Can't really blame you for moving on.... gets kinda depressing when you see more of the car you drive in the junkyards than on the streets. Think the Alpine will be the last one for me also. Might keep it and make it a dedicated track car if I ever have a decent career and a house again. Thinking of...

A little too ricery for me. I believe wheel colors should complement the main color of a car. Not go with it by ways of painted lips or being the same color. Just over the top IMO if it's the same.

Man, that blows. If you do end up in Florida, there are plenty of cheap places to live, but from what I understand,...

Jason might need to handle that one. Sorry for the absence, i haven't had much time to get on here. I...

K-sports are junk, they have been tested over and over again and found to have ZERO adjustability. Plus they blow out after a few months.
