first off, in the subject line, you need to specify WHERE in the north-east your from

this is parking lot material, NOT a place to rant in here...

i'm sorry, it does suck, we are having a blizzard here right now......

Drive really fast especially if its coming down really hard and it gets foggy

I need the following.

- A pillar trim for the passenger side
- Glove Box.
- Trunk Lining
- Trunk itself.. (hopefully, you'll rear end someone)

Let me know by Wednesday please.

i just got my blizzaks after a little incident with a wall, and these things rock. Seriously dont drive on anything but winter tires, all seasons will get you around but not far.

car is fine for the most part...........bumper is scratched on the bottom, rims got scratched on passenger side, a little out of alignment, broke my grill. Doesnt really matter because i was gonna get new rims and a sportdesign grill anyway. Plus i was looking at a front lip to cover up the scratch. Things could have gotten a lot worse but they didnt thankfully. The blizzaks though make a world of difference. I beat my boss to work on sunday during the 2nd storm and he drives an SUV :lol:

so bad news/good news......im actually wondering how you scratched your rims and screwed up alignment........i did the same thing, but hit a curb, not a wall..........it's still off - ill get it fixed when i get the tires put on.........as long as you were planning on getting new pieces, i guess its all good.......

its a wall but the cement slants out on the bottom luckily. I hit the bottom part with my rims, if the wall was straight it would have scratched up my whole side :x
