      Hi. There are a few different ways to do this. Open up the engine bay, and on the firewall, just below the brake booster, you'll see a rubber plug. Pull this plug out and you'll have a nice hole to...

      240z is one of my favorite cars, by far. This one is turning out quite nice. With the steering rack being so dirty compared to all that other pretty new/powder coated stuff, are you planning on...

      This one is hard to say what is right and what isn't. On one point, the legal system should have been brought in on this, and the guy should be alive. However, being human, emotions and pure grief...

      The under hood temps of our Beetles is very warm. If you look at the front, there is not much room for air to get in. As a result, the under hood temps get pretty hot. I've seen people remove the...

      The dealership knew it was wrong, or they wouldn't have hidden it, by telling the guy that the car is on the lot somewhere. He had a good reason to be upset with the dealer.

      My biggest issue with my Beetle is that I can't seem to get the crank seal on the timing belt side to stop leaking, no matter how many times I've replaced it. On my truck, it's so old, that it...

      Honestly, I would rather have the additional safety stuff on the car, and still get rid of the frivolous lawsuits.

      Came here expecting teddy bear wheels, leaving satisfied.

      On a side note, I'm a bit creeped about how many different ones there are though. :what:

      If you want to retain it's "soul," then a 4g63t or perhaps even the small 6 that was in the FTO. If it was me, I'd go with the LS. Who cares about soul when you have rock solid power and reliability,...

      I put Monroe shocks on my Corolla, and they were a good replacement for stock use shocks. They're supposed to be better than stock. It was a huge improvement over the still stock shocks (237k miles,...

      I've sold and bought several times as well. I always go armed, and to a public place. If you're unable to carry (legally), then a public place is a great option.

      1. A bottle of oil and anti-freeze (premixed).
      2. Kitty litter.
      3. A cooler full of drinks.
      4. Tool kit....
