      How did that go? I had an issue of it squirting back out at me while trying to fill. Are you supposed to leave the inspection plug out while filling to give the air somewhere to go?

      Thursday stripped all the unecessary parts off, put in my race brake pads and loaded her up. Friday - ran it on the track all day. Had a guy in an E46 M3 ask me why it was so fast (running 100 octane and pulling on him on the straights) Saturday had to replace the hardwire cord on my Passport 8500 which for some reason took a dump right before driving home from the track friday night and unpacked my oil cooler and remote oil filter kit. Sunday, put all the necessary parts back in, swapped my race pads out and street pads in, test fit the oil cooler (looks like it's gonna fit) and gave it a thorough washing. Today - order new Nitto NT-01's for the track as my Hankooks finally showed their cords to me on the last run on Friday.

      Installed 15mm spacers on the rear wheels! Looks great! A very subtle improvement.

      Washed and vacuumed. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] De-greased the engine. Also cleaned the windows.
      Ah...feels good to look at a clean TT. We had a sprinkle of rain then a bunch of dust blowing around. My car looked like a leopard w/ all those damn spots!

    22. 05-03-2008 03:51 PM #47
      I hit it and swore at it because the instrument cluster is starting to take a ****

    23. 05-04-2008 12:06 AM #48
      I washed off 9 eggs that were pelted at it.
      Then later in the day just gazed in AWW at the damage the eggs caused.
      So painful!!!
      Wish people weren't such cowards and instead of throwing them at my car just tried throwing them at me. (wouldn't go over as well for the culprit.)

      I'm giving my car a nice wash/clay/prep polish/wax today and am doing a quick vacuum today.
      Woohooo sunny and 64 degrees, it's nice out!
      P.S. The A4 forum is dead on Vortex, I just wanted to say hi haha

      Well, I chipped mine today (InMotion) and swapped out the spark plugs for one heat range colder.
      It now officially goes like hell.
      Next up, new (to me) wheels.
