What were you wondering about the racing line strut bar? I know a few people on here have it so ask away.

Race Line Strut Bar

Basicly is it any good and worth the price,

I've seen OEM and thier too expensive,

I know that there is others but dont know where to look,

Shopping about to have a window tint kit installed, not to bad if you do it yourself, but I have issues with my hands, osteoarthritis, and I have no idea of what to expect to have someone do it for me, any advise would be accepted

I've done the tints on my previous 3 cars & I got used to it after my 2nd try. The tricky part is having a steady hand to get a nice even cut at the edge of the windows. It can get a little difficult on the rear window with the squeegeeing, having the defrosters on the surface. It might be worth having it professionally done for about $150-$200. If you decide to do it yourself, defenitely research whats needed & step by step instructions. Glad to help if more info is needed.

Racingline STB and the MMI's are great together! I had them both and they made a HUGE difference in cornering!

Check Engine Light

Went out today to drive to work and the check engine light came on, Onstar even sent me a notice.

So it seems that I blew (overheated) an O2 sensor with the added air from the CAI.

Just figures, fix one thing and break another
