Thanks guys!

Yeah, its easiest to just let it dry and peel it off. I left it til yesterday when it was dry completely, and it came off much easier.

I'd love to do the entire car in a chameleon color. DYC has a couple videos of them.

that looks cool but if you add all the extras and they say you have to have a ton of coats it was going to be like 600-800 bucks just for materials. i have been thinking about painting my car so i have been pricing things out, there is a site online that i can get a gallon each of the high build primer, paint and clear for a little over 300

5 minutes after I took this pic, my car stalled in the middle of one of the busiest intersections in the city because my intake fell off. I managed to coast it back into the lane at the light. Popped the hood, put the intake back in place, and good to go. The people stopped next to me thought it was pretty funny. Me, not so much.

Intake popped off??

I've had the air duct "fall" off at the MAF. Sometimes a gust of wind will cause the engine to stumble. Even with the hood open.

Surprising, when that little piece of MAF sensor breaks off and falls into the TB, it can cause some serious havoc too.

The elbow in my cold air intake was not as secure as I thought it was, and it came out of the piece on the throttle body. What sucks about the series 3 is the separate maf and TB. So it was running lean and throwing a P0171.
