For a little background...

My first car was a 2004 saturn vue.
Manual transmission with an inline 4 that had a hefty output of 143hp.
It had a leather heated seats, power mirrors, and sunroof.

Everyone who knew me called it Clifford. It was an amazing first car and I still miss driving it from time to time.

Welcome...may i suggest if youre going to get downpipe and havent gone stage 1 yet..to just go straight to stage 2 as it only requires a downpipe and you have the intake already.

There's a really good chance I'll end up doing that!

Sad day for my GTI...

Hit a curb on a narrow road yesterday, the sound made me want to cry.

I did my best to sand/polish them today but it's still pretty bad.

I've been sanding a polishing for a good hour or so and it's almost not noticeable!

I also ordered my LED tails today so that cheered me up a bit

Tailz

A friend and I installed my tail lights today!

They're Depo Black Cherries from OnePerfectDose. They did end up throwing a code which wasn't supposed to happen, but I've got to check my connections with the voltage control boxes to make sure they're all fully plugged in...

The installation was faster than my CAI and I've very pleased with the product!

EDIT: Code's all fixed!
