Haha, yes. However, I was happy to have a mod that I could actually DIY without instructions!

Well, maybe.

I took a turn on the Jackie at 45 mph in the second turn and it started to drift to the left while the steering wheel was going to the right. I have a vid from my dash cam but it doesn't show how bad it was.

I'll post a vid in a bit

Naw, my door handles are silver. Kinda a tribute to my old e46, and partly because I'm too lazy to paint them.

Im curious to the reception of frosted trim, I'd rather not get flamed afterward. Rofl

I know! And mine is stuck completely open I'm betting so if I jump on the freeway it cools back down. Hopefully will be into my new shop for detailing tomorrow so I'll have a space to do work in this snow.
