    Interest on an auto loan accrues on a daily principal balance (in most cases with reputable lenders) by paying half the payment every two weeks you are paying half the months interest and then further reducing the principal balance so that when the next bit of interest accrues, they are calculating it on a lesser principal amount which means more goes towards your principal faster. Another good ideal is to make a little extra on each payment as it further reduces your principal. When you make a payment, interest is paid first and then anything left over goes toward principal, which is what they calculate your interest on.

    here is a very very simple example not factoring in interest obviously. Your payment is $200 each month. You pay $250 each month. So each month there is $50 extra dollars going towards your loan. So every 4 months you are making an "extra" $200 payment. In a 1 year span, you essentially make 3 "extra" payment. 5 year loan... 15 "extra" payments... you cut over a year off your loan. Very simple example not factoring in interest but you get the general idea. 50 bucks a month turns a 60 month loan into a 45 month loan.

    So I finally installed the Taco Garage DMM (Dashtop Multi Mount) and cobbled together what I needed to make my preferred QI charger work with it. Pretty happy with how it turned out. Also installed the Taco Garage Yoda start stop button. :D

    Qi charger
    1” ball phone mount adapter
    1” ball double socket arm

    LOVE THE LOOK OF THAT ROOF RACK, WAS IT HARD TO INSTALL?

    I PLAN TO BUY IT AND THE DV8 BUMPER THAT SAYS NO CUTTING AS WELL.

    Installed the TG DMM today with the TG Mighty Magnet.
    Wayyyyyy better than the dollar store vent clip I was using.
    Super easy install. Magnet seems super strong.
    Very happy with it!20210406_142248.jpg 20210406_142212.jpg 20210406_142243.jpg

    I think they're called garages. I have to ask my wife why she's parked in my wood shop.

    Cool, it does seem like the bolts are easy to get to.
