      im sure it was, i also need to change the fluid...im trying liqui moly this time.

      i have had a 90a stage 2 subframe insert for 75k miles(my first mod). and i have had the 65a stage 1 mount for a little less than 10k miles.

      and idk wtf happened to the mounts shown in the BFI site with 40k miles

      Washed and waxed the livery today.

      Well, except the MK4. She's being a royal pain in my ass.

      Changed my cam follower, changed my oil, replaced a brake light, cleaned my wheels, then took a picture of it.

      I do have the dogbone, but its falling apart. Whatever bushing we used was a real POS. I think that may be my issue. I always figured if I upgraded one I should do them all to keep things the same. Now what if I was to replace with factory parts? Should i still do all of them at once?

      On my way home, got 2 blocks from my house, and heard a bang, and rev'd out. Broke drivers side axle, FML! To add fuel to the fire, having no luck finding one locally and the possible places that I could are closed on sundays. Guess its time to get hammered

      Planned on installing my exhaust, but it rained after work till dark. Also went to get my intake from ups since i wasn't here when they tried to drop it off but they were closed for thanksgiving. All and all a very unproductive day. Did order myself a new rear sway bar though

      You should get these horns. They are the hella super horns and are crazy loud. Say a bunch of cars at h2oi with them and couldn't figure out what they were but then in another thread finally figured out what they were. They look pretty cool through the grill too

      I hate that kind of a beep, it sounds too much like an annoying tinny Japanese car.

      Well, yesterday I cleaned out the garage so I can finally do this...



      I ordered this.



      Spent $130 on supplies from www.autobodytoolmart.com in order to finish this...



      ...and bought this.



      Now have two 2009 PG Jetta SE's both with 28,000 miles (mines maunal, hers in automatic)
