Phokus Hey, got back and was super busy.
I went to Niagara Falls, ON then Toronto then Montreal then back to Boston!

Great news though, On a section of the trip I achieved 48.5MPG (hand calculated) all highway other than coming out of the rest stop with a gas station.

I'm dropping off my car at the body shop later today. I wont see my car for a while :( Oh well.. my friend left a 2011 WRX at my house while he's away...

People are assclowns so I guess I can't do much about it. Called my insurance company on that day and they said that I don't need a police report just that picture is good enough. Great! easy process It could have been worse I suppose. This should be fixed up and shiny'd up soon.
Best part is my car is filthy after the trip; the body shop I go to does a full detail on every thing! including the engine bay

I've also considered booby traps.

In fact when I take my car downtown Toronto its basically recording all the time.
I was recently looking for something like this. Hit me with a link?

Lately, I've had the urge to take matters into my own hands if it were to happen again - like bashing in their windshield. They might shoot me, but I feel like bending over and taking it is worse.

you definitely need renter's insurance. its usually insanely cheap ~100 bucks a year. Split 3 ways that seems like it would be worth it.

Or move, or buy an AK and sit out on your stoop a lot. I know what you mean about being sick of taking it anymore. Its why when we were kids old timers used to hate us.

misfire That sucks! Someone got my rear bumper a week ago. I have a feeling I know who did it. Karma is a biotch.
