Default Why now

Jus tmy luck, when I come into some money to buy somemore stereo stuff this happens,
1.Need new brakes
2.Have to fix my front bumper which got ripped off
3. The wand switch that controls my turn signals, brights and wipers decided to snap off in my hands

None of this really has a point but I needed to vent

Thanks guys

If you fell into some money, maybe you might wanna go with RSM slotted rotors and ceramic pads. See if you can pick up the bumper and the wand from a wrecker, you may still have enough to get that new audio system

I know how you feel, right when you're ready to do something nice to your car something breaks.

thanks guys, good to know I am not alone, I got lucky the bumper is covered by insurance.
This is what I think happened with the wand. I think that there are two gears that interlock inside the steering column and that is what switches on the wipers etc, well I think the end of the wand broke off in there so it may not be a huge fix job.
