You got it!

It's RTFM time, lol. I'm still learning new stuff with my car and it's almost been 2 weeks already.
Yeah Portimao is pretty, and I seriously considered it but then decided on Mineral White which I don't regret. Yeah not a ton of room in the back of a G20 for sure, but decent compared to some.

Yep. Then he wadded it up during a crosswind takeoff attempt at the close of the Reno Air Races. I heard rumors that he plans to rebuild the airplane even better.

Well I guess if that's your drug and you can afford the addiction then go for it. It's not my thing but hey, I bought a n54 xDrive auto E90 as a toy so who am I to say anything, right?

When you have a project, all your possessions are in a storage unit 250 miles away and you’re tired of borrowing...

All the damn time. I'll start working on something, realize I don't have the tool I need (that I own), call a buddy and ask if I can borrow theirs, go pick it up and realize the reason I can't find mine is because they had it.

Eibach Pro V2 lowering springs. I'd show the box...but I had to burn it. Ask in front of my wife, it never happened.

Yeah, already put it to good work tearing up some old flooring as well! That thing was a life saver!

Tried this and just returned it. Too weak. Need to stick with corded shop vacs.

REI run landed me with Marmot Castle Peak snow pants, Altra Lone Peak 4.5, TC Pro climbing shoes, and an OR rain hat.

Even more ready for my climbing trip this weekend now 😄

The snow pants were in the Garage due to a small cut near the pocket which I just patched as seen in the pic. Worth the $375 savings.

I like the first one we got so much that I bought another. One for upstairs, one for downstairs. And this is the 50-minute version, which *was* the Deal of the Day on Amazon and is less than the 40-minute version I bought last month.

Found finally a nice and subtle rear spoiler for the F33/F83, same shape as for the F82. Until yet not finally installed, was only first fitment test.
