It was the opposite for me when I went out to my buddies house in Loves Park IL (close to Rockford), while I lived in Chicago. We would go do quick errands and he would drive 15-20 miles, but we would get there real fast "Thought you said it was around the corner!"

Just got buyers extension request, looks like closing attempt #2 will be next Friday. Sucks parking out in the street Inlaws offered me a spot inside the garage, once they clean it out. But then I have to move cars from the driveway to get anywhere, not sure if worth the hassle.

Damn son, damn. For the longest time, my commute has been less than 10 miles. At the moment it's like 8 miles, but it takes anywhere from 30-50 minutes. Why my GTI has low miles, compared to others, I'm just about to hit 40k. Although with the new house, that will change soon.

Yeah, no affordable housing and not a good neighborhood where i work doe... Going out of the GR area makes it affordable and more quiet lol. I'm about to roll over 100k!! currently at 98500 or something like that.

I have a motiv power bleeder. I guess that's old fashioned?

No I don't have the rebuild parts yet. I wasn't anticipating needing to drive the car this soon so I took the brakes apart about a month ago. Now I need to put em back on and fill it with some crappy fluid just to drive for a day and then re build em and put the expensive SRF in.

I grew up in Rockford so it's familiar area. There's a racetrack down the street, and she actually wants to go along when I can afford to go lol. There is a small pub in town and a chinese place. 10 minute drive to Rockford where there's more stuff and like 25-30 from GR.

Was saying pedal presser is the old fashioned way haha. I need to get SRF when I get new pads (this summer hopefully). Can't decide what direction to go for brakes on my car. I want BBK because I'm maxing the fuck out of my stock brakes and stoptech pads on track.
