I get approached at gas stations too, you know.
"Excuse me sir, I can't help but notice you drive an old german sedan. Would you like me to call a tow truck for you? Oh- you're just getting gas? You mean it actually runs?" »
A modern MR2. I know it was technically made in the late 80's, but that just means that the early 90's were full of them by that point. »
I have a near-identical problem with my Audi, but I think the culprit is either the pump itself or worn out injectors. The filter is less than a year old. However, it's not too much of an issue, as I almost never rev the engine past 5k. »
For $30. It's called the Mach 6 and it's a slip-on velcro shoe that actually looks pretty good. And since I didn't feel like spending double or triple that price for a pair of Pumas that would probably be too narrow at the toe, I decided to give these a shot and bought a pair from Academy Sports a couple days ago. »
Thule and Yakima no longer make roof racks for my car, so I'm forced to buy a set of Sportracks instead come the fall. Luckily, they're a subsidiary brand of Thule, so I'm hoping the quality will be there. However, I'm still miffed at the lack of an available wind fairing... »
Ok, so, the brake pads and rotors are going to get installed next week. I've already gotten the new tie rods and camber bolts installed. Next on the list is transmission mounts, diff mounts, a timing belt kit, new hydraulic lifters, and a SPEC Stage 1 clutch kit. Those parts are all pretty much set in stone and will… »
Most Underrated Beers:
Anything by Leinenkugel, Dundee, or Thomas Creek.
Also, the new Guiness Black is all kinds of orgasmic. »
Guy had a quadcopter at the latest C&C that I frequent and took a really nice video of the venue. He apparently showed up a little earlier than me, as I remember pulling in and seeing it buzzing around at the top end of the lot for a couple minutes. It didn't quite register that he might be filming with it, haha. »
Oh man, I swear up and down the block- but only at the particular offending part. I will literally apologize to parts that get yelled at that had nothing to do with my anger. Like last night: I was installing front camber bolts on the Audi and getting the original upper strut bolt off on the driver's side was proving… »
I'm about $340 poorer now, but come next week, I should be able to finally go for a run on some of the nearby mountain roads without massive brake fade. Ordered Hawk HPS pads all around, along with CQuence (side company of StopTech) Absolute dimpled and slotted silver zinc-coated rotors all around. I've already got a… »
As some of you may know, I recently purchased a pair of Whiteline 14mm camber bolts for my 1991 Audi 80 quattro (pictured above). Before I originally ordered the bolts, I contacted Whiteline to verify that the ones listed on the website did in fact fit my exact model. I was assured that they would.
They did not.
Ok, before I even think again about taking my Audi there...anyone have anything to say about ProTech Motorsports in Greenville, SC? I was thinking of taking Herr Quattro there when it finally comes time for some serious powertrain work but now I'm terrified... »
One of these days, there's going to be a Forza game that actually features something at least on the same platform as a car I have at some point owned in my life.And on that day, that will be the only car I ever drive in the game, haha. »
I contacted Whiteline U.S.A. about the bolts not fitting my Audi, despite the website and their own representative assuring me that they would. Today I got an email back saying they're extremely sorry for the mix-up and that they're sending me a pair of smaller camber bolts that should fit my car, free of charge.… »
