      opinions on ed30 lip on a rabbit?

      Gorgeous! I need something like that for my Mk6.

      no you arent.. you need to heat that up still.. then use a razor to get it flush. trust me its easy with a little heat and it'll go flush. i can send you pictures of the way it looks. it's simple.

      just use a lighter or heat gun. heat it up and use the razor and literally cut it at the surface. then use the heat to press the plastic into the small holes and you're good to go!
      god i love my car. it may not be fast, but it's crazy fun!

      I flogged my 2.5 pretty good today.
      I did the Tail of the Dragon with a bunch of Wookies.
      My little 15" tires were squealing up & down the Dragon

      It is. 1024bit encryption versus the 256bit, is what I read on a previous thread.

      I know OBDII cracking is going to be difficult.

      Hooray bench flashing!

      Should be able to get the old engine out and new one in by then. Even though it took me like 2+ weeks to do mine, I was told by 20 squared that it only takes 1 day to pull old out and 1 day to put new in

      I didn't know that, but it makes sense. I haven' seen or heard anything about them in a while. This was last May when my engine needed to be replaced that I talked to them while I was searching for a new one. I thought that sounded a little crazy

      I just blew both my front struts this week and my rear drivers side has been gone for a while now. So today I am picking up some K-Sport Kontrol Pro's locally today and installing when I get home.

      This just ate away from my SoWo fund.... Here's hoping that C2 has a spectacular deal on the SRI. Or I wont be able to afford it for the trip

      i've been busy....

      as in crazy amounts of black residue under my fingernails.
      I have been super busy going crazy stripping, hand wet sanding and polishing my new wheels...
      ordered adaptec adapters/spacers and some new lug nuts
      to anyone who is stupid enough to open this can of worms.... have fun! i have done now 2 sets of wheels. and my new wheels are at least much easier. i had to buy a handful of professional tools. that anyone interested in polishing can feel free to ask about...

      i can say though that it's been a crazy amount of work. but overall it's going to be AWESOME!!!

      wont show them until they're done and mounted...
      god i love my car. it may not be fast, but it's crazy fun!
