Hey fellow e46 dudes!! First post time. Today I went to to auto store to buy transmission fluid, diff fluid, and some vacuum hose and on the way back home I watched as a ***** in a dumpy civic get pulled over by a cop! It gave me a good laugh Hopefully I will get my fluids all drained/filled tomorrow.

Got bored and decided to clean my engine bay since it was nice out today. I demonstrated to my neighbor how clean it was, by placing my sandwich on the engine cover and eating it.

I replaced leaky VCG with all of the grommets, rear shocks, and FCAB. Finally saw 172,000 mile heads. They look clean!

I need to do this! What source did you use for ordering the speakers? How was the install? Plug and play?

Hk systems off a friend's parts car. Everythings plug in play but the factory subwoofers. I have a 12" alpine type r in the back anyways so the subwoofer isn't needed.

The sound through the tweeters and midranges is much clearer and its a very nice tone compared to non hk.
