      Better make sure she lowers it.


      Wash, clay, wax to get ready for snow. I don't have the heart to raise it back up for winter yet.

      Came home from Oktoberfest. I managed to not take a single photo of my car the entire weekend. However, someone else got one for me:

      10 minutes from my house a little red steering wheel light and traction control light came on. Steering became really stiff, waiting on tow to dealership.

      It's your cabin filter. Do not let them charge you an arm and a leg to do this.

      Yea, its a small air horn made for hiding under the floor of a subway car so its plenty loud but its not as obnoxious as putting a 5 chime over the road K5LA like most people try to jam in their trunks. Ill save the big horns for my pickup.

      This is what we do for fun out along old railroad lines etc. We hook up the big ones to my buddys escape and soon on my pickup and go play with them. We only use them in unpopulated areas because of possible noise complaints and issues with the police. Its good fun though!

      i did switch it out to a wix one i got locally, but the smell was still there last night, i checked drain pipe which did not appear to be clogged (pulled back carpet, and pulled pipe out of car body work)... this morning the smell was not present, but i'm not sure if the a/c needs to run longer.

      they called me and said that they would "deodorize" my a/c system for 150. I said um, NO YOU WILL NOT!! I have placed a call to the dealer I got the car from, expressing my frustration, lets see they man up and take care of it. Otherwise, I will go the klima cleaner route...
