    hmmm well hopefully the dealership gives it a listen, I almost want to send an email to the service manager and get him to listen.. but I also don't want to be that guy the fluid did look pretty crusty when I swapped it for the ford stuff!

    it shifts like butter and drives really good.. other then the strange noise it makes... is there anyway possible a bad carrier bearing could cause this noise? on the pass side axle?

    Oh hai.

    Any of you fine gents who have worked with a pro-tuner mind sharing your experiences with regards to turnaround times between sending logs and receiving revisions? The tuner I'm dealing with right now seems pretty slow- like I'll send logs on a Tuesday and they'll tell me there's to much knock and find better fuel on the following monday... (like... at least LOOK at the logs. If they're shit you can tell me right away rather than me wasting a week when i could have been logging) Or i'll wait a week before getting a revision after sending clean logs.

    I know this is a busy time of year for them so it could just be down to that, but I'm a little disappointed with the way communication has been happening and the length of the process. The tunes/revs themselves have been great so no complaints there. I'm just curious if i'm being a whiny shit and this is normal, or if other people usually experience faster turnaround.

    So I think you probably nailed it. Busy time of year. Think all you can do is give constructive feedback in a nice way re: communication and hope it works out.

    At least I'm applying my logic as a consultant for 10 years, and that when you get overwhelmed two things apply:

    * biggest accounts take priority
    * noisiest account usually gets feedback (then end of line)
    * those providing constructive criticism in a positive manner might get bumped

    No idea if others work that way. Used Stratefied Tuning for OTS+ (which clearly has a much faster and less intensive turn around) but results were fast. I was also off peak season (fall).

    I had a slight issue with my tuner.....

    He got upset with me when I told him I would like to run 91, I'm not into searching for 94 if I'm travelling.... so he basically got all disgruntled and told me he would tune my car for shitty gas... I'm probably going to go with Freektune next.

    When I did my tune they would let me know within 1 business day if there was anything pressing with my logs...otherwise it would take 3-4 business days for revised map. I had my tune done couple years ago around this time as well

    Ok. So they're not too bad on turnarounds, its just the lack of communication on issues with the logs that i'm still a little annoyed with tho.

    For the record my tuner is Stratified, tuning for u94 but I asked about 91 and they had no issues working with a 91 oct tune for my power goals.

    I need touch up paint for my MS6, 27A red.

    Anyone have suggestions? I wanted to get a Dr.Colourchip kit but they do not sell in Canada (anymore) and a trip to the US is a bit excessive for just this one thing.

    Napa or CarQuest can mix up a custom can for around $25 based on your colour code.

    How much do you require @pwdunmore? I too am going to need some, maybe. Had one of those stupid bubbles forming under the vinyl on drivers door. So now in the process of doing the vinyl delete except it hasn't been warm enough to make the job easy. Undecided whether to leave that area black ie. paint it black or to paint it to the body color which is same as yours 27A.

    I need enough paint to do lots of small rock chip touch ups.

    Do you have pics of what is happening to your vinyl? @Como

    See there's a rust spot. It was bubbling up and pushing out he vinyl. So I pulled vinyl off in that area. Now just trying to remove all of the vinyl. Then decide whether to leave it red or paint it black again after.

    Wanted to address it quickly as my 3 has that issue and it took off out of control.

    Picked up the piece from JRP for around 20 bucks I think...installed it and also put copper gasket maker around it to seal it better

    So time to replace the shocks and struts. I'm pretty sure I'm going to go Bilstein B12 w/ ProKit springs (vs Sport which is the more aggressive and lower option). Not really looking for drop, but a firmer ride from stock (I swapped back to stock from my Corksport coilovers due to them mostly failing over the winter). Doing some research for the price point I want (< $1500), seems like the B12 are a good all around kit that would firm up the ride, but be still pretty good for a daily driver. I take my kids to school a couple times a week, but otherwise I park the car as I work from home.

    I do want to do an occasional autox and maybe one (or two) track days a year.

    Thoughts? Could do the Koni Yellow + springs combo, but thinking the Bilsteins with matched springs (whatever that really means) might just be the easier set it and forget it option. I'll be installing myself.

    That's been the general impression I've gotten in research. No one seems to get fired for buying bilstein

    Look at the Swift Spec-R instead of the Prokit.

    Well, the B12 comes with the Eibach springs, so not much option there. And I've heard that before, but could you elaborate? Random brand pimping is useless without backing data

    Quick research seems to suggest the Spec-R are a bit stiffer, and maybe better suited to track/cross. I'm likely going to leave the ProKits on initially, see how they feel with some work, then decide if I need to change springs. What is more likely is that I do the whole corner balancing thing, match springs rates to the corner weights for a better harmonic front/rear, and then if necessary, look into some sway bars if I find things are still a little all over the map.

    I was on prokits and switched to Swift R

    Good stuff, but either would be fine I'm sure
