The Jetta however on bald all seasons was clearly a different story lol

edit:

Remember that 90% of the people who see in ditches on the side of the highway are trucks and suv's driven by people who think they have monster trucks and can drive anywhere because 4 wheel drive brah

Gardner if you think snow is only a little less grip you're in for a rude awakening. And ya the po knew the limits... its one thing to be in the passenger seat at the limit, totally different actually driving at the limit.

Good luck, seriously.

Courtney has a jacuzzi sweet booked for I think friday night? maybe saturday night, can't remember which. but one day will just be her and I hanging out in hottub. other day will be all the snowboarding!

also I'm going to miss the e36 this winter. was so much fun driving that in the winter because I could just kick the back out and walk it around corners whenever I wanted.

maybe I can con Courtney into driving Subaru on days we are supposed to get a blizzards!

Hanging out in the hot tub the whole day? That's a lot of semen... just saying.

I'll be out on the mountain having fun both days and then using a different hot tub at night. Also you have a room booked already? nothing like planning ahead eh lol

Also making her drive pooparu would be funny.. Haven't seen her drive anything beat since the wagon

Hey guys,
I kno this isn't really isn't the place for tech stuff, but has anyone here replaced their Clutch Master Cylinder? I got out of work yesterday to discover a puddle fo brake fluid in my floor mat. I'm running into a snag when it comes to removing the clips that hold the fluid line into the CMC in the engine bay. Is there a secret to getting these off?
