Got these when Amazon lowered the price to $17. Now $40. These are obviously not the Toshiba bulbous shaped originals so I will be comparing these to the originals I already had. We shall see.
yeah, from my understanding the toshiba ones have been out of production for a LONG LONG time, I just buy the Wagner versions, at the end of the day they are the Phillips bulbs but at a lower cost then the Phillips.
 
So far, it's a bust on these. They're no brighter than regular 9005 so not worth the extra expense. I put one original bulbous style on one side and the "new" straight version on the other and I can see the difference. I should try with a 9005 and see if there is a difference but likely there isn't.

Yeah, I've had the originals for a while. They've been in three trucks so far. I drive a lot at night and the extra light makes it better. I can't imagine why they would stop making them given the benefits and exact same wattage. John Deere also had them for a particular combine but went stupid with the price when people started buying them.

Replacements for the driving lights that I have mounted in place of my BU lights. These were overpriced when I originally installed the lights...now they are pretty cheap.

These things make a crappy job a little easier by freeing up one hand. They are worth the money and unlike some of the grease gun gimmicks that are out there....these actually work.

I NEED THIS! Not cheap though. $45 CAD on Amazon.ca. We're getting ripped off here because the $30USD translates to $37CAD. I saved it in my wish list and will keep an eye on it.

That truly is a rip off. Have you looked on ebay ? that's where I got mine shipped for $29. A while ago some Canadian members asked if they could have some stuff shipped to my house, which they did and saved some bucks doing it.
If any members from the Great White North want to do that, let me know, I'm about 15 miles south of the Peace Bridge crossing at Buffalo...Mike.

I should have had a new front transmission line but apparently the fast and free shipping with Ebay is not fast...I hope it turns up today because I need to get this leak fixed.
 
All good. I found the seller on eBay and getting it shipped to MyUsAddress and will pick it up later. Just $5 per package. I still don't get why stuff is almost always more expensive here, including snowmobiles that are made here.

Do you also pay more per lbs on Canadian bacon? :crackup: sorry I just couldn't hold that one in.

On topic bills, bills and more bills.
 
Have been fed up with having minerals precipitating out of suspension in my ice maker. Water tasted fine, but it's weird looking to have white flakes in my cup after the ice melts. Tried a better filter, no dice. Did some searching, and decided to add a pre-filter to the fridge. Found some reviews of people talking about this same problem, and came up with this one that seemed to make buyers happy. It's also rated as a 5 year filter, so won't have to bother with changing the 6 month one that's in the fridge. :biggrin:

Also got a stainless steel water line with some fittings. Haven't figured out where/how I want to mount it yet though.

Direct from GM, made in China, shipped from Korea!?!

Wheel centers for the wheels I picked up for the Caprice.

No pic but received a pair of seat belt pads to use on my work suspender straps. Without padding, hurts the shoulders. These are exactly what I needed.
 
The final component for the PC i'm building for my mom arrived yesterday and I did the assembly and installed windows on it last night, got a few things to button up but it's almost ready after like a month of waiting for a reasonably priced GT 1030 to come back in stock.

Cable company went total digital so I'm trying this for the garage TV, Hell !.. I'm already renting 3 boxes from them.:whiteflag:
Cable, I remember when I overpaid for garbage service cable companies, Now I use Philo for $16 month and it gives me Velocity and Discovery and the other channels I care about (NO Sports, News or Locals) and a 30 day unlimited DVR so I can watch shows on my schedule, it's like Playstation Vue but CHEAPER.
