That disconnected hose would have caused all sorts of problems with your MAF. Glad Austin helped you get it sorted. Where did you take the car?

I'm pretty sure you are required to take it to a certain dealership since you're part of the crew. ;)

Seriously though, where did you go?

Yea it did cause lots of issues. Austin did a great job. So when the car stalled on Eastlake I called my 24/7 roadside help covered by Allstate. The guy in the tow truck that came offered to take it to his garage and company he worked for. I said alright and it ended up being Speedway Collision Center in South Seattle. They did put in a great new alternator though. But yea, the fact that they didn't reconnect that hose means I'll obviously never go back and time to write some bad reviews online! Haha.

I'm taking it to Barrier soon for a full service that it's due for and a new timing belt since it hasn't been replaced yet and I'm at 108K miles. Going to Barrier simply because that's where it's always gone for services and such.

Speedway? I rolled by once to get a estimate and saw the place and didn't bother. For my money I would have just gone to Larry's in South Seattle.

terrible smelling? dead bodies in the corner?, old un-emptied outhouse next to the lifts? (not something I usually notice in a garage unless it's really rank)

Just really heavy B.O. mixed with auto smells. Nothing I noticed causing it.

Sounds familar.

Btw, autocross tomorrow at BMP, plus there is a big Subaru show on the other end of the air strip.

Should be a good day. Come out and have some fun. :)

Timing belt and many other fun things fixed and replaced today. Also picked these up from Matt last night. Since they were a steal and I'll only use them when absolutely necessary, I'm thinking I'll have some fun choosing what color to paint them. Candidates are dark red (simple, cool), dark purple (UW, goes with the gold), and dark blue. Open to suggestions though. Don't like the chrome and no use painting them black since I already have the black pegs. Looking plasti-dip them too. Anyone know of a good easy, cheap place around Seattle?

I still have too many wheels and am trying to simplify life.

Anyone want to buy the AMGs with tires? Open to offers...

Anyone in Seattle interested in replacing an O2 sensor for one of my customers? He thinks his might need to get replaced, but would prefer to pay someone than try to do it himself.

I won't be available until 8/15, 8/16 but I can get it done.

Larry's Volvo is a great place and reasonable price if he can't wait or if no one else is willing.
