      Yeah I get that a lot. Its all under the hood and in the interior. If you can't reconize simple european mods, like most, then the car gets overlooked.
      Its no show car, but does tend to do decent in it's class.

      Now the dilema, go pick up Hawaii plates and have to run one up front. Or should I keep my Oregon plates and get to run front plateless (but then get hell from the locals)

      Mine was out there for about a month. Filthy is an understatement.
      Anyone know where to get some distilled water? Couldn't find any at Walmart.

      $1 for a gallon at target or you can try Long's, but it costs more there. Should have just given you a gallon as I have about 10 of them in my garage.

      I am guessing this Island is on well water. Washed the car for the first time and damn the calcium spots! Might need to get a few gallons myself!

      Anyone down for a free photoshoot this weekend? Wifey is coming in on Monday so I am trying to make this weekend go by quickly. You pick the location. Preferably within 30 minutes from Ewa Beach. Check my Flickr in my sig for examples of my previous shoots.

      Sorry, forgot about that... I'm not sure if it's a boost leak or not, I can hear it for sure when I accelerate, but I haven't noticed any loss of boost... It sounds like it's coming from the passenger side area, I can hear it better when driving by another car or something solid... I opened up the hood and checked it out, but didn't see anything... I don't really have to stuff here at the house to life it up and look underneath, plus even if I did have a jack it's not easy to get one under it

      If you live out in Ewa.. I would recommend going to the Ko'olina beach resort over past Kapolei (on H1)!
      When I was back on island I use to do photo shoots w/a bunch of the Team member's cars there..The people that worked there were cool about it!
      Heres some some the shots I took from around that area.. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Anyobody with some 2x4s, a jack and jackstands want to give me a hand on Friday? Looks like I will get the time at work tomorrow to get tech done and if all goes well (fingers crossed) the car will be getting it's low on. Unfortunately I will not be getting any of my car goodies until the end of September so i'd rather just wait until then instead of buying.
