I just bought a ticket to see DragonForce tonight! Can't wait, even though I'm expecting them to perform poorly as they usually do live. Should be exciting to see them anyways.

Verran, that's gotta be one of the ugliest cars I've ever seen! Right up there with the Fiat Multipla :lol:

You either love it or hate it. I expect plenty of the latter :) I love it though. VERY light, great gas mileage, and with factory installed TRD Springs, Shocks, Struts, and Sway-Bar, it is a blast to drive! And you won't see another one like it. They only made 2000 :)

@RMA, RMA the sticks now and then sell them ;)

It's seriously just not worth it to me. Isn't that sad? With the shipping costs for RMA, I'd actually rather just throw these in the trash and buy a better set for about $10 more once I need to (which right now, I don't).

Retired. After 7 years, it was starting to need more work than I cared to put into it. Nothing major, but just stuff I didn't want to do. Plus I wanted 4 doors (for my dog, mostly :P), better mileage, and better reliability (try beating Toyota there).

Maybe if I lived in Germany. As it stands, getting VW parts in the US is a pain in the ., not to mention expensive. I'll stick to my 08 Civic Coupe I just bought. No fancy Si, but hella good gas mileage and fun to drive as a 5-speed. But, to each his own. :)

Graciously recommended from KB, is some muffricken Christian death metal. It is a must hear, it pushes envelopes, explores new ground. Words can't describe just now incredibly awesome this is. Cue the alter smashing, bench flipping, and bible reading while thrashing away at guitars and drums.

I witnessed regional Special Olympics and Challenge Day; there's far more intellect there than there is in internet arguments.
