Looks like the perfect time to leave the car in the garage and knock out that steering wheel cover

I lied Mook Mook, I rollled 5k on my way home last night after all! I did my maths wrong.

also, all 4 tires were low when I was about 5 miles from home. checked them all this morning, all were 7-9 PSI low.

Got a letter with a crisp $1 bill inside from JD Powers for a survey on my GTI purchase experience. It took a little bit longer than I anticipated, and I'm DEFINATELY an outlier, as I knew EXACTLY which car I wanted (once I realized they sold the GTI in Cornflower Blue, I knew I was for me. There was no traditional car shopping that happened, it was all about finding one in stock, locally at the price I wanted to pay.

Went into the city over the weekend for the a graffiti mural festival, an artist I follow on IG/YT (Kiptoe) was in town for this, so we went and checked it out.
Then we went to Pequods for lunch and on the way back tried to find more murals. Only got 1 other good spot for pics.

First oil change at the dealership. I also mentioned squeaking from the sunroof that they determined was a loose panel/seat. The tech was trying to figure out what was loose and kept doing laps in the dealer parking lot to find it (which he did). Also, the new Taos can be had in Cornflower Blue as well.

i thought it was my sunroof the whole time, turns out it was not
My issue is the sunroof cause once I open it it’s gone. But my car is close to 30k miles and I’ve never cleaned or lubed the seals and my car roasts in the sun whenever I’m parked at work.

That you on orchard and galena road around 8:30 this morning? I saw some clown in a carbon steel gray gti with exhaust, black wheels, tinted tails, lowered etc driving like a jackass on my way home. Guy Almost got smoked by a garbage truck trying to fast and the furious around him.
