So I finally got the Annoying GOLD decal off the trunk. It was RIGHT next to 93... annoying.

Oh and I got my tag on. http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/l...e/DSC00618.jpg

I still need to get my euro "turbo" tag on the front and I'm a little nervous about just screwing it up in there. Anyone with some suggestions would be most welcome, yet again.

Thanks y'all :)

Went out and got it tinted, just went down to 35%

get yourself a spoiler off of ebay. I got myself one for around $100.00 the other day, same color as yours-

AUPilot09 06-21-2008 02:58 PM

Found some spoilers on ebay, probably going to order early next month.
Got some terrible quality issues with my car though, I'm really getting upset with that.
1. Glovebox: just need to get them to put it in now.
2. Shift knob: Fallen off TWICE while driving now. wtf?
3. Floor Mat: Drivers side mat has a hole, plastic holder separated and the screw fell through the carpet and is now under the carpet and the holder is of course not holding it so it sometimes gets caught on the clutch pedal. Geeze
4. My tint has bubbles in the drivers window. geeze.
5. Drivers Seat: Squeaks like a mofo over bumps, WD-40 take care of that?

few other things not quality related, I'm supposed to have a front mounting bracket, Don't. I'm supposed to have the cover for the keyhole on drivers side, Don't.
Other than that, I think I'm ok. meh.

Anyone know anything about these wheels?

MSW Type 11
or these
Borbet Type XL
or those in silver
Borbet Type XL Silver

Thanks for y'all's time. :)

Wheels look sweet. As far as the shift knob just put some super glue on it and it's taken care of. The same thing happened to mine and I've seen a bunch with the same problem. For the tint, the bubbles are supposed to be there for a couple of days, you just can't touch it. If it has been a while and they're still there, I would take it back to whoever did it-

Topher 06-26-2008 05:37 PM

My shift knob kept falling off.

The dealer used loctite.

Hasn't fallen off since.

Ugly huh? Just because they're not BBS RK II's? :p

Yes, those are all hideous.

Try to find some Aero take offs or something.

Those make me sick.

No seriously.

I vomited.



Twice.

AUPilot09 06-26-2008 09:47 PM

You're so funny. :) That's gotta be why we like you around here.

I asked, so you answered, thanks. As for Aero take offs? Not as familiar as I take I should be.

(Hope you got some food to stay down, hate going to after such an experience)

Topher 06-27-2008 11:53 AM

Kinda like this:

Look at this site. Then just keep an eye on ebay.

AUPilot09 06-29-2008 04:05 PM

oh nice. I actually really really like those.

I kinda like these, but not really the red, but the rest.
split 5's with inserts

It really is. Now I'm going to have to get the Aero kit, e-codes, and fogs..... $$$$ gonna get spent... sigh. :)

Fame 07-02-2008 01:42 PM

The Aero wheels look really good, but it looks as though they cost more than any of the chrome ones from tirerack-

AUPilot09 07-02-2008 02:22 PM

Yeah... Good thing I'm not looking to get wheels any time soon, or I should say, Good thing I don't NEED them.


In other news: Went to the dealership today. Dear god. over 4.5 hours for them to
1. Replace the glovebox door
2. "Cement" my gear shift knob back on
3. Replace the drivers door mat holder.

Also while there they were spraying wasp nests around the building, and guess where the car was while they were spraying? You guessed it. Right underneath the spray. Yeah.
I didn't see a single new Saab on the lot either, where they used to be there were CTS' and XLRs.

Guy was nice enough, and I needed to wash my car anyways. So I got back to AU and washed it before returning to my apt. Hurray.

Next mission is to get the bubbles in the tint taken care of. Drivers door bubbles showed up day 3 and haven't gone away and it's been something like 3 weeks or so.

Anyone have experience mounting those little lip spoilers? (I'm sure somebody here does) Is the adhesive tape that usually comes with them plenty good enough to hold them? Anything else I should know about them before I order one from eBay?

Thanks again fellas. :)

I've put a lip spoiler on a friends M3. All that we used was 3M Adhesive tape. It's been on for about 2 years and numerous 150 mph + runs.

Curlymurt 07-02-2008 03:40 PM

That's poor that the dealer had your car and didn't even wash it after. It's not a great wash, but wash nonetheless. And, I'm sure the adhesive tape is fine as long as everything is clean. I haven't read anything about it not being sufficient.
