Yeah Garman, they salt the hell out of the roads here, and I did not oil-guard or undercoat that car, it was a 2004 Grand Prix, tried spending as little as possible on it, but that bit me in the end. Avoiding monthly car payments allowed me to spend most of my disposable income on my “hobby”, but now I will have that payment. Luckily I have decent gear to get by with for now. Funny you mentioned BMW’s, the guy at the car lot steered me clear of the 2 they had on his lot, said they are maintenance nightmares...cost wise.
