Frank drives a frankenstein 325i in which he cannot lower his window to pay the parking attendant and needs to use the rear window or moonroof
Finally got the obd or cluster flashed so it doesn't light up like a christmas tree (might be mixing this one up a bit)

And Romeo drives a wannabe ZHP 325i auto with ZHP wheels and a ZHP front bumper. lol, we're like family!

Meh, he was just getting annoying. Not like I'm blocking his calls or emails or anything, and it's not like it's affected any of the car work that's been going on concurrently. I just got tired of seeing his jokes about my hobbies and family.

Those are just mods
Conveniently ignore the fact that I own my car fully paid off and it is fully functional?

(Although I do need to get my trunk handle opening mechanism checked out)

Long day It started at 6:30 this morning. Will post pics on FB when I get home. 300 miles of driving. The Sequoia makes for a good tow vehicle - decent torque, decent brakes, even decent mpg, and the long wheel base makes for good stability.

My dad told me last night that he wanted a tablet for when he travels. We went to look at some today and he liked the Nexus the most. I got one on sale for $230 shipped (vs $250 + tax at most places). I think I got a good deal. Once the new Nexus comes out, I'm sure I can sell this one for a very small loss.

Oh Jesus you are a pussy. It took you 30 mins to remove 4 pieces of tape? No wonder you haven't graduated yet.

Given everything it's actually hilarious you're still dealing with aftermath. If you understood nature of interference practical jokes you'd understand why but I know better now that you're in sensitivefriendzone.

I guess I'm on my own there. Picture below is black on grey so they stand out a bit. Black on black, they blend in well.

I have black on grey as well. Contrast is fine.

By "stick out," I mean you look at them and think/say, "wtf is that?" (i.e. Albeee's hand-cut, no-edge finish, low-grade plastic pieces of yuck).
