People in this town need to learn to drive, guess what they didn't leave a note. This picture doesn't do much justice it's way worse than it looks.

That'll buff out.

But forreal...I know how you feel. I was down here a week and got that gash on my front bumper. Crappy honda paint + Crappy Springfield drivers = scratches and dents out the A$$.

Hahaha, It's the golf ball sized dent that won't buff out that I'm worried about, it actually goes to metal in the middle.

Well, I bought a new car....except it's a 2011 VW Golf! I just couldn't do a 3rd 8th gen civic (I've already had an '06 EX and an '08 Si), plus no Si's are available anywhere.

We need more people up in this bish. There are more out there, I know it. Two NHBP Si's spotted on campus, one FG2 w/ Mugen visors, and one FA5 with a bunch of stuffed animals on the dash, haha. Saw it out on the parking lot. C'mon people, this thread is bomb!

On a related note, installed Katsuz's old Typhoon V2 SRI, and if you see me around town ing everywhere, I apologize. Install went smooth, and I'm super pleased with it. Plus, Katsuz had super fast shipping... haha.

EDIT: Almost forgot! Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. I'm going to go pass out now.

lol yeah I'm driving the same way right now. Putting an intake on gives you a lead foot for a while. Too bad you can't hear it that much inside my car because my exhaust is so loud. But outside it sounds like sex.

By the way - I ran into a red Volkswagen GTI (black rear bumper) on Wednesday evening... had some fun smashing him into the ground. Poor choice of location though - South Campbell then onto James River Freeway... found out later those are two of the heaviest patrolled streets in Springfield.

Haha, well first of nice job. Springfield cops don't seem to care about much though. I've hardly seen people pulled over and I've lived here for about two years.

Basically, any parts of springfield with side-by-side lanes (battlefield from one end to the other, campbell, parts of glenstone, and sunshine past national going west) are heavily, heavily patrolled. Somehow, I haven't gotten a ticket with my leadfoot in the past almost 3 years of driving, but my time will come, I'm afraid..

Doug may have a point about the cops not caring about much, I've gotten away with tinted plates and no front license for a while, but they have quotas to fill and they'll bring down the hammer on you for racing moreso than just speeding.

Right, that's what what I was insinuating, I usually go 10 over the speed limit and get passed by cops all the time. You really gotta watch out on highway 13 on the north side of Springfield, Missouri Highway Patrol is all over that stretch, I got nabbed there going to KC a while back.

PROTIP: Never, ever completely remove your coolant reserve tank to add fluid to it unless you're removing the battery as well. It's impossible to get back in without complete removal of the battery. I spent a good hour and a half learning this JUST because I was replacing the coolant in my reserve tank. I left the cap off after topping it off the other night, and **** got in it.
