I'll be back more regularly from this point forward.
    Or you can trade with me.

    We have the same year, model, and color. Mine is just stock.

    Is yours auto or stick? I'd consider selling you the aftermarket parts from mine, maybe swap suspension? PM me!

    In the last two weeks:

    After sitting on parts for nearly 2-3 years, I finally decided to install my <$40 (total cost) backup camera and clip on LCD mirror (hard mount via screws). Shopping for a cheap front cam since the LCD mirror has dual inputs so I prewired it for 2nd input.
    Also finally got around to change the valve cover gasket with a new Fel-Pro gasket.

    Current WIP, looking to mount a tiny amp with fan under radio.

    Lubed the caliper guide pins and bled the brake fluid at 108k-ish miles, about 40k miles after I last changed the brakes, fluid, and lubed the pins. Brakes seem to have plenty of life left.

    Also think my rear sway bar endlinks are bad. Letting the PB blaster soak in before I try to take them off and replace them since I couldn't get the top nuts to budge earlier.
    Completed mods: 15% tint all around | Class I trailer hitch | JKS Rear Spoiler | OEM bumper guard | OEM roof rack | Thule 872XT fairing | Hella Supertone Horns

    Great idea! Having a fellow enthusiast get a better deal whilst not giving away your mods. Kudos to you.

    I've still got them in the 5 BTW, still love them. Still happy with the mod. :-)

    No problem, It's not like I have my 5 anymore anyway! Very cool swap, I always considered something like that because I hated the 5 seats but never got to it. Fwiw, I'm the guy that pioneered the washer idea to raise the front

    Figured out why the headlights in the car pointed directly in front of the bumper instead of somewhere useful on the road.
    Answer: Whoever replaced the bulbs didn't use the retaining springs and the bulbs were just loose in there! F#$& the previous owner/their mechanic/whoever did that

    I replaced spark plugs. And also front windshield washer pump. Didn't remove entire front but squeezed my hand behind bumper after removing couple of screws and turning wheels all the way left. It is a 2008 GS. New plugs are bosh platinum.
