I understand man. I have to hear people tell me everyday how my car is ALWAYS in the shop and I should just sell it. It's depressing.

Well guys, I just got back from test driving the 2006 Civic Si.

The engine is pretty stout. 8,000 RPMs sounds pretty awesome and the gearbox is excellent. Car handles good too; however in the end it just isn't as good as the E46 IMO. Our car is far superior. Even if it is a piece of crap some days.

Nah. M3 or I'm just keep repairing this heap over and over again.

I couldn't go down in power lol

I told my wife when I get a new job I'm "celebrating" by buying Bimmerbrake headers and a tint job (my god does the car need it).

I must be lucky, or my time is coming. I have had the car for almost 2 years and have put 22k on her, and haven't had any problems at all. Every time I do some preventative maintenance, it appears that whoever owned it before me had done it already in the not too distant past. Just did the VANOS seals over the weekend.

Amen brother. OK. I'm gonna try one more time to get the e36 V8 tuned before C&C in august. The heat is a big factor. They don't want to tune it when it's over 90degrees. Which it has been for over a month now. If I can get it tuned next week that'll give me a week to clean'r up real good. I'm talking engine, engine bay, interior and paint. That's a lot of work.

Well I've already told my wife she better get ready for the car mods when I find my new position. I'm thinking:

Trunk mat (you know, responsible stuff)
Catless headers
Tint

Then I need to fix my interior bits and pieces. The age is really starting to show unfortunately.

Men, if you haven't changed your VANOS seals, do it. Changed mine a few weeks back. Prior to the seals, I was averaging 24.0 - 24.5 mpg. First tank after the seals was 25.2. Next tank was 26.2. Driving has been the same. I didn't notice any difference in power, but I'll take a 2 mpg increase ANY day.

Valve gasket leak repaired, brake pads replaced, all brake rotors replaced (fronts are cross-drilled), power steering fluid changed, brake fluid changed, and oil changed.

Ouch man... If I told you what it'd cost you on a DIY you may cry.

Anyways, a quick update from me. Seems the Louisville job market isn't working out the best for me. So I'm extending it to other states now, and maybe even international. I actually found a solid job in Dubai worth considering.

You'll have a hard time making it to the C&Cs from Dubai

It'll be tough, but I'll be there!!

Seriously doubt that will come through. I'm applying all over the place... CA, TX, etc.
