      UM ecu tune loaded!

      Andy got my fuel filter changed it shot a load of gas like Ron Jeremy haha

      Just bought some adams slotted and drilled rotors, paid $300 for new front and rear rotors and new pads. Not going to use the pads, probably sell them and possibly the rotors also. Depending on what I can get for them they are $500 new for front and rear. I am thinking about 2 piece racebrake light weight rotors, but there kind of pricey

      I decided to go with haldex switch for now. I feel like it will benefit me more than the intake.

      Also noticed a faint noise coming from the passenger rear side of the car. Almost sounds like a servo motor moving back and forth

      Vinyl came its too dark, sending it back.

      Installed s2t paddle shifters. I like!
      One of them is has about a mm of play in it. Going to take it apart and replace the spring later.

      Upon removing my battery for the paddle install, I noticed about 1-2" of water in the battery tray. I have no idea how it got there. But I put a towel over top it to try and see where the water is coming from. Weird??

      April is an exciting month:
      7th cars and coffee
      15th local autoX
      22nd PKG autoX/car show

      Still need to install my haldex switch. I have pinned it out and sourced the plugs but not the pins. Ive been super busy. Between new bathroom floors, opening the pool/landscaping and new love of kayaking

      Sold the tires on my all seasons on my stock wheels looks to get a dedicated set of winters any one have a recommendation for width, wall height, and brand?

      have you switched tails? this may cause water in the battery tray... or a bad seal..


      otherwise it would be clogged sunroof drains, but im not sure they would drain into there.

      as for winters, im a sucker for a dunlop wintersport or a set of hakkas

      No tail change. Hmmm is it hard to remove the hatch trim? I may pop it off and see if I can find moisture... Wait my car went in for warranty work and they replaced all the bulbs... I think they may have taken them out when they did that. Also. Noticed my 3rd brake light was popped out the other day just popped it back in. I need to figure out how to remove that hatch Trim.

      I may also try and put a better seal on the battery box and lid.

      I meant the seal on the tails. Reseat it. This is most likely the issue
