    Talking What did you do to/for your car today?

    I've seen this idea on a few other forums and thought it might work on here for those that don't have time or don't want to start a build thread, and even for those that have a build thread and just feel like posting one simple thing.


    I started soldering the wiring harness for my new headunit for the wagon and forgot the video bypass and steering wheel controls and had to add them in later.

    Re: Why did you do to/for your car today?

    Great idea for a thread and sucks you forgot a few wires but it happens.

    I have done a bunch of stuff to the wrx the past two months, no pictures of any of it.

    did some badge removal, installed rokblokz short mud flaps, added a cricket classic wrx badge to the front grill, plasti dipped the rear wrx badge red, k&n filter for now, installed windows visors......completely forgot the clips and had to get them on after all visors had been installed lol! Installed red pinstripes on side skirts, rear bumper, mirrors, hood scoop and grill oh and inside the hood scoop on the four fins. Pinstripes was my first attempt ever and they aren’t perfect. Will need to redo a couple. Also did red pinstripes inside the car along the dash and all four doors.

    now I need to get the dents removed and scratch/ scuff marks removed.

    Brought my daily into Gore Motors this morning to get the ECU updated. Maybe I'll get some extra hp's and launch control. Great thread Nabs!

    Decent thread idea, I drove my car to work.. and then back home.. that's all I do anymore. Had an existinal crisis while thinking about whether or not I should try to work on the truck, ended up having a depression nap, now it's 4:30am, might as well go to work..

    One day I'll have a decent update.. one day..

    Shoved a bunch of parts back into the wagon


    Finally registered the wagon and the X5, kept the BEWB plates for the wagon.

    That’s a lot of parts nabs! Are they future upgrades, old parts or a big mixed bag of nuts? Lol!

    All just parts from the car when I disassembled it, I just had to throw it back in the car to clean up the garage

    I threw RS4 wheels on my b5 and kicked a goat out of the back seat. Does that count?

    That counts, but I have one question. What's with you and those goats?

    They are just funny ass creatures that get in the way man. The chickens and ducks are going to be fun when they are big enough to go outside too.

    I always get a kick out of those goats. Huge perk to owning a wagon is tons of space in the back for parts!

    Re: What did you do to/for your car today?

    Ordered an iPod integration kit for the M3 so I can use the radio and steering wheel controls to change songs and see the info on the radio



    Also picked up a heated steering wheel for the wagon since the old style one in the 540i won't work in the face lift models.
