Of course I forgot it by the time we were leaving

Paid an extra $5.50 that I didn't have to

yea not sure about that. i know i'll be picking up the m3 one for sure. i can't buy the tips separately so there's no way to do a quad without that. i'll still route it to the side though lol

I remember why I don't like working on other people's cars. The oem csl trunk isn't an oem csl trunk. Gotta dremel out some fiber glass. And the kicense platelights were missing from the other trunk.

My friend already quoted the guy with the price so he isn't going to renig on it. Fail.

How's everyone's day going so far

Nope. I never give out tickets for bolt ons/cosmetic stuff. I used to have a 99 civic si which had numerous not so legal parts. Usually when I pull over a modified car, I'll make them pop the hood and then we'll talk cars for a bit. If they were cool, I usually let them go.

Nah. I honestly only go for "good tickets": speed, unsafe lane change, cell phone, etc. RARELY will I pull over mechanical violations. And if I do, I'm looking for something else (DUI, drugs, etc).
