The H&R cup kit is nice, but won't likely last as long as the coils (which are nearly new).

Hard to tell because of the lens in the second shot, but there looks like there was a little drop.

I'm going to tell you a few things and let you make your own decision.

-The friend who spotted me a few nights back when I was out buying cheesecake ingredients was driving his girlfriend's GTI. She was riding shotgun.
-He drives an E36 (when it's running)
-Does your momma know you're ?
