nope nope nope. Just a Dollar store non abrasive type. And used very lightly with lots of soapy mix like a clay bar. Tried the clay bar even and that didn't work. I tested a small spot first to see if it disturbed the bumper paint and my tender finger tips were satisfied

No, a few weeks ago I had a strange thing happen where the resevoir basically drained itself. Suspected the water pump at first but I drove back to IL from NC and didn't lose a drop. That had me scratching my head. Another user suggested it might be the resevoir not making a tight seal and having it slosh out on the track. I suspected that might be the issue so I replaced it. I'm not sure that was it though as it didn't seem to be leaking after I took it off and put it upside down etc. I think I have a gremlin somewhere.

New coolant reservoir (found leak in testing after timing chain work), put panels back on from timing job, got new oil pan installed (2nd time, so far no leaks!) with my first upgrades (ecs magnetic plug and oil sensor cover). Got all previous codes cleared with odbeleven and car seems to be running great, first time driving it in weeks. Thanks again for all the help @Tony48!

After reading about a few of these cases, I opted to not go with Stratified myself.
I went with Freektuned and saw revisions reliably 5-7 business days after sending logs.

These are getting installed Friday. Should give the OEM exhaust a little extra bling to go along with the extra sound.



Mother efin deer ran into the side of me. Got a tiny dent and scratch. Probably not worth the deductable but I'll get it looked at.

Those look great. What brand are they? The tips that came with my Beluga exhaust don't look as good as these.
Sorry to hear about that deer

Jones Exhaust. Got 2 of them from Summit for $37 shipped. Clicky JST139.It's hard to find tips that are short enough. Found an old thread on MK7 forum of guys using these. Don't know how they will hold up to winter but for the price figured wth. They feel very solid and well made for the price.

Thanks. Hit a deer about a year and half ago in my Fit and caused 3-4k in damage. From how hard it sounded like it hit, the car held up well. Japanese steel VS that German tank steel lol

I took a pic but it's hard to see. It basically dented the hard line around the fender area. The deer looked up, stopped eating and just starting running across the field at me.

The site says they're weld-on tips. Do you think there's enough of a lip to grab with an exhaust clamp? I'd love to see a photo once you get them installed.

All good. True story.. my lil brother (rest in peace Bro) talked my other brother into washing his first car (green '92 Camaro ) with a SOS pad cause it was really dirty. I really wish I had the pics to show you those swirl marks. Mike chased Dwayne to the gas station almost a mile away after he rinse the soap off.

I'll definitely be posting up a pic after they are installed.

Ummm I doubt you could get a clamp on there. It is also pretty thick and won't compress much. I'd be worried they might not stay on very well with a clamp. The shop quoted me $20-$40 to install both if they are just cut old ones off and weld new ones on, which they really should be.

This past weekend I swapped my front coilovers around so the endlink tabs are facing the front of the car instead of the back. Now the endlinks I have are too long to fit so i'm not running any until I get new ones. I did develop some rather loud clunks though so I gotta get under there to try and figure out what they are for the 5th time. BBK getting here tomorrow, although probably won't be a while until I get that on. Also making big cuts to the amount I spend on my car in order safe for a house, feels bad.

Yeah man, the Cobb tunes are very very conservative. I used to run an AP/strat tune and full Cobb bolt ons but last year I sold it all and went full Unitronic bolt ons. Why? Because I like spending retarded amounts of money on shit thatís basically the same. With that said, uni k04/dv relocation will be in around Christmas.
