The Dragon is Snoring

I used to love it when it rains. Recently though every-time it rains I worry a bit. A few weeks ago I noticed the rubber seal at the bottom of my cars front windshield had started to crack and at one spot a small piece of the rubber seal had actually fallen off. I have been too busy with work and extremely lazy to go and have it checked and fixed. I don't even know where to go! The BMW agent would want to keep my car in for a few days for a full checkup and probably charge me a leg and an arm to get it fixed. The regular garages near my house I barely trust to fix a flat yet alone this. Plus, my problem isn't a mechanical problem.. its a window seal problem. It really sucks. I tried using duck-tape (got the idea off the pre-pimped out cars on the "Pimp my Ride" show) but duck-tape on a 2001 BMW coupe REALLY sticks out. So now, every-time it rains I get worried water is actually seeping into the car. This is the first winter where I wish it doesn't rain anymore. I need to get a Made in Japan SUV.

Hi Mark. I'm glad you posted a comment on my blog, so I could find yours! Very cool. :)

I LOVE "Pimp My Ride". I wish someone could "Pimp My World"!!!! I would love someone to come along and put 18" Avanti rims on my car (so I can go out and hit an un-marked speed bump and ruin them the next day.

Window weather-stripping: Some of those little shops in Shuwaikh can put weather-stripping on your windows. I know this because mine is leaking water on the drivers side and I am too damn lazy to go get it fixed. Duct tape is just hailag, my friend! You'll look like a redneck. At least if you are going to used duct tape - put it somewhere where no one is going to see it: Like I do on my exhaust system!
