      There was little doubt just now on my way into work, in 3 inches of fresh powder, they spray a **** ton more than when I had driven it in the rain with the OEM sized tires on. Furthermore, in the mile drive from service last night, there was salt spray all along the side of the car, that had be washed about a couple hours before. Its definitely not ideal, but I do not want to spend money right now on tires for the rest of this season, with the move and all. Additionally, if I use these for the next 3 months, I feel a lot better about giving htem away after this season, as it will have been 5 years with them (but still less than 15k miles). They are WRG3s, so they were not cheap, an they do a damn good job for not being a full on set of snows.

And its not mutually exclusive with Erik. I have build many other great friendships with other active members since that point. In fact, 3 of them have been over to Eriks house and even slept on his couch. Which is just so great to me.

      And to think, it all started with a 675 dollar 4runner.
      I would, in heartbeat, go to Chicago for another car.
      I hope to get to Erik's at somee point.

      Once she found out I was only 15mm I never got the chance to do any poking.

      Just when you get so close!!!

      Yesterday, got 3 or so inches of snow, it was so much fun to get it out and slide around a little bit. It has been a long time since I had a stick, with snow and a good set of snow tires. The car handled well, stopped sharply and I was able to stick the tail out quite a bunch. "Man this thing is so nice" I believe went through my head. That was actually the thought when I parked it.

      Last night, It got as cold as it had been all winter and when I get in it this morning, the airbag light was on. I assumed it had to do with a connector was too cold and it would go away, but figured why not send it over to Alex. He still had to finish up with the washer system, so he was able to knock that out, which is great, especially with the recent snow, there was a concern with salt build up on a windshield I couldn't clean easily.

      Then he ran the code for the airbag light and it seemingly is not good. The Airbag Control Module is done. I guess it is common to happen in really cold weather. Well ****.

      ECS has a new one for like 800 bucks

      I am going to try to avoid going that route for now. Alex has a friend that is parting out B5 and may have one that I can get for cheap. Hopefully, like really cheap.

      So basically, I traded one warning light for another one

      Untitled by smooremin, on Flickr
      (I had ESP off for parking lot shenanigans)

      Hope to find out about the module in the next few days. I will say, I really did feel that way about the car when I parked it yesterday. It is a really nice car. The way it slid and the control that was there, when in the power range, was fantastic. Yes, I would like it to have more power, but do I really need it? Probably not. It's a great little thing when its on boost and you aren't boosting the piss out of it (like my stg3 avant). Nearly seems perfect for sliding around in fresh snow.


      Even if I have to get a new module, Im not even mad *Shrug*

      What’s $800 between you and.... Well, just you.

      Glad it wasn’t anything more serious.

      You could always just.... you know, pull the bulb for airbag light.

      Ever since EPilot deleted all of your posts in his thread, this thread hasn’t been working right.

      I can’t see any new posts on the computer or browser on the phone. But I see it on Tapatalk.

      Guy really takes things personal I guess.
