Can't you just reduce your coverage / increase your deductible until it becomes affordable?
all ready at state min coverage and highest deductible.

Obviously I don't know anything about your prior run ins with the law, but I will agree that 1) the justice system is broken and 2) if you don't stick up for yourself people will take full advantage of you

With that said showing a little bit of respect will get you much further in life then going around with a chip on your shoulder. I'm sure you're smart enough to figure out whether walking into a courtroom with the attitude of "idgaf about you (the judge) or what you think of me" will help or hurt you

Good luck with the current situation. If you've been thinking about moving to a new zip code, now might be the time to do it... could save you a lot of $ and headache
I learned a long time ago to avoid putting myself in front of those upholding the law, they don't give a rats ass about any of us. Those assholes dont deserve my respect because they didnt care to listen to what I was telling them was the truth and said that I was in fact lying. News flash about me, I never lie, cheat or steal... ever. Yea, that wound they carved in my life is deep, and I will never forgive them for it, or what they did.

I appreciate the good wishes.

Installed an arm fmic and bmp View attachment 2668487.5 headlights. Everything went smoothly right up until it was time to put the tow hook license plate bracket on….and I used too much force and the damn thing snapped…$&@/;- now i have to figure out how to get it off. Not going to be easy on account of my Neanderthal self over torquing it. At least the fmic and headlights work.
I've been trying to see what it looks like with the brights on as well. How different is the temperature between the two bulbs?

Yes I was looking around, all the other major companies are higher than Geico, the smaller companies declined to cover it.
That's insane... have you tried USAA? I have them, I pay around $260 a month for the 20 GTI a 22 SQ5 including insurance for some high value items at home. I have shopped around an no one can come even close to them. I moved from Geico to USAA in 2005, Geico wanted $400 a month for a 2005 GLI, USAA quoted $135...

Wow, we tried to move because of a slight increase and couldn't even get our numbers matched. Our kid is 11, so I have a few more years before she needs to be added.

USAA declined to cover me, even though I am a Vet.

I actually had the NW rep walk me through every app capability to ensure it matched USAA's app functionality...I thought for sure I was missing something, but I think you do pay for the name a little bit

that is whack.....although my dad, 25+ year Army vet and spotless driving record, got ONE ticket 10 mph over and USAA wanted to drop him after 40 years with USAA...he had to talk to a senior manager to be like "wtf"? Suddenly they back tracked.

Yea I pitched a fit with them because I know they would be cheaper for me. Sent them my DD214 and everything, talked to some Senior Manager and asked him why my service to the military was not good enough for them to insure my vehicles. He was at a loss for for words and basically just didnt know what to say to me.

Also considering using the oil change warranty, since I never have before. 20L of liquid moly lol

Not sure if it’s worth shipping back, but I’ve also got a pile of hardware and some spark plugs as well.

Also noticed the first little tiny evidence of a water pump leak at the ripe ol age of just under 128k miles.

Still haven’t bothered to install my rear wiper delete, but did swap o rings on my VTT breather cap since it wasn’t as snug as it should be. Thicker o ring they supplied as a option worked perfectly so I guess the threads wore in a bit with age.
