Yeah, I thought about that after I posted it. Oh well. It will get some clear corner love soon from JDMGary. One has been cracked since I got the car; figured it was time to replace it. I also need to touch up a few chipped spots on it. That should be soon as well. Well, hopefully, wife is due any day now so that will probably take priority.


edit: figure I'll throw my late submission for May's garage pic in here. You can see one spot that needs filling on the left/center side of the hood. Also the grill. The paint is flaking off the lip in several places too.

Oh, you can't have a 2-door car anymore then... might as well sell it to me

I'd seriously fly up there and drive it back to VA for you =)

Best of luck with the kid though, that'll be exciting =)

You never know, could be for sale someday. I haven't decided that yet but it's always a possibility in the future (not near future so no one PM me about it). I figure if I move past this car I'll keep the Leggy for a long time and maybe move to an E30 M3; always wanted one of those. Now, to win the lottery or something so I can buy everything I want! I guess I need to start buying tickets then tho...

Boredom, some extra wood, an underutilized corner of the garage, and extra set of tires taking up floor space lead me from this:

I think I'm going to throw the v7's on the Leggy, haven't seen that but also haven't really searched around for it...

I ended up scrapping the v7's on leggy thought. I'd really like to pick up the oem 5 spoke lgt wheels once my current tires need to be replaced.

On the RS front, I've driven it a decent amount lately. Such a change of pace from the leggy. I was experiencing some boost leak issues on the way home a couple days ago. I didn't have time to diagnose it that night though. I did the soap water test and then a shakedown and now it's not leaking...? Hmm, something to keep note of though. I'm going to start data logging some runs to investigate further.

Bracing question for everyone: I'd like user reviews of Cusco's chassis braces, the front lower subframe one and the rear one. Also thoughts on the beatrush rear diff brace. Is it super whiny? I definitely understand its going to whine; just not sure how much.
