Swapped out the gross dash speakers w/ a pair of Infinity Reference 4002CFX Coaxials. Amazing difference. Great Investment.

Re-wrapped a few interior trim pieces that were starting tpo look like butt, with "PORNO red" faux leather.

Plasti-Dipped wheels to get an idea of how'd they look gloss black on a black car and definitely going to be sending the wheels out for powdercoating this week.

Bought 3 spoke steering wheel and newer shift knob from Heliguy.

Started my search for a suspension setup... Any advice anyone? Currently looking into a coilover kit.

Plasti dip was started a couple days ago . but it took awhile for the glossifier to to cure. Not really the best example for gloss black bc the glossifier gave the wheels a greyish tint, but I got the idea.

Took my 03 S in for 90K service and they found a leaky water pump. Good news / bad news I suppose.

Not great news, but at least it was caught before it went

Do you think you will still make the drive up here this weekend?

Which dashboard cam did you get? All the ones I saw had a screen built in and were kind of big, I like the way yours is hidden behind the mirror.

Did you take the airbag cover out to get the screws behind the trim? I can get the first few screws on either side of the long trim piece from behind the dash, but the airbag gets in the way of the middle screws.

Yep. There is a large aluminum frame back there that prevents access like mentioned in another thread.

The airbag is held in by 2 bolts (13mm iirc) and slides right out. Wish I had done this first as it makes getting the long piece out much easier.

I just had the ROW M030 suspension that I bought over a year ago installed today. We are in the middle of 7 or 8 days of rain in MN with no sun or dry roads expected until Saturday so I really can't try it out yet, but it rides great and the steering response seems really quick, probably due to the more aggressive alignment specs. There is a local Cars and Café Saturday and a German car show at a local Porsche dealer Sunday, so I am hoping the weatherman is right and we see the sun this weekend!

Took some pics of my interior for my hydrodip guy. Best thing i've done so far. Although litronics might be just a bit higher on the best list.

Awesome, did you do so yourself or did you pay for it? If so, how much?
