Never said there was anything wrong with 6000k, just that it was too blue for my liking.
Although, I think technically 5500k has more light output. Buy a very small, probably mostly negligible amount...

Got my GL registered. $84.10.
It shouldn't be that expensive for a 23yo car...

You think that's bad, try registering a car in CO. My 87 GL was $120. And there's not even DEQ stuff down here.

My 84 fwd was $58, but I did transfer the plates from my other ea81 wagon, so that saved me a bit of money, and I still thought that was kind of a lot....

What does the age of the car have to do with registration costs? The car takes up just as much room on the road, and it costs just as much to keep track of it as if it were brand new.

Insurance is a different story. Since they will just write off these old beasts anyway, it should be cheaper for own-damage insurance, assuming anyone is nuts enough to buy it!

I don't know about other states, but in Maine it's sort of like this. You pay excise tax on cars 6 years old or newer.
And cars older than that the registration is calculated by the original value of the car. The original value of my 98 is like $25,000 because it's the limited.
The original value of my GL is like $10,000 because it's a base model. They don't calculate inflation, so the registration is cheaper.

If you have a 1945 lincoln your registration will be $20 or something because the original value of the car was so cheap.

definitely varies by State. used to be just weight of the car (road damage) but, they decided they could 'soak the rich' so, newer cars paid more.

dunno what the formula looks like now that they'd like to get older cars off the road.

Got the rest of the parts I needed to finish my rear WRX brake swap on my XT6 today. I have all the WRX rear parking brake hardware, new shoes, cables, brake lines from an Outback, and a leather wrapped ebrake handle from a 2.5RS that is now mounted in the car (did that last night).

Hoping to get it finished up so I can get the front parts swapped around:banana:
