@Sway: yeah man whats up? The paint on my car is starting to flake, and it makes me feel bad every time I take it out on a grocery run. I want to store her and save up to start restoring it since it's creeping on 200,000 miles on the clock. It was the last car my grandfather drove before he passed and my uncle sold it to me, so it's staying with me for life and I want to make sure it lasts that long.

And I have my sights set on an XRS. The Honda will get stolen or broken into at some point, the Scion is too small for me, and my brother would disown me if I bought a MazdaSpeed3 since he owns one lol. Plus I want dat 2zz scream: http://youtu.be/ak6RSz8JY1c

Damn, sucks about the paint and Damn again, 200k! Nice, good to hear you wanna keep it for as long as you can.

Let us know if you get that XRS, can't go wrong with one for sure. I've been good....actually been doing a lot of stuff to my Sportcross again.

My SportCross was just at Toyota for a balljoint replacement last week. Now, the horrible squeaking while turning is gone, but the wheel has started shaking violently when driving over 70 km/h (43.5 mph) or while braking..

Also, I found out that the brake shield on my front right side was completely rusty and hanging loose/rubbing on the disc, so I tore that off. Anyone know if a replacement is expensive? I'm guessing it's a simply DIY-job to get it on there, at least
