Default What did you do to your car today?

Just about every automotive forum that I am a member of has a "what did you do to your car/truck/suv" thread, but we don't, so I thought I would get one started.

I went to my local Pick and Pull and found myself a factory Nissan Shift knob for $12, and picked up 5 feet of 0 Gauge stereo wiring for free. I also adjusted the E-Brake lever on my 240 so it works properly again.

Your turn!

Well I did this yesterday but I picked up a 9" K&N filter and some ABS pipe to make an intake for my car. I will finally be able to hear some blower whine

I ordered a set of rear EBC slotted rotors and some thermoquiets for my 240...my rear brakes have been sounding like an angry woman for the last couple days.

I order my final rim hub a few days ago, came in the mail today, i cleaned it and polished it.
Placed it on the rim, all wheels looking sharp. I'm happy in the end.

Drove it for the first time in two days. I took the privilege of shutting my music and ac off and just listening to my vehicle purr in this cool weather. That and breaking the tires loose at the stop light while shifting from first to second.
