window 130
key 10
fcab 150+?
spark plugs cheap
air fliters cheap
diff fluid 50?
tires 600?
alignment $80
floor matts (can i buy just the drivers? all others are perfect) 100?
dice unit is on it's way out the door 150?

Of course the tires are the majority of that, but it's still annoying. Who carries the dice units? I thought I got it from EAS but I don't see it listed on their site

I like my iPhone setup. I wired a cigarette lighter outlet thingy mabobber behind the glove box ($10), stuck a USB charger in it ($5), and had the OEM Aux input kit ($30) then got something like this for $7 http://www.amazon.com/iPhone-Cable-C...ref=pd_sim_e_5

The only befit you get with Dice is the steering wheel controls and the info on the display. But I have the clock displayed on my radio so it doesn't matter. It charges and plays with pretty good clarity. Only problem is my iPhone was dropped and now won't play out of the charge and sync port

I have the dice right now, but I constantly have to unplug it and plug it back in. I wonder if i can swap it out for a fee. The biggest thing I liked about it was still having steering wheel controls to go through songs.

Front rotors still look brand new so those stayed.

Rear slotted rotors. Free

Pads were probably like 50-80 for front and rear

sensors were a few dollars each?

smallest I can fit is 18" but with my csl reps I had to add 10mm spacers up front so now i have a little mexi-poke. I really want to go back to a 16" rim, but it's not worth taking the brakes off.

Even with tires, that's not too unreasonable.

Cheap, quick, and easy. That work should be a perfect match for you.

So I'm kinda screwed right now. I told E30 Nate I'd do some welding for him this weekend, but I forgot to pick up my welding safety gear from my locker at school. Trying to get in contact with people I know at school to help me out. Ugh...

On the positive side, at least it's raining.

I also need to buy a new external hard drive. Currently my 1TB drive is at 900GB, and this is a wireless storage and backup drive, so now that the backup software sees there is only 10% storage left, it's continually deleted the oldest stuff to make room for the newest. It's slowing down everything... wireless and my laptops own hard drive performance.

Luckily, a 3TB drive costs as much as the 1TB drive back when I bought it. Yay!

Also, I highly recommend Seagate's nicer drives that come with the 2 year warranty. Super reliable.
