    • I try to be careful when it comes to accessorizing Surreptitious... don't want her looking trashy... So these became available....




      and I jumped on them... fit isn't bad...





      They are just propped in there for now, I'll need to come up with a method to mount them securely as the original mounts were not included

      • Pretty much since she has been roadworthy... she has had an annoying vibration at the front of the car when @ idle. It was slightly embarrassing as it idle, and made noise. For the longest time I had thought it was the air dam vibrating against the custom bumper. So I decided today I had had enough and I looked at what I could do. First, I tried to adjust the bumper... to no avail, the vibration continued. Then I climbed under the front while it was idling... and I saw the problem...... The air dam was indeed vibrating against something, but it wasn't the bumper. The airdam is shaped in such a way that the back side that fits to the lower valance, was vibrating.



        I've fitted some foam weatherstripping between the air dam and the valance panel and the vibration is GONE!

            More repairs.......... well it has been over 7 years and close to 25k miles..........

            Lost one cylinder all of a sudden on Tuesday... she sounded like a Subaru



            I pulled plug wires and #1 cylinder was not firing I swapped #1 and #4 @ the coils, and now #4 was not firing. Borrowed a friends coil pack, and she fired up on all 4.

            Decided to purchase a pair so both will be new/fresh
