    How much did that run you? did you have to go to a shop or DIY? I need this bad because I have repainted my lip literally like 5 times hahaha I am repainting it again and I hope this is the last time I will have to do it. I wanna add this on after I paint it before reinstalling it

    Don't lose that mod bug! I don't do much in the winter either though, the garage is well insulated but my hate for the cold knows no bounds. Though it has been in the 60's lately and I am very thankful.

    ^ Yeah, man.. I'm trying not to loose that, but it's just hard these (fawking cold) days haha. I bought the portable heater for my prospective DIY projects in my garage, but instead, it's in my room, warming up my feet atm lol.

    My prospective mod plans are pretty certained to be pursued, but the maintenance is the first priority here, such as replacing engine gaskets, spark plugs, valve clearance, AT fluid change, wheel alignment, new battery & wiper blades, and possibly 4 new tires as well...

    The first 4 things in the above will be done next wk for sure, but.. Man, so much stuff (for me) to get them done before I mod anything. Well, at least my "maintenance bug" is still kicking in tho.

    In 60's over there!? That's awesome! :love:

    haha

    Well it's in the 40's now, but supposed to jump back up into high 50's/low 60's next week. Thanks El Nino!

    At some point I want to get all my suspension bushings replaced. With the car being 16 years old and lowered a decent amount, it would probably be a good thing to do.

    ^ The heater is taken by my wife, who's wrapping some Christmas gifts in front of me atm lol.

    It might snow tomorrow / the day after! Possibly a white Christmas this year.. Sounds cool, but... Snow... sigh..

    Good call. Makes me want to be aware of that as well. :boink:

    Just had the aforementioned service & parts replaced.

    (It gets so busy during the holiday season, and I literally couldn't do anything besides mainly working. I even had to postpone the service for a while..:( But I could save some $ for this. :))

    Before this, the engine seemed a bit strained. And, what a difference it makes after all. :) It feels like the car wants to accelerate forever, as I step on the paddle. (That's how it should be lol.) Well, the goal is to keep her running healthy, but my J30A1 is now telling me that I don't need the J32 swap lol.

    My mechanic told me that all of my ignition coils were clean. All coils had no signs of any wear or damage, so he didn't need to use the Denso's coil. I take it as a good news, meaning that the previous problem as been permanently resolved. :peace:

    ^ Yeah, pretty pessimistic, right? I do want the J32, but this refreshed engine's telling me not (for a while). :33: Thank you, sir! (Although I'm from Japan, my parents are Christian and I celebrate Christmas, too. :)) Enjoy the rest of the '15, and have a happy new year! :cheers:
