    Buying a Volvo-Houston area

    Looking for feedback about buying an owning a new Volvo suv. Because of svtp I’ve always known what my Ford purchases were actually being sold for so it makes it a no pressure situation. Does Volvo have a comparable “invoice +” type pricing that we typically shoot for or is there a percent...

    where are the fords at?

    After years of browsing this site obsessively i had backed off over the last 18 months or so. Partially from other hobbies taking my time and partially realizing that lusting for things you cant responsibly afford can wear on you. Now that i'm finding myself thinking about a new ride more and...

    why aernt there more places to race?

    it seems to me that Houston has the money in the car scene to support multiple drag strips and roll race locations. All I ever hear are complaints about royal purple being over crowded all the time. We have several motocross tracks that are getting the attendance to stay open and its far more...

    car is otherwise stock besides mufflers and stuff that shouldn’t matter. Put the stock tune back and drove it 110 miles. Sitting here now for a retest hoping all is good. Just a heads up for others. I didn’t expect it to be an issue

    How to get roof work done cheap

    It's actually pretty simple. 1. Be nice to the person in the office that takes your initial call. This person may not be the roofer or the estimator, but she/he will be giving the estimator the first impression we have of you as a customer. Unbelievable how people will talk down to the girls...

    Will a mpss 295/35 be stretched on...

    An 11" wheel? I have some 19x11's that stick out the fender just a C hair. As I understand it the mpss are very wide for the size so the 305/35/19s will have the tire poking out a little which I can't have. Im hoping the 295s will roll slighty inward on the 11" rim but not look stretched and...

    The beginning of fine swirl marks.

    I'm beginning to get some light swirl marks that I only see at night time under lights at say a gas station and at some angles around sunset. Is there a wipe on wipe off product to remedy this until I have the time/desire to do a whole paint correction process?

    Who refuses to spend their money on shiny rocks?

    Can't do it. Probably be forever alone but I just can't do it. How many people owe more on their cars and homes then they have in savings but are buying pointless rocks to prove you are an adequate mate? Eggs are so expensive and the economy sucks derp

    Put cats back on so now I hear my transmission whine....

    I've always thought the tranny sucked but tried to ignore it the best I can. I put my cats back on recently now I can hear it's like a super charger under acceleration. This car has been so frustrating. I've been going back to stock so hopefully the dealer shouldn't give me crap about warranty...

    Tire size decisions...

    If I run a 305/35 on an 11" rear, will a 255/40 on a 8.5 wheel look goofy from being .4" shorter. Next tire is a 265/40 but I'm worried it will look to full on the 8.5 wheel compared to the 305 rear on a 11".... 19" wheel problems...
