Wreckers must be selling parts like that to body shops or something. I have been calling them for over two years. I think some of them know me on a first name basis, LOL.

Dealerships down south that sell at discount prices (College Hills, Majestic Honda, H & A, etc.), are the only alternatives left. Close to 100 bucks per side, plus shipping. Still, better than the $150.00+ they want to charge up here.

The fog light still works, even though there's water sloshing around in there.

Something like this - G마켓 - [G마켓 특가]위더스 멀티책상 1260/친환경 가구 책상/의자...

Looking at places to redecorate my room, and now everything seems overpriced compared to when I lived in Korea.

EDIT: If not, any styles similar? This is the exact same table I had in Korea, and I liked how the framing contrasted with the wood. Looking on the internet, seems like everywhere locally has only full wooden desks.
How about metal and glass?

Just called a bunch of kal tire locations and they only do it for free if you've bought the tire from them
Any negotiating strategies to make them do it for free?
$25 for 1 puncture seems pretty bad considering my tires that came from the dealer probably only costs $120

Might as well get new wheels and tires

Don't expect it for free...$25 is standard, and they do it properly.

They do free jobs sometimes out of good will and PR, and it's not a policy. Just go in when they're not busy, be nice, and maybe ask for some tire prices while you're waiting.

You should ask inv4zn, how much it costs to change a $10 oil seal. Then say $25 is bad.

Point is, labour is labour - it doesn't matter what the tire costs.

Sorry what I meant to say is paying $25 is a pretty bad way to spend money IN MY SITUATION atm, since my $120 OE tire probably has less than 40% tread it on it (might last another 10k kms idk). $25 is pretty reasonable otherwise, but also take into account tire life, how much it costs for new etc etc. Plus most tire shops (kal tire, discount tire, etc.) will do it for free if you've bought it from them.

Anyways thanks guys

Yeah, but assuming all your tires have 40% tread on them, you'll have to replace two tires..because if you only replace one, your car will drive like ass.

Factor in environmental levies/recycling, taxes, and mounting/balancing, and now you're comparing $25 vs $300.

That being said, it's winter now, so it may be prudent to replace them.

where could I purchase a good quality barbell or dumbbell handlesfor a relatively small to decent price? I do not require weights, just the barbell itself and the clamps that lock on to the side of the weights.

Thanks in advance

Costco I believe does it. Otherwise London Drugs still does that, but at a pretty hefty price. Photo Expert in Delta and Lens and Shutter would be camera stores which do it. I've had very good experiences dealing with PE (not with your particular request, though) so give them a call and see if they can work out a good price assuming you're doing a ton.

Each Mall usually has that one store that cuts keys, sells lighters, flasks etc that should have them. I'm tapping into my Highschool memories with butaine or zippo lighters.

Also those stores that sells bongs etc usually have them. Downtown has some, Puff on Main st should but can't confirm etc
