  • Is this Restaurant Liable?

    Two weeks ago I had a first date at my favorite restaurant in Pasadena. It was terrible and I guess I was in a rush to leave. When I realized I left my near new Ray Bans, I called them and they said they found them. I advised them that I would return in two weeks and they said that they'd be happy to keep them safe until then.

    Today was two weeks later and they can't find them... Do you think they owe me a replacement pair? I was a paying customer and entrusted my property to them-through their negligence they lost it, I believe they are liable... (bailment for hire/negligence)

  • BMW Experts-please help!?


    I believe that I was given a salvaged 01 330i engine instead of mine being remanufactured. I located the serial number of the engine which was located on the left side up past the steering knuckle. It is 25649405. My VIN is WBAAV53431FJ68566. Isn't this a mismatch or is there some decoding that needs to be done? Thanks in advance!

  • Internet Intellectual Property Question?

    I have an idea that takes an existing service and applies it to the online dating market as a premium product/badge. Any ideas on how to protect my idea?

    I don't believe this is patentable as it's a combination of two existing products. In your experience, would creating a website promoting this idea serve as notice? Any ideas you may have would be greatly appreciated.

  • Employment Law question?


    I work for a successful company that is trying to cut costs as many are. As a result, I am essentially being demoted to a position I held 5 years ago-it is a very high stress position that puts my health at risk and my doctor has forbidden me to do this function.

    I realize that work is on an at-will basis, but if I have my doctor's certificate can the company separate me if I tell them that I can not do this work? Do they have any legal duty to try to accommodate me? I am a very successful and productive employee and am in very good standing.

  • California Tax Return Question?

    Hello-I'm wondering if my parents need to file a Federal or State tax return. Other than Social Security, my dad (84) gets $2292 in pension annually. My mom (80) who is in a nursing home gets $437 per month in pension after insurance is deducted ($578 per month pre-deductions).

    Your help is greatly appreciated!

  • Maxflo Dual Exhaust on Porsche has a little rattle-can I take to Midas?

    Not to sound cheap, but I feel an independent muffler shop will charge me up for a minor issue and wonder if any of you have taken a perfomance exhaust to Midas. I'll cough up the dough if you think Midas sucks...

  • Porsche Paranoia?

    My 987 is a "garage king" that I drive only a few times a week. I see a tiny drop of oil when I bring back home and wonder if I should take it into shop for that. It got checked out a few months ago and got a clean bill of health and has no other issues. Do I suffer from the worry syndrome many of us have or should I take it in $$$ ?

  • Auto Collision-Is it mandatory to report to my auto insurance?

    On Wednesday, I got rear-ended by a drunk driver who accepted full liability before being carted away to the pokey. We duly exchanged insurance info and I'm retaining an attorney next week. The CHP made a report also. Do I still need to contact my insurance or can my attorney take care of that? Strictly speaking, my insurance card states "to make a claim" which I am not doing since clear liability vests with the other driver.

  • Auto Collision Property Damage Question?

    I was rear-ended and the driver was drunk, clear liabilty. My fairly valuable watch was damaged in the collision and is probably irreparable. Am I entitled for recovery? It was a gift, I don't have the receipt.

  • Boxster Coolant Leak-help!?

    I have an '01 Boxster that just got its 60K service, everything was fully checked out-cleared with flying colors. I noticed a little fluid recently-a buddy said probably just an air conditioning discharge.

    Last night after I got home, it sounded like rain system under my car . In one fell swoop, the coolant is all gone, some minor moisture on the cap. Temp gauge held steady at 180 all night, no warning signs. This is my first issue with the car...

    1. To get the car to a mechanic, should I refill with water or Porsche authorized antifreeze?

    2. From what I described, does it sound like a blown hose, pump (gulp) or something else?

    3. How much should any of those fixes cost?

    Thanks Fellow Porsche pals!

  • Porsche Boxster customized dual exhaust question.?

    I just bought a customized Boxster with a Custom Maxflo Dual Exhaust System. I love the roar of this system but my girlfriend says it's a little too loud at times. Is it possible to dial down the volume or do I give her an ultimatum? If it's possible, how much would it cost to do so?

  • Jaguar '00 XK8 Suspension Question?

    Quick question, I test drove a '00 XK8 recently and there was some vibration and slight noise towards the front right wheel.

    The guy I'm buying it from said it hadn't been driven for some time and as a result something happens with the bushings sometimes and he said he'll replace it. The guy's a mechanic, is willing to give me a full warranty and the Carfax is very clean.

    Does his story sound plausible?
