Re: How often do you clean your ride

I wash ours every 6 months even if it needs it or not,
Or until the wife pays someone to do it while she shops.

Re: E-tag placement

I hear they have new tags out now that are a fraction of the size of the one we have now. If they are as small as what I hear, I'll be getting these new smaller model E-tags.

Re: E-tag placement

Not unless mine grow extra long arms to reach from the back seat to the storage bin the E-tag is in.
But yes, no doubt ours will want to meddle if they get a chance to.
