Does anyone know a good european shop that wouldnt mind installing these parts?
..... and future modifications
Berk Motor Werks is also a good installer or euro parts (DP, IC etc.)

Where is everyone meeting up tonite? Got some free time might swing by . Still need help changing my PY side marker bulbs, I hate orange

OK so 7 tonight for sure right?

If I go to that...my shit will be dirty for tomorrow, lol...damn I sound like a wuss...just sayin.

Dez, I didn't have the best experience with Berts....I wouldn't recommend them necessarily...changing the signals is easy.....well, it was hard for me...as in getting those bastards to turn right....but some have been able to get them easy....def need to take the wheel/wheel well off so you can get a good straight on....

Can't stay too long tonight...have a 3 year old...hopefully she'll like all the noise...it'll be interesting...

Good meeting you guys!

Lots of good runs. I'm envious of the 6AT and gizmoto's sweet ride.

No, 12.1 was my best, so I left it there. Those tires are bald, so I think I'll need a new set to better that.

You guys let me know about the DPs; I'll buy some springs with the cash

Yes it was really fun, we should do it again! Great driving Ghost and awesome car. Gizmo your car is beautiful, I am sure with some ms109 and map7 you would be in 12s...

It was great meeting both of you.

Next Meet?

Looking at doing this the weekend before July 4th. So far just me and brother-in-law's cousin who has an S550, which handles ridiculously good for such a huge car...

Hey guys, sorry couldn't make it out that day . I do have one question though for the local wheel guys. Where do you get your wheels mounted and balanced? Picked up some wheels at DFW this past weekend and want to mount them ASAP! If you have a wheel guy that do "touchless" mounting or careful mounting for a reasonable price please let me know. Thanks!

You can go anywhere. I normally either go to Discount Tire, or a mom and pop since it'll cost me like $8. Just tip them and they'll take care of your stuff.

I just dealt with Discount tire buying new tires, 2 balances and a road force. Great customer service throughout....just getting the balance done right was a pain...just make sure you tell them to do it on a calibrated machine. Don't mention road force unless you get it back and they're not balanced perfectly. Then you can go back and demand that. The reason is it's time consuming and expensive..

Hey any of you know a good place to get tint? My guy is booked up for the next 2 weeks

I can't tell you a good place to go to, but I can tell you where not to go, Custom Sound. Horrible service and poor tint job, then when the guy finally finished with my car (4 hour wait from time he supposedly started) and drove it out he ran the front of the car right up against the curb of the parking space...
