      I'm so sorry about your situation, but on a good note, at least you'll have us to hang out with.

      Look on the bright side.... at least it's not Korea . your life is what you make it not the location you are put into... make the best and I bet you're be going elsewhere depending on your career field only if it is for a few months at a time then you're be happy to return to Shaw.

      Are you looking at buying or renting? Do you have school age children? Also just heard on the news today that kershaw County is trying to cut the JV sports in their schools to save money. So if you have teens who play sports they may will have to wait to play.

      If your looking in Camden, look in the country areas, not in the city limits.

      Then you definitely will be wasting your time within the city limits.

      One thing our realtor taught us when we were buying our first house was to put a 24hr expiration on the offer. It keeps the seller from screwing with you by sitting on your offer while they try to negotiate other offers.

      yea we did that but they all came in with in a hour of eachother i guess thats what happens when you are looking @ foreclosed houses

      Ahhh... yeah... I'm sure offers just pour in on those.

      if it's a nice house ... one house we looked/bid on was only on the market 2 days and we weren't the first offer, it's fn crazy.
      anyways whats the scene like there? i met a few people @ tail of the dragon but i am horrible with names and forgot their names.

      werd up?! Wow nrowensyb got a WRX!? No more s4?? Was the S4 a lemmon? Issues with it? Don't recommend ever getting one? (I always consider buying one of those one day) I actually love Subies - I really wanted a 2004 Forrester XT for a while. I still do I guess.
      Nice rainy day over here in Redbank so far today.

      We just took my wifes Cabrio off the road. It developed a coolant leak last year, then blew the head gasket. Fixed the blown h/g put it back on the road then it developed a cooling issue(gauge works intermittently)which in turns causes the car to run hot. Just tired of chasing issues on this motor. So we are debating a Vr6 swap or rebuildig the 2 liter and put a turbo on it, but if we went the turbo route would still have to chase down all these issues. I'm ordering VAG-COM this week, I need it it for the GLi also so it works out. The biggest issue in this is she wants to keep the auto trans. So no matter what I do I have to rebuild a trans to hold up to one or the other.

      yea a vr6 swap in a 3.5 cabrio keeping it a auto is going to be a PITA. you would have to find a mk4 vr6 auto car to take everything from. dont know about the laws in SC but most places its illegal to put a older motor in a newer car.

      I know the engine, management and trans ould have to be from a mkIV, but the accesory drive and subfrmae woiuld have to be from a mkIII. That's why I've debated just doing the turbo, or a S/C. This going to be a PITA either way. I'm thinking about doing the turbo, either way the car is staying off the road while this all being figured out and finished.

      well just adding turbo or S/C will be fairly easy I would worry about how long the auto trans will hold up with a turbo, the S/c will be easier on the trans but still not the best thing for a it. I dont know if anyone has any upgraded parts for the auto trans.

      I've been talking to Import Performance Transmission out of Wayne, NJ. They have a bunch of upgrades for the 01M. I'm thinking about sending the trans to them for a rebuild.
