Re: (Jonsi Jonsi S40)

I all to familiar with hydro-meteorites, but "rain", I'm not sure what you mean. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>What shops are the rest of you PNW guys using for your mods, Indie or Dealer? Just curious. My dealer is pretty good here in Olympia (Topping Volvo). They have never hassled me about any Mods at all and regularly recommends IPD for upgrades.

Full-time college student (summer right now) and part-time computer tech for a dept on campus. Take care of 250-300 computers (myself and one other guy). Super easy (usually) and pretty good pay for a campus job. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Nice! We have one of those we take care of. Super tough, but ugly as hell in a cool hummer style of way... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> Just think, the money spent on that one computer could pay for a big turbo upgrade and a nice tune to boot. Crazy how expensive they are.

Re: Northwest BS thread, talk, chat, rant, rave, whatever! (carreragt7)

Yeah i know, this unit cost like 10K w/ the wireless bluetooth DiCE unit we use now for volvos lol <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I stare at my 20k in tools that i have and wonder why i ever choose to be a technician when i could have spend that money on a better investment like modding an S40 <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">
