Fixed window switches and got the corner bulb fixed. Before when I tried to one-touch them up, theyd go halfway up and then stop and go down about 2 inches. REALLY annoying having to fight those dumb things. Also fixed the door latch so now you dont have to engage in WW3 every time you want to enter the car

I paid a little less than three times that rent when I lived in NYC... Everything is relative.

I changed the non german style leaky battery in my wife's 325i to a german style one with a hole for the vent tube. Then I cleaned up all the corrosion, stupid cheap P.O....

425? You're lucky if you can find a place here that's a 2 bedroom under 900, and that before utilities and water
