You must live in a taxable value state. Good thing is you can use that as a tax deduction. We do ours by weight costs $70 a year no matter how old the car gets.

I did my first engine oil/filters change today , since the 6yrs warranty expired.
It was a real pita because the "skilled technicians" had previously overtightened the sump plug bolt and rounded off the corners.
Not a big problem, i will just buy a new one for the next oil change in 5000kms.

Perfect excuse to spend a bit more and grab a Fumoto oil drain valve and make oil changes less or a pain in the future. Cheers.

Feel like I drove entirely too much today. I don't mind putting pointless miles on it (I do that a lot just because), but not when it's through shitty weather and on shitty roads. Got it really dirty and it looks like it'll be raining these next few days so I can't even wash it. Exciting times

Just keep in mind that $400 probably includes a lot of different taxes/fees and technically you can only deduct the "property" tax portion.

True. I can't speak for other areas, but in Georgia its clearly itemized as to which part is what, if you have a legacy car that still is subject to property tax. In 2012 they switched to model here where it is an upfront vehicle 7% sales/title fee that you pay on registration and then done. My fees this year of 4 of my 5 cars is $20.00 each. The 5th (our '05 Mustang) will have a property tax assessed against it. Probably about $50 + $20.

Since i keep cars a while, the 7% upfront saves me money. Property tax was cheaper if you roll your cars over every 3 to 5 years.

Got everything done.

Cusco engine mounts.
AVO 3 inch down, over and mid pipe.

Nameless 3 inch exhaust no mufflers.



I had my test exhaust of the stock exhaust with removed mufflers and it was quiet for no mufflers. Was thinking a little louder would not be bad. This exhaust however is piss off the neighbors LOUD! I will live with it now and decide if I want to quiet it down later.

Cool start

Got inspection and registration and all that done this week. Also had this car for a year now and itís been incredible. No complaints whatsoever

Great clips @Grady Sounds pretty good. Iím going to go with a 3 inch exhaust when I upgrade since they sound great, but Iíll keep mufflers on. Iím sure yours is pretty loud in person huh lol
