      Mooshoo, that's impressive. Is the stitching just for decoration or does it serve an actual purpose like reduce the chance for hanging down again in a decade? Regardless it looks damn fine.

      I've got some questions:

      Any consideration to making this a normal item like the other oil filter housing caps? $170 is a bit much for my budget right now unless you know of anyone needing to...

      Some current laptops come with a serial port since there's a lot of tech that still uses serial for a console. More than likely, you will still need an old computer because the CCM is very picky with...

      The only one I can find on Gruvenparts' website is the Yarrowsport stress bar that's been around since before the Unibrace. If you're interested in that, there's plenty of reviews of it.

      After that headache, I don't think I'll be volunteering to do that for anyone local. Talk about a world of hurt for a byte. I'm still willing to grab the SKC since that's read-only.

      Additionally the amount of power may not be a good idea either. My first car was a slow POS and that was a good thing. If I had a R32, I would have killed myself in it and possibly anyone else around...

      I know this is long so the TL;DR is: Memorize and understand the manual. Schedule an appointment with a certified car seat tech and take notes; make everyone that's going to deal with a car seat do...

      It's easy to get in, but not that easy to hot wire. IIRC, and I could be wrong, one just needs to yank the cylinder out and use a flat head screwdriver to unlock the door; this will disarm the alarm...

      vToe has a pretty good list. Double check on the latest reports for UMs strut mount. IIRC there were a few people saying that it had crushed as well. A good replacement is the one that VW Racing use...

      Just cut the bottom off your airbox. Simple, easy, and worth it. I particularly like the drone/growl at 3k when the throttle is opened up in any gear. I haven't noticed it when being a good boy, but...

      :( Definitely an issue. Good idea on reinforcing it.
