I have some wires I will send to you for free if you pay shipping. You would have to change the stock ends out though to the new wires. lol I got ripped off when I bought them. A guy told me they fit our car and I believed him. They didnt at all. The ends are different and need to be switched out. Just thought id throw that out there. :p They are red btw.

Now when I need plugs again I will go with e3s. Whatever I had now was supposed to boost mpg, but did nothing.

daang, that sucks. yeah i remember hearing something about how the prongs on the E3's are machined are supposed to be a lot better. i was looking into the taylor wire but i wouldn't want to order a universal one because.. well you know.
but i definitely need better mpg. i'm only getting 28.5

yeah i've noticed that too. you me and zx3bmx. i also have (installed by previous owner) the pieces that shoot out your wiper fluid. the part facing the front has a light and yellow tint. i wanna get these working and paint the back part black. and get yellow tint for the fogs to go along with it. it'd be different.

here's a thought for you. you have the matte black trim on the bottom of your bumpers; maybe paint them red with Fusion or plastidip. that would clean up the look. also, look into this. it's a fairly simple mod and could add to the look aswell.

i might just do that man. even though i love the red/black look. right now i'm masking some stuff off inside to do a little painting. red fusion paint and plastidip will be the colors. i hate the grey.
