    New Wheels+Photo-shoot dump

    Got some new wheels about a month ago back in February and didn't get a chance to get a photo-shoot going for a while. To be honest, I didn't really see myself working this far into my car (with the tune, wheel fitment etc). I think I have fully achieved my OEM+ set up and I'm really happy with...

    VMR wheel cleaners

    Just bought my new VMR's about a week ago and cannot be more happy with them. Now buying the VMR V710's in hyper silver, I knew I was in for a cleaning challenge with the amount of spokes and hard-to reach areas. After researching a few threads, I conclude that the wheel and tire cleaners are...

    few shots

    I just played around with some shots in HDR. I normally try not to go too aggressive with the detail as I did with these shots but I found it rather interesting to explore a bit. And since Cali just got some rain, I finally got the chance to try the water reflection shot. [

    CEL flashing

    Today after school I started the car and noticed that my CEL was flashing. And after a few seconds it went away. Shut the engine off and started it again. And there was no CEL flashing. Based on the threads on this forum people claim that it could be (and most likely) Misfire on cylinder, bad...

    Exhaust Questions

    So when this semester is over, one of the first things I plan on doing is getting a cat-back exhaust... Specifically Eurojet or Magnaflow. Still debating. I just have a few things in my mind that need clearing up. Will the cat-back exhaust cause any CEL or Check Engine lights to go off? I'm...

    Am I getting a good tire deal?

    Well I'm getting to a point where my tires REALLY need to be changed for the first time at 48K miles. And I went to one of my local tire shops and got quoted for some tires. I told them nothing to fancy due to this economy, it is really important that I don't spend too much now a days. So I told...
