Washed it, Checked all & tightened one of my coil's collars, detailed the engine bay, and made sure my tool kit and fire extinguisher are where they are supposed to be.

Lucky you.. we can't get 4S 17inchers in the UK. And even if they were available they would probably cost double what you are paying..

Now that is a nice looking wing. Not over the top with brackets that look like they came off the Eiffel Tower structure.

Yea, I like it too. I think if it were my car though I'd wrap the lower lip in CF to make it match.

Removed a cigarette butt from the trunk lid this morning. It left a brownish spot on the paint. APC didn't do squat to remove it. I'll have to try some polish tonight.

This is why I can't have nice things.

This is why cars need to come with automatic flamethrowers. That would be such a wonderful sight, someone goes to damage your car and boom, they die a beautiful fiery death.

Thought my car was handling a slightly weird on my drive home from North Carolina yesterday. Figured maybe a tire was low or something, but didn't notice anything visually wrong when we stopped for gas. Figured that since I didn't have a flat, I could at least get home fine and worry about it later. Got home, still didn't notice anything visually wrong. I should've actually checked the pressures then, but I had been driving for 7 hours straight and just wanted to relax. Walked out this morning to find my tire almost completely flat. Guessing the tires being warm helped keep most of the air in them on the drive yesterday and it went flat overnight after it had a chance to cool down. Anyway, went and got a plug kit and fixed it in my driveway before work.

Exactly how I wanted to spend my first morning home from vacation...
