I’m just off Roselle now, but the other side of Schaumburg just off 390z. Also made it home safely after banging out 900 miles today. Yay VW

I thought the tow wouldve been covered by Volkswagen no?


Dang man bummer though.

Geico was pretty expensive when i had them, didnt realize how much i was paying. Have you looked at other companies and bundles?

Last I recall, once your past 36k/3yr tow is not included.

So far geico is cheapest for us.

I’m officially moved down to flight school gents. Looks like there’s about a 3 month backup till I enter the pipeline unfortunately. All my furniture and bed and tv’s are still stuck in Maryland waiting for a driver to pick up the crate :/

Haha, out in the burbs yeah. The prices aren’t that great in the established neighborhoods close to downtown. Dallas is on an upswing market wise currently. Where we’re looking the prices are high. Good for resale, bad for deals. Near the lake. 15 min commute for the lady though.

Property taxes aren’t as low as I expected. Still half of what we would pay for the same house though. It does drive me nuts when you see a House was half the price it’s being offered for now just 4 years ago.

True, property taxes aren’t a ton lower, but the overall tax burden and costs are definitely lower. The no state income tax alone makes a big difference.

Yeah, the areas we’re looking at have appreciated quite a bit over the last few years. We’re probably at the tail end of that, but we’ll have the security of being in a higher demand area.
