I dont think I will, you mean the rear mount? Its awd so the angle gear is in place of that.

No. Not the rear mount, the side mount for the gearbox.

There are two different parts numbers for the mount, one for M58/AW42 and one for AW50. Your car being a '00 it should have the AW50 mount, no idea if there is much of a difference. As per the handbook(s) adjust this mount to prevent the car from pulling left or right under hard acceleration.

So after driving to Pittsburgh and back, gutting my mufflers, running some E85, and sleeping in late.

I present to you, some pictures.

And Steveo does BMac's tunes. Comparing the customers, I'd trust BMac more than Connor any day. This is not a reflection on Connor being a piece of shit or anything like that, but Ben has always been straight up with me with everything I've dealt with involving him.

Connor on the other hand hasn't been 100%, such as when he told me he was bringing me perfect mechanical and aesthetic front struts for my car, which ended up being a bit quicker return than expected and full of surface rust.

I am in no way bashing Hilton tunes or Connor's recommendation and knowledge, but for the reason that Ben has always been 100% trustworthy I went with a Steveo tune and am very happy. The fact that he easily got Tom's car running is just icing on the cake.

i agree on all counts. Connor is shady to me. Stevo is straight up tells you how it is and holy shit does it work. He said if i ever want any revisions or anything let him know or if its not 100% how i want it he will fix it. Hes a great guy, and really really knows his shit.

Popped onto a curb on an island in a parking lot the other night. Had a full car of annoying ass friends.

Didn't realize the island protruded so far will turning on to the spot. Wheels are fine though. Just not something I exactly planned on.

Video of the damage:

Apparently I can't post it embedded or whatever.

It's winter anyways. Besides, Olive/Emerald isn't super rare at the junkyards. You should be able to find something easily.

I feel you though... mine is missing the bumper grille/tow hook cover and it drives me crazy.

Yeah thats why I don't mind. Jack Chan said he'll be at the junkyard sometime this week and he'll keep an eye out for me.

Small lil update: I got a side skirt via Jack (Jippi) a couple weeks ago, still waiting to put it on though.

I also put on some stickers via Swedish Metal (http://www.storenvy.com/stores/315343-swedish-metal)
