      Thanks. Assuming it is the same thing again, it's something to do with the MAF... I'll have to figure it out this weekend.

      Yeah, you spend all this time on the internet posting on a forum, why not just get some good products at good prices on the internet too? But on the other hand, I do think you can get good products at a walk in store...I chose the products that I use because of the way the people back their products and really seem to care about cars and how to care for them over a faceless corporation. Plus, I can just walk into a store and buy them if I choose (obviously not the case for everyone).

      As for my R today, starting off badly...some idiot was dropping stuff off the back of his truck on the freeway and I stupidly ran right into a box or something. Shattered my lower center grille and left a lot of marks on my bumper. Plus side is I think the marks should buff out and that will give me a reason to do a full detail on the car. I luckily have an extra front grille that I can use to replace but the plastidipped front was also damaged so I have to redo that and it took me nearly 6 months to get around to it last time.
      If your gas cap light comes on even if you think you tightened the cap, try pulling on the cap as you tighten it. Worked for me.

      You really have to piss in everyone's Cheerios, don't you? A faceless corporation? Everyone starts at the bottom...Volkswagen did too. Doesn't make them faceless or worth any less.

      And I guess I'll humor you since you seem like such an idiot...I'm talking about supporting certain companies because they seem to care about their products and they show it by supporting the customer with lots of details as to what their products do, how to use them properly and they show a general love for cars. What the hell do you mean everyone starts at the bottom? Sure but what does that have to do with anything I said? If anything, I'm talking about supporting the little guys who don't have the support of multinational chain stores where you find products by the HUGE, faceless corporations who couldn't give a crap about anything other than increasing their profits by securing their place within these stores..they do this by focusing on marketing and cutting corners instead of focusing on making the best product they can...But you wouldn't understand anything like that would you?

      Haha, it's all good Katie...you did nothing but ask a valid question about how to better care for your car.

      Don't worry about the little bickering some people here try to stir up...those people seem to be really insecure about their own lives so they try to attack anyone who speaks with reasoning and logic because it seems to be too difficult for them to think for themselves and it intimidates them whenever someone else does.

      I know you as well as you portray yourself here. You don't have any more to say because you either see how idiotic your comment was or you are still too stupid to understand what happened.

      Let's take another look at what you posted so we can all see exactly what our true colors are:

      You really have to piss in everyone's Cheerios, don't you?

      Who's Cheerios exactly do you think I'm trying to piss in?

      A faceless corporation?

      Oh, the faceless corporation? Yeah sure, I do piss in their Cheerios whenever I can because they piss in all of our Cheerios by putting their own profits ahead of anything and everything else. I have no reason to support corporations like this if I have a better alternative and if more people did the same, we would have more better products and less garbage to sift through.

      Everyone starts at the bottom...Volkswagen did too. Doesn't make them faceless or worth any less.

      Wait a minute? Do you even know what you are talking about yourself? How did me talking about supporting the little guy who cares about what they do turn into you assuming I don't think everyone starts at the bottom or that the faceless corporations I referred to are at the bottom? Those faceless corporations are at the top and that is why they think they can get away with selling lower and lower quality products for the sole purpose of increasing their profits. They don't care about you or your car, only how much they can get away with in their corner cutting to still sell as many products as possible. The funniest thing about all of this is I even said I think some of the products from the big name companies that you find everywhere are pretty good so I never tried to piss in anyone's Cheerios as you claim.

      So, if these little exchanges have shown anything, it shows that I was responding to someone who asked for my help and opinion and all you did was try to pour salt on my game with nothing useful to add other than showing how confused you are to everyone. I hope you feel better about yourself and have a nice day!
