      Just FYI, I'd get an alignment after installing the subframe collars and bolts...just in case your to do list is in chronological order

      I was planning on doing the wheel swap/subframe collar/bolts at the same time...so alignment would have been after.

      Good lookin' out

      Still debating. Not sure if I want to run seasonal wheels or not. Someone here said he may be interested as well (also local). I'll see what his real interests are for them.

      if you feel like installing your puddle lights at h20 and looking for assistance, feel free to let me know. After my whole debacle getting them in and wired right, we could prob knock out all four doors in an hour or so.

      my condo has a covered garage as well.

      Well, I have some bad news for you all. See below:

      Hey everyone, I'm hoping you all can give me a hand in looking out for my wheels that were stolen from my car last night.

      I walked out this morning to find this:



      The wheels in question are a set of BBS/Stern rare two piece wheel. BBS RS757 18x9 et48, 5x114.3 and BBS RS761 18x10 et52, 5x114.3

      Here's a picture of the wheels in question:




      Also, the set of BBS RSII's I had for sale was stolen out of the hatch of the car:











      I humbly ask anyone with any info to please contact me as soon as possible.

      Thank you all!

      Cool. I should be on 29th and apparently the couple that was splitting the room with me bailed so if anyone needs a bed I can split the room cost with ya. It's pretty cheap. Should be in town Thursday night thru Sunday.

      No one knew about the other wheels except myself. I honestly think they had planned to grab the ones i had on there and saw the others as a bonus.

      Dude. I might crash there Thursday night if that's cool? Obviously split the cost for that night. I have* a room for Friday and Saturday night though.

      *will have...it isn't booked yet.

      Swink. I saw that **** on Christian's Instagram. I can't really screenshot-repost on my phone otherwise I'd help you spread the word. That's wicked ****ty news. I ****in' LOVED those wheels on your car. I really hope you find them. I'll keep my eyes peeled, but I'd be surprised if I bumped into 'em up here.

      My advice is install the compressor, tank, management, wiring and air lines first. That way if you don't finish, it's not a big deal. You can still drive the car, no problem. Then you can throw the bags in and plumb them in an afternoon. And you're done.

      Just got the car detailed.

      Went to pay and the guy goes "I left the key in the ignition, didn't know how to remove it.".

      Did an inspection of the car.

      As I'm about to start the car, the genius left the car in Reverse and cut the car off.
