I shifted in sport mode and floored my v6 to pass a few slow moving cars in the slow lane

Details? Is this a drop in or a lot of wiring/modding req'd? While I'd never buy Bose anything for my home, the Bose on my lemon was the only thing that worked and worked well...

Installed AVS Aeroguard on my black coupe. I forgot I had it on, and didn't notice it earlier when I got in my car to go home. Had to go outside to make sure it didn't fly off. Sure enough, still there, and hardly noticeable.


Dropping off the car to the body shop tomorrow. There was contact between the taillight and paint, which chipped it. Honda is covering it under warranty.

Did a gutter guard mod for the lower grille as a cheap 3 dollar insurance against 700 dollars for a new condenser.

Also did a upper grille block for more MPGs!

Hey...I'm not actually sure of the name of that place...it just says "car wash" on the outside. I didn't notice "Sam's" anywhere but it's the one on Route 234 as you come off of I-66 westbound. You drive about 1.5 miles and it's on the left.

That's a great car wash by the way. The brushes get so foamy. It's worth it to drive out there for me (about 17 miles one way). And it's only $4.50 to wash and rinse the entire car!

Most of the full auto places are about $8-$10 for their cheapest washes and $25-$30 for the deluxe ones...and neither get all the dirt off like you can when you wash it yourself!

Since this started yesterday I will say what went on yesterday... Took her to the dealer to investigate a sound similar to brake squeal when I accelerate from a stop. My thoughts were correct... bad torque inverter. Now waiting on American Honda to get to my ticket as the dealer wanted to wait and see what Honda wants to do... yay. At least I'm not in a rental.

Yesterday, drove home from Orlando. And NO, we didn't go to the mouse house. Today, drove to work and home. It's 2 weeks old yesterday, and have about 650 miles.
