  1. Which brackets did you use for the install? I used the set from Aardvarc Racing, and the brackets do raise the seats a bit. If you didn't use them, that may elevate the seats to the right level for you.
  2. So Slavs, Just wondering comrade...are you retired? I am a bit amazed with how prolific you are on the FAQ. Ample free time possibly? I grew up on a first world farm. Our tractor had large tires on the back and low profile tires on the front. So I guess in Slavs world that I am much more flexible on my choices for my 2002, and elevate myself to the Politburo no matter which choice I can make. Went with 15's and 55 tires to achieve the original total diameter of the stock wheels and tires. The 15's as stated above allow many more tire choices. Those balloon tires and wheels on that wagon: 1. Would never be safe at any speed on a 2002 2. Are only good for a max of 4 horsepower 3. Really would look like crap on an 02. But Slavs, if you wish, you can put those on your car and sip a bit of Vodka and reminisce about the smell of hay and horse manure. But what do I know comrade? , this Amerikanski likes his beer (from any country), his baseball/american football/lacrosse. etc. And yes I salute the flag at every sporting event. Because here, we can do whatever we want to our cars, and we can give our fellow 02's a hard time.....😁 in good fun. Cheers! and Выпьем за то, чтобы у нас всегда был повод для праздника – Vupjem za to, chtobu u nas vsegda bul povod dlya prazdnika (May we always have reason for a party)
  3. Back in the day, some of the dive bars I hung out in, you could just get shot.... For Free!
  4. Dude, San Fernando Valley and La La Land. Not even sure if those residents are on the same Planet. No sense of reality there. They feel they can charge anything they want, well, because they themselves are more valuable people (in their mind) because they live there.....
  5. After break in. Valvoline VR-1 and be done with it. All the zinc (not too much) and protection one would need. https://www.valvoline.com/about-us/faq/racing-oil-faq #3 on Carl's list above. Cheers!
  6. Like the ClassicAuto LEDs. I have been a little hesitant purchasing the kit. I am not mechanically inclined in the least.. I don't want to be the first fatality from a hot glue gun..... Cheers!
  7. That reminds me: The other night I came home late, and tried to unlock my house with my car keys. I started the house up. So, I drove it around for a while. I was speeding, and a cop pulled me over. He asked where I lived. I said, "right here, officer". Later, I parked it on the freeway, got out, and yelled at all the cars, "Get out of my driveway!" -- Steven Wright
  8. May become more of the standard moving forward as 245 parts are getting harder to come by and replacing it with a 4 speed may be the only affordable option.
  9. A bit of the issue is that appears the passenger side mirror on the remanufactured ones magnify for some reason. This makes the field of view pretty small. Plus It is a bit of a PITA to try and adjust that mirror from the drivers side seat. Please keep us posted as I am interested for a solution as well. Let us know how the amazon stick ones work out.
  10. B.O.T So far I think the prices are reasonable. They are not in the crazy Porsche range and some American Iron prices these days. The thing I get envious about is the massive availability of new manufactured and bolt on resto-mod parts for the Mopars, Chevy's, Fords etc. I believe there is one company where they make or sell enough new parts to build over 95% of the 65 1/2-70's mustangs from scratch. ( I know it's because they made so darn many of them) But this is the price we pay of participating in a sort of a niche market I guess.
  11. It will take awhile. Trying to strategize where the zipper and pockets will go.
  12. PM Harry, Very easy to work with. See if he will give you a price for a single Brake. Can't hurt.
  13. I am more a science based dude and political ramifications of engineering science can be an excellent way to rabbit hole one's attention from the actual creativity and engineering marvels that did and do occur. Even in the good ol' USA a lot of Military based technology does trickle down to the masses. (more than we like to admit). Remember it was the German scientists grabbed by the Russians that accelerated the space race and got Sputnik into orbit. It was our German scientists that got us to the Moon..... You will find too many connections in the past that would be able to stain many of the things we take for granted today. It is just better to marvel or nitpick at the engineering feat and tout its strengths and/or weaknesses. BMW, VW, Toyota, Nissan, Ferrari, Lamborghini etc, found some ways to kick our butts and forced our car companies to get better. Nothing wrong with that. Russia has found ways to make American Automobiles always look good 😀. Nothing wrong with that either. But what do I know, I ain't Toby..... Cheers!
  14. Try these: Very well made. Half price from BMW list.
