Would the black finish on those hold up? How would they look after being removed and zipped back on a few times with an impact? The gloss black does look nice, but plastic covers may be the way to go.

Ok, so when going to look at the Garganzola Type-R V-Spec, arrive in the wife's dented, scraped, and dirty white on tan Toyota Camry. They won't see me coming until it's too late.

I'll be "that guy" and say Miata. For me, at that price, I'm focusing on the bargains that have a healthy aftermarket to support them. So MX-5, SN95 Mustang GT, or '90's Honda if I could find a good...

If you want to get the most out of FSDs you probably want to stick with stock springs. Due to how they function you might not trip the "soft" valving unless there's enough bump travel. If you're not...

I'd guess it's possible. I believe mine was built in June or July of '09, I bought it in October of '09.

The lower radiator hose is too much of a pain to get to. That and because it's about a third of the way up you can't completely drain it while it's on the car. So I flushed mine out by draining it...

You can get these cars for so cheap anymore going the eBay route kinda makes sense. But $1650 for a clean, bolt on upgrade like a CTS K04 is definitely not unreasonable.

Something to keep in mind is that because this is an electrical issue, we may not get the same exact symptoms between two different cars. Given that there are six wires going through the plug you...

It's about the same size as the filter they sell for the EVO IX, so I imagine it would flow enough for a K04 GTI. Also, it looks like the Carbonio filter has a similar filter surface area with the...

Not only does it work great, but it's even fun to use.

It's annoying that there's no way to easily drain all of the coolant from the car, but at least with this tool you can dump and fill a fair...

Have you tried a vacuum fill tool? Drain the coolant from the hose going to the secondary pump and top it off with the vacuum tool. Schwaben makes a good one, but you'll need a air compressor.

The aerodynamics and cooling systems on other cars are not the same.

If you're drag limited, as opposed to gear limited, more power means higher top speed so long as the limiter is removed. I can't imagine stage 2 over stage 1 adds all that much though.
