Nah, I'm exaggerating the situation I didn't realize how cheap they were. Tischer has it for $12, I'm sure its under $30 at the dealership. I might consider taping it up to get me out to the dealership though.

A complete Mango Maintenance Makeover from my local Indy (though it was already in good shape), new headliner, new windshield & flat beam wiper blades, had it detailed in & out. Just waiting for a new 25167515261 gearshift assembly to arrive as the current one has quite a bit of play in it. Photo imminent.

Removed one fog light, and took the back playing off to get some moisture out, worked perfect.

Got it back from the dealer. . . used warranty came through (AUL) ... replaced front left and right axles. cost was $1,9xx.xx (can't remember exact number) and I got away with a $100.00 deductible.

Also they did front rotors and pads, that obviously was not covered.

I used to use rain x or Bosch marathon. Then I switched to icons. They worked great for the first month and now two months later they are crap.
