Yeah, that'd be my guess. I'm nowhere near Cali, but most of the time that's how these laws are enacted.

Ha! We must be woven from the same fabric because that's kind of how I responded. Cool concept, but man, I'm not into that futuristic space look. I really like the 5th Gen body, myself.

Transmission Fluid Filter Gasket

From what I'm reading/seeing, the gasket on the tranny fluid filter looks like a pain to replace. So long as the old one appears to be in halfway decent shape, is there any reason for me not to just...

I was looking at getting a low mileage Camry right before COVID. The ones that I was eyeballing were going for around $15K. Now? They're well over $20k. It's nuts out there.

This. The best description I read about the sound of our engines is this: a sewing machine with slight rattle. I went from driving a 2014 Camry to this, so imagine my surprise with all the noise.
