Blaines a man of few words. He plays off the old expression, a picture is worth a thousand words.

But seriously I'm also curious.

Adam, I put VWR springs on the MK7 this weekend and it was a breeze. For the fronts I used the 2x4 method and it worked like a charm, just remove 2 bolts and jack the strut out. Hell, you don't even need a spring compressor. Rides like stock, I would suggest going the VWR springs route.

Someone was probably aiming at that retarded sticker on his bumper, thinking they were doing him a favor by removing it, and missed.

That's my guess

Thanks, man. Yeah, still planning on VWR. Good to know it's an easy process. I really don't want to pay someone to do it.

I got my OBDeleven in the mail on Friday and turned off the soundaktor. Night and day difference in Sport and Manual modes. Next I need to work on the mirror dip in reverse, but I don't have a memory module in the passenger door, so it may be more work than it's worth.

Blaine hydroplaned and slid into the back of his girlfriends car, totaled his FRS, bought a 2017 BRZ.

You're welcome.(that's really what happened, he told the group chat on FB)

What he should have done is buy back his old one and build a racecar (broken record... I know). I'm just sad to see it go.

If you use the spreader tool, it will come out easier

Figured it was something embarrassing since he wasn't saying anything on here. To be fair, the roads in CA get really slick when it rains because of how rarely they get rain

Probably should add him,

blaine needs someone to make him feel like less of a fuckup right now.


a person who took out a loan on a 15 year old focus and then traded it as negative equity while buying 3 transmissions for a two dollar car and texting about a second date before the girl drove 2 miles away from the first one sounds like the kind of person to fit that role breathe period
