As usual, I'm down.

Thinking about getting my car tinted this Thursday either Ozone or Sierra's since they are both fairly close. My buddy got his BMW done at Sierra's and looks like they did a great job.

Steve whats the news on the Roush, no damage I hope?!

seemed quite pointless to have only 1 car the wife could drive. We needed something a bit more reliable and had all the things we could ever want. It's a certified used, so the powertrain is warranted to 100,000 miles and i bought an extended bumper to bumper warranty and that goes to 120,000 miles. It also uses the same oil filter as the 6, so oil changes will be quite easy.

Only things extra that i've bought for it are, all weather floormats, all weather cargo tray, Color matched fogs and hi-beam lights, HKS SSQV BOV. I plan on splash gaurds and 35% tint on the front and 5% on the sunroof, when all the other things we've bought have been paid off. Maybe throw the rx8 wheels i have on it.

Everything that was on the f u k u s is for sale, there may be more, whenever i get around to remembering it all.

Blacked Out HID's
Euro Grill
Black Colaspable Drivers Mirror
Volant Intake
SVT Snorkle
2003 Intake Manifold (stock)
SVT Gas, Brake, Clutch Pedal
SVT E-brake & Boot
04 SVT 17's w/ Yokohama S Drives
Tinted 00-04 Sedan Tails
Focus Sport UDP w/ Belt
Steedea Tri-Ax STS 02.5 and up

The car is actually for sale down in Wooster. Far enough away that hopefully i WON'T see it around:

Clicky Clicky
Clicky Click Click
Vehicle report <<Never been in an accident?!?

They also want $9,500 for it bwahahahahahaha

Funny story about my old car while it was on their lot, two of the sales staff took it to lunch last week. The guy driving it, got upset with traffic, dumped the clutch from what i'm assuming is redline and ripped the drivers side axle out and also messed up the transmission. It had to get towed back to the dealer. Talk about getting out while the gettin is good. The owner is none to pleased with the deal, but hey, it's not my fault. Everything was working when i sold it, as well as when the sales manager test drove it multiple times as well as beat on it w/o any issues. Stooopid sales staff.

For those that don't know:
2008 Mazda CX7 AWD GT
2.3L DISI Turbo (244HP & 268 FT/TQ)
Card Key (don't have to have a key in the ignition to start it, just somewhere in the car and somewhere on you to unlock the doors)
HID's (the different height settings)
Leather
Heated Seats
Auto Climate Control
Sunroof
Bose Sound System
6 Disc MP3 Player
Sat Nav
Backup Camera

There's prolly more, but that's really about all i can think about right now.

Congrats on the upgrade Devin! Couldn't help but laugh a little when I scrolled down to the first picture and noticed the color.

I never knew your Focus had such low miles on it.

You have no idea how many CX7's have a crappy tan interior. This was about the 2nd or 3rd GT AWD i found with black interior, it came out of Vermont. I've been looking for since the first of the year and found this one in the beginning of May. So far some interior pieces were replaced, new valve cover & PCV re-routed due to smoking turbo (common problem) and a bad tire. Hopefully these are the only problems i'll have, but if not, it's all covered under warranty.

My Focus had low miles due to the fact that the wife didn't like riding in it and couldn't drive the car. So it basically sat a lot for the last couple of years. So there wasn't a point in keeping it. I actually got right around what i wanted for it, $4,500. which i think is a fair price for an 03 that was shockingly maintained.

yeah you can have your camera mount back

I really didn't want to get rid of it, but keeping it wasn't really in the cards. If i had more time and money, i would have kept it. I really liked that car.

No shit. I remember helping you make that camera mount. I'd mount it on a plaque and hang it on the wall.

Sad to see the focus go but I'd say you got a nice upgrade.

Far as the Roush is concerned.......... It's sitting in my back yard with the grill out and the plastic fender guards hanging because we tried to take the front bumper off and couldn't. The car dolly sat a lil too high so when we tried pushing it onto it it beat the he'll out of the bottom of my bumper. Luckly it didn't break it or crack it. I didn't getna chance to look at it yesterday because it took so long to get my buddy and his car dolly up to where I was. He towed me home with his 2004 1ton supercharged Hemi dually. I'll more than likely tear into on Wednesday. We're gonna try and order a harmonic balencer and put a new idler pulley on and hope to god that when it got hot that it didn't warp the head or mess up the internals.

Sorry for the run on paragraph lol
