Spotted you on 144 St and Fraser Highway.
what color is it..
what exactly is wrong with it?
Hi. I'm new here. My wife's 2006 Mazda3 hatchback (AUTO - 168k) has a damaged engine. It runs but it needs to be repaired or replaced. I am trying to decide if I should just get rid of it (send it to the wrecker) or try to sell as-is for parts.  Its not work paying someone to fix it and I don't have the time to work on it myself but I know there are lots of guys / gals who like to work on their cars who may want it.  I also don't have the time to rip it apart for selling piecemeal. Any opinions?

It made the national news here too.  What a dump of snow.  At Mammoth Mountain in California they would have you leave your keys at the desk of the hotel so they could clear the parking if it dumped like that while you were up at the hill.  The pictures reminded me of there. 
My dream was to get marooned at a hill and unable to leave for several days due to the roads being closed.  Came close a couple of times but never realized it!

When I was there in late December, years back, they had over 7 feet of snow.

Crazy day at Whistler today. 58cm's overnight, which after snowing all morning turned to 80cm's in the previous 24hrs. When the snow stopped there was sun and blue sky, unbelievable!

Mount Washington on the island saw 80cm's overnight, too much for the hill to open.

I don't use Auto on my headlights for two reasons:

1)  If it's dark, Auto will turn on headlights before you start engine (and will remain on as you're cranking).  The voltage drop caused while the starter motor is working is not good for your HID ballasts.

2)  Auto was turning on my headlights when I entered the parkade at my work, all of the 1 minute to get to my parking spot and turning the car off (and vice versa exiting the parkade).  Repeated short cycle on/off is also not great for your HID ballasts.

People are dumb and treat driving as their right. I've also seen cars with auto headlights where people turn the headlights to the off position. :fulloffuck: 

With always on gauges, there's two modes: really bright so they can be read during the day and dim so they don't blind you at night. You'd think that if they don't get the message that the road ahead of them is not properly illuminated that getting eyes full of electrons would.

This is why Obama wanted to mandate non-defeatable automatic headlights standard in all cars.
