    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Called my mechanic to check on Betty. He's been swamped and hasn't made any further progress tracking down the second short. Since I'm going out of town next week, I told him I was in no rush. The day I return is also payday so I'd rather have a little more in my wallet for when I have to empty it.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    totaled my safari van yesterday night. I was going down a hill in the pouring rain and had no traction (attempting to brake resulted in a loss of traction). a hyundai a few car lengths in front of me stopped at the intersection at the last second right as the light turned yellow (still had plenty of time to go through). I had no traction whatsoever and hydroplaned into it doing about 40 mph. I was able to swerve at the last second and my left front hit the hyundais right rear. ended up punting the hyundai about 15 feet into the intersection. destroyed the core support, left front fender, left side structural support, bumper, hood, and grille on my safari.

    ..............you know damn well that washing/detailing a car is the modern equivalent of a primitive rain dance.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Took the car through one of the Shell car washes yesterday since it was so dirty and I have no place to do it at my apartment. Today I plan on throwing some wax on the headlights to clean them up and maybe if I get bored I'll spray wax the car.

    Are you OK? Did you have little tread left on your tires?

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    i cant remember if i posted my mexican compass or not, but i made another. my bose amps in the allante decided to blow all at the same time, which was the ultimate motivation to finally get off my ass and put the kappa perfects in. (last night on the way home i found myself singin "alll the way turned up" by soulja boy after wondering if the amps blew cause my gf had the radio "all the way turned up")

    anyway, i used a thin board to mount the 6.5's and tweeters onto, but needed to cut the right size hole. used this compass, a hole saw and a jigsaw to get the job done

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    I was ok (my neck, back, left arm and left leg hurt bad). as for the other driver- I'm not sure. she was able to drive (although I'm sure she is gonna be feeling like crap for a few weeks).
    whats really odd is after the wreck I drove a mile and had to pull over because my tire was rubbing on the core support. well, when the tow truck came I went and walked into a doctors office to use the bathroom (I had been parked behind the office). when I walked to the front of the parking lot, what car would be in the lot but the hyundai that I had hit. So I walked in anyways, and who would be sitting at the reception desk except the lady who owned said hyundai? it was totally eerie and freaky.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    First time since before I sold the V that I washed a car entirely by hand. I forgot how much it sucks cleaning cars/wheels with brembos.

    Holy cow! Enough with the washing the BMW (Car) every other day; I don't think the Midwest can absorb any more rain!
