Since there is no other outlet for this...I cried in my a3 today when i learned that LOL Bump! is gone.....
FSI, Lava Grey Inside Black Dipped Outside, Stoptech Big Kit, Bilsten Struts, H&R Springs, GIAC 93 Octane Flash, 6000K HID, Forge Atmospheric Spacer, Carbonio intake.
Erm.....can I include what I done on Saturday ?
After shaking the bottle of paint which I have in kit-form for touching in chips, I opened the bottle, went to dip in the artist's brush (to touch in a tiny chip on the driver's door seal), and the bottle slipped from my hand !....
....no pics unfortunately as I went into emergency mode, but I had paint spilled down the driver's door....paint spots splattered on the roof, the windscreen, and the mirror casing too !
Lucky for me, I had thinners which came with the kit, and after 45minutes off serious nose-to-paint rubbing with a lint-free cloth I managed to get rid off EVERY darn spot/stripe off excess paint.
Oh, and for the record, the chip STILL didn't manage to get touched-in.

Hmm let's see...since the last update, I have the door speakers in and the door trim back on. I ran all the wiring and have all the dash panel/glovebox/footwell trim back on. Now I just need to mount and hook up the amp, then finish the sub box, and hopefully everything will be done
I was greeted by a cute tw girl who helped me out.. I told her what happened and she gave me a new pair for free.
I put them on when i got back to the states and after a few weeks they started ot crack again and bubble. But this time only the passanger side bubbled and cracked. My driver side still good. I am thinking the problem is that the CA sun kills it. I park my car out in the sun 24-7 so it gets hit hard with it. Im sure if you par your car inside it probably wont happen.
The girl also told me she is gonna let the people know about the bubbling and cracking.. I assume they probably have better ones now.
Carried out my weekly Saturday morning cleaning regime to keep it how it should be.
Just as I moved onto the wheels it began raining, but only slight misty type rain. So I moved the car back under the carport, dried it all over again, and clayed the windows to get them back to being silky smooth for me to clean.
After two hours of cleaning, I put down the tools, made a coffee and had lunch. Then took it out for a drive
Now, all I have to do is finish the sub enclosure, install it, and hook it up. It's been a long process, but I think I'm on the home stretch now!
Quite a lot this week. I installed me sound system: Hybrid Audio Clarus 6 1/2 Front Components, Sony 6 1/2 Coaxials in the rear, custom MDF baffles i made myself and sealed them up with spray on bedliner, Older single din Pioneer HU (i need a new cage to install my Avic-x920BT but i wanted some tunes so i put in an old stereo i had)
I also Debadged her, washed her, waxed her by hand (my arms are killing me) and painted my grill surround and front emblem black.
Also i took some HDR pics of her with my other baby: 08 CBR1000rr, but i took those before i debadged and dechromed her so i will need to take some more pics soon.
Here is one of the pics:

But they sound AMAZING
the clarus series is the best bang for buck and i got the 6 1/2 component set for about $400 about a year ago (i had em in my previous vehicle) which was a great deal... but i think they retail for about $500-600, which if you do some research on GOOD components, isnt too bad.
The def sound like they should cost twice as much though, especially with a good amp and tune. They will go with me to whatever car i have for sure.
Cam follower check/replacement. Could have left it in for another 5k but it lasted 20k and didn't want to press my luck.
A3 is severely jealous...
Installed superspint x pipe and race cans on the m coupe...sounds like an old Ferarri. Must record some footage as it sound amazing.
