On the smog test thing, is there a visual part? Or do they just test the tail pipe emissions and call it a day?
Visual checks would be at the DMV for VIN inspection when you first move here, or at least my bike and an air-bagged truck I owned were both scrutinized during that process. So I guess it depends on the overall look of the vehicle in my experience.

When I lived in 89109 my car insurance was higher with a 2 mile commute to work than when I moved to 89123. Proximity to the strip was how the agent explained it to me when I asked why my insurance went up. That was a few years back but I think it is still true. This town is very transient so vehicle registration, insurance, etc is easier to tax or inflate since many people do not own homes.

If its OBD2 they only hook up to your port and if you have no check engine light your fine.

OBD1 they do a sniff test and visual

Banks are holding in to the houses to help drive demand up= drive prices up. There are a lot of houses but banks won't make them available.

Might I recommend the Fierce MTs I am currently running. Everyone will know you're a badass with barbed wire on your tires and you will be the envy of everyone who has sub-badass tires. Oh, and they have tacked everything I have thrown at them including pulling two race trucks simultaniously through silt, rock, asphalt. The tread life is amazing as well. I bought mine with supposedly 10k miles on them, I have put another 50k on them, and they are still knobby as hell, look great with minimal "chunkin".

I wonder if it's a chemical at the Pit Stop car wash. Been there 3 times with my Tacoma the past month. Noticed both of these plastics melting a few days after I went through twice in a row after first round didn't get the bugs off from a road trip. hmmmmm

I'll get pictures tomorrow. I took one tonight but it's dark and doesn't show justice (but still looks like shit)

After doing some searching, it sounds goofy but could be due to energy efficient windows reflecting the sun. Which in turn gets much hotter than usual and is melting the cheaper than most cars plastic on Toyota tacoma's and Prius cars.
http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...mirrors-3.html

look through comments. The 2nd and 3rd page have pictures of the window reflection.. It might be where I'm parking my Taco in this apartment complex with huge windows right in front of it. Interesting to say the least.
