Taking the 'Sploder into the shop on Friday. Burning a vacation day to do it, but it's making angry grindy scary scrapy noises which could be anything from brakes to CV joint to wheel bearing, or some combo. As much as I could burn a day or two fixing it myself, I gots no time.
Unfortunately, angry grindy scrapy noises are generally expensive.
More and more the idea of getting a roommate is appealing.
