that is really cool. but 90% of the time my car is there so the grass couldnt grow. i think tomorrow when i go ill look for the cheapest price per surface area. i just found out those ones i linked to are almost $15 and id need 20 just for 2 strips directly off the street lol.

My father told me about an exchange student who bragged about him having a piece of the berlin wall. They didn't believe him. So, he went back to germany, asked his dad if he could borrow his BRAND new mercedes, and got the piece of the wall. he couldn't get it to fit, so he got a forclift, put it on straps, and lifted it into the trunk. He drove all the way back to UK to show them and MAN were they shocked. after that, he drove back to germany, but he couldn't get the concrete wall out. it was stuck. his father was really worried and kept asking him about the mercedes. thats all i remember

According to YOUR specific owners manual, the max specified weight allowed in the trunk is 176 pounds.

Maybe its a safety precaution. It might take 177 lbs of moving weight to knock the back seat out should you hit something VERY hard.

I'm betting it'* because Air shocks /= conventional springs and hold less weight.
