MAPerformance has an AWD Dynojet, so literally anyone can come. So far, it's likely going to be $60 for three pulls, but if 20 poeple come it'll be $50. By the way the weather's going, this will be before any snowfall and before winter tires time!

Hopefully this sparks some interest! Whadya guys think?
I'll be there with my slow ass 325.

aquamist is a small nozzle that you mount by the rearview mirror, it sprays a mild mist at your face when it's too hot outside, it's really only useful when your car doesn't have AC because of the twarbo.

Hey, is anybody here willing to help me with my angel eyes? I just have a little problem, I connected everything together also the ECU wire tap and the angel eyes only worked for 2 minutes then stop working (but did look wonderful for those 2 minutes!). If anybody could help that would be great

I know this is a MN page, not a lighting page. But I thought to ask the fellow Minnesota fanatics first before making another thread. I can upload pictures if you guys want of the wiring/conntecting.

Also these are the two DIY I followed:

I found out what it was! I put the ground wire onto a bolt that the DIY said that it was suppose to work(it didn't). I just changed it's spot and put it on the OEM ground location.

Got it to work, and went for a little drive in the snow! Great night, thanks for your help man

Can anyone reccomend where I can get a killer alignment done?
My toe is out about 1 degree and I have a feeling that the shop isnt adjusting it correctly by loosening the 3 bolts on the upper trailing arm
