Well That's Yer Problem Right There! – Headlight Fluid Edition

headlight fluid email
SEE? It's dripping right out!

Poor Kristen. All she wanted was an unrealistically low estimate for some front-end damage (probably caused by inattention a la mascara application), so she posted an ad on craigslist for all to see. What she got in return was a healthy dose of Hooniverse-approved BS. That being said, bully for her for not buying it. See the rest of the thread here.
Thanks to Brian for the tip!

  1. I strongly suspect that by 2015, the Germans will find a way to engineer fluid-filled headlights.
    Of course, they will not have headlight fluid pumps (too easy). They will be sealed units that can only be serviced by some weird specialty tool at the dealership at a cost of $120/hr. The fluid will cost $45/liter.
    The automotive internet will be full of commenters/forum jockeys arguing over whether the improved optics in the new 6Xdrive43i Hybrid Dynamics over the Chrysler GP Cruiser's "old school" HIDs are really that much better. Invariably someone will be called a douche and someone will be called a mouth-breathing midwestern pig fucker.
    12 years after these models are introduced, the aftermarket will figure out you can make the specialty tool using a funnel and a cake icing nozzle and that corn syrup mixed with ATF is a perfectly viable replacement fluid. Independent German specialist mechanics named Klaus will disagree.

      Who knew the internet had Cliffs Notes?

    2. I think you just distilled the entire internet auto world into a single 7 sentence diatribe. Bonus points for "6Xdrive43i Hybrid Dynamics" – which is as you well know only a couple of characters away from being an actual BMW model name.

  2. On my first car the muffler bearing was going out. It made this aweful racket, but the car still seemed to perform OK. Since I was a poor college student I couldn't afford to fix it, and I figured it would be OK. We didn't have the internets back then, so I couldn't easily research the issue. Well, on my way back to school for the 2nd semester of my freshman year the entire back end of the car just vaporized…along with all my clothes.
    If only the internets had been around then to warn me.

    1. That's why I keep a bottle of STP Muffler Lube n' Spark Plug Degausser in my trunk at all times (also, it's good for cleaning the carbon scoring off your turbo encabulator!). Vaporization is not a laughing matter!

    2. I'm actually missing a muffler bearing right now, but as long as the muffler doesn't get shoved to the left it's okay. (Trouble is, there's only one hanger bearing my muffler these days. Dunno where the other one went.)

  3. Kinda like OBGWTFBBQ
    The inclusion of extra more-or-less meaningless letters is sort of an admission that the acronym is silly, overused, or a big jumble of letters.

    1. Actually, just looked it up:
      The "z" was originally a mistake while attempting to hit the shift key with the left hand, and type "OMG"

    Thank you its no doubt automated spam is a huge problem clouding blog posts. Its important to separate well meaning commenter’s with a website from those who did not even look at the material offered. I need to do this on a golf blog I own this will be a big help. I love the blog engine platform.
