I'm just trying to limit the miles on the zhp now since I commute heavily now. I did drive it 200 miles two weekends ago. I haven't done any driving where I could test the LSD yet.
