Talking

Towed my car to Southwest Bimmer for a starter replacement. Not in the mood to sweat out 10% body weight and get heatstroke from the 115+f Vegas Summer. Then possibley, RTAB and FCAB install, new summer F1 tires if the tire shop is still open, tire should have arrived. Rewire up my AE to LCM, then if I have time... tierod, tierod boot, sway bar bushing overhaul. Shittttt even throw in some touch up paint and carbon fiber decal. Then if I can stop time, I can even do my Xenon Foglight Projector retrofit....

Oh man... can't wait, car been imobile for a week due to ****ing starter, and one by one all my ****ing parts came in the mail.....:excite d:

You know you guys have your little click that likes to attack Mango. You guys never post in General. I know exactly what to expect when I see your names pop up in General.

So I ask that you and your gang/click/group of NorCal General Chat please stop PMing eachother to participate in a thread you never participate in just to disrespect me.

I am a contributing member and you guys know better.
A gang?




Back on topic, I must once again recommend the Permatex Extreme Brake Lube with ceramic to anyone doing brake work. Whether it's as brake-quiet or as lube. Excellent stuff. Just used it on the Sequoia. The big girl has noisy rear brakes for years and this did the trick.

Well when your right you're no need for humility. You sure wouldn't like me either or anyone else with a healthy amount of self confidence.

Mango is getting shot at due to his ignorance and negativity. There is no need to go crying to the higher ups every time you get messed with. You bring it on yourself then get upset... what is hilarious is how he's got his little fanclub to help fight his battles.

You know that the grand superpatriot stuff is just his sense of humor, right? I admit, it's not as refined as mine, but that's probably a good thing!

No sex for you...I'm sorry. I wanted you so badly too...now I'll just have to be satisfied with just Drew, Albeee, and Kalim. And no, not 'even' if you wear your beagle suit!

Here is where you are missing the point. That does not ENTITLE him to any respect. You garner respect by acting in a manner that commands it, and that doesn't involve throwing a temper tantrum when it isn't shown.

Ever stop to think maybe he has a "fan club" for a reason? Looking at your post history you have offered nothing to the community other than badgering people about what wheels look cool and giving a definitive DIY on how not to wet sand your paint.

Lack of humility only seems to bother people who themselves have no humility.

Zing. Nice one.

I'm astounded by the number of self righteous douchebags coming out of the woodwork lately.

I know it's been tried a couple times already, but back on topic? Maybe? The other stuff really should either be a separate thread, or PMs. I kinda like seeing what people are doing with their rides

My Ride: is slow
Yesterday, I replaced the gas cap, and fixed my license plate bulbs. The terminals were badly corroded and the bulbs blown. I don't think they've been working since I got the car.
