Well not drinking is a good way to save money. But as a new homeowner you should start getting tools. We know you're handy and a house always need something fixed haha.
u know how people rave about that rear progress bar.. i had one on my GD and it made the car drive like crap. it's too stiff and wat the fits really need is a stiffer front bar to rid the initial sway.

kinda in a bad mood after driving a faking rwd pickup truck the last two days. lol. yep a nissan one the rental place gave me. these things are so disconnected front and rear it reminded me of the progress bar i had (and immediately sold) on the GD. like the front of the car is not the same car as the rear.

i need to get back in my GTI asap.

Awww you're in a Frontier? I loved my '06 Frontier.

I need to see if I have pics of my RCs I can post up. Thanks to photobucket holding my pictures for ransom...I can't link to them without paying for a membership.

Yeah as I was selling parts off the Fit, the first part to go was the sway bar and the DD ride comfort was night and day.

My concern with tools is really goofy but it boils down to this:

I want almost zero storage space in my garage haha. Right now my garage is a dark, cluttered mess. Over the winter/next spring I want to insulate, drywall & do some electrical in the space. I want one cabinet for the few tools I will have my detailing supplies. This quick sketch I threw together really badly should give some idea of what I'm seeking.



Wheel racks on end of garage, window with two LED bars beneath to light the car for minimal shadow when detailing, one cabinet to hold everything, two open shelves above to keep trinkets & a bluetooth speaker setup.

Looks good to me. I was thinking of wheel/tire rack for my garage too to store the stock wheels off the miata and civic lol. Better than storing them in my hobby room in the house LOL.

Ugh that is freaking lame. Everyone is so freaking sensitive nowadays.
Person #1: "Do your portion/job!"

Person (if you can call them that) #2: "Oh no...you spoke sternly at me for not doing my portion of the work/responsibility I'm telling teacher/boss/HR on you! My feelings are hurt and I do not know how to deal with confrontation/life *runs away crying*"

told my kid to remember 90% of the people, when you go out that front door, are idiots. leaders use all sorts of people including idiots and make something big. your job is to learn how to make idiots feel they are a part of something good, feel worthy, and make them willing do wat you want them to do to make your group win. that is wat leadership is all about.

he said he will try again.


ofcourse i also whispered his teacher is probably part of the 90 percent too. . haha.

CPO A3 2.0T FWD with Bang & Olufsen stereo and Virtual Cockpit sounds like a nice daily.

I have car ADD. It is a problem.

haha . i've not heard the B&O yet but the Fender stereo in my autobahn GTI and R is very good. i was impressed how good a factory stereo can sound.

Fender as in the guitar and amp maker Fender btw.. a Harman company

The B&O in that 2011 A4 avant I was considering was decent. Not amazing...but it sounded full.

Whats virtual cockpit?
