I prefer a mocha taste so I stick with the Tatiana's or Drew Estate's Java, nice full-bodied mocha/java taste, rather smooth smoking as well.
Yourself?

As for the tire cleaner I picked it up at the local lumber yard for about $6. But it's working amazingly well.


FOUND IT!!!!!

Got my new two piece rotors installed while in CA (they look and feel awesome, thanks Kim at Professional Auto in Half-Moon Bay),

Did not get my rearview camera from iMIV installed. Couple of probems with that, one, camera doesn't work, so best I can figure, iMIV did not load the firmware patch that allows that, despite me sending my classic back to them for upgrade and I purchased camera for it at same time. two, not real happy about how far it will stick down, anyone have ideas on how to recess it in the blank spot left of the lift button (opposite key cover).

Also, still VERY unhappy about the intermittent peformance ot my Stage 3 from RICA. Like stage 2, it also appears to be susceptible to altitude, sometimes (and currently) limiting boost to 13 psi above 6000'. Not as bad as the stage 2 which would go into limp mode and limit to 6 psi, but still unacceptable. Car was a beast at sealevel in CA (full 20 psi). However, since I can't drive for a few weeks, it won't be able to piss me off too much in the near future.

Rave: Surgery was successfull, now have a dead guy's achilles tendon acting as my ACL. Blew out my right ACL in Jan playing Volleyball (and yes I blew out my left ACL playing volleyball in 2005 for those of you who were around and wondering).

Rant: Percocet is f**ing me up, can't sleep properly

Wearing: same shorts and tshirt from yesterday, can't shower for 3 days, so imagine I will be for near future.

On a seperate note, I have this cool water/blood intercooler device, trying to figure out how I can use it in the car... upgrade the water bladder and lines and wrap the turbo?
