Pulled my front bumper off and noticed my pass side headlight bulb is blown. Ordered replacement D1S bulbs from DDM, and a replacement bulb for one of the interior LEDs that has gone.

Also, PM me your email deadcivic.

Does a plate in the front window fly in Oregon with the cops? It's like moths to a flame here with the cops and meter maids.

well. I've been driving with no plate. never got stopped a whole year.

But putting it there puts me on edge. I feel like it might draw more attention there than no plate at all. Oh well. we'll see I'm a few days from mounting it anyways. I'm sure it's not up to par tho.

no plate is better than a plate in the windshield, they see it in the windshield and pull you over for not having it down in front.

I drove my Cadillac to a free BBQ at the Cadillac dealership, and ate myself two free Hamburgers.

I got 5 free Lottery Tickets just for showing up, and I got a $50 Gift Card to a swanky restaurant for test driving a new 2.0T 2014 CTS.

IT VIBRATES YOUR BUTT WHEN YOU'RE BACKING UP!

Then I did a nice 1-2 pull in front of the dealership while leaving.

Gotta douche it up on the way out!

Lol douche it up. Nice. I run no plate here in California. They are traffic *****. I have never run a plate on any if my cars. And I have yet to be rung up for it. They usually get me for speeding and I try not to hassle them too much. Around here, the more you **** of a cop, the longer your list of fines becomes.

Pulling off the front bumper to install a plate relocater is over kill
Just jack the front up and take the lower skip plate/air dam off.

Yesterday I took the V to the local GM dealership to have a P0420 code cleared, hopefully a new cat ordered, and program my VIN into the newly installed CTS base model radio before the big audio installation. They tried to tell me the radio was going to need to be pulled and that it would cost $150. I laughed and said forget it. Two hours later they called and said they weren't going to be able to look at the car. Thanks for taking the appointment then.

Today I pulled my wife's car out of the garage and parked the V inside before the hail storm shows up in a few hours.

Sorry to say, but thought I'd be the first to admit it. The closest I got to the V today was while I walked past it. Damn neighbor cat! Foot prints up the hood and over the top.

Vac'd it out, applied a leather cleaner/conditioner to the seats, removed the dust from the exterior using one of those paraffin mops, hooked it up to a battery tender, put the cover on it, and rocked it to sleep till some time next spring.

fak that 150 to pull the radio. Dealers have no shame at all.

Today I douched out [like: ryridesmotox] lol. I down shifted on a v6 new camaro and redlined past him.... for being a dick my shift **** ******* popped off lol.

It felt so good to finally just gun she **** out of mine for once. NO traction... but good.
