@jay745 how's your MK6 is it still not running? I don't want to be known as a guy running an inaccurate website

I'm swapping the fenders + bumper (got a different set painted). The fenders are rolled and aren't rusted from paint cracking (tire rubbing).
While they're off I'll be doing the koni coilovers in the front (and ball joints possibly) and my oil pan once the screws come in (I rounded one or two).
And then I'll go to do the konis in the back.
Downpipe I'll do at my friend's because he has the nice o2 socket and has a lift (plus there's a chance that girl might be there and I'll shoot my shot again).
Sway bars I'll tackle another day since the one in the front you have to drop the subframe.
I've noticed a power loss between 2000-3000 rpms in 2nd, which means I'll have to start logging it and get revisions from Sneeky (75$) or be patient and do aux fueling kit and tune with Stratified (will do it eventually so that I can max out the K04).
Currently in the process of buying an 18z brake kit that was originally made my rotorlab.
In case y'all wanted to know all the stuff I'm doing.

Today's Cool Story Bro:
Went to my friends house to help him with a downpipe install and then do mine - didn't get around to mine because it got dark.
A few other bros show up and my friend's girlfriend and her friends come by. Turns out one of them is cute, like at least an 7.5/8 I'd say. Try and talk to her for a while as we're hanging around in the garage n all that, mutual chit chat - but no crazy flirting or anything. I didn't get her number or anything, figured I'd save it for next time.
I later find out that she's into girls from my friend.😖
If you don't hear from me by tomorrow it's because I've wrapped my car around a tree. :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: 😐
She might play for both teams?

There's a possibility. My friend said she's never been with a guy though.
Which doesn't help my chances, but is a really nice plus.
I already forgot what she looked like though, can't get caught up in this when there's so many other fish out there.
I really learned that I need to get outside more. Remote work means that I find myself not leaving the house for days at a time, and I don't have a really established group of friends.

At least you'd know you have something in common. You both like pussy. It's good to have common interests.

Even assuming the kind of outrageous price of $80/per oil change that's a lot of profit. That's over $200 left over for spark plugs, new filters and whatever tire air pressure checks they do.

I missed that it was 5 services at first. It's actually not terrible, just normal dealer pricing at that point.

I saw this shared somewhere else not too long ago.

I get that dealers have to change a premium and make money, but $310 for spark plugs is beyond crazy.
