^ thank you for the support reply!

Current update: Car didn't start again after attempting to leave a friends house the other night, temperature has been around 10-25 degree range. Hoping the slightly warmer weather tomorrow will help get the car started, everything wants to turn on. Going to try a new solenoid to see if that will help it. Replaced a lot of things and double checked a lot last year for it, trying to pinpoint this huge annoyance once and for all.

Default 3 year mark!

Officially owned this car for over 3 years. Beyond happy and grateful to have made it this far, has not been an easy journey, and I thank everyone who has helped me get here, couldn't have done it without all the support.

Cold start issue: After having a new starter installed, the car has been starting a lot smoother (sounds brand new), and easier in the cold. Lowest degree it has started recently was 18 degrees, hoping it will keep at it, even if it dips lower range. Also had 3/4 SS brake lines installed ( 1 caliper got stuck, bleeder broke.), and a fresh castrol gtx oil change.

Under hood plans: Once the winter ends, I'm going to try and get a better N/A set up going, with headers, a test pipe, LWC pulley, on top of my current STI exhaust, Injen intake, and K&N air filter, for a mean sounding daily that can pull hard, and still get around or over 30mpg highway.

Happy holidays all! excited to see some great builds this year.

Back to the Salt mines, with a snowstorm Last Saturday, and another one this Tuesday:





Drive safe everyone!

The New England snow continues with another February storm and brisk temperatures. Car started today in -12 F, which is a new record with all the cold start issues in the past. Things checked and accounted for: nearly full/ full tank, using dry gas with every fill up, good battery, fuel pump, fuel filter, spark plugs, new starter, good alternator. Spring needs to get here asap!

Another update: Car doesn't start at 3 degrees, or 15 yesterday for that matter, but started in -12 the other day., tried several bottles of dry gas and full tank premium, nothing =/, getting very frustrated with the vehicle, phone managed to break yesterday too, and had to call out of work twice, at this rate a for sale ad might be posted soon.
