    Back In The Game

    Congrats! Beautiful R!
  2. I bought a Green tune for my 03 V70 T5 during the Black Friday sale, but have yet to send out my ECU. How unfortunate, as I was really looking forward to getting the car tuned. I am going to request a refund...anyone have problems getting money back with ARD?
  3. Are most of the problems people have been having related to custom tunes (upgraded turbos, injectors, etc). I have an 03 V70 T5 and was looking into getting a Green (17psi) tune from Lucky, but this thread is scary.
  4. Wow, what a bunch of a-holes those bikers are. Riding like a-holes and acting like douches. There might be some blame on the driver of the SUV, but it's more so on the bikers. And the biker who got paralyzed...he was trying to help the driver? What's the driver supposed to think when he's got tens of bikers coming up to him and smashing his car and then this one odd biker is trying to help him? There's so much commotion going on against him, there's no way he thinks anyone's trying to help him.
  5. I actually have a buyer lined up...I'm just waiting to finish up registering my replacement car ('03 V70 T5) and this one will be sold. Probably by the end of the week. It's a great car, but it's def. under-powered. The cup holders are horrible and the door lock motors I've had to all replace.
  6. Not just a Honda Civic...a very luxurious Honda Civic lol. Leather and heated seats, sunroof, heated mirrors,etc. This has been my family and winter car for the last 3 years (1999 Acura 1.6EL Sport Premium): Extremely reliable...it was actually my vehicle of choice (over my T5M!) to get around town when I needed to run errands quickly. Handles great, it's automatic, and not lowered...that's why I preferred this over the T5M. If you guys have ever checked out Car Survey...I think this is the only vehicle that I've seen on there that has all smiley faces from reviewers: http://www.carsurvey.org/reviews/acura/1.6_el/1999/single-page/ But, I will be selling it after owning it for 3 years because we've outgrown it as a family. Bought it for $3,400 three years ago, and will be selling it for $3,000 probably this week.
  7. Anyone know when the Koenigsegg Agera R is going to be on Top Gear?
  8. The new Mercedes CLA AMG is pretty impressive. 4 cyl 2.0L Turbo putting out 355hp. An independant car magazine in the UK supposedly tested one at the track and the results were: 0-60: 4.1 seconds 1/4 mile: 12.5 @ 112 mph
  9. Trick question. That's not a woman. :lol:

    How Your Car Sits

    Nice! Looks a lot better with the R emblem off.
  11. A local JY has this thing every once in a while. $60 to enter and you can take as much as you can carry out. I think there's one 98 Volvo S70 (non turbo) in there...what would you guys take? More info here: http://www.upullem.com/used-auto-parts/auto-salvage-free-parts-day.shtml I'm looking for suggestions... I only need a couple of smaller things... Armrest, trim pieces, so I might have some room on my shoulders lol.
  12. The car looks sick, but I can't say the same for the R badge on the grill. :)
  13. No wonder they didn't make many of those. That interior color is hideous.

    How Your Car Sits

    Snapped an awful iPhone pic an hour ago:
  15. Mobile on laptop FTL. Only way i found to respond to PMs is to send a new PM to that memeber directly.
  16. I like those wheels but they're not light, as neither are Pegs.
  17. Really really nice! Using it with the iPhone.
  18. People come and go...no biggie. However, it's the Truth that is important. May the Truth prevail wherever or whatever it may be. :)
  19. It was a general statement, but I do have basis for it. My proof comes from the Quran, where the Almighty God describes those who call out to God when in desperate situations (in this case, out to sea), yet who don't particularly believe in God...as He is fully aware what is in everyone's hearts and He is the All-Knowing and the All-Hearing, He says: "He it is Who makes you travel by land and sea; until when you are in the ships, and they sail on with them in a pleasant breeze, and they rejoice, a violent wind overtakes them and the billows surge in on themfrom all sides, and they become certain that they are encompassed about, they pray to Allah, being sincere to Him in obedience: If Thou dost deliver us from this, we will most certainly be of the grateful ones. But when He delivers them, lo! they are unjustly rebellious in theearth. O men! your rebellion is against your own souls -- provision (only) of this world's life -- then to Us shall be your return, so We will inform you of what you did." (Quran, Ch.10, V.22-23) NOTES (by me): 1. 'Allah' is the Arabic word for the 'Almighty God'...for example 'Allah' is the word used for 'God' in Arabic Bibles 2. The words 'Us' and 'We' are the noble form of the words 'Me' and 'I'...for example, when the Queen of England decides to visit a country, she says: 'We will visit so and so place.'
  20. Great point, Justin. God willed this life to be a test. If He showed Himself to His creations, then everyone would believe. However, he has placed signs throughout the earth and the heavens, and even in our own selves...in order that those WHO THINK and PONDER may recognize God and His inifinte power. An amazing observation to note is that even the biggest self-proclaimed atheist when faced with death in the most desperate moment of his/her life (for example, a plane crashing or a boat sinking) will call out to God by saying 'Oh God!!' Never will you hear them say 'Oh Monkey!' or 'Oh Darwin!' This is something that God has instilled in our nature...deep down inside, we all know there is a higher force no matter how hard we try to convince ourselves otherwise. The truth of the matter is that God has sent Messengers throughout the human era in order to guide the people unto the truth after they have strayed. And all of the Messengers, ie. Prophets called to the same thing, which is the worship of One God. They would tell people: 'Don't worship the stones and statues, don't worship each other, but rather worship the One who created you and everything around you...the only One who truly deserves to be worshipped.' I don't wish to keep going (because I could honestly go on for hours, weeks, and months about this topic)...but, if you truly believe in the existence of God, then don't you think that He will guide you IF you sincerely ask Him? The call out to Him could be as simple as: "Oh God, if you're out there, guide me unto Your path!" It has to be sincere, and leave the rest up to Him. Wishing you all well!
