Some updates on my Kia and my job. I think I will call my Kia “Stealth Mode”. It is honestly one of the blandest cars. A high enough average MSRP to not be in the same class as a Versa or Fiesta but not fancy enough to make any bad first impressions.

One of my first days, I attended a drug fueled attempted murder/rampage. The house was a disaster and my shoes had blood, blueberry juice and glass all over them. I then had to recently attend a greenhouse crop claim where biosecurity is very important. That means, my car has to be easy to disinfect. So I bought Weathertechs for the front, I can take them out and clean them easily.

Given the milage I’m wracking up and Vancouver’s terrible drivers, I installed a Garmin dashcam. I thought about hard wiring it in but I didn’t want to spend the money. I didn’t really want to run the cord along the weatherstripping either since pulling trim of a 3 week old car is not my idea of fun.

The trunk is fantastic. I need to put way more gear in it and sometimes evidence but so far it accommodates everything I need it to.

I’ll be buying some Blizzaks for it soon too. Any suggestions for cheap mods to increase livability, durability or utility?
