No surprises from me, watch-wise
April 16, 2018 08:25AM
But it is a happy day, because my trusty Accord clicked over 100k miles on this morning's commute. Mostly trouble-free. I had a couple of tire pressure sensors start leaking, and a rim leak due to a bit of corrosion of the alloy wheel. Needed new rear brake calipers last week, but that is not a lot of problems for 100,000 Chicagoland miles. Oil changes every 10k miles, as recommended by the onboard maintenance-minder. I put in a K&N air filter at the second air filter change, and it growls a bit louder now, above 3500 RPM. 2 cabin air filters. Gonna do coolant and brake fluid changes soon. The original spark plugs lasted the whole 100,000 miles. I've got new ones in now, they're $24 each iridium plugs. Thank goodness they last awhile!

The SNZF17J1 "Ghetto Sumo" is merrily squeaking away on my wrist. Thinking about it, I'd rather have a squeaky bracelet that is comfortable than a quiet one that pulls arm hair. Smile

My intent was to wear it on the bracelet until it stops the squeaking, but I have 4 NATO straps waiting for it (3 with blue in them) and I don't know if I'll be able to "put in the time."
