Electronic-only European gift-giving ideas
I am in the US. My brother is in Europe on business, his first time out of the US, and will be there for about another six months. Right now he's in Germany, but the list of additional countries he'll go to later doesn't seem to be finalized. His birthday is coming up, and I want to send him a gift that won't generate logistical problems for him. [more inside]

Best Route from Billings to Eugene?
My husband is going to be traveling from Billings, MT to Eugene, OR and is still trying to determine the best route to take. He will be towing a small trailer with a Ford Ranger and he's not very familiar with mountain driving, so would like the easiest route, time is less important. Any suggestions, or even general tips I can pass along?

What's a nice dinner date spot in Budapest?
What's a good dinner (first-)date spot in Budapest for a couple of twenty-somethings? I'm 25, they're 28. I'd prefer Pest side, something not too loud, not super expensive by Budapest-ian standards.

Run away from a used car that's barely been driven in years?
I'm in the market for a used car, and I know that it's bad news when a car isn't driven regularly. I've found one that's otherwise good for me. I don't know how little driving is too little, whether the kinds of problems that result could be checked by a mechanic's pre-purchase inspection, and whether my own tough driving patterns make any difference.

Mechanicfilter - Ford Focus edition
Hi folks, had a low-speed collision in my 2012 Ford Focus. The lady in the car infront of me stopped unexpectedly in the middle of a roundabout and my front end went into her rear bumper (phrasing). Nobody was hurt, no obvious damage, everybody went on their way. However, ever since there has been a small amount of dried fluid appearing on my front bumper. Before I take it to the garage, mechanics of metafilter, can you help me name that fluid? Snowflakes inside. [more inside]
