I installed my Alligator chips (thanks again Redrotors)! Then burned 1/4 tank and 50k worth of tread depth in a half hour

Hooked up the last wire of my Navi. Only took me 6 months to get around to doing it.

I installed my Euroswitch two days ago, and today did the DRL mod to them. I bent the tab. Love it

Drove it. Yesterday the winters came off and the summers went on. Cleaned the wheels before the installation so now the wheels sparkle and the car is dirty.

I replaced my driver and passenger side latch sensors last week and tonight get to try the passenger again because now it always thinks the door is open instead of always thinking it is closed (but it worked fine last Thursday after I replaced it...).

Oh last week also took off my winter tires/rims and put the all seasons on. But I hear it's going to snow again the weekend
