And the ST! the latest one that is...
Speaking of blowers, can they be fitted to 50cc motorbikes?

Don't you think that's a bit pointless?

and another will buy you a new steel rim, tyre and maybe part of the labour for sorting out your subframe and suspension/steering.

I earned the money for that crash in just over 3 weeks. Result.

Not something I'd happily do every day, but still..!

My ex had the exact same car. I loved it. A great car to drive especially for the money. The only thing about it I didn't like was the rear looked kind of "big" from the back, kind of like my ex actually... Its an awesome car, congrats. I thought about one myself but I ended up leasing a Jetta.

Only now I realise how the rear bumper messes up the lines of the design ! That thing is huge !

As an example on how it should be IMO, i attached a picture from some Dutch Ford club. Pity of the "tuning" though.

I realized I'm actually not a fan of the Euro bumpers...makes the car look stubby.

Probably just what I'm used to though. If we'd had the Euro bumpers over here and the US ones everywhere else, I'd be saying that they're gargantuanly huge and hideous.

This. Magellan RoadMate 300 GPS Nav. Scored it with a broken windshield mount for $100 (retails for $300). 15 seconds of supergluing and two hours of drying time later, here it is in my car; still haven't decided how to make the cord look less afterthoughty while still maitaining its portability, though. As a side bonus, one of the color schemes nicely matches my cars instrumentation, so it's almost like a semi-custom job!

And you're right, I don't like GPS. For me, it's still a backup to paper maps.
