I was done with the ds and I had it all back in, told the wife to get in the seat and get ready because I was going to bleed the brakes.

I go to loosen the bleeder screw and *snap* it breaks off, half in my hand, half in the caliper :duh: .

*fuck* how much is this going to cost me? since Im going to need a new caliper now. So I take my wife's car to good ol' Discount auto and guess how much the caliper is?

$15, so I bought 2 :D
I freaking <3 Domestics.

yeah you love the domestic because parts are cheap...you know why they are cheap? because they break all the time! haha.

lol, funny how you mis-read that those were the original calipers from 91 and 208,000 miles, but sure why not! they break all the time!

Gotta love that. And yeah, domestics can go a hell of a long time, like any car, as long as they're taken care of.
