      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!
      My other other car has 2,150HP per axle.

      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...

      HAHAHA you must be new to Votex/Individual stuff i guess

      jumped it with a battery charger I scavenged out of an old bus/rv conversion, then drove home on a fresh alignment. straight as an arrow on a bumpy interstate at 80+, don't regret the fsb chop one bit.

      Welcome to the joys of being Canadian and having all the good stuff come from the states...

      Don't order from ecs, you'll get screwed with duty charges every single time... Ask me how I know

      Cause I think a bunch of crazy colored stickers looks too flashy. You can hardly see the ones that are black on black unless you look for them. Cleaner look IMO.

      I know, i try to avoid ecstuning as the duties always rape me. I ordered a 4 motion lip for my mk4 before... the receipt was not pretty

      but i put the new shifter in and so far so good, havent had a chance to test drive the car yet but shifting while stationary felt great. feels like 1, 3, and 5 were shortened while 2, 4, and 6 remained the same. nice subtle difference
