I bought an unlimited CarFax account (you get 30 days) as we're finally serious about finding a family truckster and I want to be able to run VINs without begging.

Well, when you have an account, you're tempted to run VINs, especially of your former car(s).

My ex-330i has been resold again and is rapidly catching up with my M3 mileage-wise. But it's still in the area.

That was me.

I haven't been willing to take a day off of work to go down to the DC DMV to clear it up.

As I'm not planning on selling my car any time soon, it hasn't been time-critical.

However, that just reminded me that I haven't yet re-run the CarFax on to see if anything changed.

I like checking up on the cars that have left our stable. :) Kinda makes me sad, in a way.

Can I believe my eyes :yikes: Tom is going to buy a TRUCK????!!!! I thought he hated them with a passion. I figured he'd end up with some souped up Audi station wagon.

Yep -- I heard he won't even consider it unless it gets UNDER 10 mpg in the city. Gotta be at least 4WD (or even 5WD) for those severe DC winters.
