      I let mine idle for 15 minutes.
      I need to clean up my rotors and put new pads on after the last DE event I went to.
      waiting on wheels and brake pads.

      Raced my first RallyCross and had the biggest grin on my face the whole time.

      Put about 220 mile son her going to work; coming home, then back to pick my wife up after her car died... Tomorrow will be worse with trying to get her's fixed

      In other words, all my .:R mad money is going once more to her car instead.

      Drove to work then home about 25 miles... A few days ago installed my clear corners... Then installed an Evmos intake, and now I'm waiting on my Blue Flame exhaust to get hear to install that.

      Just kidding!


      Didn't do anything to my .:R other than the normal 60 miles/day drive to work and back. I did show her off to a fellow board member whose '07 GTI I VAG-COM'd, though. She is in desperate need of a bath, though. She's a filthy whore!
