    Motorized JDM Foglights?
    Winner winner.
    I almost want to rig something like that up for my light bar but I'm too dumb and lazy to do so. (like cut the grille so its hinged on the light bar or something)

    Oh and on that note, this came the other day. I forget if I posted it.

    So today I took in this beauty, from a cliŽnt.
    This thing is lovely.

    Looks very modest for what it is.
    It's been tuned by MTM, and currently produces 700hp.
    Took it for a run on the Autobahn, with the cliŽnt ofcourse, and it does 0-200km/h in around 9 seconds.
    Wet weather though, and very windy today here in the Netherlands and Germany so we didn't do anything irresponsible.



    Edited:

    I'll have it for 2 weeks, and then it's going to be shipped off to Norway.
    Won't be driving it much though, since the contracts have already been signed and I don't want to risk damaging it.

    Edited:

    Ah I just googled. Looks like the cliŽnt embellished a bit.
    According to MTM themselves it does 0-200km/h in 10,8 seconds, and it produces 712hp.
    A8? Why is it being shipped up here?

    Close. It's a 2012 S8.
    It's being shipped up to Norway since a Norwegian cliŽnt bought it from me.
    Norway will be enriched with a 712hp S8 on the 30th of january.

    I stayed home because I'm sure some idiot caused an accident on the route I take to work (note I did work from home)

    I took a couple pics last week when it snowed:

    im in love with my 2005 mazda 3 i got with my own hard earned money. it has 220K miles but the people who owned it before took really good care of it and it was never in tropical or snow covered areas. I got it for 3.3K with the car being worth 5.3K~. all it needs are new tires eventually, and brakes.

    The guy who owned it put that plastidip shit on each silver emblems so i had to use a little amount of brake cleaner on a rag to rub it off, but the car has no accidents filed with it and has no damage. The best part about it is that the guy who owned it before put one of those aftermarket mufflers that make it sound much more sporty and not like a giant fart like most dickheads do around here. I just love sporty looking hatchbacks soooo much.



    This is what mine looks like, plus i got 80$ off the sales tax due to the mileage.

    it also has 25 combined mpg, with it only costing me 25$ at the pump to completely fill, shits the bomb.

    I had a dream the other day that I bought a new car. The car was lime green and some kind of mix between a 69 charger and an awd Subaru. I took it offroadiing and drove it right up a ski mountain. It took everything like a champ and was pretty damn fast too. Shame it doesn't exist.

    It's not visible rust. Trust me. You're looking for the spots where the roof was welded to the quarter panels. Those are now gone. I assure you - your best bet is to leave it alone until you want to do some actual body work, because there is going to be. Vinyl tops are garbage and they turn the roof below them into garbage. That's a 70s thing.

    I'm just trying to help you out. If it looks ok now, leave it alone. It will just look worse. Here's a buddy of mine I meet up with who took the vinyl top off his dart. He also saw no rust.

    Sorry if I came off as arrogant. The vinyl top is just irritating to look at because its split on both sides, a chunk is missing near the passenger side back seat's door, and the part where it goes around the back window is peeled up so far that it covers the bottom of the window. What do you think I should do if I were to be fully restoring the car? Like what would need done I mean. Or if there's some way of saving the vinyl top that's already on it, that's what I'd want to do.

    Since walmart has been dominating the market for all in one stores for quite some time now, they have now implemented a plan to slowly raise prices, without a fear of direct competition. I called this out years ago, but nobody wanted to listen.

    I only go to walmart for foodage and other random shit because it's less than a mile away from my house. The only automotive stuff I get from them is like cleaning stuff and other non-mission critical parts, like wiper blades.

    Well when I got in my accident what happened was I was turning and the car understeered into a curb and then kept going forwards until it hit a traffic light. So it hit a curb with the wheel pretty much exactly sideways going about 30-35 mph, which put all 4600+lbs of car right into that tie rod.

    If the tie rod is all that's fucked, you're pretty lucky.
    You can just pop it out of the socket and get a new one.

    It took you that long to turn your wheel all the way outward and just take a quick look.....? Like, a bent tie rod is obvious as fuck.

    Rumors say the challenger's replacement will be another let down. :(

    A smaller RWD car with no retro styling. I don't know how I feel about that replacing the Challenger.

    Agree for louvers

    Of course finding good looking factory louvers will probably be impossible.

    No, it took me this long to jack up the car to start working on getting the bodywork off and suss out what's what. I knew the steering was broken from crawling it home after the accident, I just didn't look to see for sure what it was. My car looks weird with no face.



    It appears the entire front clip is bent and probably needs to be replaced. Might need a frame straightening as well, but I'll let the mechanic determine that.

    Leaving it plugged in on a newer car can cause some issues because your BCM is constantly powered up/trying to read what the hell you jammed into its OBD port. (There's TSBs out on this for GM fleet vehicles)
