800 for a wheel? lmao
It's only going down about 1" because the highways up here suck and it is my wife's daily driver. The Jetta rode great on the roads in Oregon but bottomed out here a lot.

Brian, just so you know, I hate you and your car.

Only because I am super jealous, though. It looks fantastic.

They have roads now? Wow a lot has been improved. j/k

Cincy roads aren't any better, Dayton makes me love the 4x4 at times.

The fog lights came today. BUT.. I got the bulb number from sylvanias website while my wife was working, it said the fog was an H3 so that's what I ordered. So I pulled bumper the trim under the bumper to install them and found that the bulbs are actually 9006.
Anyway I guess I'll have them next week now.

My wife finally just got home, but everything is wet and rainy, and I'm feeling lazy. lol

I might get bored and do it tonight but I wouldn't count on it. The title finally showed up too, so I can get it inspected and tint the windows. So far they have not even looked at the last two cars I registered but just in case, I want to wait for the window tint.

Why does one muff look all dirty and crusty, and the other one is all squeaky clean?


Did I miss something?

Well my wife had my truck today again (scary I know) and the video camera was in there.
Revving it while sitting still doesn't really do it justice anyway. Maybe I'll try something tomorrow. For now I'll find some other videos with Legacy GTs and magnaflow.
I had the windows tinted today also. Nothing super dark though, 28% on the front and 17% on the back. Overall the car looks and sounds so much better. Unfortunately nothing else is going to be done for a while, until I fill out that stupid insurance paperwork, get copies of medical bills and get a little more money. On a positive note, I have my within reach a set of new Volk 18" wheels that I can get for cost, but I'm not 100% sure which ones they are yet...



Some youtube samples from other people... (wtf why does my embedded youtube never work?!)

Boring in-cab highway drive.
YouTube - Legacy GT Magnaflow CBE Highway Cruise

D-bag tooling around.
YouTube - Magnaflow

The videos don't really do it justice in my opinion, but I doubt I'll be able to pick up anything better with a video camera anyway. It actually sounds the best during 'normal driving' if you ask me. Nice and low and rumbly. haha

lmao. I love when that happens.

The only thing I don't like is that it sounds mean. I mean I love it, but... It was fun to pull away from other unsuspecting cars. Now it stands out a little because of the sound. But it is a good sound so it's okay.

Here are a couple of updated pictures, it is dark and stormy so they kind of suck. I figure if I start a bunch of other threads I'll **** someone off. I left the video camera in the truck again today, oh well. Again the tint is 28% front and 17% back. The yellow fogs went in today as well. There are silverstars in the low beam projector and I'm still waiting on the silverstar high beams.

Cody I know the pictures are a little dark but feel free to photoshop it if you are bored. Perhaps a 1-2" drop and slightly bigger wheels.





I'm sure you can see the condensation in the headlights.
The first bit appeared yesterday while driving home in a heavy downpour. Mainly on the bottom, inside corner. When I pulled into the garage and noticed it, I removed the high-beams and let them air out. I could not see any actual water drops inside the assembly at all. I only saw 1 spot that I thought could possibly get a drop or two of water in it. I pulled the bumper off and took the headlights out again last night. I removed the caps behind the projector to let them air out more, and took a flashlight to all the corners looking for water, and again I couldn't find a drop. I decided to run a small bead of black silicone around the top of the headlight where it comes together, nice and clean with no holes or gaps. I let them air out in the house last night for almost 18 hours. I put them back on the car this afternoon, and drove again in some light rain and they steamed up a little bit again. I pulled the highbeams again and ran the lows for quite a while to hopefully get more steam out, seemed to helped for now. I'm irritated as hell because I can't figure out where the moisture is coming from. They look to be sealed perfectly and I can't find any actual water in there. It has been in the high 60's and low 70's, 100% humidity. I'm hoping that they will eventually dry up. Any suggestions? I'm worried that if my wife takes it to work and it rains all day they might fog up enough to have a drop run down the face of it.
