Boring.

The $150 is to treat yourself. It's found money, and about to be lost if you don't hit buy.
Using it for maintenance parts you need isn't not hitting buy....

When you get older and wiser you learn a penny saved is a penny earned is true. Eventually by resisting the little impulse 'treat yourself' $50 here and $150 there, you put yourself in a position you can do big things you really want.

In my scenario, I've still got $150 in found money. Just instead of having to spend it at summit on their stuff at their prices I can spend it anywhere.

Unless you want to be stuck either paying rent all your life, or, always cashed out with a huge mortgage payment, there's also better things to do then always ftivilously spend the found money.

Then again, I made my last rent payment in my 20s and last mortgage payment in my 30s, but that's too boring so who knows.... when we want a car to play with, if there's favorable (0% or something similar) we finance and earn ROI somewhere above interest payments on the money we didnt spend. If not, we pay cash. These days it confuses dealerships to walk in and pay cash.

Maybe more people should rethink the treat yourself all the time mentality and choose to get ahead, there'd be less government handouts.

Salvage yard vs. new, penny on the ground or saved from that .99cent item. Saved money adds up.

$150 doesn't get you very much at summit. Maybe a hat and a water bottle or something.

Ditto on the body bushing kit.

Summit has an in house kit that's poly but not excruciatingly firm. I've put it in both my cars and have been happy.

Currently there's a steering wheel and adapter in my cart. I just need to spend the other $150.

I'll check it out. It's nice to have some isolation and the harder bushings don't really provide much.

Poly comes in a bunch of different durometeres (or shore hardness) and it's frustrating how hard it can be to find the specs for that sometimes. One time I ordered some control arm bushings to make motor mounts out of, and it turned out they were harder than concrete. Needless to say I didn't proceed with using them, since it wasn't even going to be a performance application. :rofl:

I won a $50 gift card for Amazon on S10forum.com and bought a set of ceramic coated Patroit headers. Cost was more, but what I wanted.
