Congrats! Nice color choice on the SS. How's it to drive?

It's crazy how your FR-S on ramps still sits lower than the SS btw.

Agree, I could live with the looks, but 60 hp + CVT = not for me.

Top Gear was a great show and JC a great host, but I'm quite impressed at BBC for sticking to their principles and not taking the more lucrative path.

Haha I had to borrow my bro-in-law's car once and the bumper cover fell off so I drove around without it. You definitely get odd stares on the road. :D

I had a 350z. I thought it was a pretty good car, but if you're looking for that feeling of connectedness or agility, you won't get that with the 350z (or 370z).

I know what you mean about the shifter feeling rubbery. If your expectation is Honda shift quality (e.g., S2000 or RSX), you will be disappointed.

Ouch. There's not even that much torque on that bolt. :( The Fumoto valve is pretty nice though. Clean and leak-free. Good reason to upgrade.

Also I'm really doubtful that damage could have...
