      Write anything that comes to ur head. Add pics of your car. Pics make anything better.

      Every time u air out, it makes u the happiest child.

      If the dumping air sound is better than the ice-cream truck

      Ppl ask you how you drive

      Needing to tow ur car aired out is your worst fear

      U never let anyone drive your car

      You know ur wheels and ur car will never get stolen if u air out

      Ull never go back to a static setup

      When you cringe going over bad bumps in non-low cars.

      When you park next to a curb and can't get out.

      When you have to make sure your wheels are turned straight ahead when you park.

      air content.

      People ask you if you can make it bounce.

      You spend your day talking about rear nipples and dcups.

      when you mention you have air and everyone thinks it can bounce

      you feel like ice cube in a lolo

      you find yourself looking at your gauges more than the road

      The issue I'm finding with looking for a good train horn is that so many of them are too high-pitched for my liking- and the ones that do have the deeper sound I'm looking for are way too expensive to justify or they use more PSI than I'll be running.

      You know you're on air when you laugh at the thought of winter because you don't have to constantly adjust your coils.

      ...driving your car on sh!tty roads doesn't induce a nervous breakdown.

      ...you dodge potholes only to protect your wheel lips, not your oil pan.

      ...winter mode is just a button press away.

      ...you won't drive your car with a hangover for fear the compressors will come on.
